Tonight the Orioles' #1 starting pitching prospect Chris Tillman debuts against the Royals. He joins fellow rookie starters Brad Bergesen, David Hernandez, and Jason Berken in the rotation hopefully through the end of this season and beyond. Like Gandalf, he will lead the charge that will eventually wipe out the evil armies of the AL East with some nasty curveballs and 94 MPH heat.
Here are his AAA stats:
18 games started, 8-6 (W-L), 2.70 ERA, 96.2 IP (5.1 Innings/start), 99 Ks, 22 BBs, 1.15 WHIP.
Erik Bedard Erik Shmedard. Gimme Tillman, Jones and George Sherill any day. Hail MacPhail!
