Where in the world is Casper Wells? It appears it’s now Oakland after the Athletics grabbed Wells from Toronto after he was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays.

The weird part is he was just claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays twelve days ago from Seattle and designated for assignment on April 15th, without even playing for Toronto.
The good news for Wells, he’s racking up frequent flier miles as it’s 5,215 miles from Safeco Field to the Rogers Centre to o.Co Coliseum. Plus, his Twitter handle @UpstateBaller makes sense again, playing in upstate California. Now, he can focus on .189 batting average so far this season.
