Tillman making progress from abdominal soreness

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles starter Chris Tillman continues to progress from abdominal soreness and will throw either a simulated game or a bullpen session on Friday.

"I feel much better," said Tilman, who was scratched from Sunday's scheduled start. "I came in yesterday, threw long toss, threw a little flat ground. It went good, and hopefully tomorrow [I'm] going to get on the mound."


Tillman said there are no plans right now for him to get into an actual spring game, and the organization has proceeded cautiously with the 24-year-old, who is projected to be part of the starting rotation after going 9-3 with a 2.93 ERA in 15 games last year.
