Tyler Wells

27-Year-Old PitcherSP
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Wells boasts an intriguing skill set, but it comes with a couple of warnings. Last season was his first since 2018 Tommy John surgery, and he ended the year a week early with right shoulder inflammation. The bigger concern is Wells is an extreme flyball pitcher, which can be hazardous in Camden Yards, not to mention the AL East. On the other hand, he's always missed bats while being frugal with free passes. Last season's 23.7% K-BB% was 38th best among the 398 hurlers collecting at least 40 innings. Wells features a 95-mph four-seam fastball, slider, curve, and occasional changeup. He was 4-for-6 in saves during September before he was shut down. At minimum, Wells should be given the chance to break camps as the Orioles closer. If he can manage to keep homers under control, Wells has a chance to be a sneaky source of saves. Read Past Outlooks

Gives up eight hits in loss
PBaltimore Orioles
May 15, 2022
Wells (1-3) allowed three runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out two in four innings to take the loss Sunday against the Tigers.
ANALYSIS
Wells had lasted at least five innings in each of his last three starts, and he posted a 2.25 ERA and 0.75 WHIP in 16 innings during that time. However, he was unable to replicate his success Sunday, and he was charged with his first loss since April 21. The 27-year-old has exhibited plenty of command recently and has now put together five straight starts without issuing a walk. Wells tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Rays on Friday.
