Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter announced on Monday that RHP Chris Tillman will be his Opening Day starter against the Boston Red Sox on March 31st at Camden Yards.
Former Oriole and current MLB Network analyst Bill Ripken joined the Sports Rehab with Glenn Younes and Bob Haynie to preview the upcoming 2014 campaign.
Chris Tillman pitched two scoreless innings in an impressive spring training debut, helping the Baltimore Orioles open their exhibition schedule with a 4-2 victory over Erik Bedard and the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday.
Buck’s Birds can match any lineup in baseball 1 through 9 when it comes to thunder in the lumber and they’re coming off the best fielding percentage season in baseball history. That’s all good but in the end this team will seal it’s fate with starting pitching.
Starting pitching is going to have to be a positive factor for the Birds if they want to be a force in the AL East.
It seemed like yesterday when fans and sports talk radio hosts (me included) were talking about the lack of off-season moves by the Baltimore Orioles.
Orioles agree with Ubaldo Jimenez; reports indicate that the deal is for four years and $50 million.
In 2013, Chris Tillman finally fulfilled the promise the Baltimore Orioles believed he had. Tillman rewarded the Orioles’ patience by winning 16 games and becoming an All-Star.
The biggest question heading into camp is who will handle the job of closer, an opening created by Executive Vice President Dan Duquette’s decision to trade Jim Johnson to Oakland rather than pay the right-hander top dollar as the reigning AL saves leader.
We all know that the Orioles have been relatively quiet with the big moves since the 2013 season came to an end and that has not gone over well with fans and media alike.
Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter joined Ed & Steve to talk about the upcoming off-season and the Orioles plans to have a better performance next season.
A Tuesday night, 3-2, 10-inning defeat to the Blue Jays, their sixth-straight loss, mathematically eliminated the Birds from postseason competition.
