Toronto Blue Jays Return Randy Wells to the Chicago Cubs
Rule V draftee Randy Wells was sent back to the Cubs today after clearing waivers.
The Blue Jays had hoped to keep Wells but were unable to work out a deal with the Cubs.

The Cubs must like him.

He got one inning of work for Toronto, so let's take a look.

Randy faced the Red Sox at home, and the roof was closed. It was the 9th inning of a blow-out. The Jays won 10-2. Due up to face Wells were Crisp, Lugo and Pedroia. He had to face David Ortiz after walking Pedroia on four pitches, but got him to ground out.

According to MLB.com, Randy threw 10 fastballs, one slider and one change. I agree, although one fastball, his first pitch, looks a little like a two seamer. I doubt it, it could just be a glitch, besides the fact it was his first Big League appearance.

Here's his spin movement chart, along with MPH for each pitch



Here are plate locations - notice Mr. 89 (the first pitch he threw) was waaaay outside to Coco Crisp (who was hitting lefty against Wells).
