The Baltimore Orioles announced they’d reinstated John Means from the 10-day injury list. Means is set to start Tuesday’s game in Tampa Bay after being sidelined for more than a month with a shoulder strain.
We have activated LHP John Means from the 10-day Injured List (left shoulder strain) and optioned OF Ryan McKenna to Triple-A Norfolk.
The left-hander has been Baltimore’s best pitcher by far, as evidenced by his 4-2 record with a 2.28 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP. He’s often up against the opposing team’s best pitchers, and the Orioles have struggled at times in the run production department with him on the mound.
However, Baltimore has been on a bit of a run of late with seven wins in its last 10 games, including a three-game winning streak. If their bats can stay hot, Means should have a chance to snap a five-game winless streak.
This will be Means’ seventh appearance against the Rays and sixth start. He’s 3-1 in those outings mark with a 3.71 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 34 innings. That translates into a decent amount of value with the Orioles as a +176 underdog.
