Catcher David Bañuelos is selected to take Tyler Wells' place on the active roster.

Unexpected Arrival

The Orioles already have two catchers on the roster in Adley Rutschman and James McCann, but Bañuelos is added as a precautionary measure.

The Catching Situation

The Orioles haven't revealed the severity of Tyler Wells' injury, but any elbow injury is cause for concern, especially for a pitcher.

Concerning Injury

With Wells joining Kyle Bradish and John Means on the injured list, the Orioles face a challenge in managing their starting rotation.

The Orioles will need to find a replacement for Wells in their rotation, with Bruce Zimmermann being a likely choice.

Finding a Replacement

If given the chance, David Bañuelos will make his major league debut as he joins the Orioles.
