2014 Chris Tillman Today


Il BuonO

Recommended Posts

Chris was around the plate most of the day. I saw a stat, somebody else throw it up here if you have it, that said he was 70% strikes. He didn't give up a walk until his final frame. Nothing to complain about there. The times he gave up the hits were when he was behind, but overall he was ok. Nothing spectacular, I'm sure he'd like to have gone deeper.

The Red Sox sure did nothing to help, fouling off a number of good pitches he made. Pedroia(big shock) was particularly troublesome. But as he has found a way to do in the past, he pitched himself out of trouble nad minimized the damage.

I'll take it.

I'll take it, too.

Being 1-0 instead of 0-1 makes this day off A WHOLE LOT EASIER TO STOMACH.

He threw 71 strikes in 104 pitches which is 68.3%. By comparison, Tillman finished the 2013 season with a 64.0% strike rate and is at 62.4% for his career.

36.6% of the pitches he threw were fouled off. He is 30.3% for his career, 30.9% in 2013, and the MLB average during Tillman's major league career is 27.0%. That supports what was already pretty evident that his high pitch count was in part driven by the Red Sox' ability to foul off pitches.

Red Sox are good at driving up pitch counts no doubt.

I think Tillman needs to get better at getting some weak contact in order to keep his pitch count down. Using off speed to keep hitters off balance for instance. This is what could take him to the next level.

    • Just one add on IP.  Just looked, Kirby only pitched 67 innings last season, over 15 starts.  Seems likely limited, he missed a month due to a shoulder injury in 2021?  I'd see this as a similar use case as GRod.  He's at 152 IP this year.
    • Sorry, Denoyer wasn't part of that 5, but in my mind he was. The top 4, plus Denoyer and Mav is what I meant
    • He pitched 103 last year.  So an ideal season would have him at 125-140 this year.  Understand he didn't get there, but wouldn't you like to try to get 150 out of him next year so he's still there for stretch run/postseason assuming that's needed?  How do you make that feasible?
    • Pitchers to cut/leavingFA Anthony Castro Chris Ellis - 60 Day IL Logan Gillaspie Louis Head Jordan Lyles Jake Reed Beau Susler Chris Vallimont Spenser Watkins Cathers, IF Cut/LeavingFA Robinson Chirinos Cam Gallagher Tyler Nevin  Rougned Odor Jesus Aguilar I am going to give a spot to Diaz, its AAA Depth and we can always cut him after ST. With Means coming of the 60 Day, I think that puts us at 12 Open Spots I'm probably only protecting 6 MILB guys, so I would go into my offseason with 6 open spots and start crushing the Waiver Wire (the 5 listed in the original post plus Maverick (I know its slim, but we really have almost no catching depth in the milb and we have to protect it even if its a 1% chance hes selected in the Rule V) There's a part of me that wants to keep a couple of the pitchers listed above, but I believe many would pass through waivers and those that don't can easily be replaced on the waiver wire. That's probably where we could find some more catcher depth too, but I'd use most of those spots on more waiver wire pitching like last year.      
    • This is a huge winter for Mateo.  he should have confidence enough to put in the work to get better for next year.  The Orioles gave him a chance.  He took it.   Now put in the work Mr. Mateo.
    • Well, if you miss on 4th down, you assume they get it at the 2.  The idea that they got it on the 20 changes everything. I don’t mind the decision, after reading more and hearing more explanations.  I still think he should have taken the points but ultimately, I think at best they go into OT if they took the points and more than likely lose in regular time.
    • I mean, I can see being upset that they didn’t play well and blew the playoff chance.  I just don’t get why it matters that it was to division teams.  I’m more upset that they lost to Detroit and Oakland, teams that were far inferior.
