Orioles | Chris Tillman ties career high

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 22:43:15 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman allowed just two hits and two walks over 6 2/3 scoreless innings while tying a career high with nine strikeouts Wednesday, April 27, against the Tampa Bay Rays in a win.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman has back-to-back quality starts after failing to record one in his first three outings. He has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in all AL-only leagues and deeper mixed play, and he is a solid DFS value while running hot. He is 2-0 with a 1.53 ERA in three outings against AL East opponents.

Orioles | Chris Tillman to start Saturday

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 21:36:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman worked just two innings in a rain-shortened start Monday, April 4, against the Minnesota Twins, and he will return to pitch Saturday, April 9, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: The short outing was a tough blow for fantasy owners, but at he logged five strikeouts for six of his outs before departing. He was 1-3 with a 4.79 ERA in six outings against the Rays in 2015, but he did post 31 strikeouts over 35 2/3 innings with a solid .240 opponent batting average.

Orioles | Chris Tillman tabbed for opener

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 07:10:40 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman was named the opening day starter Monday, March 28.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman will take on the Minnesota Twins April 4. He hasn't been sharp this spring with a 9.31 ERA and seven walks in 9 2/3 innings. He'll be a late-round grab in mixed leagues.

Orioles | Chris Tillman falters again

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 15:05:38 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman allowed five earned runs on three walks and six hits in spring action Friday, March 25, and he also hit a batter. Tillman has a 9.31 ERA in 9 2/3 innings in the Grapefruit League.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman came into this season as a very mediocre pitcher in the major leagues, and his performance this spring surely took him off the radar of anyone that was considering him in deep mixed leagues as rotation depth. Look elsewhere.

Orioles | Chris Tillman tests hip

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 16:04:49 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (hip) tested his injured hip in Grapefruit League action Tuesday, March 15, and allowed two earned runs on five hits while walking three and striking out one in 1 2/3 innings versus the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman should have enough time to get ready for the start of the regular season. He's been consistently mediocre throughout his career especially in the strikeout department, making him bench material in deep mixed leagues, at best.

Orioles | Chris Tillman to pitch Tuesday

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 07:45:04 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (hip) will throw a bullpen session Sunday, March 13, and is expected to make his Grapefruit League debut against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, March 15. He threw two scoreless innings in a "B" game against the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman is coming off a disappointing 2015 campaign where he went 11-11 with a 4.99 ERA and 1.39 WHIP. Despite being bothered recently by a strained right hip flexor, he remains in the running to serve as the O's starter in the season opener. However, he's an average starter who shouldn't be viewed as anything more than rotation depth for deep mixed leagues.

Orioles | Chris Tillman slated to start Thursday

Sun, 06 Mar 2016 11:29:11 -0800

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (hip) is scheduled to throw a live batting practice session on Monday, March 7, and will make his Grapefruit League debut on Thursday, March 10, if all goes well.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman is the favorite to start Opening Day for the Orioles. The 27-year-old was given a cortisone injection last week and is coming off a rough 2015 campaign, going 11-11 with a 4.99 ERA. Tillman should fare better this year if he can stay healthy, but that is hardly a given considering he is already dealing with pain. Tillman is safe to leave on the waiver wire for now.

Orioles | Chris Tillman has good session

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 10:19:45 -0800

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (hip) had a bullpen session Friday, March 4, and it went well. Tillman said he feels "good" and will throw a live batting practice session on Monday, March 7.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman might be feeling good but it's hard to argue that he's trending down after his disappointing campaign a year ago. In 2015, the seven-year veteran finished 11-11 with a 4.99 ERA and 1.39 WHIP. He doesn't even rack up many strikeouts either. Owners can do much better than Tillman when rounding out their rotation on draft day.

Orioles | Chris Tillman receives injection

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 19:04:03 -0800

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (hip) received a cortisone injection for his strained right hip flexor and he feels strong enough to make his first Grapefruit League spring start next week.

Fantasy Tip: The Orioles know what Tillman is capable of doing, so there is likely no rush to get him to the mound and risk any setbacks or further damage.
