Blue Jays claim Casper Wells off waivers from Mariners

4 Comments

Designated for assignment by the Mariners last week, outfielder Casper Wells has been claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays.

Seattle chose to keep Jason Bay over Wells, who’s hit .246 with 25 homers and a .752 OPS in 656 plate appearances as a big leaguer. He has very good power and can play all three outfield spots, so Wells can provide some value even if he’s likely stretched as a regular.

Of course, considering how active the Blue Jays are with waivers he might be back on the wire shortly.
