Alex Wells: Becomes free agent
Wells elected free agency Thursday, per Triple-A Norfolk's transaction log.
Wells was sidelined by a UCL strain for much of last season, which limited him to a total of 18.2 innings -- 3.2 of which came in Baltimore. He has yet to prove capable of sustained success at the big-league level, so he is likely destined for a minor-league deal.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Activated and outrighted
Wells (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
Wells has missed most of the season due to an elbow sprain he suffered in late April. While he's now healthy, the Orioles didn't think he deserved a 40-man roster spot, but he's passed through waivers unclaimed and will remain part of the organization.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Rehab shifts to Triple-A
Wells (elbow) had his rehab assignment transferred to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Wells' rehab assignment was transferred to Double-A Bowie last week, and he struck out two in 2.2 scoreless innings Sunday. It's not yet clear how many more rehab appearances the southpaw will require, but he seems to be closing in on his return.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Moving rehab to Double-A
Wells (elbow) is shifting his rehab from the FCL to Double-A Bowie on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Wells struck out two in a perfect inning Tuesday with the Orioles' rookie-ball affiliate. That's enough to get him up to Double-A, where he'll likely still need multiple appearances before he might be cleared to rejoin the big-league roster.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Starts up rehab assignment
Wells (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with the Orioles' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Wells has been out since late April with a Grade 1 UCL strain of his left elbow, and he was initially given an 8-to-12 week recovery timeline. He's already past the long end of that estimate, and it's likely he'll need a significant number of appearances during his rehab -- potentially at multiple levels of the minors -- before he could be a factor in the Orioles' bullpen again....

Orioles' Alexander Wells: Shifts to 60-day injured list
Wells (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
Wells has been on the injured list since April 29 due to a Grade 1 UCL strain of his left elbow, and he's expected to miss 8-to-12 weeks. That timetable means that he'll likely be sidelined until after the All-Star break, so his move to the 60-day IL shouldn't impact his outlook.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Beginning rehab program in Florida
Wells (elbow) reported to the Orioles' spring facility in Sarasota, Fla. on Wednesday to begin his rehab program, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
The Orioles placed Wells on the 10-day injured list last weekend with an elbow injury that was later revealed to be a Grade 1 UCL strain, and the expectation is that he'll be sidelined for 8-to-12 weeks. As such, Wells is likely several weeks away from throwing, so he may be limited to conditioning work in the early stages of his stint at extended spring training.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Faces extended absence
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Wells was diagnosed with a Grade 1 UCL strain of his left elbow and will miss 8-to-12 weeks, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The projected timeline means that the southpaw reliever likely won't be ready to return from the 10-day injured list until after the All-Star break. A more definitive target date for Wells' return likely won't come into focus until several weeks down the road, when he'll presumably be ready to start up a throwing program again. The Orioles plan to have Wells conduct his rehab at their spring training facility in Sarasota, Fla.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Out with elbow inflammation
Wells was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with left elbow inflammation, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Wells was promoted from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday and allowed two runs over 1.2 innings that same day against the Yankees, and he'll now make his way to the injured list. It's unclear how long the 25-year-old is expected to be sidelined, but since it's an elbow issue an absence beyond the 10-day minimum wouldn't be a surprise.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Moves up to big leagues
The Orioles recalled Wells from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.
Wells will provide some reinforcement to the Orioles' bullpen after the team needed five relievers to cover eight innings in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Angels when starter Chris Ellis (shoulder) failed to record an out. Ellis was placed on the 10-day injured list to open up a spot for Wells, who could be a candidate to replace the former in the rotation if he isn't needed in relief over the next few days....

Orioles' Alexander Wells: Sent to minors
The Orioles optioned Wells to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Wells' demotion clears a spot on the 28-man active roster for Marcos Diplan, whose contract was selected from Norfolk in a corresponding move. The addition of Diplan gives the Orioles another fresh arm out of the bullpen after Wells was needed to cover two innings out of the bullpen in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Yankees.... See More ...

