Orioles | Chris Tillman faces Gray tonight

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 10:09:12 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman faces Oakland Athletics ace SP Sonny Gray in the series finale Monday, Aug. 17. Tillman is coming off a rough start where he allowed five runs in only 2 1/3 innings against the Seattle Mariners. Tillman struggled in the first half, but in four post-All Star break starts he has a 2.08 ERA with 18 strikeouts and a 2-0 record.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is coming off a bad start in the middle of a strong second-half resurgence against the light-hitting A's, who rank second to last in runs scored since the All-Star break. Tillman's start against the Mariners was his first since missing a turn due to an ankle injury, which could explain the hiccup. All reports suggest he is 100%, but it makes him a risk/reward start in FantasyScore tonight against A's ace Sonny Gray.

Orioles | Chris Tillman on track to start Monday

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 14:05:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (triceps) is still scheduled to start against the Oakland Athletics Monday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) was hit by a ball on his right triceps, but it clearly isn't a significant injury. He was rocked for five earned runs in his previous outing but had only allowed five combined over his previous six outings. Tillman stands a potential No. 2 starting pitcher at FantasyScore Monday.

Orioles | Chris Tillman hoping to return Sunday

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 16:47:04 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (ankle) said his bullpen session went well Wednesday, Aug. 5, and he will throw again Friday, Aug. 7. Tillman is targeting a return against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) was cruising before the injury with a 1.09 ERA over his last six starts. However, his FantasyScore price has caught up to his recent success, and the Angels are a difficult foe. Consider Tillman a high-risk, high-reward start in his first game back from the minor injury.

Orioles | Chris Tillman pushed back this weekend

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 14:40:59 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (ankle) won't make his next start until at least Sunday, Aug. 9, as the team continues to be cautious with his left ankle injury. He threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Aug. 5, and will take another work day before starting. SPs Kevin Gausman and Ubaldo Jimenez will face the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to start the series this weekend. Tillman has a 0.38 ERA in three starts since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) has been excellent of late and has been a strong option on FantasyScore. That should continue, since his ankle injury isn't expected to be serious. The Angels present a decent matchup since they've been struggling offensively during a recent losing streak. If Tillman is pushed back to early next week, it could be even better, with a road matchup at the Seattle Mariners looming.

Orioles | Chris Tillman throws Monday

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 16:16:15 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (ankle) threw from around 90 feet Monday, Aug. 3, and hopes to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) probably will not be able to make his next scheduled start, but it does not appear like he is dealing with a serious injury. Owners on FantasyScore should monitor his situation to see when he will be able to pitch again.

Orioles | Chris Tillman day-to-day

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:29:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (ankle) is still experiencing a sore left ankle that is being called a sprain, and he's taking it day-to-day. Tillman is unsure if he will make his next start Monday, Aug. 3. If he doesn't, he could start a day or two after.

Fantasy Tip: With the way Tillman ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has pitched lately, he should be owned in all leagues. At FantasyScore, he'll carry a bit more risk in his next start coming off his tweaked ankle, but he could still be plenty profitable in the right matchup.

Orioles | Chris Tillman tweaked ankle

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:48:54 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (ankle) turned his ankle covering first base during his start Wednesday, July 29, and he is receiving treatment.

Fantasy Tip: It'd be a shame for Tillman ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) owners if his next start is in jeopardy because of this. He tossed 8 2/3 scoreless innings over the Atlanta Braves last night and is 4-2 with just five earned runs allowed in 41 1/3 innings in his last six starts. Tillman should be owned in all leagues now and is a strong play on FantasyScore during this run.

Orioles | Chris Tillman good in interleague play

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 10:15:31 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman is 2-0 with a 3.41 ERA in 31 2/3 innings and has registered a quality start in his last five interleague starts since July of last year. He faces the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has allowed only five earned runs in his last five starts (32 2/3 innings) dating back to June 28. He's a very attractive second starter on FantasyScore tonight against the offensively challenged Braves.

Orioles | Chris Tillman dazzles

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 19:48:19 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman allowed one hit over eight shutout innings and struck out eight in a win over the Detroit Tigers Saturday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) still owns an ugly 4.96 ERA for the year, but he has thrown well lately, allowing just four runs over his last four starts and striking out 24. If you are going to take a chance on Tillman as a low-priced sleeper at FantasyScore, there is no better time.
