Athletics Designate Casper Wells For Assignment

The Athletics announced that they have designated Casper Wells for assignment.  The move will allow Oakland to reinstate Yoenis Cespedes from the disabled list.

The well-traveled outfielder cost the A's $100K when they picked him up from the Blue Jays but he wound up making just one start for Oakland.  The 28-year-old is capable of playing all three outfield positions and has posted a strong .264/.349/.489 batting line versus left-handed pitching in his career.  Last season with the Mariners, Wells hit .228/.302/.396 in 316 plate appearances.
