Tillman Thursday in Norfolk
Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman, who was optioned back to Triple-A Norfolk yesterday, will start tomorrow for the Tides.
Pitching coach Rick Kranitz said he wasn’t sure how long Tillman’s outing will be given that he hasn’t pitched in a game since June 14. Tillman also had a stomach bug on Sunday –the last day of the O’s West Coast trip — and didn’t throw at all.
Kranitz said they will probably evaulate Tillman on an inning-by-inning basis down in Norfolk, but guessed he’d probably throw around 80 pitches.
