Randy Wells decides to leave the Chicago Cubs

30-year old righty starter/reliever Randy Wells has elected to become a free agent. His 2012 season ended early due to elbow surgery. Wells pitched in 12 games (4 starts) for the Cubs in 2012 and he was 1-2 with a 5.34 ERA and a 2.06 WHIP. He pitched in 97 games (86 starts) in his five years with the Cubs and he is 28-32 with a 4.09 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. This isn’t much of a loss for the Cubs due to Wells’ elbow.

    wells will go to the Cardinals. He lives in St. Louis and frequents their golf courses.

    He was a dissapointment for the Cubs anyhow.

    Can you say “The ‘Gary Scott’ of pitchers for the Cubs”.

    I don’t think the Cardinals would be a good fit for him, as they don’t have any rotation spots available. I think he would be smart to sign a minor league deal with the Padres, as a lot of pitchers have revived their careers there. That being said, Wells was going to have a hard time making the Cubs anyway as they are rebuilding with youth.
