Former MLB SP Randy Wells, who retired in April 2013, is looking to make a comeback after his right elbow responded positively to throwing sessions this winter. He recently threw for an Arizona Diamondbacks scout and hopes to prove that he is healthy enough to warrant a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training camp.

Texas Rangers SP Randy Wells gave up one run in five innings Thursday, March 14, while giving up three hits and walking four and striking out four. "From the get go, I felt good," Wells said. "I was able to make a pitch when I needed to and it was nice to get out there, stretch it out and go five innings." The outing was likely good enough to keep him in the competition with SPs Robbie Ross and Justin Grimm for the last rotation spot. P Nick Tepesch remains a dark horse candidate.

Texas Rangers SP Randy Wells is still in the discussion with RP Robbie Ross for the team's No. 5 starting spot, and Wells easily has the most experience of the candidates. Wells has allowed only one earned run despite allowing nine baserunners in four innings in his first two spring starts. "The last time out he didn't have his changeup, and that is his weapon," manager Ron Washington said. "If he has that, he should get through his four innings with no problem."
