Kip Wells Starting For Padres Tuesday

Kip Wells, who pitched for eight major league teams (the Cardinals, White Sox, Pirates, Royals, Rockies, Rangers, Reds and Nationals, not necessarily in that order), will add a ninth team to that resume Tuesday — three years after he last threw a major-league pitch:

Wells signed with the White Sox after throwing for their coaching staff while the Chisox were playing a pre-season exhibition game in Houston. But ten days later, they released him.

The Padres signed him on May 8. Truth be told, Wells has not pitched well in the minor leagues: seven starts, a 4.97 ERA and more walks (20) than strikeouts (16). But the Padres are desperate for starting pitchers after a number of injuries. They have already had 12 pitchers start for them this year; Tuesday, Wells will become the 13th.
