Orioles' Miguel Gonzalez may get start in season-opening series
|(3/29/15) When the Orioles open the season with a three-game series in Tampa Bay, manager Buck Showalter said Miguel Gonzalez will likely start one of the games, reports MLB.com.|
“We’re leaning that way. It kind of slots him out the rest of the month where he should be," Showalter said. "Like I say, we’ve got a rare opportunity with playing in our division for as much as we do and the track record our starters have there in different venues against different teams and kind of take advantage of that.”
For his career, Gonzalez is 3-1 with a 2.64 ERA in five starts at Tropicana Field.
Showalter said earlier this spring that Wei-Yin Chen would probably pitch among those first three games as well as Chris Tillman, who's been widely speculated as the club’s Opening Day starter.
Report: Orioles in 'continuous dialogue' with pitcher Chris Tillman
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/28/15) The Orioles and pitcher Chris Tillman are reportedly engaged in "continuous dialogue" for a long-term extension and have been for the past several weeks, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Tillman signed a one-year, $4.315 million deal in January to avoid arbitration and the discussions for a new deal are still considered preliminary, according to the report.
Tillman posted a 13-6 record in 2014 with a 3.34 ERA in 34 starts.
Orioles' Chris Tillman pitches his way into the sixth inning vs. Detroit
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Orioles starter Chris Tillman pitched his way into the sixth inning for the first time this spring on Thursday against the Tigers. He allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four over 5 1/3 innings of work in a 6-4 defeat.
"Wanted to get him up for the sixth inning," manager Buck Showalter said, per MASN Sports. "This is a night where he could have gone seven or eight, I think. Efficient with his pitches. He was good.
"Balls were flying out of here. Of course, a couple of them were legit."
Orioles, Tillman focusing on 'concepts' in long-term deal talks
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) The Orioles and Chris Tillman have begun to talk about a potential long-term contract in the last day or two, but the discussions have focused on "concepts" rather than hard numbers, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.
Tillman and the team will continue the discussions throughout the remainder of spring training, with Opening Day viewed as the deadline to agree to a deal. Tillman is set to make $4.315 million in first year of arbitration eligibility this season.
Report: Orioles, Chris Tillman working on long-term extension
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) The Orioles and representatives of pitcher Chris Tillman have continued to work on a long-term extension that would keep the pitcher in Baltimore past the 2017 season, the New York Post reports.
Tillman was eligible for arbitration for the first time this past offseason and agreed to a one-year deal worth $4.315 million. The two sides are likely to break off negotiations by the beginning of the regular season, per the report.
Tillman has put together two straight excellent seasons in the Orioles rotation, going 29-13 while tossing more than 200 innings each year.
|2014 summary: In posting a 3.34 ERA over 34 starts, Chris Tillman solidified his role as the Orioles' ace. As the 46th-ranked starter in standard Rotisserie formats, Tillman was well short of being an ace for owners in those formats, but he collected the 23rd-highest point total in standard Head-to-Head leagues. Key to Tillman's point-league success was his 207 1/3 innings and mere six losses over 34 starts. To be fair, Tillman showed some genuine improvement in the second half, as he struck out 7.7 batters per nine innings while walking only 1.8 on his way to a 2.33 post-break ERA.
Playing time status: Tillman has topped 200 innings in back-to-back seasons, and as the Orioles' likely opening day starter, he would appear to be on track to do it again in 2015.
2015 outlook: Tillman just might be one of those pitchers who will always fare better than what advanced metrics like xFIP would predict for him. For three years running, he has been highly successful at stranding baserunners and preventing base hits on balls in play, both of which have rates that are usually subject to random fluctuation. Despite pedestrian strikeout, walk and ground ball rates, Tillman should be an above-average starter who is targeted in the mid-to-late rounds in standard mixed leagues.
