SARASOTA, Fla. -- Right-hander Chris Tillman, who was scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday with abdomen soreness, said he's feeling better and is slated to throw off a full mound on Thursday in either a bullpen session or simulated game. Tillman received treatment and threw long toss and off flat ground on Tuesday's off day. ' It appears that Tillman will miss his next turn in the rotation, which would be Friday. He said he doesn't know the plans for him beyond Thursday. “I have no idea,” Tillman 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.

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.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman wasn't his sharpest in his final spring tuneup before Opening Day, but he was able to limit the damage to work out of several jams against the Tampa Bay Rays at Charlotte Sports Park on Wednesday. Tillman, who will be the team's Opening Day starter on Monday against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards, made his first start in nine days after missing his last scheduled appearance with the flu. He allowed 10 baserunners (nine hits and one walk)

PORT CHARLOTTE, FLA. -- Chris Tillman didn't waste any time reminding everyone why he was the winningest pitcher on the Orioles staff last year. He opened the Orioles' Grapefruit League season by striking out three and giving up just one hit over two innings against a representative Tampa Bay Rays lineup in the Orioles 4-2 win at Charlotte Sports Park. The only hit was a one-out double by Yunel Escobar. Tillman struck out David DeJesus, James Loney and Will Myers and got his other three outs on fly balls.

SARASOTA, FLA. - The easy Southern California countenance can fool you sometimes. Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman doesn't look or act much different than the 19-year-old kid who showed up for spring training at Fort Lauderdale Stadium fresh off the blockbuster Erik Bedard deal with the Seattle Mariners in 2008, yet just about everybody who watched him win 16 games last season marvels at his dramatic transformation. He might appear to be the same relaxed, soft-spoken guy who came here along with Adam Jones and three other players to help in the transformation of a chronically unsuccessful Orioles organization, but he has finally shed the weight of everybody else's expectations and replaced them with his own. It wasn't easy, and it didn't happen overnight.

Here are some nuggets from Buck Showalter's pregame news conference in Oakland: ** Chris Tillman (elbow) threw a successful bullpen on Thursday and will likely throw one more Saturday before taking the starting assignment Monday in Seattle. It will be Tillman's first outing since leaving the mound on Sept. 2 due to elbow ligament inflammation. The Orioles still list their starter for Sunday as TBA and Showalter said he hasn't made the decision yet - he wants to see who he will need in the bullpen during this series.

Chris Tillman's groundbreaking moment came and went without much fanfare Tuesday. The Orioles right-hander pitched seven innings in a 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays and, in doing so, surpassed 200 innings pitched for the season - a milestone only four other Orioles have reached in the past 12 years. But because the loss ended the Orioles' playoff hopes, Tillman said it was difficult to celebrate his benchmark year. "It's tough," Tillman said. "[Two hundred innings] is more of a personal thing, and this is a big team thing," he said.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Chris Tillman turned in the longest outing of the spring for an Orioles pitcher - topping We-Yin Chen's performance on Friday - and the Orioles beat a makeshift Yankees lineup, 2-1. Tillman, who is considered the likely favorite to start Opening Day for the Orioles, threw five scoreless innings before giving up a solo homer to Francisco Arcia to begin the sixth. It was the only run and just the third hit allowed by Tillman, who struck out five and walked two. “I felt good.

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.
