by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/28/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman had his best stuff against the Indians on Sunday.

Orioles, Indians rained out Saturday, split DH Sunday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) The Indians' Saturday game at the Orioles was rained out. It will be rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday. 

Chris Tillman, Saturday's scheduled starter, will start the second game, and Sunday's originally scheduled starter Ubaldo Jimenez will stay on schedule for the Orioles, starting the afternoon game. 

For the Indians, Trevor Bauer will stay on schedule and start the 1:35 game, as originally planned. 26th man Toru Murata will start the nightcap, making his MLB debut. Cody Anderson, Saturday's scheduled Indians starter, will start Monday, the team announced. 


Orioles SP Chris Tillman serves up six runs in no-decision Sunday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/21/2015) Steaked to an early 7-0 lead, Orioles starter Chris Tillman gave the game right back to the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon. The right-hander allowed six runs in the second inning, as he was only able to get one out in the frame before being lifted. 

Among those six runs in that fateful second inning, Tillman gave up a three-run home run to Ezequiel Carrera, and a solo shot to Kevin Pillar. Tillman was able to settle for a no-decision, as the Orioles won the 13-9 slugfest late in the game.

"He's up. Pitch selection was fine, changeup up, out over the plate where you don't want to get it for the three-run homer [by Carrera] and it snowballed a bit," manager Buck Showalter said, per MLB.com. "He's got to get back into attack mode. He's been pitching a lot better until today."

The rough outing ballooned Tillman's ERA from 5.58 to 6.22. He'll look to have a rebound effort in his next start, scheduled for a home matchup with the Indians on Saturday.

He now has an ERA of 5.58 and is 5-7 this season. 

Tillman’s next start is projected for Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Orioles' Chris Tillman snaps six-game losing streak


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) Orioles starter Chris Tillman earned a win over Cleveland on Friday, snapping a streak of six straight losing decisions. 

Tillman moved to 3-7 and earned his first win since April 18. He gave up two runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings, walking three and striking out three.

"He's got some finish to his fastball," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "He angles the ball real well. Just thought he got it past our barrels enough."

Tillman's next start is Thursday, against Boston.  


Orioles' Chris Tillman chased in fifth inning of loss Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman was handed a loss on Sunday, allowing six runs (five earned) on nine hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 9-5 defeat against the Rays.

Tillman (2-7) surrendered an RBI single in the second inning but held a 2-1 lead heading into the fifth, where he gave up four runs on another RBI single and a three-run homer. It's the fourth time in 10 starts that he has failed to make it through five innings.

"Felt good," Tillman said to MASNSports.com. "Threw a lot of good fastballs. Curveball came as I went. Changeup was good. Cutter, didn't throw it much. I left some pitches out over that they were able to do some damage on. Today was about (a lack of) damage control.

"Just need to be consistent with all my pitches. One start, the changeup is good. One start, the fastball is good. Being able to bring all that together and be consistent in the strike zone early and late. When you get guys on base, you have to limit the damage."

Tillman owns a 5.94 ERA and 41:28 K:BB ratio in 53 innings. He's slated to face the Indians in Cleveland on Friday.


Orioles shut door on long-term deal with SP Chris Tillman


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) The window might be shut tight permanently on any possibility that the Orioles and starting pitcher Chris Tillman come to a long-term agreement, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman is reporting.

The two sides never came close to hammering out a contract. And Tillman seems to be wiping out any opportunity with his performance on the mound. He opened the season as the ace but hasn't pitched like one.

Tillman is 2-6 with a 5.59 ERA and has walked 25 in 48 1/3 innings. He has lost his last five decisions, though his last start against Houston was arguably his best of the year.


Orioles' Chris Tillman loses fifth straight decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Orioles starter Chris Tillman lost his fifth straight decision to Houston on Tuesday, dropping to 1-6 on the year. 

Tillman gave up two runs on five hits over seven innings. It's his second loss during the streak in which he's given up just two earned runs in seven innings. 

"It's a step in the right direction for a guy we know is capable of pitching at a good level," manager Buck Showalter said. "We obviously haven't been giving our pitchers much margin for error, but he gave us a real good chance to win tonight. Probably even a little bit better than that."

Tillman struck out five and walked three. His next start is Sunday, against Tampa Bay. 


Rain limits Orioles' Tillman to 3 innings, Hunter earns win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman was only able to go three innings due to a two-hour rain delay during Baltimore's 5-4 win over the Mariners. 

Tillman gave up one earned run in the second inning. However, he walked three batters and allowed one hit. He struck out two during his time in the game. Tillman has struggled of late as he's now allowed 19 earned runs in his past 26 2/3 innings. 

Though he's dealing with a sore back, Tillman said it felt fine after the game, according to MASN Sports. A decision was made an hour into the delay that he wouldn't return

Tillman has an ERA of 6.10 for the season.

The rain delay forced the Orioles to use a total of seven pitchers. Tommy Hunter pitched the eighth inning and got into a bit of a jam by surrendering two hits and a walk. However, he got out of the trouble and improved to 2-1 for the season with the win. 

For Tillman, his next start is projected for May 26 against the Astros.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) Orioles right-hander Mike Wright will make his Major League debut and start on Sunday against the Angels. Wright was called up on from Triple-A on Wednesday, but has not made an appearance for the Orioles.

He made six starts for Norfolk this season, going 3-0 with a 2.64 ERA and a 30:9 K:BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings. He will get the start on Sunday in favor of Bud Norris (illness) and Chris Tillman (back) who each scratched from their scheduled starts.

The Orioles selected Wright in the third round of the 2011 amateur draft.

"He's another one of those guys we think highly of", manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNSports.com. "He's physically ready to go and hopefully he'll be able to present himself well against a good club. That's the team with the best record in the American League last year that we're facing. They're a good club. Very fundamentally sound."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Not starting Mookie Betts Saturday no reflection of recent slump


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/2015) Mookie Betts' recent 0-for-7 slide isn't the reason Red Sox manager John Farrell didn't start him Saturday against the Orioles, reports WEEI.com.

With the O's starting right-hander Chris Tillman, who's considered tough with a heavy sinker, Farrell wants to get utility-man Brock Holt some at-bats. 

"A way to get Brock in the lineup," Farrell said. "He has swung the bat well in limited looks against Tillman and our goal, and my personal goal, is to get Brock [in the lineup] and keep him in the mix as much as possible."


Duquette: Orioles have 'tabled' contract talks with Chris Tillman


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Orioles executive vice president Dan Duqutte confirmed during a radio interview Sunday night the team has "tabled" contract talks with starting pitcher Chris Tillman, who won't be a free agent until after the 2017 season. 

Duquette said the team prefers not to engage in contract talks during the season, but added there is always the opportunity they could resume negotiations. Although, Duquette said if that does happen, he won't talk about it.

"Well, we had a good discussion with Chris about his contract for this season," Duquette said, per MASNsports.com. "He got a nice raise based on the work that he did and we have a good idea about what his long-term aspirations are, so I thought that was real helpful. We are real glad to have Chris out there pitching for us.

"Since Chris has come back up to the big leagues in the second half of 2012, he's been one of the more dependable pitchers in the American League. He's done a nice job for us. He's quietly become a solid, dependable starting pitcher and a leader on our ballclub."
