Any Chance We See Tillman Up Soon?

I'm sure he is going to be our best pitcher in a few years and that is why I wouldn't even think of calling him up and starting his service time.

Personally, I hope Penn gets healthy soon and he's our next call-up. He's out of options after the season and we need to see what we've got.

I'm of the opinion that no pitchers that we look to be contributors down the road should see the service time clock start this season unless they are already in AAA.

He had another very good outing tonight. Kershaw never pitched in AAA. Tillman is now 7-1 and his K's are way up. He should at least be promoted, but I feel like he could be the next guy up.

Kershaw is much more mechanically advanced and ready than Tillman.

What are you basing this on? Not necessarily disagreeing with you and I don't want to see Tillman until next year in B-More, but the guy has been outstanding and consistent. Not sure how he could be so far behind Kershaw in any aspect.

Just curious, but if DC was promoted and other pitchers are from AA, what Tillman need to improve to get the call (maybe in Sept)?

Get deeper in games consistently. Seriously, last night's 6 innings was a deep game for him this year. He throws too many pitches and doesn't last long enough in the game. He is not ready yet. He will be but not yet.

Just looking at the stats, it looks like Tillman misses bats but he's also still missing the glove quite a bit. I think he needs to get those walks under control unless that sub .200 BAA is going to follow him as he progresses - point being it can be expected that he will allow more hits in AAA and MLB. Don't get me wrong, he's doing great, but there is still plenty for him to work on.

If you mean "up" to Norfolk, then I'd agree. But he's only 20 and they probably want to see if he can master AA for an entire season before rushing him to Norfolk or even Baltimore.

I hope that does not happen. I would love to see him at AAA soon. However I see him getting shut down in Sept for two reasons. One, the number of innings he will have pitched and two, they don't want to start his major league service clock.

    • Tampa is a purely transactional team like the A’s.   The Orioles have more resources and can be a hybrid much like the Indians or Mariners.  They can lay out for one or two big free agent contracts and extend their own players.   They will begin being more transactional in 3-4 years when the first wave of players gets closer to free agency.
    • Are the O's willing to participate in the posting process?
    • I wonder if this guy could be a second pitching addition for us.   Seems like he might make a good long reliever/spot starter. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/12/npbs-hanshin-tigers-post-shintaro-fujinami.html  
    • I wimped out and said 120-139.  I really want the answer to be 140-159.   But I’m guessing the cap will be right around 140 or just under.   One factor could be how many pitches Grayson is throwing to get through these innings.  In his pre-injury outings, he was cruising along at 14.9 pitches per inning.   Those are very low stress innings.  But if Grayson finds himself throwing 18 pitches per inning next year in the majors, that’s a different ballgame.  
    • A little short on job title, but as a grateful longtime reader from back in the day, noticed this in Szymborski's chat today. SEA is one of those teams gotta fight past for AL top 6 in the shorter term. 1:06 Josh R: Noticed this in a transactions list :                                      Mariners Named Dave Cameron senior director, player procurement,                                                 Is this the former FanGraphs Dave Cameron?     1:06  Dan Szymborski: Yes     1:06  Dan Szymborski: (Sorry, was making sure he made it official or I couldn’t say anything)     1:06  Dan Szymborski:     Dave Cameron @OneDaveCameron     I should probably mention this now that it’s official. I get to do some really cool stuff for the @Mariners going forward. Quite a journey from @ussmariner (or asbs-m for us extra old people) to now. I couldn’t be more excited. Sincere thank you to all.
