- Swing Early (Again): Opposing hitters are batting .429 on the first pitch Tillman throws.
- Don’t Give Up: Batters are hitting ..367 off Tillman with 2 outs.
- Be Patient: After Tillman throws his 51st pitch of the game, batters are hitting .337 off him. So, for the Yankees, take as many pitches as you can to get Tillman to that 51 mark as soon as possible.
