Seattle chose to keep Jason Bay over Wells, who’s hit .246 with 25 homers and a .752 OPS in 656 plate appearances as a big leaguer. He has very good power and can play all three outfield spots, so Wells can provide some value even if he’s likely stretched as a regular.
Of course, considering how active the Blue Jays are with waivers he might be back on the wire shortly.
