Many have eluded something is wrong physically and maybe they are right....

What say you?

We have nobody to replace him (and please don't say Gausman).

He pitched a great game last time out.

And his day today might not wind up any worse than Max Scherzer's today or Justin Verlander's yesterday, just to name a few.

If you thought he was a real ace, then yeah you should be worried. But if you think he's a solid #2/#3 pitcher, then I wouldn't be too worried. Hes a solid but not great pitcher, and those types have off days occasionally.

He has had bad first innings in quite a few starts this year and Palmer just said "it's so obvious he has nothing this game". I feel like these outings are much more frequent this year.

Probably got overextended during the last start. Buck might need to keep a close eye on Chris's pitch counts.

This. Tillman had a couple of bad outing after a 50 pitch inning in his first game v. the Pirates, and another here after 117 pitches in his last start. I tend to think two things.

1) The pirates have probably figured out Tillman

2) He's struggling after outings most pitchers struggle after with extended outings or innings. Throwing 49 pitches in an inning can be really really bad for a pitchers arm.

Maybe its a perfect time to get an extra day of rest.

I agree with those who say this is an overreaction and I too would point to his injury as probable cause.

However, I think at minimum we might be looking at a Justin Masterson clone: someone that can be phenomenal when on, but less than mediocre more often than not.

You agree it's an overreaction but he might be injured or not as good as we thought? Okay, got it:) ha!
