MLB Gambling Update: Baltimore's Tillman gets torched again

05.31.2017     09:58 AM     Printer Friendly


Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 4. Baltimore hosts Boston.

“Chris wasn’t very crisp and just didn’t pitch very well,” Showalter said. “Today, he just never seemed to take it to another level and find his way. A lot of times I can see in the first inning or two he's a pitch away and then he gets in step — like a lot of pitchers, not just him.

“Today, it was pretty obvious to me that he wasn't going to be able to find that step. He was really struggling to find tempo and a consistent release point. You look back through where he was trying to throw the ball. There weren't many pitches executed on his part. He knows that.”

MLB Handicapping: Red flags abound for Baltimore's Chris Tillman

05.30.2017     08:04 AM     View Original Blog
Remember last season when Baltimore's Chris Tillman mysteriously started throwing 93-94 mph and somehow entered June with a sub-3.00 ERA? By late season, Tillman's spike in velocity was gone and so was most of his effectiveness (5.44 ERA over L9 starts). He began 2017 on the DL with a shoulder injury and has been very hittable (30% line drive rate) since his return despite not allowing a home run over 20.1 innings. More importantly, Tillman's velocity continues to drop. He has managed to increase his groundball rate but there are simply too many indications that point towards even more struggles moving forward. Tillman has never been all that respected by the betting markets and if tonight's line move on the Yankees (-125 to -135) is any indication, bettors already appear wise to his diminishing stuff.
