Wells surrendered 28 earned runs in 24 1/3 innings (10.36 ERA) this season with the Angels’ Triple-A affiliate in Salt Lake, Utah. He last appeared in a major league game in August 2012 with the San Diego Padres.
The former first-round pick out of Baylor University pitched for the White Sox, Pirates, Rangers, Cardinals, Rockies, Royals, Nationals, Reds and Friars over the course of a 12-year big league career. He will finish up with a 69-103 career win-loss record, a 4.71 career ERA, a 1.51 career WHIP and a 6.5 career K/9.
