Royals add depth with new, old pitcher

The Royals have added some extra depth to the pitching staff on Monday by inking former Royal Jamey Wright, 34, to a one-year deal with a Major League invite to Spring Training.
Wright, a 13 year vet of the Royals, Rockies, Giants, Rangers and Brewers, went 1-2 with a 4.26 ERA with Kansas City in 2003. He went 8-7 with a 5.12 ERA in 75 relief appearances with Texas last year - his first since pitching exclusively in relief.
Wright, 6-foot-5, 230, boasts a 79-110 career major league record. He will be competing for a long relief role in the bullpen in 2009.
