Orioles rookie infielder Jonathan Schoop is starting to find his comfort zone at the plate, as was indicated by his four-hit game in the Orioles' 8-4 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night. Schoop, who began the season with just two hits in his first 18 at-bats, is now riding a seven-game hitting streak and is hitting .429 over that span. His four-hit day bumped his season average to .304. During Friday night's game, I started getting questions from fans about what the Orioles are going to do with Schoop once third baseman Manny Machado returns from injury.

MINNEAPOLIS - Chris Tillman's supposed rebirth didn't hit a snag Monday night in Minnesota. It derailed in a horrible way. The 24-year-old right-hander joined the Orioles with optimism he could show he could be a consistent major-league starter. At Triple-A Norfolk, he refined his mechanics, made his delivery more fluid and above all, showed the Orioles he deserved an opportunity to prove what he could do in the club's starting rotation. A dominating Orioles season debut 11 days ago in Seattle provided hope - just what the organization needed with their major league rotation tattered with uncertainty.

There was plenty of motivation for Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman  on Monday night if he wanted to seize it. He was facing the Seattle Mariners, the team that traded him away in 2008; his Orioles are in a surprising pennant race; his fellow starters had just strung together three impressive outings and, in his last start, he got bashed for five runs in the first inning before settling in. Tillman, though, said none of that is fueling him....

The Orioles announced Monday that right-hander Chris Tillman has been selected as the fans' choice bobblehead this year. The team plans to give the bobblehead to the first 25,000 fans ages 15 and over who attend the 1:35 p.m. game Sept. 21 against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards. For the third straight year, fans selected the player to be honored with the bobblehead giveaway. Tillman, who will be recognized with his first bobblehead as a member of the Orioles, beat out right-handers Tommy Hunter, Ubaldo Jimenez and Darren O'Day in voting that began April 3 and ended May 12. Also, the Orioles announced that Greg Vasas, of Pasadena, won a VIP experience that includes four lower box tickets to the Sept.

After another quality start Monday night, Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman again gave credit to catcher Nick Hundley for being “right on with every pitch.” It has become a trend now. Hundley has caught Tillman's last six starts, and their numbers together have been fantastic. In 12 games with Hundley behind the plate, Tillman has a 2.67 ERA and opponents have hit just .205 against him. In seven starts with Caleb Joseph catching, Tillman's ERA is to 5.29 and opposing batters have a .287 average.

NEW YORK -- Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland, who is managing the American League All-Star team, spoke Monday afternoon about his decision to choose Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman for his squad over the New York Yankees' Hiroki Kuroda. Leyland, who announced his starting lineup Monday , said he had about five names he was considering to take the spot of Justin Verlander, who pitched Sunday and thus isn't available for Tuesday's game. “I looked at it very thoroughly, and at the end of the day, I added Tillman because I just felt like ... I'd almost be embarrassed not to take a guy that's 11-3 to the All-Star Game," Leyland said.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman's superb performance against the Mariners Wednesday afternoon earned him another start after the All-Star break. So why did the Orioles immediately option Tillman to Double-A Bowie following their 4-2 win over Seattle? The main reason is because the Orioles want Tillman to continue pitching throughout next week's break instead of taking 10 days off. So he will start for Bowie -- he last pitched for the Baysox in 2008 -- on Monday. He will then get in extra days of rest before being activated to pitch a week from Sunday -- the first day he's eligible to return -- against the Tigers.

Chris Tillman already had plans for the next four days. While four of his teammates traveled to New York for the All-Star Game, the Orioles right-hander was going down to North Carolina for a break from baseball. But at 1:08 p.m. Sunday, manager Buck Showalter called Tillman into his office and said, “Congrats.” About 10 minutes later, he was standing next to four of his teammates on the infield at Camden Yards holding a blue All-Star Game jersey with his No. 30 on the back. Tillman was added to the American League All-Star Game roster, replacing Detroit Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander, who started Sunday's game for Detroit and is thus ineligible to pitch in the game.
