Wells to start rehab on Tuesday

Randy Wells will begin his rehab on Tuesday. I was thinking it would be five days later, but the Cubs could use some rotation help as it is.

CHICAGO — Cubs pitcher Randy Wells threw two innings in an extended spring training game on Thursday in Mesa, Ariz., and the next step will be a Minor League rehab start for Class A Peoria, next Tuesday.

His next scheduled start would be the 22nd. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t move up to AAA for that one and then return on or around the 27th.
