The Texas Rangers placed Wells on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday after the right-hander sprained his foot on Friday.
Wells suffered a twisted left foot and left the Rangers' 14-7 win over the Seattle Mariners on Friday in the fourth inning. The right-hander got injured on an awkward follow-through on a pitch to Ichiro Suzuki with no outs in the fourth. He is listed as day-to-day and will be re-evaluated on Saturday.
Wells, scratched Monday because of his sore shoulder, says he's ready for his start Friday night, which will be his home debut for the Rangers in his native state. Texas acquired Wells in a July 31 trade with Pittsburgh. Two MRI exams this week revealed no structural damage.
Wells, scheduled to start Monday night at Oakland, was sent back to Texas to see team physician Keith Meister about the soreness in his pitching shoulder that forced him out of his previous start.
Wells was roughed up in his first start of the season on Tuesday, giving up six runs, five hits and five walks in 3 2-3 innings of a 10-6 loss to Kansas City on Tuesday night. Pittsburgh jumped out to a 4-0 lead, but the right-hander _ who led baseball with 18 losses last season _ was unable to hold it.
Wells was activated from the disabled list by the Pirates on Sunday after suffering from a blood clot and not appearing in a game this season. The right-hander is expected to make his season debut against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday. Victor Santos was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a rotator cuff injury to make room for Wells on the roster.
Wells will make three rehabillitation starts with Double-A Lynchburg and Triple-A Indianapolis as he tries to come back from a blood clot that has prevented him from playing for the Pirates this season. The team is targeting June 25 as his return to the rotation as he has been on the 60-day disabled list since April 1.
Wells had successful surgery Monday to correct a blocked artery in his right arm. The Pirates' right-hander will begin rehabilitation to build up arm strength in four to six weeks, and he could return to Pittsburgh's rotation by the All-Star break.
Wells said Wednesday that he will have surgery next week to replace a vein in his right arm. A vein will be taken from his leg and placed in his throwing arm, in order to remove a blood clot and surrounding tissue. It will be easier to determine how long the Pirates' right-hander will be out after Monday's procedure.
The Pittsburgh Pirates announced Sunday that Wells was found to have total blockage of the axillary artery in his pitching arm. The right-hander, who was examined in St. Louis on Saturday, may need surgery to clear the blockage in the main artery located under the clavicle, which supplies blood to the upper extremities. A timetable for Wells' return is unknown until it's determined whether surgery is required. The blockage could end his 2006 season before it begins.
Wells and the Pirates agreed to a $4.15 million, one-year contract on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration. Wells went 8-18 with a 5.09 ERA last season. The 18 losses led the major leagues and he was the only NL pitcher to lose more than 16 games.
Wells didn't make his scheduled start against the Dodgers Sunday because of a cracked finger nail on his pitching hand. The Pirates' righthander, who is 6-12 with a 4.86 ERA in 23 starts, was replaced by rookie Ian Snell on Sunday.
After lasting just two innings in his last start, Wells bounced back to post one of the best outings of his major league career in Tuesday's 3-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. The Pirates' righthander, who notched his third career complete game and second shutout, scattered just four runs over nine innings, striking out 12 and walking three.
