Baltimore is making a good move looking ahead to next season, as according to Jon Heyman of FanRagSports, they have re-signed the starting pitcher Chris Tillman to a Major League deal for one year.

 

According to information from Chris Cotillo of SB Nation, Tillman will get $3 million guaranteed, with the possibility of maxing the deal up to $10 M through incentives.

 

The O's have added yet another pitcher to their rotation, as in the last couple of days they have signed Andrew Cashner and Kevin Gausman. Cashner agreed to a contract worth $16 million over 2 years, while Gausman avoided arbitration with Baltimore after agreeing to a one-year extension for $5.6 M.

 

Tillman has spent his whole career in Baltimore since his MLB debut in the 2009 season. He had a tough year last season, as he was placed on the Disabled List in the first month of the campaign due to a shoulder injury. Also, he was sent to the bullpen after some bad displays as a starting pitcher, finishing the season with a 1-7 record and a 7.84 ERA.

 

He holds a career record of 73-55, posting a 4.43 ERA with 843 K's over 9 seasons.
