The Miami Marlins may be the team to change that. In need of a power-hitting right-handed bat, the Marlins are considering Wells for a bench role writes Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. The opening in the position was created when the Fish traded Justin Ruggiano to the Chicago Cubs for Brian Bogusevic, a left-handed hitter. With Bogusevic slated to be the team’s fourth outfielder, that would strictly relegate the 35-year-old Wells to a pinch-hitter role.
Last season, in his first and only year with the Yankees, Wells played in 130 games, and hit .233/.282/.349 while playing both corner outfield spots.
