Chris Tillman strikes out six in no-decision vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman wasn't a factor in the decision Tuesday, giving up five runs (three earned) on six hits and one walk in five innings and striking out six in his team's 7-6, 12-inning win over the Angels.

Tillman had a four-game quality-start streak going until pitching just five innings Tuesday, but he remains winles in six July appearances. He owns a 3.97 ERA and 89:52 K:BB ratio in 136 innings. Tillman is slated to take on the Mariners Sunday.


Orioles make tweak to rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) The Orioles announced Sunday they realigned their rotation for the upcoming week, per The Baltimore Sun.

Wei-Yin Chen, who was scheduled to start Wednesday against the Angels, has been pushed back to Friday against the Mariners. Chris Tillman, Kevin Gausman and Bud Norris will face the Angels during a three-game series, which starts Tuesday.

"Wei-Yin had his top pitch count of the year, and I want to keep Gaus on turn," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "I think he can benefit from that."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, giving up just one earned run on five hits and two walks in six innings and striking out three in his team's 3-2 loss to the Angels.

Tillman hasn't surrendered more than three earned runs in an outing since June 5, but he hasn't been able to score a win in July. The Angels were able to pick up a run in the first inning before Tillman held them scoreless over the next five frames. He owns a 3.92 ERA and 83:51 K:BB ratio in 131 innings. Tillman is scheduled to face the Angels again Tuesday.


Chris Tillman has solid outing spoiled by bullpen


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Orioles starter Chris Tillman turned in a quality start in a no-decision against the Athletics in Oakland on Friday. He was in line for the win until reliever Zach Britton surrendered a three-run walkoff home run in the ninth.

Tillman allowed a run-scoring single to Jon Jaso in the third and a solo home run to Derek Norris in the fifth for his only blemishes of the night. He gave up two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out six over 6 2/3 innings of work. Of his 103 pitches, 65 were strikes.

Tillman owns a 4.03 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP over 21 starts (125 innings). His next start will come Wednesday against the Angels.

Chris Tillman tosses quality start in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The right-hander yielded three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over 6 2/3 innings of work.

Orioles lay out rotation vs. Yankees


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Orioles will have Miguel Gonzalez pitch Friday, followed by Ubaldo Jimenez Saturday and Chris Tillman Sunday, in the final series before the All-Star break. 


Chris Tillman surrenders two runs in no-decision Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman didn't factor into the decision Monday after giving up two earned runs on five hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out six in his team's 8-2, 11-inning win over the Nationals.

The Orioles gave TIllman a 2-0 lead on a fourth-inning home run, but he let the lead slip away after serving up his own two-run shot in the sixth inning. He did a good job keeping his control in check after walking four batters in two of his last three outings. Tillman owns a 4.11 ERA and 70:45 K:BB ratio in 111 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Yankees Saturday.


This version of Chris Tillman not worth your time


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/3/2014) Even with his so-so outing Wednesday against the Rangers, Chris Tillman has a 2.14 ERA over his last five starts, which might lead you to believe one of my favorite sleepers coming into the season is back on track. But I couldn't be any more discouraged by the direction his season has taken.

See, in those five starts, he has totaled all of nine strikeouts. That's (not to state the obvious, but just to emphasize the point) fewer than two per start. He's had more walks than that during that stretch, which perhaps goes without saying, but with 12 in 33 2/3 innings, it's not like that rate is so great either.

It'd be one thing if Henderson Alvarez put together a streak like this. He's so ground ball oriented that he doesn't need to miss bats to succeed. But that would be a new trick for Tillman.

This version is a far cry from the one who attracted me with a 1.07 WHIP and 8.6 strikeouts per nine innings after the All-Star break last year, and I don't want to be the one who falls for it.


Offense gets Chris Tillman off the hook


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman struggled early in Wednesday's start against the Rangers, and ended up settling for a no-decision in a 6-4 win.

Tillman was tagged for four runs in the first three innings, and the offense didn't really get going until after he already left the game. Tillman was charged with three earned runs on seven hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings, while striking out just two hitters on 111 pitches.

Tillman's two-start winning streak came to an ended with the no-decision, as his record stands at 7-4. He has a 4.21 ERA heading into his next turn in the rotation, set to come Monday against the Nationals.


O's manager discusses upcoming rotation plans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday starting pitcher Chris Tillman will start on regular rest Wednesday against the Rangers.

Showalter added Wei-Yin Chen might start Thursday against Texas, but he had no further update on pitcher Kevin Gausman other than the right-hander will have a work day for Class A Aberdeen Monday.


Chris Tillman cites confidence, control for comeback


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Orioles starter Chris Tillman has credited a mechanical tinker that has resulted in better fastball control with his recent success.

Tillman gave up just five earned runs in his first four starts combined to open the season before a long stretch of inconsistency and occasional poundings that rose his ERA to 5.20 on June 5. He has since yielded just five earned runs in 28 innings over his last four outings, including one run in his last two starts.

"I think it's still coming," he told the Baltimore Sun. "It's still a process. You can't settle. You've always got to keep working. Next time, I want to throw my breaking ball better for strikes. I was able to throw it, but very few were in the zone for good pitches. You've always got to get better."

Tillman is 7-4 this season with a 4.18 ERA that has shrunk more than a point since he bottomed out.


Chris Tillman wins second straight


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman put together one of his best starts of the season Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Rays.

Tillman allowed just a solo home run in the second inning, as the Rays couldn't touch him for much of the start. He was charged with just one run in eight innings of work, on four hits and one walk, while striking out a pair of batters on 104 pitches.

Tillman won his second start in a row to improve his record to 7-4, while lowering his ERA to 4.18. His next start is set for Thursday against the Rangers.

Chris Tillman could be moved up to Friday start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Chris Tillman outduels Yankees ace


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman outpitched Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka, leading Baltimore to an 8-0 win Sunday. The right-handed hurler tossed seven scoreless innings, allowing four hits and four walks.

Tillman (6-4), who struck out two, ran into some trouble in the third inning after Ichiro Suzuki reached with a single and Brett Garder got on base with a walk with one out. But Tillman ended the threat by getting Derek Jeter to ground into a double play. Tillman put two more runners on base in the fourth inning, but he also escaped unscathed.

Tillman won for the first time in four starts Sunday. He's currently slated to make his next start Saturday against the Rays, but he could be moved up to Friday if Bud Norris needs an extra day to recover from a groin injury.

Chris Tillman blames mechanics for struggles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Orioles starter Chris Tillman said his problems are mechanical and that he's just not hitting his spots with his fastball or breaking pitches, reports the Baltimore Sun. He's allowed 12 earned runs in his last two starts and has not thrown more than six innings in seven of his past eight starts.

"Just inconsistent. I always go back to it, but I think when you are consistent in your delivery, on the mound, you are able to get on a roll," Tillman said. “And I’m not able to carry it over. Just comes down to my mechanics, my delivery. It’s close. But you got to be able to execute."

Tillman will try to turn things around Saturday against Houston.

It was the second straight ugly outing for Tillman, who now owns a 4.69 ERA and 51:27 K:BB ratio in 63 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Astros Saturday.
