The Orioles made the Chris Tillman promotion official and apparently believe that Rich Hill has a sore shoulder, because they put the erratic left-hander on the 15-day disabled list to make room for Tillman and avoid outrighting him. To make room on the 15-day list, the club moved pitcher Alfredo Simon to the 60-day DL.
That should not have come as a surprise to anyone, but even I was a little surprised to see that Matt Wieters was not in the lineup tonight after his 4-for-5 performance. Dave Trembley has the catchers on a schedule, and he's apparently sticking to it, though I suppose it's possible that Zaun is being showcased for a last-minute deal.
Someday it will all make sense.
