Pitch F/x: Chris Tillman's Debut
Orioles prospect Chris Tillman made his debut last night, so let’s take a look at how he did. First, his line from his outing:
Now, let’s go to the Pitch F/x, in all its glory. Click on image to enlarge.
Fastball – 60 at 93.35 MPH
Changeup – 18 at 81.07
Curveball – 15 at 79.38
Now, he has some good movement on his curveball, and his changeup is ok. His fastball is a little straight for my liking, but he may be able to get away with it if he continues throwing it at 93 MPH.
Expect to see plenty more from Tillman this year, as he seems to be up in the bigs for good. He’s already proved himself in the minors (posted a FIP of 2.95 in AAA this year), so the majors are his next task.
