Orioles starters John Means, Tyler Wells out for season

john means

The Baltimore Orioles will be without starters John Means and Tyler Wells for the rest of the season.

Baltimore general manager Mike Elias told reporters Friday that Means and Wells need surgery to repair damage to their ulnar collateral ligaments and will miss the remainder of the 2024 campaign.

Means and Wells each had Tommy John surgery, but it wasn’t clear whether either would need another one, or another form of UCL procedure.

Means, a 31-year-old left-hander, pitched well in limited time this season. He has a 2-0 record and a 2.61 ERA in four starts, striking out 16 in 20 2/3 innings.

Set to become a free agent after this season, Means is 23-26 with a 3.68 ERA over his seven-year big-league career.

Right-hander Wells, 29, went 0-2 in three starts in 2024 and put up a 5.87 ERA. He’s 16-18 with a 4.06 ERA over four seasons in the majors.

The Orioles, 35-19 entering Friday’s games, have a current rotation of Corbin Burnes, Cole Irvin, Grayson Rodriguez, Kyle Bradish and Albert Suarez.

Another rotation piece, Dean Kremer, was placed on the injured list a week ago with a strained triceps.
