A’s Trade OF Casper Wells to White Sox for Cash


The Oakland A’s traded outfielder Casper Wells to the Chicago White Sox for cash after just one game, the team announced.

Wells was acquired from the Blue Jays last week, but was designated for assignment shortly thereafter to make room for Dan Straily.

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.
