|Cubs, Wesley Wright agree to deal |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(12/4/13) The Cubs have signed free-agent pitcher Wesley Wright to a one-year deal believed to be for $1.425 million, USA Today reports.
Wright made 70 appearances between the Astros and Rays last season, going 0-4 with a 3.69 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 55:19 K:BB ratio in 53 2/3 innings.
|Rays opt not to bring two back |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/2/13) The Rays non-tendered outfielder Sam Fuld Monday, one of just two players not offered a contract prior to Monday's deadline. Fuld has been a reserve for the Rays over the last two season, and put up a .199/.270/.267 batting line in 176 at-bats last season while making $725,000.
Reliever Wesley Wright was the other player not tendered. He put up a 2.92 ERA in 16 games after being acquired from the Astros. He was paid $1.025 million last season, and was likely facing a pay raise.

|Looking at the Astros' closer candidates |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/29/13) The Astros have yet to name a closer to replace Jose Veras, who they traded to the Tigers Monday, and if I had to guess, I'd say they go with a committee to start out. Hector Ambriz and Josh Fields were both mentioned as candidates this spring, and you have to figure Wesley Wright will factor against lefties.
But inevitably, every committee leads to one guy stepping up and claiming the role for himself, and the obvious candidate to do that here is Jose Cisnero. He's a hard-thrower with strikeout-per-inning stuff, and though his 3.48 ERA and 1.48 WHIP don't seem like anything special, both are skewed by a particularly ugly outing on May 11 in which he gave up eight hits and six earned runs in 2 2/3 innings. Remove it from the equation, and he has a 2.33 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the year.
Still not impressed? Yeah, OK. Well, everyone left in the Astros bullpen has a high ERA and WHIP, which is probably the takeaway here. Though Cisnero is the reliever to target in deep leagues where saves are nowhere to be found on the waiver wire, you probably shouldn't bother with him outside of those leagues.
