Dodgers Sign Wells

Thursday, August 23, 2007

The Dodgers have signed free agent pitcher David Wells and plan on having him start at Shea Stadium versus the Mets Sunday. Wells, who is 5-8 with a 5.54 ERA and 63 K, will get paid by the Dodgers a pro-rated portion of the minimum salary, while the rest of his will be picked up by the Padres. "This is the right situation, a team on the West Coast that's a playoff contender. He's looking forward to it," Clifton said. "David always likes to be a member of a veteran team that has a chance to make the playoffs."
