Jamey Alan Wright (born December 24, 1974 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) is an American right-handed Major League Baseball relief pitcher for the Seattle Mariners.

Wright started his major league career with the Colorado Rockies in 1996 and pitched for them until 1999. Over the next 4 seasons, he pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers, St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals. He returned to the Rockies in 2004 and played there for 2 more years.

He signed a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants organization after the 2005 season and was brought to spring training in 2006 as a non-roster invitee. Following a strong spring training performance, Wright was promoted to the major league roster and named the team's number five starter, beating out Kevin Correia and Brad Hennessey for the job. On August 10, Wright was taken out of the rotation, replaced by Hennessey.
