Orioles' Tyler Wells: Won't return this season
Wells (shoulder) won't pitch again in 2022, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Wells landed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation Friday, but the move was backdated to Sept. 20. The right-hander would have been eligible to pitch during the Orioles' final regular-season game, but he'll be shut down for the remainder of the year. Mike Baumann will take Wells' place in the starting rotation Saturday against Houston while Spenser Watkins pitches out of the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Lands on injured list
Wells was placed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation Friday, retroactive to Sept. 20.
Wells struggled mightily against the Tigers on Monday, giving up five runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three in three innings to take the loss. His injury may have contributed to his woes, and he'll be sidelined for at least two weeks. While the right-hander will be eligible to return for the final game of the regular season, it's possible that he's held out for the remainder of the season, especially if the Orioles are eliminated from postseason contention in the coming weeks. Spenser Watkins was called up Friday and will likely take Wells' place in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Mauled by Tigers
Wells (7-7) took the loss Monday, coughing up five runs on four hits and three walks over three-plus innings in an 11-0 rout at the hands of the Tigers. He struck out three.
The right-hander wasn't doing too badly until the fourth inning, when Detroit put its first four batters aboard to chase Wells from the game en route to a five-run frame. The 28-year-old has been tagged for eight runs in nine innings over three starts in September, and Wells appears to be fading badly down the stretch in his first season as a full-time starter in the majors....

Orioles' Tyler Wells: Allows two runs over four innings
Wells did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two runs on two hits and no walks over four innings against the Nationals. He struck out four.
Wells worked his pitch count up to 50 after tossing 34 in his first start back from the injured list Sept. 7. Luke Voit and Riley Adams each tagged Wells for solo home runs, but he was otherwise effective as those were the only two batters the 28-year-old allowed to reach base on the evening. He will take a 3.93 ERA into his next start, which will likely come against Detroit next week.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Staying in rotation
Wells is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Nationals in Washington.
Though he covered just two innings in his return from the 60-day injured list Sept. 7 against the Blue Jays, Wells looks like he'll continue to get progressively stretched out in his subsequent turns through the rotation. After his 34-pitch appearance last week, Wells probably can't be expected to toss more than 50-to-60 pitches Wednesday, making him a rather unappealing fantasy option in weekly leagues even in a favorable matchup....

Orioles' Tyler Wells: Allows one run in return
Wells (oblique) allowed a run on two hits and two walks while striking out one over one inning in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
Wells returned from a five-week absence to serve as an opener in Wednesday's contest. The right-hander did alright, throwing 20 of 34 pitches for strikes, including five whiffs. He averaged 93.1 mph on his fastball, down slightly from his season average. Wells should have the opportunity to stretch out over the last month of the season. He owns a 3.91 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 69:25 K:BB through 96.2 innings over 21 starts, though he won't generate much fantasy interest until he can complete five frames again.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Officially activated from IL
The Orioles activated Wells (oblique) from the 15-day injured list ahead of his start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Wells will be making his surprise return to the big club Wednesday, despite having made just one rehab start at High-A Aberdeen following a five-week stay on the IL. When he was healthy earlier in the season, Wells was arguably the Orioles' top starting pitcher, as he turned in a 3.90 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 94.2 innings across his 20 outings. Because he tossed only 31 pitches in his lone rehab start, Wells could be capped at around three or four innings Wednesday, with Dean Kremer potentially piggybacking him out of the bullpen. Wells should gradually get stretched out over his subsequent starts and shouldn't face many workload restrictions by the second half of September.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Starting Wednesday
Wells (oblique) will be reinstated from the 15-day injured list to start Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Dean Kremer was initially listed as the Orioles' probable starter Wednesday, while Wells was expected to require at least one more rehab appearance prior to rejoining the Orioles. However, Wells will ultimately be activated Wednesday, but it's possible that he serves as an opener since he tossed just 31 pitches during his most recent appearance in the minors. It's not yet clear how the team plans to use Kremer, but it's possible that he's available as a primary pitcher Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Needs another rehab outing
Wells (oblique) threw a bullpen session at Camden Yards on Sunday and is expected to make at least one more minor-league rehab appearance before being activated from the 15-day injured list, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Wells returned to Baltimore after he made a rehab start at High-A Aberdeen on Friday, when he struck out three over 2.1 innings while allowing one run on one hit and no walks. The right-hander checked out fine physically following the 31-pitch outing, but he'll still need at least one more tune-up outing before being activated. Kubatko notes that Wells is likely to rejoin the Orioles as a multi-inning reliever, given that Baltimore's current five starters are performing well in addition to the fact that a bullpen role would require a shorter buildup program for the 28-year-old. Wells is used to working out of the bullpen, having made all 44 of his appearances with Baltimore in 2021 as a reliever.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Rehab assignment on tap
Wells (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Aberdeen on Friday, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Wells threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and will face hitters in a rehab appearance to close out the week. The Orioles haven't yet decided whether the right-hander will return as a starter or reliever, but he's closing in on his return from the IL regardless of what role he'll ultimately fills once activated....

