Orioles | Chris Tillman improves to 14-2

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 15:05:18 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over seven innings during the Orioles 4-1 win over the New York Yankees Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman has been one of the biggest risers in fantasy value among starting pitchers thus far, as he sits with 14 wins, a 3.18 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP and 108 strikeouts through 127 1/3 innings. Wins are tough to predict or count on, but Tillman is nearly providing an ace return for fantasy owners.

Orioles | Chris Tillman fires another gem

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 18:18:41 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman allowed one run on four hits while walking three and striking out three over seven innings in a win over the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, July 16, and he has allowed three combined runs over 21 innings in his last three starts.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman has bounced back from his worst stretch of the year with arguably his best. He could very well remain a solid starter the rest of the way, but feel free to try to sell high on him.

Orioles | Chris Tillman notches 12th victory

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 14:42:40 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman was effectively wild against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday, July 10, earning his 11th win in his last 12 decisions despite issuing a season-high five free passes. Tillman also allowed only one run on three hits while striking out five in seven frames.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to find fault in a pitcher with a 12-2 record and on pace for the second-most strikeouts of his career, but the walks are starting to become a concern (12 over his last four starts spanning 23 2/3 innings). With that said, he is tied with J.A. Happ for second place in the AL in wins and stands a great chance of reaching 20 at his current pace. Tillman should draw the struggling Tampa Bay Rays out of the gate to begin the second half and is a recommended fantasy start.

Orioles | Chris Tillman cruises to 11th win

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 22:28:22 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman allowed one run on five hits over seven innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday, July 5. He walked two and struck out a pair.

Fantasy Tip: After struggling in his previous three starts -- 14 runs allowed in 14 2/3 innings, moving his season ERA from 2.87 to 3.71 -- Tillman was in control against the Dodgers and joined Chris Sale (14) and J.A. Happ (11) as the AL's only 11-game winners. He's set to face the Angels before the All-Star break. Make sure Tillman is active for that matchup.

Fantasy Tip: It was only Tillman's second loss of the season and his record is still a robust 10-2. Pitchers will have bad outings, and don't let this one scare you. Keep playing Tillman in all formats.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman had his worst outing of the season, but he is still 10-1 with a 3.52 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. Tillman remains a tremendous fantasy option across the board and in DFS play, especially due to his 88 strikeouts over 94 2/3 innings.

Orioles | Chris Tillman hurls gem Wednesday

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 18:57:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (8-1) allowed eight hits and struck out nine batters over 7 1/3 scoreless innings in a victory over the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, June 8. It was his seventh consecutive victory.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman is 6-0 at home and unbeaten in his last 10 starts dating back to April 14. Although his next scheduled start will come against the hot-hitting Boston Red Sox Tuesday, June 14, he should be viewed as a solid pitching option in all fantasy formats.

Orioles | No quality start for Chris Tillman

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 19:39:26 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman served up three home runs and he did not record a quality start Friday, June 3, against the New York Yankees. He allowed eight hits and five runs on 109 pitches, and over the past two starts he has given up 12 hits in 11 2/3 innings with nine runs and six homers.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman had been pitching ace-like, but he has certainly hit a bump in the road over the past two outings. Despite the rocky patch he remains a must-start fantasy option.

Orioles | Chris Tillman has been very efficient

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:50:42 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman had his seventh straight quality start against the Houston Astros Tuesday, May 24, giving up two runs and three hits in seven innings. He has allowed 10 runs over 46 1/3 innings in his streak of quality starts, and his ERA remains at 2.61. He had won each of his last five starts before Tuesday, and opponents were hitting just .191 against him in his last six starts.

Fantasy Tip: After a rough 2015 season, Tillman has really turned things around this year with a 6-1 record, 2.61 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and a career-high 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings. It's time he deserved a look in mixed leagues after his strong start.
