With his tendency to give up the long ball I don't think it's a big deal if he is shut down for the remainder of the season. That wouldn't play well in the playoffs.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

On top of that you really don't want a reliever whose weakness is the long ball.

Wells is a nugget. Knew he’d hit a wall. Happy he’s here next year.

Shoulder issue, not believed to be serious.

Same story as last year for Wells. Start strong, finish hurt.

Maybe his future is at the back end of the BP.

Back to back scoreless outings with 0 hits, 0 walks, and 1 K in each at Norfolk.

3 hits, 3 runs and a walk in his most recent outing from the 15th.   His tank seems to be on E and I'm starting to think we won't see him again in Baltimore this year.

What a fall from grace for this guy. Pitched again last night after 4 days off. As a RP now.

0.2, 2h, 1ER.


Guy is not gonna make it back up from AAA after being sent there in late July. This after being arguably our best SP in the first half. He just slams into walls at some point every season

iIt is a shame Wells wore down.  He is really needed, but at this point, maybe they should shut him down.

Think Phelan said he was dealing with a shoulder issue back when he didnt pitch for like 2 weeks. Obviously if it were serious he wouldnt be pitching at all but yeah, just shut him down at this point.

Will probably be competing for a spot in the BP next spring.

He will absolutely be given every opportunity to lock down a rotation spot. He's definitely earned that. Like many young pitchers do when they exceed their normal workload, they tire and wear out. Maybe they can plan a little better on how to best optimize him next year. Maybe starting him as a tandem guy following an opener for a month or something that has him heading into the 2nd half with less innings than this year. Kid's a bulldog and a budding star IMO. He's got it. We shouldn't be sleeping on Tyler Wells just because he isn't here right now. Don't forget the contributions he made this year - at times when Gibson was struggling, when Kremer hadn't gotten it dialed in yet, when Irvin was demoted... Wells was one of those rocks for us. Always keeping us in games. Major contributor to 2023.

Assuming all are healthy - Bradish, Rodriguez, Means, and Kremer should all be near locks. They'll probably look to add a SP either through trade or FA. This is the second year in a row that Wells has hit a wall around 100 IP.

He's much more needed in the BP, especially if Felix is out long term.

I think he could be a SP option and will be stretched out in ST but the ideal role for him if everyone else is healthy and pitching well will be in the pen.

I have almost zero desire to try Wells as a starter again. He's good right up until he's absolutely terrible. But then he doesn't seem to be able to rest up and recover. Once he's done he's done. Bullpen guy for me.

So long as they can rework his arsenal so that it plays in the pen, cuz his career 1.6 hr/9 rates out as 148th out of 161 qualified relievers in MLB this year.
