Chris Tillman readying for Friday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) 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


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) 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.

Orioles align rotation for Toronto series


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) 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


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) 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
(3/31/2014) 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 surrenders two runs vs. Rays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman gave up two earned runs on nine hits and one walk in 4 2/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 4-4 tie with the Rays Wednesday.

Tillman will get the call on opening day after posting a 4.67 ERA and 15:3 K:BB ratio in 17 1/3 innings. Despite the high ERA, he's had only one rough outing this spring.


Chris Tillman back on schedule


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Chris Tillman scratched Friday with minor illness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman was scratched from Friday's scheduled start due to a minor illness, MLB.com reports.

"He's still going to pitch five days from Opening Day, that'll be the priority," manager Buck Showalter told MLB.com. "If he just takes a couple strong work days then makes that start -- he had five innings his last time out -- he'll be fine."

Tillman is 2-0 with a 4.97 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in four spring starts.


Chris Tillman to start for Orioles in season opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) The Orioles announced Monday starting pitcher Chris Tillman will get the start opening day (March 31) against the Red Sox. Tillman is 2-0 with a 4.97 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in four spring starts after winning a career-high 16 games in 2013.

Chris Tillman rebounds Saturday to shut down Yankees


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2014) Orioles blossoming right-hander Chris Tillman emerged from a slow start this spring with a strong performance Saturday against an albeit skeleton Yankees lineup.

Tillman yielded just one earned run on three hits in five innings with one walk and five strikeouts. He lowered his ERA from 7.04 to 4.97 in the process.

His struggles earlier this spring are likely of little concern. Tillman took the momentum gained in 2012 and ran with it last season to the tune of a 16-7 record, 3.71 ERA and 179 strikeouts in 206 1/3 innings.


Chris Tillman 'felt good' despite rough outing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman had his worst performance of the spring Monday against the Pirates. Tillman was tagged for five runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings, while striking out four.

Tillman struggled from the get-go as he hit the leadoff hitter and the first four batters all reached base safely. Tillman gave up two runs in the first inning and two more in the second on a Russell Martin two-run homer.

Despite the rough outing, which resulted in his ERA jumping from 2.08 to 7.04, Tillman didn't sound disappointed with his performance.

"Felt good," he said, per MASNsports.com. "Working on command. Two areas I would have liked to be better is first-pitch strike and two-strike approach. I left the ball up with two strikes and two hits. First pitch could have been better.

"I've just got to get myself ready. I'm going based off feel now, and as long as I feel like I executed the pitch well, physically felt well, that's all that really matters. Like I said, first-pitch strikes could have been better and two-strike approach."


Chris Tillman strikes out two vs. Twins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman surrendered three runs (one earned) on four hits in 2 1/3 innings while striking out two in Wednesday's spring start against the Twins.

Tillman had a strong showing in his debut last week, striking out three in two scoreless innings, but things didn't go as smoothly Wednesday as the Twins jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two innings. Tillman is in the mix to start on opening day for Baltimore.


Chris Tillman strikes out three in spring debut Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2014) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman looked sharp in Friday's spring debut, striking out three batters and allowing one hit in two scoreless innings in his team's 4-2 win over the Rays.

"I felt good about my stuff," Tillman told MLB.com after the start. "Just wanted to work on fastball command for the most part. I think this early in spring, it doesn't really matter who you face. It's just going out there and getting the feel again; we face our own hitters the first two weeks and it isn't the same feel. So it was good to get the juices flowing again."

After a shaky start to his MLB career from 2009 to 2011, Tillman has excelled when called upon over the last two seasons. He went 16-7 with a 3.71 ERA and 179:68 K:BB ratio in 206 1/3 innings last season.


Chris Tillman and Zach Britton to get early spring action


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Orioles pitchers Chris Tillman and Zach Britton will pitch in the team's first spring game, according to MLB.com.

Both players are expected to go two innings in their spring debuts. Miguel Gonzalez is slated to pitch Saturday if he can get through bullpen sessions throughout the week. Tillman could be named the team's opening day starter with a strong spring. Britton is competing for a spot on the 25-man roster.


Starting opening day would be 'big deal' Chris Tillman


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) Chris Tillman is on track to be the Orioles' opening day starter, according to CSNBaltimore.com. It's an honor he would "love" to have.

"It’s kind of a big deal for anybody," Tillman said. "I’ve watched in the past guys get the news that they’d be the opening day starter, and it’s been special for them."

Even though Tillman is pretty much assured of a rotation spot, he said his mentality heading into spring training hasn't changed from previous years.

"One of the younger guys asked me, 'How does it feel knowing coming into spring?' I told him that every year I come into spring with the same mentality. You’ve got to compete for it. When there’s that competition, it’s more fun," Tillman said.


Chris Tillman blasted in no-decision


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/29/2013) Chris Tillman has struggled to keep the ball in the park all season long, and Sunday's swan song against the Red Sox was no exception. Tillman allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits and a walk, and three of those runs came on home runs by Jacoby Ellsbury and Quintin Berry -- the 32nd and 33rd homers yielded by 25-year-old this season.

