Today's starter at Norfolk
It isn't Chris Tillman.
Left-hander Chris Waters is taking the ball for the Tides today, and he's actually working on normal rest. Though he was removed from the rotation, he tossed five scoreless innings in the nightcap of Friday's doubleheader against Charlotte.
In the first game, Tillman allowed one run and struck out seven over 6 2/3 innings.
We can sit here and wonder if something is up with Tillman, since he isn't starting today at Gwinnett. But it would have made sense to give him the ball. His next turn would fall on Monday, and he could have replaced Rich Hill.
Instead, Tillman is scheduled to start tomorrow.
