Manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Means' MRI revealed no structural damage to his strained left shoulder, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. The southpaw will be shut down for a week to 10 days before being re-evaluated. After Means was placed on the IL with the shoulder strain earlier Sunday, the Orioles weren't willing to speculate on a timeline for his return until the results of the MRI were revealed. With Means' tests revealing nothing overly concerning, it looks like he'll avoid an extended absence. A firmer target date for Means' return should come into focus once he's cleared to begin a throwing program, but a late-June return to the rotation would appear to be realistic if he can avoid any setbacks during the build-up process.
Means has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a left shoulder strain. Means exited his Saturday start against Cleveland with shoulder fatigue and has been diagnosed with a shoulder strain. Per Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com, the Orioles are still awaiting the results of an MRI that Means underwent Sunday, so there's still the possibility that there is more to the injury. Zac Lowther was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding roster move.
Means will undergo an MRI on his left shoulder Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Means exited his start Saturday against Cleveland in the first inning due to shoulder fatigue. He's reportedly not particularly concerned about the issue, as he's dealt with similar issues in the past which turned out to be relatively minor. Whether or not that optimism is warranted should become clear following the MRI.
Means was pulled from Saturday's game with left shoulder fatigue, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. This explains why Means was getting knocked around by Cleveland's lackluster offense in the first inning. It's unclear how many starts, if any, the lefty will miss. He dealt with left shoulder fatigue at the start of last season and only missed one outing.
Means (undisclosed) was removed from Saturday's game against Cleveland after facing five batters, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. Adam Plutko took over on the mound after Means walked off with the trainer. The lefty ace allowed three hits, two of which were solo homers, and recorded just two outs on 29 pitches. It's unclear what exactly Means is dealing with, but that information should come out after the game.
