Casper Wells has played for approximately 100 teams this season, getting passed around on waivers like some sort of outfielder version of an all-time quarterback, and now that he finally had a chance to stick in one place for the Phillies he’s headed to the disabled list.
Wells, who went 0-for-7 with four strikeouts at the plate Saturday and also took the loss as a pitcher when he allowed five runs in an emergency situation, has been shut down with what the Phillies are calling “vision problems.”
Wells has shown the ability to be a solid part-time player in the past, but this season he’s hit .128 in 52 games while spending time in five different organizations, striking out in 31 of 101 plate appearances.
