Baltimore Orioles: Projecting Chris Tillman’s Production in 2017

There’s no doubt that Orioles ace Chris Tillman had a strong 2016, going 16-6 with a 3.77 ERA. The question is, what can we expect from him in 2017? Chris Tillman spent the first four seasons of his career bouncing around between AAA and the Major League squad. However, he has been an everyday starer since 2013. Since the […] Baltimore Orioles: Projecting Chris Tillman’s Production in 2017 - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Orioles injury news: Chris Tillman, Zach Britton “progressing as hoped”

Orioles injury news: Chris Tillman, Zach Britton “progressing as hoped”

Chris Tillman is back to playing catch. Zach Britton isn’t, yet. And J.J. Hardy got an injection in his back but the Orioles are saying this was always part of the plan. The first week of spring training was not good to the Orioles with injuries. Chris Tillman, J.J. Hardy, and Zach Britton were all on the shelf either from the moment they reported or before they got into any action. For now, at least, it appears that all of those players are on the mend. Following Thursday’s intrasquad game in which the Orioles beat the Orioles, manager Buck Showalter told Orioles reporters that all was...

Dylan Bundy is poised to make big strides for the Orioles this season

Dylan Bundy is poised to make big strides for the Orioles this season

A deeper look into Dylan Bundy’s pitching shows that he could be a candidate for a strong breakout in 2017. Good thing, too - the Orioles need him. For most of offseason, the Orioles had been targeted as possible destinations for all of the vagabonding starters still left on the market, and justifiably so. Even before Chris Tillman abruptly showed up to camp in need of a PRP shot in his throwing arm, the O’s bottled up their need for an additional starting pitcher or two without talking to a therapist, or you know, signing anyone of note. To Dan Duquette’s credit, he truly believes...

Wednesday’s O’s Links: Britton’s Oblique Flares Up, Bundy Turns Ace?

As intrasquad games continue in preparation for the first Spring Training game very shortly, it seems like we get more bad news out of Sarasota every day. First it was Chris Tillman, then it was J.J. Hardy, and now…ugh. Let’s hit the links. Britton Held Out of Intrasquad Game Due to Oblique Issue As The Sun’s Eduardo Encina reports, Zach Britton was held out of the first two instrasquad games because he is showing signs of an oblique injury. Ah, the dreaded oblique. For now, it’s “purely precautionary,” and I’m […] The post Wednesday’s O’s Links: Britton’s Oblique Flares...

The Rundown: Crowded Outfield in Sarasota

Welcome back to “The Rundown.” Over the course of the season, we will try to tackle the most important topics surrounding the Orioles on a weekly basis. Spring Training is in full force with the Grapefruit League schedule starting on Friday, so hopefully many of these questions will be answered over the next month.   A Very Crowded Outfield Even with the injury to staff ace Chris Tillman, the starting pitching may not be the top storyline to follow this spring. Between the subtle shots between Adam Jones and Dan […] The post The Rundown: Crowded Outfield in Sarasota appeared first on...

Health issues, the catching situation and Clevenger interest - School of Roch

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles aren't in panic mode over the shoulder discomfort, or whatever we're calling it, that could force No. 1 starter Chris Tillman on the disabled list. They're continuing to breathe normally through a series of tests administered to shortstop J.J. Hardy's back, the spasms keeping him...

Baltimore Orioles: Kevin Gausman wants to start on Opening Day

After the Baltimore Orioles announced Chris Tillman wasn’t going to start on Opening Day, it leaves Kevin Gausman as the potential favorite.

Hardy’s Back Sidelines Him Again, Brach Wins Arbitration

The Baltimore Orioles are having a rough start to Spring Training. The injuries are starting to add up and so is the payroll. Just days after getting the news that Chris Tillman would be out for at least three weeks with a shoulder issue, we learned that shortstop J.J. Hardy will be sidelined with back spasms. It’s similar to the back problems he has had in the past, but he said these are lasting longer, per Roch Kubatko. Hardy has dealt with similar spasms in past. These lasting longer. #orioles […] The post Hardy’s Back Sidelines Him Again, Brach Wins Arbitration appeared first on...

Orioles spring training news: J.J. Hardy has a sore back, getting CT scan

Chris Tillman wasn’t the only Orioles player to show up at spring training not 100%. J.J. Hardy is ailing as well. One Orioles player who has yet to appear in any spring training pictures is J.J. Hardy. In standard fashion, the reporters in Sarasota at first offered benign explanations for this: Hardy was sick. No big deal. Except it turns out today that Hardy has a sore lower back, had an MRI yesterday, and is getting a CT scan today, according to The Baltimore Sun’s Peter Schmuck. The results of those tests will give a better idea of how serious a problem Hardy is suffering, but in...

FanPost Friday: What’s your biggest Orioles worry right now?

Was the news about Chris Tillman’s shoulder enough to dent your spring training optimism? Or is some other Orioles issue worrying you? Spring training is the time for optimism for baseball fans, but there’s always the other side of that coin. That’s especially true for Orioles fans, since the only big story out of Sarasota so far is that Chris Tillman will not be ready to pitch on Opening Day. The Orioles are not the only team dealing with this. Their MASN neighbors could miss Max Scherzer for Opening Day due to a stress fracture in a finger that still hasn’t healed fully despite an...
