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....

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.

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.
