Indians' Josh Tomlin to miss 3-4 months due to shoulder surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) The Indians announced Friday pitcher Josh Tomlin will undergo arthroscopic debridement surgery due to chronic AC joint inflammation in his right shoulder. He is expected to be sidelined 3-4 months.

Tomlin was optioned to the minors last week. The move will be reversed and he will open the season on the major-league disabled list.

"It's something that kind of crept up in the offseason and lingered on through the spring," Tomlin said, per Cleveland.com. "It's something I don't think was going to go away so we had to do something to make it go away."


Indians option Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) The Indians have optioned pitcher Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.

Tomlin was in the mix for one of the team's two open rotation spots but the Indians chose to roll with Zach McAllister and T.J. House instead. Tomlin gave up four earned runs in eight innings this spring.


Salazar demoted; McAllister, House, Tomlin will compete for final spots


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) The Indians have optioned right-hander Danny Salazar to Triple-A Columbus, just a day removed from a dreadful Cactus League outing, according to the Plain Dealer.

Salazar coughed up seven runs -- six earned -- on six hits and no walks while striking out six over 3 1/3 innings of work against the Reds. The 25-year-old posted a whopping 8.18 ERA through 11 innings this spring.

"I don't know. The stuff is definitely there. It's not there yet consistently, whether he's locating or following a pitch up with two pitches in a row," manager Terry Francona said after Salazar's outing on Thursday. "Again, we'll keep working at it -- that's for darn sure -- but the results weren't the kind of what we're looking for."

The demotion narrows Zach McAllister, T.J. House and Josh Tomlin down to the two final spots in the rotation. House and Tomlin have options, while McAllister is out of options and could be in line for one of those two spots, per the Plain Dealer.


Indians' Josh Tomlin allows nine hits vs. Angels Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin surrendered two earned runs on nine hits and one walk in four innings while striking out two in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Angels.

Tomlin allowed his second home run of the spring in the start, and the damage could have been worse, but two runners were thrown out at home plate.

"It was kind of typical Josh," manager Terry Francona said after the outing, per MLB.com. "He gave up some hits, but he hangs in there and he doesn't beat himself. Even though he gave up [nine] hits, there's only two runs. He's throwing strikes. He ended up going out there for the fifth. They really worked him -- a lot of deep counts, a lot of foul balls -- but he doesn't beat himself."

Tomlin is in the mix for a rotation spot with the Indians. He has allowed four earned runs in eight innings while striking out seven and walking one this spring.


Indians SP Josh Tomlin scheduled to pitch Saturday

Indians' Josh Tomlin (shoulder) scratched Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin has been scratched from his scheduled start Sunday due to shoulder soreness, MLB.com reports.

"Tomlin's shoulder is just a little cranky," manager Terry Francona said, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "We're going to give him two or three days. He could very well pitch through it with no ramifications, but I don't think anyone thinks that makes a lot of sense."

Tomlin is set to battle for the fifth spot in the team's rotation this spring, and shoulder issues could put him behind in the competition. He went 6-9 with a 4.76 ERA and 94:14 K:BB ratio in 104 innings last season.


Indians' Francona comfortable with battle for No. 5 in starting rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) With Josh Tomlin, T.J. House, Danny Salazar, Shaun Marcum, Bruce Chen and Zach McAllister all competing for the final spot of the Indians' rotation, manager Terry Francona told reporters that a few players may end up going to Triple-A or moved to the bullpen once camp breaks, per the Plain Dealer.

"At the moment, we're comfortable," Francona said. "We've all seen where you look up a month later and things happen. The one thing you don't ever want to have happen is have your season derailed because guys go down. You try to come to camp with not only who you think are going to be your five, but you have to have some depth. We have some guys who will probably end up going to Triple-A. Maybe a guy or two ends up in the bullpen. You never know."


Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin puts on 20 pounds of muscle this offseason


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin reported to spring training this year at 193 pounds after weighing in at 170 at the end of 2014.

"You eat," said Tomlin to Cleveland.com. "You eat a lot. I talked to Joe Kessler (Indians strength and conditioning coach) during the winter and I worked with a guy in Tyler (Tex.). We put a good nutrition and strength and conditioning plan together and attacked it."

Tomlin posted a 6-9 record in 2014 with a 4.76 ERA over 104 innings pitched with 94 strikeouts.

"I really didn't feel any different, but the hitters will let you know when your stuff is a little flat," said Tomlin. "Toward the end of the year, the velocity on my fastball dropped a little. It just didn't have the life that it had earlier in the season and I think that may have been a product of me reaching the innings I was reaching. It had been a couple of years since I got to those."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks-Indians postponed Tuesday, DH Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Josh Tomlin sent to bullpen


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin has been moved to the bullpen, MLB.com reports.

Tomlin was scheduled to start Sunday, but now that day's starter is listed as "TBD." It could end up being Carlos Carrasco, who threw 4 1/3 innings in relief of Tomlin Tuesday. Tomlin owns a 4.75 ERA and 82:11 K:BB ratio in 91 innings.


Indians might be forced to return Carlos Carrasco to rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) The Indians used right-hander Carlos Carrasco in relief of scuffling starter Josh Tomlin on Tuesday night against Cincinnati. The former could replace the latter in the rotation going forward, beginning Sunday against the host Yankees.

Tomlin has been a mess since tossing a complete-game one-hitter in Seattle. He has yielded 21 earned runs on 39 hits, including seven home runs, in 26 2/3 innings. His ERA has soared from 3.78 to 4.75 during that stretch.

Carrasco struggled worse than Tomlin as a starter, but the Indians could be forced based on the lack of an alternative to return him to a starting role. He has thrived out of the bullpen, yielding 11 runs in 42 1/3 innings.


Josh Tomlin can't escape fifth inning in loss vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He's scheduled to face the Yankees Sunday.
