Chris Trotman

Tillman will be the fourth Oriole on the AL All-Star team.

Prior to the Baltimore Orioles game on Sunday, the team introduced its All-Stars to the fans. Among them was one surprise: Starting pitcher Chris Tillman, who was added to the AL roster earlier in the day, reports Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com.

Tillman will replace Detroit Tigers starter Justin Verlander. Verlander is pitching today and will thus be unable to pitch during the All-Star game.

Tillman, who is 11-3 on the year, has made 19 starts during 2013 for the Orioles. He currently has a 3.95 ERA and 1.352 WHIP to go with a 7.17 K/9 and 3.30 BB/9. His ERA places him third among Orioles starting pitchers. Over 15 starts during the 2012 season, Tillman posted a 2.93 ERA.

This will be Tillman's first All-Star selection.

The Orioles will also have 1B Chris Davis, SS J.J. Hardy, and OF Adam Jones representing the team during the All-Star game.
