He didn't pitch that well in his three rehab starts so far and the last one was A ball. Seriously I don't think he is ready. Fastball barely touched 90.....that is not a sign of somebody who is ready to face MLB lineups, especially the Red Sox.

You think he's a worse option than Jimenez?

Could be. Tillman has always been a tight rope Walker so if he isn't fully healthy yet no reason to rush him back.

No absolutely not. BUT given that Tillman missed time last year with the shoulder. Took treatments clear into December. Missed a lot of ST. Is barely hitting 90 on the gun. Then hell no I am not bringing him up. I don't think he's ready and am concerned about reinjury.  This team is already headed downhill fast. We have to have Tillman back. But only when he can be somewhat effective.

Biggest thing with Tillman is how he feels tomorrow morning. Can't afford any setbacks for the long term sake of this club, and our limited SP resources and continued Ubaldo implosion. We need to not push him and make sure he's truly ready, physically and mentally before throwing him in there. We need him to produce.
