Cubs sign Casper Wells to minor league deal, release Dave Sappelt

The Cubs have signed a handful of minor league free agents to contracts including RHP Paolo Espino, Carlos Pimentel, Chris Valaika, Jeudy Valdez, and Casper Wells according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America. Wells, 29 is the most notable of the group having amassed 758 plate appearances in his big league career. Wells had his best year in 2012 when he hit .228/.302/.396 with 10 homers for the Seattle Mariners.

In a corresponding move the Cubs have released 26-year old outfielder Dave Sappelt. He was acquired in the trade for Travis Wood but never seemed to show his potential and struggled in Chicago.
