Tillman makes second rehab start

MLB.com @Britt_Ghiroli

BALTIMORE -- Orioles starter Chris Tillman went 3 2/3 innings in his second rehab start on Saturday night, allowing three runs on five hits with three strikeouts against Double-A Harrisburg.

Tillman was originally slated to pitch for the O's Class A Frederick affiliate, but with ominous weather, the team opted to keep him with Double-A Bowie, where Tillman made his first rehab start. It was a smart move as the Frederick game was rained out.

Tillman, who threw 58 pitches (37 strikes), is slated to start again on Thursday for Frederick, who will be playing at Potomac. The O's don't need a fifth starter until May 2, and they are hoping Tillman -- rehabbing from a right shoulder injury -- will be able to slot in then.
