I’m not gonna say I haven’t been on top of Kip Wells’ 2012 season, but I didn’t even realize that he had caught on with the Padres following a glorious ten-day stretch with the White Sox back in April.
Wells has been at Tucson since May and has pitched in seven games. He has an ERA of nearly 5 in that time and has walked 20 guys while striking out only 16 in 38 innings. So naturally the Padres have called him up for a spot start against the Astros tomorrow.
Wells hasn’t pitched in the bigs since 2009. His last action was for the independent Long Island Ducks in 2010, where he started five games and had a WHIP of 1.519. If he loses to the Astros tomorrow it will make for an even 100 losses on his career. So he’s got that going for him. Which is nice.
