Making sense of John Means’ rehab struggles

The Orioles elected to utilize internal options to replace John Means and Kyle Bradish early in the season. Baltimore had Tyler Wells and Cole Irvin on the roster, and the Birds expected both Bradish and Means to return at some point this spring.

Unfortunately, both Wells and Irvin have pitched like players that belong on the outside looking in. Wells holds an 0-2 record with a 5.87 ERA after three starts, and Irvin sits at 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA. Irvin nearly picked up the first victory between the pair on Monday, but he failed to complete five innings.
