His change-up was working well. He gave up one monster home run off of the left field scoreboard to lead off the 4th inning. He didn't lose his composure, he came right back to retire the next 3 batters in order to finish that inning. He was throwing more strikes in the 5th inning (6 pitches, 4 for strikes) when his start was cut short by the rain. :( The Tides broadcast did not have a radar gun.

I didn't watch the game, but Tillman's numbers indicate that he was bad last night. He gave up 4 solo home runs, walked three batters, and of the 98 pitches that he threw in the 6 innings that he pitched, only 56 of them were for strikes.

The bullpen... you mean because he has terrible control, doesn't miss bats, and is a fly ball pitcher.

Bowie should be his next move, he isn't a ML pitcher.

Guess you've never heard the 3000 stories of the mediocre starter going to the pen, gaining 4 mph on his fastball, ditching a weak secondary pitch or two, simplifying his delivery, and ending up with a 12-year major league career.

It happens to a lot of failed starters. Even to Mariano Rivera.

Tillman was rocked for the second consecutive outing at AAA-Norfolk. He's going in the opposite direction that Zach Britton is going.
