Dodgers sign Wright, Perez to 1-year deals

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Dodgers inked relievers Jamey Wright and Chris Perez to one-year contracts on Tuesday.

Later in the day, they also locked up infielder Juan Uribe to a two-year contract.

"Juan was a major player in our success last season," said Dodger general manager Ned Colletti. "His play at third base, leadership in the clubhouse and clutch hitting helped the club immensely."

Uribe, 34, batted .278 with 22 doubles, 12 home runs and 50 RBI in 132 games last season. The career .253 hitter will be entering his 14th big-league campaign next year.

Wright finished 2-2 with a 3.09 earned run average in 66 appearances for the Tampa Bay Rays in 2013. The 39-year-old right-hander spent 2012 in Chavez Ravine, going 5-3 with a 3.72 ERA in 66 contests.

Heading into his 19th pro season, Wright holds a 92-126 record and 4.82 ERA in 658 games (247 starts) for 10 clubs.

Perez spent the last four-plus seasons with the Cleveland Indians, racking up 124 saves and an 11-17 record and 3.33 ERA. Last season, he finished 5-3 with a 4.33 ERA and 25 saves in 54 games.

In addition, LA also inked reliever J.P. Howell to a two-year contract plus a vesting third-year option.

The 30-year-old Howell posted a 4-1 mark with a 2.03 ERA for the Dodgers in 2013.
