Carlos Carrasco earns place in Indians rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) One bad spring start could not prevent Carlos Carrasco from landing the final spot in the Indians rotation. But one bad spring start might have cost Josh Tomlin the same.

Carrasco rebounded from that awful start with a decent one Monday. Tomlin, who had been brilliant in exhibition play, struggled on Tuesday. Carrasco was named the starter Wednesday, per WTAM-1100.

Tomlin was also the victim of having another minor league option left. Carrasco is out of options.

The Indians like the electric stuff of Carrasco moreso than the pinpoint control that Tomlin often brings to the mound and is required of him to be successful. Carrasco has performed better out of the bullpen in the past, but his 97-mph fastball and baffling movement on his breaking pitches motivated the team to give him another chance as a starter.


Josh Tomlin surrenders four runs in latest rotation bid


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin gave up four earned runs on seven hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 5-0 loss to the Rangers Tuesday.

Tomlin is locked in a battle with Carlos Carrasco for the final spot in the team's rotation, and Tuesday's outing was a small step back for the rotation candidate. He has posted a 3.54 ERA and 19:4 K:BB ratio in 20 1/3 innings.


Indians down to two candidates for fifth spot in rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) The Indians announced Monday they optioned starting pitcher Trevor Bauer to Triple-A Columbus, taking him out of the running for the final spot in the team's rotation. The battle for the final spot is now between Josh Tomlin and Carlos Carrasco.

Homers ruin otherwise brilliant outing for Josh Tomlin


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) Indians right-hander Josh Tomlin was rolling merrily along Friday, perhaps even taking the lead in the battle for the fifth rotation spot. He had given up three hits in four shutout innings against a White Sox lineup loaded with starters. Then he gave up successive home runs to Conor Gillaspie and Josh Phegley.

Tomlin had been sensational this spring until the back-to-back bombs. He is in a fight with Carlos Carrasco and Aaron Harang for the starting job, but is likely to remain on the roster as a long reliever if he doesn't get it.


Josh Tomlin continues to impress in second start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin, in competition for the team's only open rotation spot, picked up the win on Sunday against the Brewers in Cactus League play.

Josh Tomlin surrenders two runs Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin gave up two earned runs on on three hits and one walk while striking out two in three innings in his team's 5-4 win over the White Sox Tuesday.

Tomlin is in competition for the team's only open rotation spot. He pitched two scoreless innings in his debut, giving him a 3.60 ERA and 4:1 K:BB ratio through five spring innings.


Josh Tomlin strikes out two in two scoreless innings Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin, who is competing for a rotation spot this spring, pitched two scoreless innings in relief in his spring debut Friday, striking out two batters and allowing two hits in his team's 4-0 win over the Reds.

"Overall, I felt great," Tomlin told MLB.com after the performance. "My arm feels good and my body feels good. That's the main thing I'm taking away from this one."

"[Tomlin] pretty much does what he does," Francona told MLB.com. "He stayed down in the zone, commanded hit pitches, was quick to the plate. It was kind of as advertised. I'm sure as the spring goes, he'll get sharper, but I thought he was good."

Tomlin was only able to pitch two innings last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He went 5-8 with a 6.36 ERA in 103 1/3 innings in 2012.


Tribe wins arbitration case against Josh Tomlin


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2014) The Indians are 2-0 in their first arbitration cases since 1991 after a win against right-hander Josh Tomlin announced on Saturday. Tomlin will make $800,000 in 2014. He was seeking $975,00.

Tomlin pitched just two innings last year in recovering from Tommy John surgery, but is in the mix for the fifth starting spot this spring.

Josh Tomlin could see start down stretch


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) Indians manager Terry Francona could give pitcher Josh Tomlin a start down the stretch in September, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. That said, Francona said Tomlin will pitch in relief for now. 

"There might be an opportunity for him to start," the manager said. "He's been pounding the strike zone [in rehab starts]. His last outing was really good ... But even though he can pitch when it counts now, he'll still be feeling his way through things. I think next year, you'll see what he can really do."
