There probably have been five times in the past 20 months or so that I've written a game story about Chris Tillman's continued emergence/maturation as a pitcher. Several times I've written about whether he is - or is at least on his way to becoming -  a staff ace. Whenever I've asked scouts or baseball executives about Tillman, though, I'm told he is a No. 2 starter, maybe a No. 3 on a great team. But then you see what he did Sunday, and you have to wonder, if he can do that consistently, why he can't earn that ace label.

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.

SARASOTA, Fla. -   Orioles  third baseman Manny Machado returned to Sarasota on a red-eye flight from Los Angeles late Thursday night, but it's still unclear when Machado can return to playing in games. Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the surgeon who performed Machado's left-knee surgery in October, cleared Machado for all physical activity after examining his left knee on Thursday. His return is in the Orioles trainers' hands now, but first Machado must resume his baserunning progression that was halted by releasing of scar tissue as a result of the surgery.

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.

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.

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.

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.
