Player Outlook
Tyler Wells was dynamite in the first half for the Orioles in 2023, putting up a 3.18 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 103:24 K:BB over 104.2 frames. He then fell apart in a hurry after the All-Star break, getting knocked around in three straight starts which led to a demotion to the minors. Wells got moved to the bullpen at Triple-A Norfolk and eventually found his way back to Baltimore, where he made eight scoreless appearances between the regular season and playoffs. The plan is for Wells to return to the rotation in 2024, with the hope that he can rediscover his 2023 first-half form. Wells is an extreme flyball pitcher with home run issues, and his expected stats say he overachieved some last season. He's always been a WHIP standout, though, and his home run problems are muted somewhat by the new left field dimensions at Camden Yards.

  • 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 MASNSports.com 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 MLB.com 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 MLB.com 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: 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 MASNSports.com 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: Could slide into rotation

    Wells could open the season in the Orioles' rotation following injuries to Kyle Bradish (elbow) and John Means (elbow), Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. The tall right-hander was seemingly squeezed out of the rotation following the team's trade for Corbin Burnes, but he's now firmly back in the mix with Bradish pegged for the injured list and Means likely to join him. Wells finished with a 3.64 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 117:34 K:BB over 118.2 innings in 2023 but had a 7.07 ERA in just 14 frames after the All-Star break.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Arm fatigue at Triple-A

    Wells hasn't pitched at Triple-A Norfolk since Aug. 25 due to right arm fatigue, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports. It now seems in retrospect that the fatigue contributed to Wells' midseason struggles and subsequent demotion. He was recently moved to the bullpen at Norfolk and has had trouble bouncing back after outings. The Orioles are hoping he'll be able to pitch again soon, but realistically, they can't be counting on him to contribute down the stretch.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Joining Triple-A bullpen

    Wells was promoted Tuesday from Double-A Bowie to Triple-A Norfolk, where he will pitch out of the bullpen, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. It's been an interesting season for Wells, who went five-plus innings in 18 straight starts for the big club from April 3 through July 8. From there, his productivity fell off over three more MLB appearances before he was optioned to Double-A on July 30. This latest transaction suggests Baltimore is giving Wells a chance to be a part of the big-league bullpen down the stretch, so those who have been stashing him in hopes he rejoins the Orioles' rotation may need to look elsewhere.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Taking ball at Double-A on Saturday

    Wells will start for Double-A Bowie on Saturday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. Wells was optioned to Bowie in late July as a bit of a reset after getting roughed up in his first three second-half outings. He allowed one run over 3.1 innings in his first start for Bowie this past Saturday and will take the ball for that team again on six days' rest. Cole Irvin is likely starting for the Orioles on Saturday as part of a six-man rotation and it's not a coincidence that he's on the same schedule as Wells, as the hope is the righty will eventually slide back into the big-league rotation. When that could happen, however, remains up in the air.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Starting Saturday at Double-A

    Wells, who is slated to start for Double-A Bowie on Saturday, will be given a little more rest between his next outings, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports. It sounds like Wells will go only three innings Saturday as the organization hits the reset button. Rest will be a big part of this reset process, as manager Brandon Hyde said Wells likely won't take the ball again in the minors until next weekend. One of the biggest surprises of the first half, Wells allowed 11 runs in nine innings across his first three starts out of the All-Star break. He still has a 3.80 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 111:33 K:BB over 113.2 innings in the majors this season.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Sent to Double-A

    The Orioles optioned Wells to Double-A Bowie on Sunday. Wells surrendered three runs over 2.2 frames Saturday against the Yankees and has an 11.00 ERA and 8:9 K:BB in three starts since the All-Star break, leading Baltimore to send him to the minors to straighten things out. The right-hander had a 3.18 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 103:24 K:BB across 104.2 innings during the first half of the season, and the Orioles are likely hoping he can quickly regain that form in the minors and rejoin the big-league rotation.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Earns seventh win

    Wells (7-4) earned the win Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over six innings against the Twins. He struck out four. Wells held the Twins to one run over the first five innings, which came across following a wild pitch from the right-hander. He would later allow a second run on a Donovan Solano double in the sixth before striking out the next two batters to end the inning and eventually earned his seventh win of the season. Wells has now allowed exactly two earned runs in seven consecutive starts and has gone six innings in three straight.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Settles for no-decision Monday

    Wells allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four batters over six innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Monday. Wells kept the Yankees off the scoreboard for four frames before Anthony Volpe and Kyle Higashioka tagged him for back-to-back solo shots in the fifth. Wells finished off that inning and completed one more to pick up his second straight quality start, but the Yankees rallied late to take the win and hand the right-hander a no-decision. Though Wells has given up at least one long ball in five of his past seven starts, he's been reliable and effective overall during that stretch, going at least five innings in each of those appearances and compiling a 2.81 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 45:10 K:BB over 41.2 frames.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Delivers quality start in loss

    Wells (6-4) took the loss Tuesday, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings against the Reds. He struck out seven. Wells was solid again Tuesday, but the Orioles mustered just one run of support against Andrew Abbott in the loss. The 28-year-old Wells hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in any of his last six starts (35.2 innings), pitching to a 2.81 ERA in that span. His ERA is down to 3.21 with a league-leading 0.88 WHIP and 95:20 K:BB across 15 starts (92.2 innings) this season. Wells is currently lined up for a road matchup with the Yankees in his next outing.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Fans eight in win

    Wells (6-2) earned the win Thursday, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk over 6.2 innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out eight. Wells was able to keep a dangerous Blue Jays lineup at bay for most of the afternoon, with the exception of Danny Jansen, who took the right-hander deep in the third and fifth innings to provide Toronto with their only runs in the contest. The right-hander has now won each of his last three starts for Baltimore and has struck out at least seven batters in six of his last seven. Wells has also held opponents to two earned runs or fewer in four straight, lowering his ERA to a strong 3.20 on the season.
