3:35 PM MRI showed no structural damage, Hyde said (via Roh Kubatko of MASNsports.com). It will be closed for seven to ten days and then re-evaluated to set a more definite timetable for its return.
11:15 a.m .: The Wolves have placed a leftist John means in the list of injured due to tension in his throwing shoulder, according to a team announcement. Zack Lowter was downloaded from Triple-A Norfolk to replace it in the active list.
The funds left his start last night in the first inning, as the team determined his problematic shoulder fatigue at that time. He has since undergone an MRI, manager Brandon Hyde told reporters (including Nathan Ruiz of the Baltimore Sun), although the team has not yet received the results. At the moment, it seems that putting Means on IL is more cautious than anything.
There are few reasons for O to risk more serious injuries to their core staff until they specifically diagnose the problem. Mines is in the middle of the breakthrough season after starting a 2.28 ERA (71
Even if he does not continue to keep running overboard at exactly this level, there is reason to believe that he has taken legal steps forward. The South Paw has always been a quality kicker and its 4.9% walking speed remains stellar. The funds also lacked bats in a strong 14% clip, the best career, thanks in large part to one of the best changes in the sport.
As Steve Adams of MLBTR researches this week, this makes him one of the most interesting commercial candidates in the league. The Orioles are certainly not competing this season and it is difficult to see a way to the playoffs next year. It must be the case that the O’s will move funds this summer. If his current problem turns out to be minor, it is sure to attract a lot of interest from competing clubs, and today’s placement of IL serves as a reminder of the potential risk of injury associated with building around each pitcher. On the other hand, Means is controllable until 2024 and the orioles certainly hope to compete before that point. If he returns in a relatively short period of time, Means will be among the most interesting players to follow in the coming weeks.
