The Phillies claimed 28-year-old well-traveled outfielder Casper Wells today. The Phillies will be the fifth club he has been with this season. He is batting .155. Yet, Ruben Amaro still managed to say (or have someone write) these words:
“Casper is someone that we’ve had our eye on since spring training,” Amaro said. “He’s a versatile outfielder who adds depth to our club and can be a power threat off the bench.”
Wells has no home runs in 71 at-bats this season.
