Lake Elsinore, CA – The California League has announced that former Storm All-Star right-hander and current Mobile BayBear, Jared Wells has been honored as the California League’s Pitcher of the Year.

Jared Wells is only the second Storm hurler ever to capture the award (Matt Beaumont in 1995) in franchise history.

At the time of his promotion to Double-A Mobile, Wells led the California League with a 3.44 ERA while posting an outstanding 11-3 record. In 19 starts for Lake Elsinore, Wells struck out 80 while walking only 26 batters in over 120 innings of work.

The 23-year-old was selected in the 31st round of the 2002 First-Year Player Draft by the San Diego Padres out of San Jacinto Junior College in Houston.
