James Shields of old might be the only link the Rays have to staying above .500. I just am no longer impressed with that lineup. Old and path walkers in too many locations. The youth needs some stable bullets in the lineup and they will sorely miss the multi-talented Crawford sooner rather than later...

So many foul balls. He needs to put these hitters away faster

He looks much improved. That changeup is looking good and he's commanding his pitches well. Needs to step up now that Garza's gone.

Needs to pull the curve out of his pocket when there are 2 strikes.

Hopefully this is going to be a quick inning, something Tillman could use...

Much better inning from Tillman there. Now at 61 pitches through 4. Two more strong innings giving him a solid 6 inning outing would be nice.

There have been a few hard hit balls that the outfield has been able to get to. Tillman's been good, but has had some luck.
