The Chicago Cubs have designated right-hander Randy Wells for assignment, reports Carrie Muskat of MLB.com:

Wells has spent time as a starter and reliever for the Cubs this season.

The 29-year-old made his first two appearances of the season as a starter for the Cubs, allowing six earned runs over his 8 2/3 innings of work. Wells then made his next eight appearances out of Chicago’s bullpen before starting two games for the Cubs on June 20 and 26. Over those two starts the right-hander allowed six earned runs on 11 hits over six 2/3 innings.

Wells has also started six games for the Cubs Triple-A affiliate this season, posting an ERA and WHIP of 7.71 and 1.582 with 6.5 SO/9 and 3.6 BB/9.

Wells had started 23, 32 and 27 games for the Cubs from 2009-11. Over his five seasons with the club he’s maintained an ERA and WHIP of 4.09 and 1.386.
