Here's what mlbtraderumors had to say about Wells:
"Wells, 28, came the Mariners from Detroit as part of the Doug Fister trade. In 432 plate appearances for the M's, Wells hit .225/.304/.406 with 17 home runs. Wells is capable of playing all three outfield positions and has abused left-handed pitching to the tune of a .264/.349/.489 batting line."
Sounds like some outfield depth in a similar mould as Rajai Davis and possibly the end of the eight man bullpen. A roster move will have to be made for Wells to stay on the Blue Jays, especially when Brett Lawrie comes back. The way I see it, Edgar Gonzalez would be the most likely candidate to be designated for assignment.
Here's how the roster moves will shake down according to Shi Davidi:
UPDATE (by Minor Leaguer)
Barry Davis reported that Casper Wells will join the team in Kansas City tomorrow. Edgar Gonzalez is gonzo.
Casper Wells will not report until the #bluejays hit KC on Friday. Expect Edgar Gonzalez to join the long list of DFA'd players— Barry Davis (@SNBarryDavis) April 10, 2013
