  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Orioles transferred Wells (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday.

    The move frees up a 40-man roster spot for Nick Maton, who had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday. Wells is out for the season after undergoing an internal brace procedure on his right elbow this week.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Undergoes internal brace procedure

    Wells (elbow) underwent a UCL revision and internal brace augmentation surgery Monday, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Wells avoided the second Tommy John surgery of his career, after he previously had the procedure in May 2019. However, while the internal brace procedure typically entails a shorter recovery timeline than Tommy John surgery, Wells will still miss the remainder of the 2024 campaign, and likely a few months of the 2025 season.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Requires UCL surgery

    Orioles GM Mike Elias announced Friday that Wells will undergo surgery to repair his right elbow's UCL and will miss the remainder of the season, Jake Rill of reports.

    Wells had begun playing catch while on the road to recovery for his elbow, but his discomfort continued, which will now lead to a season-ending surgery. Elias also stated that it's unknown whether Wells will be getting Tommy John surgery, though more information should be disclosed once the reliever goes in for the procedure.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: To resume throwing

    Manager Brandon Hyde said Thursday that Wells (elbow) plans to resume throwing this week in Sarasota, Matt Weyrich of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    It will be the first time Wells has played catch since May 1, as he's been shut down the past few weeks after undergoing additional testing. The right-hander still has to go through a full throwing program and isn't likely to be back with the Orioles in the near future.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Plays catch Wednesday

    Manager Brandon Hyde said Wells (elbow) played catch Wednesday and will be sent in for additional testing, Jake Rill of reports.

    Hyde didn't specify whether Wells' upcoming tests were part of a pre-planned arrangement, or if the tests were ordered up because he didn't respond as well to playing catch as expected. Either way, Wells' status will be worth tracking in the days to come as he builds his way back up from right elbow inflammation. Wells is eligible to return from the 15-day injured list Friday, but his return shouldn't be viewed as imminent, considering that he hasn't resumed throwing off a mound since being deactivated.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Hoping for abbreviated absence

    Wells is without a timeline to resume throwing after being placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with right elbow inflammation, but manager Brandon Hyde said Saturday that he's optimistic the right-hander will avoid an extended absence, reports.

    Hyde suggested that Wells' placement on the IL was for precautionary reasons after the 29-year-old experienced discomfort in his elbow following his most recent outing April 12. Given that he hasn't been diagnosed with anything more than inflammation, Wells should be in store for a brief shutdown before he starts throwing again, but since he has yet to do so just under a week after being placed on the IL, he's still likely to miss more than the minimum 15 days. Wells is one of three Orioles starters on the IL at the moment, but he appears to be the furthest away from being activated since John Means (forearm) and Kyle Bradish (elbow) are already in the midst of rehab assignments.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Placed on 15-day IL

    The Orioles placed Wells on the 15-day injured list with right elbow inflammation.

    The assignment to the 15-day injured list is retroactive to April 13. Wells allowed four runs on six hits and a walk over four innings with three strikeouts in his last outing Friday. It was his second loss of the season as he fell to 0-2. The 29-year-old was supposed to start Wednesday, so the Orioles will have to make another move or fill in the spot with someone on the roster.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Falls to Brewers

    Wells (0-2) took the loss Friday against Milwaukie, allowing four runs on six hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out three.

    After a clean first inning, Wells allowed three runs on three extra-base hits in the second inning en route to an eventual 11-1 Baltimore loss. It's been a shaky start to the year for the 29-year-old right-hander -- his ERA is up to 5.87 with a 1.37 WHIP and 13:10 K:BB through his first 15.1 innings. Wells is currently in line to face the Twins at home in his next outing.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Allows nine baserunners Saturday

    Wells allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Saturday.

    Joey Bart launched a two-run homer off Wells on his first swing as a Pirate. That would account for most of the damage, but Wells dealt with heavy traffic throughout, allowing nearly twice as many baserunners as he did in his season debut March 31 against the Angels. Wells induced just 10 swings and misses on 87 pitches Saturday and may not possess a particularly high fantasy ceiling, but he's locked into the rotation for one of the best teams in the American League. The right-hander lines up for a home start against the Brewers next weekend.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Punches out seven in loss

    Wells (0-1) took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits and no walks over six innings against the Angels. He struck out seven.

    Wells had a shaky start Sunday after allowing a two-run homer to Taylor Ward in the first inning and yielding two more runs (one unearned) in the second. However, the Orioles pitcher was able to settle in and finished his outing with four straight scoreless innings and earned a quality start. Wells looks to be a dependable starter after producing a 3.64 ERA over 118.2 innings in 2023 and leaving spring training this year with a 1.26 ERA over 14.1 innings. His next start is scheduled to be against the Pirates on the road.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Confirmed for rotation

    Wells will be the Orioles' No. 3 starter to open 2024, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Wells likely has a bit more job security than Cole Irvin while John Means (elbow) and Kyle Bradish (elbow) work their way back to full health. Wells pitched to a 1.69 ERA over 10.2 innings across three spring starts. He's not guaranteed to stay in the rotation all year given his success in the bullpen in previous seasons, however.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Sharp in second spring start

    Wells allowed one run on two hits and a walk with one strikeout over four innings versus the Rays on Tuesday.

    Wells gave up a solo home run to Randy Arozarena, but he was otherwise in control for his second spring start. Wells is doing his part to earn a spot in the rotation to start the season, as the Orioles will be missing John Means (elbow) and Kyle Bradish (elbow). After starting 2023 as a starter and pitching well, Wells faded in July and dealt with arm fatigue after getting optioned to the minors. The right-hander may not be a starter for all of 2024 either, but if he can carry over his strong spring into the regular season, he could make some tough decisions pop up for manager Brandon Hyde.
