PEORIA, Ariz., March 19 (UPI) -- San Diego Padres pitcher David Wells said he expected changes in diet and other habits to help control his recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Monday that Wells, 43, was told he had type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes, about two weeks ago.
Wells told the Union-Tribune his energy level has been low but changes in diet and drinking habits were expected to help.
Wells was 3-5 with a 4.42 earned run average last season in 13 stats with Boston and San Diego. For his 20-year career, the left-handed starter is 230-148 with a 4.07 ERA while pitching for nine teams.
