Phillies' Casper Wells to DL
The Phillies purchased the contract of utility man Pete Orr on Monday from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill Wells' roster spot.
Wells has been part of five organizations this year. The 28-year-old was previously with the Mariners, Blue Jays, Athletics and White Sox. He was 0 for 7 and gave up five runs when he pitched in the 18th inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Overall, he was batting .128 with one RBI in 94 at-bats this season.
To make room on the 40-man roster, Ryan Howard was transferred to the 60-day DL.
