The Texas Rangers have signed righthanded pitcher Jamey Wright to a minor league deal that will pay him $1 million if he makes the team, per the beat guys on Twitter.

Wright spent last season with the Dodgers, putting up a 4.35 ERA in 70 innings over 61 games.  He has pitched in 19 different seasons, including 2007 and 2008 with the Rangers, and while he was a starter in the first part of his career, he's carved out a niche as a reliever since 2008.

Wright gives the Rangers a veteran who provides bullpen depth.  I'd be surprised if he breaks camp with the team, and would guess he'll be in Round Rock to start the year.
