Orioles Reach Out To Chris Tillman And Wade Miley Ahead Of Free Agency

Published

on

The Baltimore Orioles have reached out to impending free agents Chris Tillman and Wade Miley about returning to the team on incentive-laden one-year contracts, according to Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun.

Miley, 30, has a $12M club option but it is expected that Baltimore will opt to pay a $500K buyout after a rough 2017 season.

Tillman has been a staple in the Orioles rotation but shoulder issues plagued him this season, his worst in his career.

Tillman finished 2017 posting a 7.84 ERA with a career-low 6.1 K/9 against a 4.9 BB/9 which was the 2nd worst of his career.

The reported talks with both pending free agents are characterized as “preliminary” by Encina, if not “procedural.”
