Orioles | Chris Tillman inks one-year deal

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 10:26:54 -0800

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman avoided arbitration and signed a one-year, $6.225 million deal, plus incentives, on Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman had a pretty underwhelming season in 2015, going 11-11 with a 4.99 ERA and 1.39 WHIP, but he was a bit better as the season wore on, posting a 4.55 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and a respectable .239 opposing batting average following the All-Star break. Even so, he shouldn't be a draft day target.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has struggled lately, so FantasyScore players should consider running a stack of Tampa hitters against him.

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 17:00:14 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman allowed six runs on eight hits over three innings in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, Sept. 6, and he is 0-4 with a 15.50 ERA in five starts against the Blue Jays this season.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) can make a useful value play at FantasyScore against weaker opponents, but he is off limits against stronger lineups, especially Toronto's lineup.

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.
