Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman has a .278 ERA pitching at Camden Yards this season, as opposed to a 4.68 ERA on the road. However, Tillman has a 6-0 record on the road, and he is 2-5 at home.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should note the significant difference in Tillman's ERA split. This illustrates how finicky the win stat can be, too. Start Tillman with confidence when he is pitching at home.

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman will start against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, Aug. 8, manager Buck Showalter confirmed.
Fantasy Tip: Tillman's last start was solid, and he wasn't that bad in July, all things considered. The Cardinals have struggled to score runs this year, and Tillman has been leaps and bounds better at home this year. He's a good candidate to be in your lineup for his next start.

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman was unable to retire a batter in the second inning Thursday, June 5. Nine of 11 batters Tillman faced reached base and the Orioles were down 5-0 when he left the game. It was the second time in Tillman's last four starts he has been chased from the game without recording an out in the second inning.
Fantasy Tip: Tillman put together an excellent stretch from July 2012 to the end of the 2013 season, but has three horrible starts in his last four outings. Consider benching Tillman until he turns it around in deep mixed and AL-only formats.
