This will get the MLB Hot Stove sizzling. MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports “Word has gotten out that the Orioles would listen on star CF Cedric Mullins, and teams are lining up to give it a shot knowing it’s a long shot. Asking price is understandably extremely high.

The only guarantees in life these days? Death, taxes and the Orioles posting a losing record. It makes sense that Baltimore is willing to shell out in an effort to improve, considering the organization hasn’t sniffed a winning record since 2016 and finished last in the American League East in four of the last five seasons (and no, we won’t mention who they finished in front of in 2020).

The Orioles’ poor performance in that time meant they were often high in the waiver claim order and thus had the first crack as teams knocked players off their rosters. If there was a need — such as on the infield or on the pitcher’s mound — the Orioles have been aggressive in plugging those holes with these low-cost solutions.

What makes Means enticing is a high-spin fastball that he spins efficiently to generate a lot of swings and misses. He leans on it about half of the time and rounds out his repertoire with a changeup, curveball, and slider. At his best, he can be quite dominant — he no-hit the Mariners in 2021 — but he’s usually not at his best.

Could the Red Sox swipe John Means from the Orioles? Going into this offseason we knew that the Red Sox would be shopping for some starting pitching and now that Eduardo Rodriguez is in Detroit, that need is even greater. As it stands right now, Boston has a righty heavy rotation but a very interesting report came out earlier today that could allow Chaim Bloom to bring a bit more balance to his pitching staff.

There is a lot of noise out there and there are a bunch of reasons why nothing might happen about a given rumor. The biggest is that a given rumor could simply be mistaken because someone who doesn’t know what they are talking about is spouting off to reporters. For an Orioles example, consider several years ago when Dexter Fowler was absolutely signing with the O’s.

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher John Means enjoyed one of the best seasons of his MLB career in 2021. Means looked like an ace for the Orioles in the first half before a shoulder injury caused him to miss some time in the second half of the season. Means’ value took a hit after the injury but the recent actions of the Orioles prove they still think highly-enough of his ability.
