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."
