    • Manager Buck Showalter said that Tillman is still an option to rejoin the rotation, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. "We're trying to put our best foot forward every day, and Chris could be that," Showalter said. "I would like to get him a start or some starts before the year is over, and I think that will present itself," The right-hander has pitched in just two games since being moved to the bullpen Sept. 7. Tillman has lost most, if not all, of his fantasy value this year, just a campaign removed from tying a career high with 16 wins. Another start or two would make him a viable punt play in daily leagues, though.

    • Orioles' Chris Tillman: Moves to bullpen
      By RotoWire Staff

      Tillman will transition to the bullpen while Gabriel Ynoa takes his place during Saturday's affair in Cleveland, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Tillman has been hit pretty hard during his last three outings, including Sunday's contest against Toronto, during which the right-hander was only able to throw four innings of action. Moving forward, Tillman will likely settle back into a middle relief role like the one he occupied in mid-August while attempting to fix some mechanical issues. A spot start or return to the rotation shouldn't be ruled out, but the 29-year-old hasn't found any success on the mound this season.

    • Tillman allowed three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two batters through four innings during Sunday's win over Toronto. He didn't factor into the decision. It's been a year-long struggle for Tillman, and he's now up to a 7.85 ERA, 1.92 WHIP for the season. His 6.2 K/9 isn't moving the fantasy needle, either. The 29-year-old righty could be worth a look in soft matchups, but even then, expectations should remain in check. Tillman lines up to make his next start against Cleveland at Progressive Field.

    • Tillman allowed four runs on four hits and six walks across across 5.1 innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Angels. He struck out two. Tillman was his own worst enemy in this one, throwing fewer than 50 percent of his pitches for strikes while setting a season high in free passes. He had worked in relief in each of his previous two outings, but Sunday's unconvincing performance did little to stake his claim to a renewed spot in the rotation. Tillman is tentatively scheduled to face the Red Sox on Saturday, but it remains to be seen if he will shift back to the bullpen in the near future.

    • Orioles' Chris Tillman: Named Sunday's starter
      By RotoWire Staff

      Tillman will start Sunday against the Angels, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Manager Buck Showalter held off on naming a starter for Sunday until after Saturday's game, as he couldn't rule out Tillman being needed in relief in the first two games of the series. It's now official, but Tillman should be avoided in mixed leagues -- and probably all formats -- given his immense struggles as a starter this year. He figures to transition back to the bullpen next week.
