The Boston Red Sox will not see the Balimore Orioles’ most established pitcher in 2022.
“Hey all, just wanted to put a statement out,” Means tweeted. “After multiple MRI’s it’s confirmed that I will need Tommy John surgery. I’m obviously disappointed, but more motivated than ever. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to watching what this team can do this year. I’ll be back, Go O’s.”
The 28-year-old starter has a career 3.81 ERA in 70 games played and will target a 2023 return.
