So now Tyler Wells has won his last four in a row. I'm betting the farm against him in his next start.

It's not over yet, but so many samoleons!

Tyler Wells owners are fully aware he's won his last three starts (and four of his last five); I doubt anyone else is. And so... we are betting on the Mariners tonight in Seattle.

With Kirby on the mound we won't be getting good odds.

Tyler Wells (P) BAL - Mar. 31
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=14991

Wells will open the year in the Orioles' rotation, though he'll piggyback with a multi-inning reliever, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Wells was a starter throughout his minor-league career, though he hasn't started a game since 2018. He missed all of 2019 due to Tommy John surgery and didn't pitch in 2020 due to the canceled minor-league season, but he returned as a reliever last season and pitched fairly well. He recorded a 4.11 ERA in 57 innings, with his strong 29.0 percent strikeout rate and 5.4 percent walk rate being offset by a very low 21.4 percent groundball rate. The 27-year-old could be an interesting deep-league option if he can keep his strikeout and walk numbers from regressing too much over longer outings, though he may not pitch deep enough to qualify for the win in most of his starts.

Erik Halterman, looking at spring training job battles for Rotowire:

Baltimore Orioles

Rotation: Spots are up for grabs in the Orioles' rotation, with only John Means and probably  Jordan Lyles looking secure. Bruce Zimmermann struggled to a 5.04 ERA in 14 outings last season, striking out just 19.6 percent of batters, though those numbers look respectable next to his competition. Zac Lowther made six starts and four relief appearances in his debut season, beating Zimmermann slightly in strikeout rate (21.7 percent) but posting a poor 6.67 ERA. Keegan Akin finished with a similar 6.63 ERA in 95 innings, with his strikeout rate falling from 30.2 percent in his 25.2-inning debut the prior year all the way to 19.2 percent. Jorge Lopez has much more MLB experience than the aforementioned trio but has finished with an ERA north of 6.00 in three consecutive seasons. The wild card is Tyler Wells. He was a starter in the minors but debuted last season in a relief role after missing the previous two seasons due to Tommy John surgery. His 4.11 ERA was nothing special, and his 21.4 percent groundball rate is a red flag, but his 29.0 percent strikeout rate and 5.4 percent walk rate make for a promising combination.
