|Chris Tillman readying for Friday start |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/16/14) Orioles ace Chris Tillman, who was set to start Wednesday before the Tuesday rainout pushed him back, told the Baltimore Sun that he's preparing to start Friday in Boston. He will have gone seven days between starts.
Tillman hopes the extra time off won't curtail his momentum. He boasts an 0.84 ERA in three starts with 15 hits and 15 strikeouts in 21 1/3 innings.
|Chris Tillman twirls a gem in losing effort |

(4/11/14) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman put together another gem on Friday, but was not back by any run support, as he suffered his first loss of the season against Toronto.
Tillman (1-1) surrendered two runs in the fourth inning, both on a fielder's choice. He was charged with two unearned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out six over eight innings pitched. He tossed 104 pitches, 64 of which were strikes.
Tillman has not allowed more than one earned run in each of his fist three starts. The right-hander will make his next start Wednesday at home against Tampa Bay.

(4/10/14) The Orioles finally announced their rotation plans for their weekend series against the Blue Jays late Wednesday evening.
Chris Tillman was moved up a day to start the series opener Friday. Bud Norris was moved back to Saturday and Ubaldo Jimenez will start the series finale Sunday.
|Chris Tillman falls two outs shy of complete game |

(4/6/14) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman was masterful over 8 1/3 innings Sunday, falling two outs shy of a complete game during a 3-1 win at Detroit. Tillman (1-0) handed the Tigers their first loss in five games this season.
Tillman didn't give up much to the Tigers, yielding one run on five hits and one walk. He struck out five.
The only mistake he made over 8 1/3 innings was allowing a solo home run in the fourth inning to hot-hitting Torii Hunter, who had seven RBI during the three-game series against Baltimore.
Tillman has allowed just two runs through his first two starts. He is sporting a 1.35 ERA. The right-hander is slated to make his next start Saturday against Toronto. Tillman was 2-1 with a 3.31 ERA and one complete game in five starts against the Blue Jays last season.
|Chris Tillman pitches five one-run innings in opener |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/31/14) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman didn't factor into the decision in Monday's opener after giving up one earned run on seven hits and one walk in five innings while striking out four in his team's 2-1 win over the Red Sox.
Tillman's only run allowed came on a Grady Sizemore home run in the fourth inning. The Orioles ace is looking for a big followup to 2013's 16-7 season. He'll take on the Tigers Saturday.
|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.
