Mets interested on Wells on a MiLB

Evan Drellich of is reporting that the Mets are interested in Kip Wells.  The 35 y/o right hander made a somewhat successful return to major league baseball last year with the Padres.  After a two year hiatus from the majors, Wells made seven starts with a 2-7 record and a 4.58 ERA / 1.63 WHIP.  Wells is a long way from his 1998 1st round pick or his 32 wins with a 3.88 ERA in three seasons for the Pirates but on a minor league deal he's only depth.

Right-hander Kip Wells wants to pitch again in 2013. A baseball source said the Mets are among three interested teams, logical because of ties the Mets’ braintrust and Wells both have to San Diego. source MLBlogs
