Can Means become the Orioles’ version of Kuechel?

He probally top 5.  Right now my top 5

1. Lowe

2. Means

3. Chavis

4.  Turnbill

5. Vlad Jr.

If Means keeps pitching like this I think he gets ROY unless another player tears it up in the second half.

Means' K rate is 7.5, league is 8.8.
His walk rate is 2.4, league is 3.3.
His HR rate is 1.0, league is 1.4.
His FIP is 3.96, league is 4.48.
His BABIP is .253, league is .297.

He's a little better than league walks and homers, a little worse in Ks, and way better in BABIP.  BABIP isn't a part of FIP. 

If his BABIP is so much under the league average(I’m surprised it’s not much worse, given the frequent idiotic infield defense) isn’t there a danger that much of his success is luck?

Much is overstating things a bit but yea, something to watch.

The 6 Earned Runs that the D-Rays scored was a season-high for Means.

Means also doubled the home run total that he has ceded at OPACY so far this season (from 3 to 6.) 

This was the 2nd consecutive outing in which Means did not walk any batters.

It got away from him in the 4th for sure, but that ump was squeezing him all game

Ain't that the truth. I thought there were at least 5 or so borderline pitches of which he got none. And I was surprised that Palmer/Thorne didn't really comment.

I see a grand total of one pitch that was really a strike but was called a ball.

Still wanted a few of those on the outside corner. Maybe it was the way it was framed, but they were looking good on the TV.

You have pitch selection? Seemed to me he went away from the CH in a lot of counts when he normally would have used it. I did notice the HR allowed was on one left up, so maybe he didn’t have it working.

If he’s not throwing the CH effectively he’s in trouble. His other pitches are below average.

First full ML season, I am expecting some regression here heading into August.  And I agree with @Il BuonO, the changeup needs to be on.

He did rebound nicely from the previous bad start with a great start against the Sox.  Looking forward to seeing how he rebounds from this one.

For me though, it's all about how he's pitching this time, next season.  Has to prove that he's more than a one year wonder.
