Jamey Alan Wright (born December 24, 1974 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) is an American Major League Baseball relief pitcher who is currently a free agent. He bats and throws right-handed.

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.

On November 1, 2006, the Giants declined their option on Wright for the 2007 season, making him a free agent. On January 25, 2007, he signed a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training with the Texas Rangers. Wright made one short start for the Rangers before being placed on the 15-day DL. Kameron Loe claimed his spot in the rotation. However, after returning from the DL, Wright returned to the rotation.

On February 10, 2009, Wright signed a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals and was invited to spring training.

Wright and his wife, Marnie, have one daughter, Presley and sons, Jett Allen and Kingston Cash Wright. Wright graduated from Westmoore High School in Moore, Oklahoma.
