Diamondbacks Sign Kip Wells

The Diamondbacks have signed Kip Wells to a minor league contract according to Baseball America's Matt Eddy. Wells had been with the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League.

The soon-to-be 34-year-old last appeared in the bigs leagues with the Reds in 2009. Cincinnati re-signed him last February, but ended up releasing him before the season started. Wells then hooked on with the Ducks, and posted a 4.00 ERA with 23 strikeouts and 15 walks in 27 innings (five starts) with them. He owns a 4.71 ERA during a Major League career that has spanned parts of 11 seasons.

I’m predicting they would get similar results out of Kip James or Kip Winger.

First, WHY?? Second, a 4 ERA with the Ducks makes him worthy of even a minor league contract with a MLB team?? Third, I’d rather they dig out Jim Morris and try him out…I mean, he has accomplished more than Wells has. A movie was made about his life, Dennis Quaid played him. What has Kippy done besides getting overpaid to have a less than mediocre career?!?!

Maybe they can trade him for Ryan Howard with the Phillies paying his contract
