The Orioles are going for the sweep of the White Sox with Chris Tillman on the mound for the first time this season.

Chris Tillman is back! I want to be excited about this, but his results in his rehab starts were pretty underwhelming. I know that doesn't mean anything supposedly, but still. Fingers crossed that he's back to a good form. The Orioles could use him.

Opposing Tillman is Jose Quintana, who is not only a lefty but also quite a good pitcher. He's having kind of a crappy season so far but I still know that he is a good left-handed pitcher so my worries aren't washed away by his 4.10 ERA.

Jonathan Schoop is out for the second straight day and Caleb Joseph also needs a day off, so we get to see Francisco Pena make his first start of the season. Get well soon, Welington! Seth Smith is also sitting due to the lefty starter, so enjoy Mark Trumbo in right field.

Let's go O's!