Tillman did strike out five batters and, since he wasn't involved in the decision, his record for the Orioles remained at 16-7. He finished the season with a 3.71 ERA.


Chris Tillman strikes out nine in no-decision


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2013) Orioles starter Chris Tillman was once again solid for Baltimore on Tuesday night at home against the Blue Jays. Once again he came away without a win. 

Stuck on 16 wins, Tillman gave up just one earned run on five hits and one walk over seven solid innings in the no-decision. Baltimore lost 3-2 in extras. The starter struck out nine batters and lowered his ERA to 3.62. His record is 16-7 on the season. 

Tillman has lost three of his last four decisions but has continued to pitch well pretty much every time he takes the hill for Baltimore. The 25-year-old, who has 201 1/3 innings under his belt this season, has become the ace of the staff and will likely start next year as the opening day starter. Tillman may start the final game of the regular season Sunday against Boston. 


Chris Tillman ready to face the Blue Jays


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/24/2013) Chris Tillman hurt his ankle in his most recent start, but he will not miss a turn in the rotation, as he was listed as the Orioles' starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays.

This will be Tillman's 32nd start of the year, which is the most starts made by an Orioles pitcher this season.


Chris Tillman less than 100 percent


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/23/2013) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman hurt his ankle in his last start Thursday at Boston, according to MASNsports.com, but he should be fine for Tuesday's start against the Blue Jays. He's also battling a cold.

Tillman allowed three earned runs over seven innings in Thursday's loss and is 5-4 with a 3.38 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 8.3 strikeouts per nine innings in his last 12 starts. He lines up for two starts in the season's final week.


Chris Tillman strikes out eight in quality start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2013) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman turned in a quality start Thursday but still fell to 16-7 in his team's 3-1 loss to the Red Sox after surrendering three earned runs on seven hits and two walks with eight strikeouts in seven innings.

Tillman gave up a home run for the 31st time in the game, tying him for second behind A's starter A.J. Griffin. Tillman brings a 3.70 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 165:66 K:BB ratio into Tuesday's scheduled start against the Blue Jays. He could wind up facing the Red Sox again in the regular-season finale next Sunday.


Late mistake costs Chris Tillman


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2013) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman had a solid performance Saturday against the Blue Jays, but a late home run sunk him in a 4-3 loss.

Tillman tossed an eight-inning complete game in the loss, allowing four runs in the game. He gave up six hits and two walks in the game, with the big blow coming in the seventh inning on a two-run home run by Colby Rasmus that ultimately proved to be the game-winner. 

Tillman's record dropped to 16-6, while his ERA rose to 3.70. His next start is set for Thursday against the Orioles, in the series opener.


Chris Tillman wins 16th Monday


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2013) Baltimore starting pitcher Chris Tillman took the mound Monday night at home against the Yankees looking to distance the O's from New York in the standings. Tillman was able to do just that with a masterful performance.

Tillman improved to 16-5 on the season as he allowed just two earned runs on four hits and no walks over seven outstanding innings. He threw 110 pitches and was hurt only by solo homers from Alex Rodriguez and Lyle Overbay in the first and eighth innings, respectively. Tillman's ERA is now at 3.66.

The Orioles starter has allowed two or fewer earned runs in five of his last seven outings. He struck out nine batters Monday and now has 153 Ks on the season over 179 1/3 innings. Tillman has probably been the ace of the Orioles staff this season. He makes his next scheduled start on Saturday at Toronto, though that is subject to change.

Chris Tillman struggles with command in defeat


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2013) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman didn't get any run support in his outing Tuesday night in Cleveland. In the end, walks were his undoing as he took the loss to fall to 15-5 on the year.

Tillman failed to complete six innings for the first time since Aug. 2 as he suffered the loss. He walked five batters and gave up four earned runs on five hits with three strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings. He threw 102 pitches and his ERA is now at 3.71 on the year.

The Indians got to Tillman in his final inning as the walks came back to hurt him. Otherwise, he was solid Tuesday and has been consistently all year for Baltimore with 15 wins and 144 strikeouts over 172 1/3 innings.

The Orioles have already pushed back the rotation by a day since Zach Britton is joining it on Wednesday. That means Tillman's next scheduled start will come Monday to begin an important series against the Yankees from Camden Yards.

Chris Tillman looking for win 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2013) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman is looking for his 16th win Tuesday against the Indians.

If Tillman gets to 16 wins, he would be the club's first 16 game winner of the 21st century. The last Orioles pitcher to win at least 16 games was Mike Mussina in 1999, according to MASN. Tillman has been strong on the road, posting a 2.93 ERA in 12 road starts.

Tillman has a 3.61 ERA in 167 innings.


Chris Tillman strikes out eight in 15th win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2013) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman earned his 15th win of the season in his team's 3-2 victory over the Red Sox Thursday after giving up just two earned runs on six hits in seven innings while striking out eight and walking none.

It was the first win in five starts for Tillman, who is 15-4 during what's turned out to be an impressive follow-up to his strong 2012 performance. Tillman takes a 3.61 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 141:57 K:BB ratio into Tuesday's start against the Indians. With five or six potential starts remaining, Tillman has an outside shot at reaching 20 wins.
