Orioles activate John Means, place Grayson Rodriguez on injured list

John Means is officially back with the Orioles. The team had to activate him from the injured list with his rehab assignment wrapped up at its maximum of 30 days. That was expected. Not expected is the move the Orioles made to fit Means onto the roster. Grayson Rodriguez has been placed on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to Tuesday, with what the team announced as right shoulder inflammation.

For weeks, we’ve all been wondering how the Orioles would manage to get Means back into the rotation when he was active. Would that mean fellow lefty Cole Irvin would be squeezed out?
