Tillman 7/3 start

These kids are not just knocking on the door, they're about to beat it down. I can't come up with any reason to keep Arrieta and Tillman down here any longer and Matusz and right behind them.

So that's 21 walks in 80 innings. Great walk rate, great K rate. Going deeper into games. Pretty much dominating the competition. Why keep him at AAA?

Because they want to give innings to Berken and Hernandez, and they're not ready to trash Hill.

Even if they were ready to trash Hill, the 5th starter won't get a lot of work in July.

I am sure that the plan was to keep Tillman at AAA all season unless the O's miraculously got into a playoff run, and since that isn't happening, there's no reason to deviate from the plan.

We'll see him in September, probably. Maybe Arrieta too.

If we're gonna see Tillman this year, it won't be after he's thrown 130+ innings of baseball, IMO.

I'm starting to think that the only way we see him is due to injury.

Hopefully they'll trade Baez or Sherrill soon and one of Berken or Hernandez can be moved to the BP where they'll likely wind up anyways.

Way too early on that for both Berken and Hernandez. They need starts so that the Orioles can figure out what they've got.

This is the time to do it -- right now. Next year the innings will be much harder to free up.

I just pulled a hammy... can we call him up now?

Berken and Hernandez have already had some starts and they will continue to get some more.

We also need to understand how good Tillman, Arrieta and Matusz will pitch at the next level. The plan appears to be to get Matusz innings this year and then he will probably start at AAA for a few weeks next year. Tillman and Arrieta should get major league innings this year, IMO.

Oh yeah, great start by Tillman.

I understand what you mean, but these three don't really need early tryouts. Not that they are guaranteed to be good (of course there are no guarantees) but we know that they will get every chance to succeed regardless of how good they are early on. Really, apart from the question of when to bring them up, there are few decisions to be made where they are concerned.

That's not necessarily the case with 2nd tier talent like Hernandez, and it's definitely not the case with Berken.

    • Twenty people believe there’s a trade before the season that changed the offseason? Hmm I said it when Elias was hired. Nothing of any significance will change until there’s new ownership.  Actually, I questioned his ability to perform his duties with the current ownership. I’m still waiting for an impact signing. However, I think they may have a chance with the young guys. Of course, that assumes a big season from Adley, Gunnar and GrayRod and it’s likely at least one of that group has growing pains.    I also hope Hall gets a real shot as a SP. Too many people didn’t recognize the strides he made in season and he’s always been a starter. His stint in the pen was useful, but that kid has electric stuff.  Don’t get me wrong, Elias has been ok, but how much could he do if they loosened the purse strings? Yes, I know, the Frazier signing, but how bout that Gibson guy!  
    • The biggest development of the season will be the sale of the team.
    • We will be fortunate if GRod has a sub 4 ERA. I don’t see him as any more important than the rest of the starters.  If he is ever a true ace (and the odds are against that), it won’t likely be in 2023. The biggest development to this year will be revolved around all the young players, not just one. Everything about this team and the future success of this organization hinges on them. 
    • I'd say that is a yes. https://www.mlb.com/glossary/transactions/service-time  
    • Unusual, in that Birds usually avoid both Fox and Wolf.
    • Why not keep Al and NL just make each have East and West Divisions. Al East is our current group plus Chicago WS and Cleveland plus an expansion in Charlotte-Nashville. AL west gets the rest NL east is that current group plus Chicago Cubs, Pittsburg, and Cincinnati. the west gets the rest plus an expansion in Vegas or wherever. You play your division 15 times (105 games) and the other division say 6 times (48 games). That gets you to 153, add a 3 game inter league to a close geographic rival (Gnats) you are at 156. Expand Playoffs so top 4 in each Division in. the top 2 advance to face the other geographic Division. league winners in WS
