Oakland A’s Acquire OF Casper Wells From Toronto Blue Jays


The Oakland A’s have acquired outfielder Casper Wells from the Toronto Blue Jays for cash considerations, the team announced.

Wells will take the spot of injured infielder Scott Sizemore, who was placed on the 60-day disabled list.

Wells hit .228 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI in 93 games with the Mariners last season. He was drafted by the Tigers in 2005 and spent 2010 and half of 2011 with Detroit.

The Mariners designated him for assignment before this season. He was picked up by the Blue Jays, but never played for them.

Wells has the ability to play all three outfield positions and should add to the depth that is already on Oakland’s roster.
