Injury-Plagued Tillman Remains Orioles' Best Starter
The same shoulder forced Tillman to miss a start Aug. 17. His last start was pushed back to Aug. 20 in order to give him eight days' rest.
It didn't do him any good, as BrooksBaseball.net (h/t the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo A. Encina) indicated his four-seam fastball averaged 91.52 miles per hour—his lowest mark of the season—and he allowed six earned runs on six hits while walking five in just two innings.
However, Tillman revealed after the difficult start that there were no problems with the shoulder.
It was an uncharacteristic start from him, though, as Tillman has been the best starting arm in an Orioles rotation that has not been good this season.
At 15-5 with a 3.76 ERA, Tillman was the only Baltimore pitcher prior to his injury with more than 10 starts who has more than five wins with an ERA lower than 4.11.
