2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Wells is a young left-handers from Newcastle in Australia. He grew up playing cricket until age 14. However, when he and his twin brother, Alexander (recently signed with the Orioles), started playing baseball, they really enjoyed it. When Wells was 15, he was throwing in the upper 80s, but that’s when Howie Norsetter first saw him. Signed in 2014, he was raw, but had some natural pitching tendencies. He had a good delivery with good arm action. He is athletic and really has a passion for the game. Now 6-0 and 185 pounds, he has added velocity and was sitting in the low-90s in the GCL in 2015. He has a curveball, but he feels that his changeup is his best pitch right now. He has played for Australia in several international competitions including the 18U World Cup in Japan following the GCL season.
