  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Converts on first save opportunity

    Wells picked up the save Thursday against the Red Sox. He didn't strike out a batter over a perfect inning.

    Usual closer Yennier Cano worked part of the eighth inning, retiring a pair of batters before Cionel Perez closed out the frame, leaving Wells to take the mound in the ninth. The starter-turned-reliever delivered a perfect inning to secure his first save from 2021. Though Cano should be expected to handle most of the ninth inning work until Felix Bautista (elbow) returns, Wells could earn more high-leverage work if he continues to produce.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Could get late-season call-up

    Manager Brandon Hyde said Thursday that Wells is a potential late-season call-up, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Wells has been working exclusively in relief for Triple-A Norfolk over the last month, and Hyde told reporters that his arsenal is experiencing an overall uptick in that role. The 29-year-old right-hander struggled his way out of the Orioles' major-league rotation in late July, but he could return as a fresh bullpen arm sometime during the final stretch of regular-season games.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Recalled to help bullpen

    Wells was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Wells was the Orioles' best starter in the first half, but he struggled out of the gate in the second half and eventually found himself in the minors. The righty has been pitching in relief with Norfolk and will be used in that role with Baltimore down the stretch.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Back in action at Triple-A

    Wells (arm) made two appearances out of the Triple-A Norfolk bullpen last week, covering 1.2 innings while giving up two runs on one hit and two walks before striking out two.

    Before taking the mound last Tuesday and then again on Friday, Wells hadn't pitched for Norfolk since Aug. 25 while battling arm fatigue. The 29-year-old looks to be healthy again and could rejoin the big club later in September if he strings together a few more quality appearances at Triple-A, but if he returns to Baltimore, he'll likely be deployed as a reliever. Wells owns a 3.80 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over 113.2 innings in the majors this season, but he struggled mightily in his first three outings coming out of the All-Star break before being dropped from the rotation and ultimately sent to the minors.

  • 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 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 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 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: Chased after 2.2 frames

    Wells (7-6) took the loss Saturday, allowing three runs on three hits and three walks over 2.2 innings in an 8-3 loss to the Yankees. He struck out one.

    Wells was pulled after throwing 63 pitches Saturday and failed to make it through the third inning. The outing added to an already concerning trend for Wells, who covered just 6.1 frames in his previous two appearances. Despite the short start, Wells issued three walks, marking his fifth straight outing allowing multiple walks. Though Wells has faced some of baseball's best offenses over his last three starts in the Dodgers, Rays and Yankees, fantasy managers should be cautious with Wells moving forward, especially considering he's projected to face the Blue Jays next time out.

  • 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: Another short outing Sunday

    Wells allowed three runs on one hit and four walks while striking out five over 4.1 innings Sunday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.

    Wells issued a season-high four walks, and it was just the second time this year he's issued more than two walks in a start. He also hit two batters and was unconventionally wild. Despite the control issues, Wells managed to allow just one hit which happened to be a two-run homer by Yandy Diaz in the fifth inning. He's now gone under five innings in consecutive starts but still holds a career-best 3.65 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 110:30 K:BB in 111 innings and projects for a matchup with the Yankees next weekend.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Early exit against LA

    Wells (7-5) took the loss Tuesday, allowing five runs on six hits and two walks over two innings against the Dodgers. He struck out two.

    It was the shortest outing of the year for Wells in his first start out of the All-Star break, as the Dodgers put up a five spot in the second inning. The loss ended an impressive run for Wells, who'd logged quality starts in five of his previous six outings, posting a 2.97 ERA over that span. Overall, the 28-year-old right-hander sports a 3.54 ERA with a 0.98 WHIP and 105:26 K:BB across 18 starts (106.2 innings) this season. Wells is currently lined up for another tough matchup this weekend against the Rays in Tampa Bay.
