Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman will start on opening day Monday, April 6.
Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has been a little bit better at home (3.72 ERA) in his career than on the road (4.28 ERA). In 14 career starts against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Orioles' opening day foe, Tillman has a 4.08 ERA and 4-6 record. Consider him a midrange option for FantasyScore lineups on April 6.

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman, who is likely to be the team's opening day starter, said he hasn't had contract extension talks with the team, but he would like to remain in Baltimore long term.
Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has a career ERA over 4.00 on the road, and he'll face the Tampa Bay Rays in Tampa on opening day. He also has an ERA over 4.00 in his career against the Rays. It all adds up to Tillman being a pretty mediocre option at FantasyScore in opening day contests.

The Baltimore Orioles and representatives for SP Chris Tillman are reportedly working on a contract extension that would keep him with the team beyond the 2017 season, although negotiations are not likely to continue once the regular season begins.
Fantasy Tip: Despite pitching in one of baseball's most hitter-friendly divisions, Tillman has gone 38-16 with a 3.42 ERA since joining Baltimore's starting rotation on a full-time basis in July 2012. He's likely to be available in the later rounds of universal fantasy drafts, due in part to his low K/9 rate last season (6.5).

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman has only allowed two stolen bases in 13 attempts since the start of the 2013 season. "When Buck came, I focused on it," Tillman said. "Before, I didn't really pay all that much attention to it. Just try to make the best pitch that I can and whatever happens with the runner happens with the runner. But once he put the video in front of us and the stats in front of us about runners advancing another 90 feet, as a pitcher that's everything."
Fantasy Tip: Tillman is a starting pitcher worth considering in the later rounds of your mixed league drafts, but he comes with plenty of concerns, including a low K/9 rate last year (6.5). He also pitches in one of the more hitter-friendly parks in the league at Camden Yards.
