The Baltimore Orioles have placed 28-year old righty starting pitcher Chris Tillman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 21st, due to right shoulder inflammation. Tillman has pitched in 26 games (all starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 15-5 with a 3.76 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. He has given up 136 hits and 58 walks while whiffing 126 batters in his first 153 innings for the Orioles so far this year. 32-year old righty Ubaldo Jimenez will replace Tillman in the rotation, but he will have to pitch well to get more than one start this time around. Jimenez has pitched in 22 games (18 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 5-10 with 1 save, a 6.94 ERA and a 1.91 WHIP. He has given up 122 hits and 59 walks while whiffing 87 batters in his first 94 2/3 innings this year for the Orioles, as he has truly been awful! The Orioles have called up 26-year old righty starting pitcher Mike Wright to replace Tillman on the active roster. Wright has pitched in 14 games (12 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 3-4 with a 5.97 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. Wright has given up 76 hits (12 homers) and 26 walks while whiffing 48 batters in his first 69 1/3 innings for the Orioles so far this year. The Orioles hope that Tillman only has to miss a couple of weeks, as he has been by far their best starting pitcher in 2016!
