Schenectady's Wells sent back to minors by Mariners

Schenectady's Wells sent back to minors by Mariners

The Seattle Mariners sent outfielder and Schenectady High School graduate Casper Wells back to Tripl

The Seattle Mariners sent outfielder and Schenectady High School graduate Casper Wells back to Triple-A Tacoma today after activating catcher Miguel Olivo from the 15-day disabled list.

Olivo missed close to a month with a strained right groin muscle.

There was some speculation that Seattle might consider keeping Wells and releasing benched veteran Chone Figgins, but Figgins remained on the roster.

The 27-year-old Wells has played in 25 games this season for the Mariners, hitting .213 with a home run and six RBI. The home run came in front of his parents on Mother's Day at Yankee Stadium, off left-hander Andy Pettitte.
