White Sox Acquire Casper Wells

CasperWellsAfter being designated for assignment with his third organization this year. Casper Wells, yet again, finds himself on the move, this time to our own Chicago White Sox. Wells was designated for assignment by the Oakland A’s after slugging Cuban outfielder, Yoenis Cespedes, was activated from the disabled list. Considering the A’s had their slugger back, they no longer had use for Wells and dealt him to the South Siders for cash considerations. I’m not sure why no one wants this guy, but considering the White Sox have been struggling this year, any spark to the lineup could help them get back into it. In his largest sample size of 285 at-bats, which was in 2012, Wells hit .228 with a .302 on-base percentage, 10 home runs, and 36 runs batted in. Wells seems like he can be a valuable player if he can latch on and stick somewhere, anywhere, but until then he is going to need to try and stay positive and keep thinking that every stop could be the team he has a career with. Hopefully, Wells will break out in Chicago, considering our own Cuban slugger is now injured, but with the outfield pretty crowded with youngsters like Jordan Danks and Jared Mitchell waiting in the wings, Wells may have a limited time to showcase his skills to impress the White Sox front office.
