Casper Wells claimed by the Blue Jays
The Seattle Mariners tried to get Casper Wells thru MLB waivers and it didn't pan out. The squabbling and struggling Toronto Blue Jays grabbed him today first reported by Peter Gammons.

Jason Bay of course beat him out during Spring Training for an extra outfield spot on the roster.
Last year in Seattle Wells played in 98 games, made 285 plate appearances. He batted .228 and had an OBP% of .302.
Ryan Divish of the Tacoma News Tribune today is reporting that Left-hander Bobby LaFromboise will be called up today and will likely replace fellow lefty Lucas Luetge in the bullpen. LaFromboise made 27 relief appearances, posting a 5-2 record with 1.59 ERA last year in Tacoma.
This could very well make the Doug Fister trade go down as the worst trade now in the Jack Z era.
What are your thoughts M's fans?
