Rays Claim LHP Reliever Wesley Wright Off Waivers (Updated)

The Tampa Bay Rays claimed LHP reliever Wesley Wright off waivers Monday, reports Marc Topkin. The now former Astros reliever will join the Rays Tuesday, while a corresponding move is expected to come down the pike shortly. Wright was presumably let go for salary concerns — he was the highest paid Astro on staff at $1.15M this season, and was acquired for cash considerations.
