Veteran right-hander Kip Wells retires

Veteran right-hander Kip Wells, a journeyman starter who played for nine different teams in his career, called it quits Sunday after 12 years in the major leagues, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.

Drafted with the sixteenth overall pick in the 1998 amateur draft, Wells posted a 4.71 ERA with a 1.51 WHIP over 1,338.1 career innings, twice leading the league in losses (2005, 2007).  The right-hander last appeared in a big league game in 2012 -- he signed a minor-league deal with the Angels prior to the 2013 campaign, but failed to make it back to the majors.
