|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Orioles have locked up catcher Matt Wieters, starter Chris Tillman, first baseman Chris Davis and reliever Brian Matusz on Friday, avoiding arbitration, according to MASN Sports, the Baltimore Sun and CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Wieters will make $8.3 million and Matusz will make $3.2 million. Meanwhile, Tillman reached a $4.315 million settlement for 2015. He earned $546,000 last year.
Chris Tillman willing to talk long-term deal with Orioles
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/14/15) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman confirmed Wednesday there is mutual interest between him and the team regarding a long-term contract. Tillman is in his first year of arbitration and is under team control through the 2017 season.
“I think it’s smart to listen, and I think it’s dumb not to,” Tillman said, per The Baltimore Sun. “You weigh all the options and go with it. I don’t know a whole lot about it, to tell you the truth. My agent called me about it, and I told him, ‘You know what? Call me back when you know something.’ That’s not me. I’m day to day. I roll with the flow.
“I let my guys do their job, and that’s what they’re there for. I can listen to older guys and that’s really all I can do. Would I like to be with these guys and be their teammates for a while? You’re [darn] right I would. We have a good team, a fun team and I enjoy it here.”
The 26-year-old Tillman is 38-16 with a 3.42 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 82 starts since 2012.
'Mutual interest' in Chris Tillman extension, O's say
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/3/15) Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said there's "mutual interest" in working out a contract extension with pitcher Chris Tillman, reports MASN Sports.
Tillman, 21, is first-year arbitration eligible and the undisputed opening day starter for the Orioles, at the moment. He has gone 29-13 with a 3.52 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over the previous two seasons, exceeding 200 innings in both seasons.
Orioles Chris Tillman fails to go five Friday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/11/14) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman failed to go five innings Friday against the Royals.
Tillman allowed five runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings. He struck out three and walked two during the outing. The third inning proved to be problematic for Tillman. After an Alcides Escobar solo shot, Tillman loaded the bases. With two outs, Alex Gordon hit a broken-bat, bases-clearing double, making the score 4-0. The Royals added another run on a Billy Butler sac fly in the fifth. He received a no-decision for his performance after the Orioles tied things up late.
|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.
