Pitcher Logan Gillaspie was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk this afternoon to increase bullpen depth during a rough stretch of games. Infielder Rylan Bannon was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.
Gillaspie, added to the 40-man roster after the 2021 season, has made nine combined appearances between Double-A Bowie and Norfolk and registered a 3.14 ERA and 1.186 WHIP with 17 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings. He surrendered two runs in 6 1/3 innings with the Tides.
Baltimore starter Tyler Wells (1-3), who allowed three runs on eight hits, including a home run to Miguel Cabrera, said he doesn’t put extra pressure on himself when the offense isn’t producing many runs.
“For me, not really. I gotta focus on my job,” Wells said. “I believe in our hitters. They’ve done a lot of really good things as of late. The last three games haven’t really told the bigger picture, I guess is a better way to put it. But I have no doubt that they’re going to come around.”
Wells may not have had his best day, but he still made it through another start without walking anyone. It was Wells' 5th straight start without a walk.
