Orioles Insider: Tillman adds two seamer; Reimold could miss a few games - Your daily destination for Orioles news, analysis and opinion from The Sun's baseball writers - baltimoresun.com:
"In his bullpen session a couple of days before last night’s start, Triple-A Norfolk right-hander Chris Tillman worked with Tides pitching coach Mike Griffin on adding a new pitch to his repertoire – a two-seam fastball.
Tillman threw about four of them during last night’s outing in which he surrendered three runs (all on solo homers), six hits and two walks while striking out seven Charlotte batters over 6 2/3 innings. None of them were for strikes, but Tillman said that he was satisfied with the movement that he was getting on the pitch"
A two-seamer is the magic elixir of 21st century breakout pitchers.