Orioles' Alexander Wells: Covers two innings
Wells allowed three hits and struck out three in two scoreless innings in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Yankees.
Wells is considered an option to make a spot start in place of John Means (elbow) Monday versus the Athletics. It's unclear if his multi-inning appearance Saturday will change those plans. Wells made one start with Triple-A Norfolk before he was summoned to Baltimore last Monday. He covered four innings with three strikeouts, a walk and a hit. He threw 32 pitches (29 strikes) Saturday, and even if he doesn't start, the southpaw could work in tandem with another pitcher as the Orioles try to patch the holes in their rotation....

Orioles' Alexander Wells: Back with Orioles
The Orioles recalled Wells from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Wells spent a portion of spring training with the Orioles, surrendering three runs on five hits while striking out two over two innings before getting optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on March 28. With DJ Stewart being optioned to Triple-A on Sunday and Dean Kremer (oblique) being placed on the 10-day injured list, the Orioles opted to call up Wells and Spenser Watkins to fill those roster spots. In 42.2 innings of work in the big-leagues last season, the left-hander struggled to a 6.75 ERA and 1.62 WHIP, but he'll look to start off on a new foot in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Optioned to Triple-A
Wells was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Wells debuted last season and threw 42.2 innings at the highest level, but he won't get the chance to break camp in the majors this year. It's hard to say he deserves a spot, as he struggled to a 6.75 ERA while striking out just 13.2 percent of opposing batters last season.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Earns second win
Wells (2-3) allowed one earned run on three hits and two walks while striking out two across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Red Sox.
Wells allowed a lot of contact, but the majority of it found defenders. The lone blemish on his line came from the opening batter of the game, as Enrique Hernandez took him yard. However, Wells settled in from there to turn in the longest outing of his career and his first quality start. Wells will close his campaign with a 6.75 ERA and 26:16 K:BB across 42.2 frames....

Orioles' Alexander Wells: Sent to minors
Wells was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.
Wells wasn't going to pitch again this season after tossing six innings against Boston on Thursday, so he'll be optioned to clear space for Isaac Mattson. He'll end the season with a 6.75 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in eight starts and three relief appearances.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Gives up three runs Friday
Wells allowed three runs on five hits and a walk with one strikeout in five innings Friday, taking a no-decision versus Texas.
The southpaw fared well against most of the Rangers' lineup, although, Nathaniel Lowe homered and singled off him. Wells has been inconsistent across his 10 appearances (seven starts) this year. He's struggled to a 7.61 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 24:14 K:BB in 36.2 innings with nine home runs allowed. The 24-year-old lines up for one more start this year, likely at home versus Boston next week....

Orioles' Alexander Wells: Yields five runs
Wells allowed five runs on six hits and a walk over five innings in Sunday's loss to Boston. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.
The Red Sox jumped on Wells right out of the gate, scoring three runs in the first inning and adding another in the second. He then coughed up a solo homer to J.D. Martinez in the third frame. It was his second straight start giving up five runs, inflating his ERA to 7.96 through 31.2 innings this season. Wells is projected to face the Rangers at home next week.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Surrenders three homers
Wells (1-3) allowed five earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three across four innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Yankees.
Wells was burned by the long ball, as he allowed home runs to Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Luke Voit. Those balls over the fence accounted for all five of the earned runs he surrendered. Wells has taken consecutive turns through the rotation and allowed seven earned runs across eight innings while striking out five and walking three. Despite those poor results, he may remain a starter after Matt Harvey (knee) was lost for the season.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Alexander Wells: Stays in rotation
Wells is listed as the Orioles' starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Yankees in Baltimore.
The Australian lefty will stick in the rotation for a second straight turn and pick up his fifth start of the season overall after he tossed four innings his last time out against the Royals on Sept. 7, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks. While the outing was nothing to write home about, he'll receive another start nonetheless after Baltimore's rotation depth took a hit with Matt Harvey sustaining a season-ending knee injury in his outing last week....
