Tillman's future

Check out Jeff Zrebiec's blog entry about Chris Tillman, who Jeff believes is about to be optioned back to Norfolk. I'm not surprised after last night's start called into question his velocity and command. He's a very young guy and the Orioles need to handle him carefully or risk him not developing into the solid major leaguer everybody has projected him to be.

Also on the Orioles Insider blog, Dean Jones picked up some comments by Bobby Valentine from an ESPN Radio interview in New York. Sounds a lot like Valentine isn't interested in the job. One more reason to predict that Eric Wedge will get the job.

Evening update: The Orioles have decided instead to keep Tillman in the bullpen this week, but he could end up back in Norfolk soon if he doesn't get regular work.
