Orioles starting pitcher, Chris Tillman, joins The Scott Garceau Show with Jeremy Conn to discuss, not only his start to the season, but the teams start as well.
Chris tells us what it was like to head home to pitch in front of his friends and family last week when he made his first start in Anaheim. With Miguel Gonzalez going on the DL with a blister, Chris talks to the guys about that injury and how hard it is to get a feel on the ball.
With MLB Network saying Tillman’s curve ball having the biggest break in the majors, Chris tells us what its like and when he started throwing the pitch. Off the field the guys like to have fun in the club house, whether its wrestling with Tommy Hunter, or ping-pong or even pool, Chris Tillman talks about life in the club house.
LISTEN TO THE FULL INTERVIEW:
Tonight’s starter (05-09-13) is former Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, Tillman talks about what he meant to him as a teammate when he was here. Chris also reflects on his first start which came against the Kansas City Royals. Following J.A. Happ taking a liner off his head, Chris gives us his take on the situation, and how it gives pitchers nightmares about liners up the middle. Being able to watch Manny Machado play everyday, Chris thinks he’s the real deal and loves watching him play defense and make strong throws against the diamond.