Orioles' Tyler Wells: Completes 30-pitch 'pen session
Wells (oblique) completed a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and is expected to throw a simulated game or pitch in a rehab game at High-A Aberdeen as soon as this weekend, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
The side session followed a simulated game a few days earlier, when Wells faced hitters for the first time since landing on the 15-day injured list July 28 with a Grade 1 left oblique strain. Manager Brandon Hyde said Tuesday that a decision on whether Wells will return from the IL as a reliever or starter hasn't been made, but at the moment, Baltimore doesn't have as pressing of a need for him in the rotation as anticipated when he was first shut down with the oblique strain. Heading into Tuesday's game against the Guardians, the Orioles have received five consecutive quality starts.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Sim game on tap
Wells (oblique) is scheduled to throw a simulated game Sunday or Monday, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.
Wells returned to mound work last week with a couple bullpen sessions, and he's now poised to face live batters. It remains to be seen whether the 28-year-old returns as a starter or a reliever, but he's closing in on a rehab assignment regardless.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Throws another bullpen
Wells (oblique) threw a bullpen session Thursday, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Wells resumed mound work with a bullpen session Tuesday, and he felt good following Thursday's throwing session. He's scheduled to throw live batting practice soon and is expected to have a better timetable for his return afterward. The Orioles aren't yet sure whether the right-hander will return as a starter or reliever.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Gets back on mound
Wells (oblique) completed a bullpen session Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Wells relayed afterward that he felt good while stepping on the mound for the first time since being placed on the 15-day injured list July 28 with a Grade 1 left oblique strain. He'll still need to complete a few more side sessions and throw a live batting practice session or two before heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment, but the Orioles remain optimistic he'll return in 2022. Wells will presumably prepare to rejoin Baltimore in a starting role, but any setback or slowdown in his rehab program at this stage of the season might force him to come back as a reliever....

Orioles' Tyler Wells: Playing catch Saturday
Wells (oblique) played catch on the field ahead of Saturday's game against the Rays, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Wells has been unavailable since the end of July due to a Grade 1 oblique strain, but he's been cleared to throw off flat ground. It seems likely that he'll spend more than the minimum of 15 days on the injured list, and it's not yet clear when he'll be in the mix to return to game action.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Managing Grade 1 oblique strain
Wells has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 oblique strain, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.
While manager Brandon Hyde downplayed the severity of Wells' injury, the Orioles' skipper said that the right-hander will need some time to recover. Wells landed on the injured list Thursday, but it seems likely that he'll spend more than the minimum of 15 days on the IL. A better timetable for his return should come into focus once he's cleared to begin a throwing program.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Tyler Wells: Heads to IL
The Orioles placed Wells on the 15-day injured list Thursday with left side discomfort, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
Wells' move to the IL comes after he exited his start in Wednesday's loss to the Rays and ensures he'll miss at least a couple turns through the rotation. Baltimore recalled a reliever (Beau Sulser) to replace Wells on the 26-man active roster, but the team will likely turn to the rehabbing Kyle Bradish (shoulder) to take over Wells' spot in the rotation....
