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.
