Casper Wells finds a fitting home


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(4/10/2013) Casper Wells never had much of a chance to settle in as a regular with the Mariners, but he showed some power potential in his 124 games with them. Picked up off waivers by the Blue Jays, Wells gets a chance at a fresh start.

Granted, he will probably have an even harder time cracking the lineup in Toronto, but if Adam Lind continues to struggle or Colby Rasmus falls into an extended funk, the opportunity is there for Wells to get some playing time. His flyball-hitting ways are a great fit for Rogers Centre, and even with semi-regular starts, he could provide enough power to be helpful in deeper Rotisserie leagues.

Wells is currently just a deep AL-only option, but owners should keep an eye on how his role develops, as he could be useful to a much larger share of Fantasy owners if things break right.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Wells hit .228/.302/.396 (99 OPS+) for the Mariners in 2012. He owns a .246/.317/.435 (110 OPS+) line in 656 career plate appearances.


Casper Wells the odd man out in Seattle?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2013) Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said Thursday a decision on whether to keep Casper Wells or Jason Bay on the 25-man roster will go down to Sunday. 

"At this moment in time, we don’t have any information except to say we don’t have to have the roster set until Sunday. So what we’re going to do is let it play itself out," Zduriencik said to MLB.com. "We’ve made a decision on keeping a couple pitchers back here to get some work in and we’ll have Casper Wells stay back as well. Until we really have to make a roster move, we’re not going to make a roster move."

MLB.com suggests Wells is the odd man out and the team is waiting for him to clear waivers or to make a trade. Wells, who is batting .189 (10 for 53) with two homers and 14 RBI in 16 spring games, is out of options.
