|Orioles' ALDS rotation taking shape |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(9/23/14) Orioles manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun he will use four starting pitchers for the American League Divisional Series. Chris Tillman is on course to be the team's starter for Game 1 on Oct. 2, and Miguel Gonzalez and Wei-Yin Chen are the likely starters for Games 2 and 3, though their order has yet to be determined.
Should the series advance to a Game 4, Bud Norris would be the leading candidate to make that start.

(9/22/14) The Orioles will start right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez at the Yankees on Tuesday, allowing them to stick to their plan of giving each of their starting pitchers an extra day of rest heading into the postseason.
"There's a fine line between not having enough rest and having too much rest, so we're trying to have every guy that pitches get one extra day before the start," manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun. “We're going to try to give everybody, so you're not too far away from the ball but you get a little extra rest. They all seem to respond well to that."
While left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday at the Yankees, right-hander Chris Tillman won't start again until Friday at Toronto. Miguel Gonzalez will start the team's final game Sunday at Toronto.
As of now, Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman are scheduled to start Wednesday's and Thursday's games at the Yankees, but that could change. Jimenez could end up making a second start before season's end.
|Chris Tillman picks up 13th win Saturday |

(9/20/14) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman turned in a strong start Saturday against the Red Sox.
Tillman allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked two during the outing. Tillman gave up both of his runs in the first inning. After opening the game with a walk, Tillman allowed David Ortiz to belt a two-run homer to left center. Tillman would settle in at that point, keeping the Red Sox off the board for the rest of his outing.
With the win, Tillman improved to 13-5. He’ll take on the Blue Jays in his next start.

(9/9/14) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman earned a win Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on six hits and two walks in five innings while striking out five in his team's 4-1 victory over the Red Sox.
Tillman (12-5) remains undefeated in the second half, with his only run Tuesday coming on a solo shot in the fourth inning. The Orioles have won each of his last nine starts. Tillman owns a 3.36 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 133:63 K:BB ratio in 187 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Blue Jays Monday.
|Chris Tillman finished 2013 with a second straight solid season, posting a 3.71 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and striking out 179 batters in 206 1/3 innings. While he was slightly better on the road, Tillman's splits were relatively even -- his ERA didn't go off the charts in any month, and his first half was remarkably similar to his second. Tillman also avoided implosions, giving up five or more runs in a game just four times over 33 starts. And he finished strong in the strikeout department, with five games of eight or more strikeouts over his last eight. There are some minor concerns with his peripheral numbers -- Tillman's BABIP still suggests a slight bit of luck, and his strand rate is above league average (implying that more runs should score against him in 2014, if everything evens out), but he had wonky peripherals in 2012, too, so it's looking more like a rule than the exception. This all adds up to Tillman being an underrated asset heading into 2014 -- a quietly excellent pitcher who won't excite drafters with flashy strikeout numbers (although one could argue there is some potential there) or eye-poppingly low ratios, but could be a rotation cog who can be left in the lineup every week to do good things. Tillman makes for a stellar late-round sleeper in most Fantasy formats.
