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.

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.

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.

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.
