Did he have a rehab start? Seems awfully risky to throw him back into the rotation in the middle of a pennant race. Hopefully he is on a short leash and the bullpen is rested and ready if it doesn't go well.

You know, and maybe, he comes out blazing, like the pitcher that went 14-2 in the first part of the season?

I imagine that Worley or Wilson will be on call, if Tilly doesn't look like he's feeling good.

He hasn't thrown a pitch since August 20th when he only went 2 innings. That'll have been 3 weeks ago.

I doubt we can expect much. And I'm actually worried that he'll: be rusty. And rusty Tillman is a mess. Or perhaps worse: he rushed himself back. Players do it all the time.

I'd prefer a rehab start...but I get that we're in a predicament here. But I suppose if it's Tillman or Miley...you do Tillman every time. Especially against Detroit. Miley's 12 H/9 while w/ the O's is sure to increase if he pitched against Detroit in Detroit.

How can they do that? Aren't all the minor league seasons over?

I don't think a sim game really serves the same function as a rehab start. It's much less competitive.

Better than nothing. I really don't like the idea of throwing an injured player directly back into the rotation during a pennant race. Maybe he did a couple of innings that we don't know about?

    • This is an Orioles Hangout! It’s important, because it’s the dreaded MFY. The Evil Empire. It’s the #$@!*&@^*! Yankees. All wins are extra glorious, and the beer tastes colder against the pin-stripers and losses are always a wee bit more bitter. Rich against poor, good against evil, and every battle is a chance to make the world a better place.
    • Back to Gunnar Henderson the incredible superstar 22 year-old baseball player, saw this interesting article about short stop rankings. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/40369915/mlb-shortstop-draft-bobby-witt-jr-gunnar-henderson-corey-seager-no-1-pick
    • I disagree about the Flaherty and Fujinama "acquisitions" (and I use that term VERY LOOSELY) last season. They both represented "unforced errors" and untimely hedging. Many (including myself) questioned the quality of the front part of our rotation beyond Bradish. It was hard to see that we had excellent depth in the starting rotation. But not the kind of quality up top to succeed through multiple rounds of the playoffs. Flaherty was literally one of the worse starting pitchers that was available. I understand that Elias was working on Cease. But you have to have a credible plan B. You can jump from plan A to plan F (break glass in case of emergency). Flaherty was so bad with us (IMO predictably) that he wasn't an option to start a postseason game and Fujinama wasn't even worth considering to appear on the roster.  IMO those were hedging trades that were made trying to be as cheap as possible when the roster was already as lost costing as could be. I understand that spending is inevitably an ownership choice. So, hopefully without the stench of Scrooge McAngelos around this time, Elias won't have such limiting hinderances to deal with.
    • Another step closer as the league now giving 100% run to the option people like better starting next week. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/40377474/abs-challenge-system-set-used-triple-starting-june-25 Today and next two days sound like end of the line for full ABS withholding some valuable extra strikes on Chayce McDermott's nasty breaking pitches.
    • Jeff Kemp and Brian Holloway were two years behind me in high school.  Also Olympic Gold Medalist Mike Barrowman and Darren Star (Beverly Hills 90210 creator) and a few others.  And me.  
    • First Brooks Robinson and now Gunnar...those O's will never learn. Drafting sketchy players from sketchy high schools.
