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.

Tillman is obviously not healthy and it's an open question if he'll ever be effective again even in a back of the rotation manner.  Put this guy on the DL.  I know we don't have much pitching but Tillman is a disaster waiting to happen every time he starts.  Bring up Lucas Long or someone, take a shot.  See how it goes because right now were being overwhelmed.

The pitch on which he gave up the homer to Judge was essentially a BP fastball; straight and down the middle.

 

I mean, you have to DL him at this point just because SOMETHING is clearly wrong.

Yep, 84MPH middle in, no movement.  That's not going to get it done in the minors, let alone the majors.
