  • Orioles' John Means: Starts throwing again

    Means (elbow) announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he has begun a throwing program.

    Means played light catch Monday, marking the first noteworthy step forward in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in late April. The southpaw isn't far along enough in the rehab process for the Orioles to pinpoint a precise timeline for his return for pitching in games, but he'll most likely open the 2023 campaign on the 60-day injured list, which would sideline him for at least the first two months of the season.

  • Orioles' John Means: Avoids arbitration

    Means (elbow) signed a two-year, $5.925 million deal with the Orioles on Saturday, avoiding arbitration for the next two seasons, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Means won't be pitching for the Orioles any time soon, as he underwent Tommy John surgery in late April, a procedure which will cost him all of this season and a fair portion of next year as well. The two-year agreement signed Saturday allows him to keep his focus on his rehab throughout this season and the following offseason.

  • Orioles' John Means: Undergoes successful surgery

    Means (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    Means will be forced to miss the remainder of 2022 following his procedure, but general manager Mike Elias is confident that the southpaw will be available for a "good portion of the 2023 season," Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports. The Orioles haven't yet established their rotation for this weekend with several starters hurt.

  • Orioles' John Means: Will undergo Tommy John surgery

    Means announced Saturday via his personal Twitter account that he will undergo Tommy John surgery.

    Means revealed that he underwent multiple MRIs on his injured left arm, and it was ultimately decided that he would go under the knife. A timeline for Means' return could be revealed post-procedure, but his 2022 campaign will come to an early end, and his recovery will likely extend into next season.

  • Orioles' John Means: Moves to 60-day IL

    Means (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Means landed on the 10-day IL on Friday with a sprained left elbow, and he'll now be sidelined for at least two months after shifting to the 60-day IL. The 28-year-old remains without an official recovery timeline, as manager Brandon Hyde said Saturday that the lefty is "not going to be on a mound for a while."

  • Orioles' John Means: No timetable to return

    Manager Brandon Hyde said Saturday that Means (elbow) is "not going to be on a mound for a while," Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

    Means landed on the 10-day IL with a left elbow strain Friday and is undergoing further tests. While the results of his examination aren't yet known, Hyde said the southpaw will get a second opinion once the first round of tests are complete. The Orioles' skipper also said that he doesn't know whether Means' injury will be a season-long issue, so it appears as though the 28-year-old is in line for a lengthy absence.

  • Orioles' John Means: Out with elbow strain

    Means was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left elbow strain, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    The 28-year-old departed Wednesday's start against the Brewers after only 51 pitches due to forearm tightness, and the injury has now been clarified as an elbow strain following an MRI. The severity of the strain remains unclear, but it's safe to assume Means will spend more than the 10-day minimum on the shelf. It's a big blow to the Orioles' starting rotation, which was already short on established options.

  • Orioles' John Means: Will undergo MRI

    Mean is scheduled to undergo an MRI after leaving Wednesday's start against Milwaukee with left forearm tightness, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

    The left-hander apparently isn't overly concerned about the injury and hopes to throw again shortly after the MRI. Means didn't factor in the decision Wednesday after giving up two runs on two hits with two strikeouts and one walk across four innings, and his availability for his next turn through the rotation will remain in question at least until the Orioles update his status.

  • Orioles' John Means: Leaves after 51 pitches

    Means was removed from Tuesday's game against the Brewers after four innings for undisclosed reasons, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Means was at only 51 pitches and had retired seven straight batters since allowing a two-out, RBI single during the second inning, so his exit clearly isn't performance-related. The 28-year-old left in line for the loss and allowed two runs on two hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Means' status should be updated by the team sometime during or after Wednesday's contest.

  • Orioles' John Means: Dealing with forearm tightness

    Means was removed from Tuesday's start versus the Brewers with left forearm tightness, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Means made an abrupt exit after four innings during Tuesday's start, and his initial diagnosis is a worrying one. He left in line for the loss after giving up two runs on two hits with two strikeouts and one walk. The specifics and severity of the injury remain unclear, but forearm tightness is often a precursor to more serious issues. Means should be considered day-to-day until more information is available, leaving his availability for the next turn through the rotation up in the air.

  • Orioles' John Means: Strikes out five in no-decision

    Means allowed one run on six hits and a walk over four innings in Friday's loss to the Rays. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

    Means worked two scoreless frames to begin the game before loading the bases in the third inning. He managed to escape after yielding just one run on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Lowe. The 28-year-old southpaw posted a 3.62 ERA across 146.2 innings last season and will spend another year as Baltimore's ace. Means is lined up to face the Brewers at home next week.
