Casper Wells is on the move again, as the White Sox have acquired him from the Athletics for cash considerations.
Wells is now with his fourth organization in the past month. His journey began when the Blue Jays claimed him off waivers from the Mariners after he lost out to Jason Bay for a roster spot during spring training. However, he was designated for assignment five days later. The Athletics acquired him from the Blue Jays for cash considerations just one week ago, but he was designated for assignment again yesterday when Yoenis Cespedes was activated from the disabled list. He could be a useful reserve outfielder with Chicago, but he probably shouldn’t get too comfortable.
Wells, 28, went 0-for-5 in three games with the Athletics. He owns a .244/.314/.431 career batting line and a .746 OPS, including an .827 OPS against southpaws.
