Orioles Chris Tillman fails to go five Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) 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.

Chris Tillman picks up the win Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman earned the win Thursday in Game 1 of the ALDS.

Tillman only lasted five innings, but got the job done. He allowed two runs on four hits during the outing. Tillman struck out six and walked two. Home runs were the main issue for Tillman Thursday. Victor Martinez started things off in the second inning by belting a solo shot. J.D. Martinez followed him up with a solo shot of his own, tying the game. The Orioles would tag Max Scherzer for an additional run in the second inning, giving Tillman the lead. Tillman settled in at that point, going three scoreless before being pulled. 

The club hasn't announced Tillman's next start at this time. 


Chris Tillman gets nod for Game 1 of ALDS


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman has drawn the nod for Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Tigers Thursday.

Tillman has been a force in the Orioles rotation over the last three seasons, going 38-16 with a 3.42 ERA and 395:158 K:BB ratio in 499 2/3 innings. That included a 13-6 record, 3.34 ERA and 150:66 K:BB ratio in 207 1/3 innings in 2014.

Manager Buck Showalter has informed his players of his rotation plans after Game 1, but he won't announce them until after Thursday's game, the Baltimore Sun reports.


Chris Tillman proves to be hittable Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman proved to be hittable Friday against the Blue Jays.

Tillman allowed four runs on 11 hits over six innings. He struck out five and did not issue any walks during the outing.

With the loss, Tillman dropped to 13-6. 


Orioles' ALDS rotation taking shape


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/23/2014) 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.


Orioles shuffle starting rotation


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) 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.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chris Tillman fails to factor into decision vs. Twins


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Chris Tillman picks up a win


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman won his 11th game Monday against the Rays.

Tillman allowed one unearned run on three hits over seven innings. He struck out two and walked two during the outing. Tillman gave up his only run in the third inning. Tillman allowed a leadoff single to open the frame. The next batter should have resulted in an out, but a missed catch by the second baseman caused Jose Molina to reach on an error. Yunel Escobar was able to advance to third on the play. The next batter hit into a double play. While Tillman was able to pick up two outs, Escobar was able to score on the play. The run was not charged to Tillman due to the error.

With the win, Tillman improved to 11-5. He'll take on the Twins in his next start. 


Chris Tillman becomes important hot-hand play


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/20/2014) With the season winding down and no time but the present to make up ground in the standings, you may no longer be able to wait out the most talented players, trusting them to make a bigger impact in the long run. Instead, you may have to turn to a hot-hand play.

And at least at starting pitcher, there are few hands hotter than Chris Tillman right now.

In his last 14 starts -- or more than half his season so far -- he has a 2.31 ERA and 1.01 WHIP, and he's been consistently good throughout that stretch, throwing 12 quality starts. A reduced strikeout rate early on was reason for skepticism, but over his last five starts, he has averaged 8.3 strikeouts per nine innings.

Most encouraging of all, we've seen him go on a run like this before, finishing out last season with a 3.39 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 8.5 strikeouts per nine innings in 11 starts. Of course, that doesn't explain why he had a 5.20 ERA over 13 starts in between. He seems to have a little Matt Garza in him, looking like waiver fodder half the time and a Fantasy mainstay the other half.

Can you trust that Tillman has legitimately broken out this time? I wouldn't, but again, that's not the most pertinent question to ask this time of year. Can you trust him right now? I would.


Chris Tillman excellent against the White Sox


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman turned in an excellent start Tuesday against the White Sox.

Tillman allowed one run on three hits over eight innings. He struck out nine and walked one. The only blemish against Tillman was a solo home run by Jose Abreu in the first inning. Tillman would give up his two other hits in the second and third inning. He then tossed three perfect innings before walking Abreu in the bottom of the seventh. Tillman worked around the walk, and did not allow a hit over his last five innings.

With the win, Tillman improved to 10-5. He'll take on the Rays in his next start.


Orioles jumble weekend rotation


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) The Orioles have altered their weekend rotation, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Ubaldo Jimenez will be skipped the next time through, so the club had to make a few changes. Bud Norris will get the call Saturday. Miguel Gonzalez has not officially been announced for Sunday's game yet, but it looks like he'll receive the start. Chris Tillman will pitch Monday. 


Chris Tillman goes seven strong Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman tossed seven strong innings Wednesday against the Yankees.

Tillman allowed two earned runs on five hits over seven innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks. Tillman's only mistake came in the third inning. After giving up a leadoff double to Stephen Drew, Tillman allowed Francisco Cervelli to go deep for a two-run shot. He was able to settle in after that, tossing four more scoreless innings. Tillman was actually in line for the loss when he left the game, but the Orioles managed to battle back, giving him a no-decision. Tillman will take on the White Sox in his next start.
