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.

Orioles' Chris Tillman (back) improving, could pitch Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tillman was bumped up from Tuesday to Sunday with Bud Norris dealing with an illness, but the pitcher was scratched with health issues of his own, as he's dealing with back stiffness. However, it appears as if his back is improving, and he may be able to make his originally-scheduled start Tuesday.

Orioles RHP Mike Wright to make MLB debut, start Sunday


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."


Orioles RHP Chris Tillman (back) scratched from Sunday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman has had enough to worry about, what with four straight losses and 18 runs allowed in his last 23 2/3 innings pitched.

But now he must deal with back stiffness that has forced him out of his scheduled Sunday start, MASNSports.com has reported.

The team's Opening Day starter has just two quality starts in seven tries. He is averaging 10 hits and 4.4 walks per nine innings, which has translated into a 6.34 ERA, nearly double what he recorded last year.

With Jimenez moving up to Saturday, Chris Tillman will now take his turn on the rotation on Sunday.

Tillman gave up both runs in the fourth inning via an RBI double from Evan Longoria and an RBI single from James Loney.

He struck out seven in the loss.

Tillman's next start is set for Thursday in New York against the Yankees.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman took the loss Thursday, giving up seven earned runs on five hits and five walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 7-6 defeat against the Blue Jays.

Tillman (2-2) has alternated poor outings with excellent performances over his first four starts, and Thursday's dud was just the latest in the pattern. The Blue Jays were able to score three runs in each of the third and fourth innings before tacking on one more in the fifth, giving them all they needed to take the win.

Tillman owns a 7.58 ERA and 13:13 K:BB ratio in 19 innings. He's scheduled to face the White Sox Tuesday in his next start.


Orioles starter Chris Tillman allows one run in 5 1/3 IP for victory


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/2015) Orioles starter Chris Tillman (2-1) allowed one earned run on six hits and stuck out five in 5 1/3 innings Saturday to earn the win against the Red Sox.

The one run allowed came via Tillman's fielding error in the sixth inning.

Tillman rebounded from a poor start in his last outing.

"I wanted to get back out there. It felt like an eternity between starts," Tillman said. "After starts like that, it's not fun."

"I thought he had good stuff," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "I think he was challenged by things out of his control."

Tillman's next start is set for Thursday in Toronto.


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."


Orioles' Chris Tillman chased in third inning vs. Blue Jays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman couldn't make it out of the third inning in a loss Sunday, surrendering seven runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks in 2 2/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 10-7 defeat against the Blue Jays.

Tillman (1-1) delivered a solid performance in his debut but couldn't find his rhythm Sunday, as the Blue Jays were able to score runs in each of the three innings he worked. He served up home runs to a pair of players that entered Sunday's game with just six career homers combined (Dalton Pompey and Kevin Pillar).

Tillman will focus on rebounding Saturday against the Red Sox in Boston.


Chris Tillman wins Orioles opener


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Starting pitcher Chris Tillman went six and two thirds innings, allowing just four hits, as the Orioles beat the Rays 6-2 on Opening Day, Monday. 

Tillman allowed one run--on an Evan Longoria solo homer in the seventh--walked three and struck out four. He threw 95 pitches, 52 for strikes. Prior to the home run, only one Ray had reached scoring position in the game. 

"I thought it went well," Tillman said, per MASN Sports. "I started off a little shaky, but we were able to get back in it. Fastball command got better as I went. My off-speed pitches were a struggle all day, but we were able to make some really good pitches with the fastball to get through that."

Tillman's next start is scheduled to be at home on Sunday, against Toronto's Drew Hutchison.

Orioles' Miguel Gonzalez may get start in season-opening series


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/29/2015) When the Orioles open the season with a three-game series in Tampa Bay, manager Buck Showalter said Miguel Gonzalez will likely start one of the games, reports MLB.com.

“We’re leaning that way. It kind of slots him out the rest of the month where he should be," Showalter said. "Like I say, we’ve got a rare opportunity with playing in our division for as much as we do and the track record our starters have there in different venues against different teams and kind of take advantage of that.”

For his career, Gonzalez is 3-1 with a 2.64 ERA in five starts at Tropicana Field.

Showalter said earlier this spring that Wei-Yin Chen would probably pitch among those first three games as well as Chris Tillman, who's been widely speculated as the club’s Opening Day starter.
