[edit] Biographical Information

Jamey Wright was originally drafted out of high school by the Colorado Rockies in the first round (28th overall) of the 1993 Amateur Draft. He made his major league debut with the Rockies in 1996. Beginning his career as a starter, he bounced from organization to organization and between AAA and the majors for most of his career and moved to the bullpen in 2005 during his second stint in Colorado.

The first season he had an ERA under 4 was 2007, when he pitched 20 games (nine starts) with the Texas Rangers; he went 4-5 with a 3.62 ERA that season; his final career start also came that season.

Wright earned his first major league save in his 500th career appearance on July 5, 2011 while with the Seattle Mariners. It took him until his 18th major league season to pitch in the postseason. He finally made it with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2013, when he was used twice in relief against the Boston Red Sox in the Division Series; unfortunately, he gave up 4 hits and 3 walks in 2 innings, letting 4 runs score for an ERA of 18.00.
