The Padres have 10 days to make a move with Wells or he'll become a free agent. He struggled in his last four starts, going 0-3 with a 14.33 ERA. Overall, he was 5-8 with a 5.54 ERA this season.
General manager Kevin Towers said on Wednesday that the club gave Wells the option of retiring or being designated for assignment. Neither Towers nor Wells could immediately be reached for comment on Thursday.
Young was scheduled to start against the Cardinals on Thursday night. He'd been out of action because of a strained left oblique muscle. He came into the game leading the majors with a 1.82 ERA and a .184 batting average against.
