Orioles 2024 preseason projections: Dillon Tate, Tyler Wells

Tyler Wells had three solid months in the Orioles rotation last year. | Photo by Richard Rodriguez/ These two pitchers who have a wide range of possibilities are important pieces to do well This time a month ago, as far as any Orioles fan knew, the Opening Day rotation wasn’t going to have any need of Tyler Wells. Dillon Tate was something of a bonus for the bullpen after missing last year, with not a lot of pressure on him to match his 2022 performance. As February draws to a close, the roster picture has changed and the success of Tate and Wells is much more...

Tate impresses in Orioles return, Rodriguez happy to "rip some fastballs" (O's win 5-2)

SARASOTA, Fla. – An exhibition game, with results that don’t really count, meant everything to Orioles reliever Dillon Tate.Tate was back on the mound today after a right flexor forearm strain kept him away from it last spring. He didn’t pitch for the Orioles after experiencing a setback during a rehab assignment, but is in good health again and equipped to head north with the club.Three Detroit hitters faced Tate in the third inning.

SARASOTA, Fla. – Dillon Tate threw his second live batting practice session this afternoon in his bid to make the Opening Day roster after missing the 2023 season with elbow/forearm injuries.  Tate faced six batters. Ramón Urías flied to deep center field, Adley Rutschman bounced a ball up the middle, Ryan O’Hearn produced a sharp grounder past the mound, Ryan Mountcastle and Daniel Johnson lifted fly balls to the outfield and Kyle Stowers struck out.“That’s a knock,” Anthony Santander yelled from the dugout on Rutschman’s ball.Tate remains mostly satisfied with his results....

Tate offers important addition from within to Orioles bullpen

SARASOTA, Fla. – “It’s a normal spring training at this point.”Dillon Tate says these words in the most casual manner, without a hint of emotion in his voice or anything close to an expression. This is his usual delivery. Also quite normal for him.The media and his Orioles teammates can make a bigger deal over Tate’s return from last year’s elbow and forearm injuries that kept him away from the active roster for the entire season.About three weeks ago, Tate told the assembled media at Bowlero in Timonium, one of the last stops in the Birdland Caravan, that he reported early to...
