It's Hernandez

David Hernandez is the Orioles fifth starter.

David had a great spring leading the Orioles staff with 20 strike outs and a masterful game against the Sox seemed to seal the deal. Chris Tillman will be reassigned to AAA Norfolk. The Orioles want Tillman to develop his cutter more. Orioles.com blogger Britt Ghiroli tweeted Orioles.com Tillman said that the outcome would have been "totally different," if he had stuck with his regular pitches.

Solidifying a cutter would make Tillman just that much more dangerous in the Majors, but Tillman does need to work on his control in general. I don't see Tillman being in AAA long, I expect him to be back in a Baltimore uniform by the summer or the second someone starts to struggle.

Congratulations to David Hernandez, he pitched very well and completely earned this chance. April 6th is approaching, it is getting closer are you excited yet? I know that I am.
