CHICAGO – If Ryan Dempster and Matt Garza are traded soon, it doesn’t look like Randy Wells will be coming up to fill out the starting rotation.

Wells has been placed on the minor league disabled list with a right elbow strain. The right-hander had been pitching at Triple-A Iowa.

“I haven't talked to the doctor directly about it but it's something that's been bothering him and it kind of reached a critical point the other day,” president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said.

Wells was 1-2 with a 5.34 ERA in 12 outings (four starts). At Iowa, he was 3-3 with a 7.89 ERA over nine starts.
