Found April 22, 2013 on Minus Twenty-Two:
The A’s announced on Monday they picked up outfielder Casper Wells from the Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations. Wells was designated for assignment by the Jays on April 15 after they claimed him on April 10 from the Mariners, who had also DFA’ed him. Tough month for Wells. Wells will become the A’s fourth outfielder and is expected to arrive in Boston on Tuesday. Outfielder Michael Taylor is probably going to be sent back to Triple-A to make room for Well. Taylor is batting 0-for-6 since being called up to replace Yoenis Cespedes when he was placed on the 15-day DL. It appears Wells’ time with the A’s could be limited, though. Cespedes is due off the DL on Sunday and he’ll probably take Wells’ spot on the active roster. Wells does play all three outfield postions and has success against left-handers, but unless he can play in the middle infield, the A’s would have no room to keep him around. Because he’s is out of options, he’d need to clear waivers before the A’s can se...
