Club sources report that Chris Tillman will return to the Orioles for the 2018 season. Tillman has been working out at the Ed Smith Complex this off-season, looking to rebound from a dismal 2017 campaign. Reports indicated that the Blue Jays, Twins, and Phillies also had interest/offers. The Tigers had him throw for them on Saturday.

Tillman is said to be receiving a one year three million dollar base MLB contract with incentives that could push his totals closer to ten million.

The Orioles signed right-hander Andrew Cashner to help fill out a sparse rotation last week as well.

Club EVP Dan Duquette indicated in Roch Kubatko’s column that he is still looking for starting pitching in the market.

Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
