The Chicago Cubs bolstered the left side of their bullpen Wednesday night by agreeing to terms on a one-year contract with free agent left-hander Wesley Wright.
Wright, 28, was not tendered a contract Monday night by the Tampa Bay Rays. Wright posted a 3.69 ERA in 70 games with the Houston Astros and Rays. He has a lifetime 4.37 ERA in six seasons. Wright posted a 2.92 ERA in 16 appearances with the Rays after being traded by the Astros for cash considerations.
Wright will lend up to a Cubs bullpen that includes left-hander James Russell, who has appeared in 151 games over the past two seasons.
