In a season where very little has gone right for the Baltimore Orioles this season, the club will now be without its lone All-Star representative for the foreseeable future.

Starting pitcher John Means is headed to the 10-day injured list after the team diagnosed him with a left biceps strain that he suffered during his start on Wednesday.

Means turned one of his shortest outings of the season on Wednesday. He lasted just 3.1 innings in his start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the first time he failed to throw five-plus innings since April 18.

The 26-year-old southpaw has been outstanding this season for the Orioles with a 3.12 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and an 8-6 record for a team that entered Friday with a .324 winning percentage.
