Who starts Tuesday?

Who starts Tuesday?

After the AS break we will have Hammel, Chen, Tillman, and Gonzalez.

Who starts the game on Tuesday? Britton lines up for that start according to Roch. Will wee see him make his 2012 debut?

Reading on Twitter that it's likely Britton! Thoughts?

Might be Britton. Not sure entirely how I feel about it. I didn't watch his last start unfortunately but watched the two before.
Just ran out of gas, although he did pitch 8 innings his last start.

Really like Britton as a pitcher and a person, so hope he can come up and help solidify this rotation.

Agreed on both parts. One of my favorite players I've met and a perfect pitcher for Camden Yards.

Britton was the best pitcher on the team last season so I am very happy if he is indeed called up. I just hope they aren't rushing him and that he is 100% ready.

He's been in Norfolk for a fair while now, so I would think it would be time to see what he can give us.

I'm just not going to head into his start expecting much honestly. Assuming he is the one called up (could end up just using Eveland....)

I'd give Eveland another star unless they feel Britton is 100 % completely ready. Britton's K/9 in AAA at 5.31 is lower than his K/9 in MLB last year at 5.66. I'am still trying to catch on to some of these stats, but is that a concern?

He's had command issues as he has tried to find his "touch". I would focus more on his last four starts.

Yes it's a concern. Britton isn't where he needs to be yet but over his last few starts his command and velocity have reportedly been better.
