Tillman was assigned to minor league camp Saturday. Tillman spent time at High-A and Double-A in 2015, and he'll likely begin the season at either Double-A or Triple-A. The 27-year-old posted a cumulative 2.76 ERA with a 1.142 WHIP across 48.1 innings.
Tillman agreed to a minor league contract with the Brewers on Monday that included an invite to spring training. Tillman pitched between the High-A and Double-A affiliates of the Dodgers organization in 2015, posting a 2.76 ERA in 58.2 combined innings of work. The former second-round draft pick has a history of control issues, but did improve some to put up a 2.61 BB/9 last season, the lowest since his second year of professional baseball. He also posted a 10.43 K/9 last season, making him an intriguing option going forward for the rebuilding Brewers.
The Los Angeles Angels made their first cuts of the spring and shipped the following players to their minor-league camp: Luis Jimenez (Triple-A Salt Lake), Johnny Hellweg, Ariel Pena (Double-A Arkansas), Fabio Martinez (Class A Inland Empire), Matt Shoemaker, Daniel Tillman, Matt Meyer, Robinzon Diaz and Doug Deeds.
