Wells returns to Reds with Minors deal

CINCINNATI -- The Reds have brought back right-handed pitcher Kip Wells, who agreed to terms on a Minor League contract on Thursday with an invite to Spring Training.

In 26 games with the Nationals and Reds last season, Wells was 2-5 with a 5.33 ERA. In his seven starts -- all with Cincinnati -- he was 2-2 with a 4.78 ERA.

Cincinnati picked up the 32-year-old Wells on July 7 after his release from Washington. He was promoted from Triple-A Louisville on July 31.

Wells became a fill-in starter late in the season and was 2-1 with a 3.65 ERA in four September starts.

In his career with the White Sox, Pirates, Rangers, Cardinals, Rockies, Royals, Nationals and Reds, Wells is 67-99 with a 4.71 ERA.
