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.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should note the significant difference in Tillman's ERA split. This illustrates how finicky the win stat can be, too. Start Tillman with confidence when he is pitching at home.
