Indians announce roster changes Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) The Indians announced a pair of roster moves prior to Saturday's game against the Royals in Kansas City. The team recalled starter Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus, as the right-hander will start vs. Kansas City. In a corresponding move, they have optioned pitcher Josh Tomlin down to Columbus.

Josh Tomlin struggles against the Royals


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin had a tough start against the Royals Friday.

Tomlin allowed four runs, three earned, on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out five and did not walk any batters. Home runs proved to be an issue for Tomlin. In the second inning, he allowed two solo shots to Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas. Trouble struck again in the fourth inning. After giving up a single, Tomlin allowed a triple to Raul Ibanez. Ibanez would score on an error. 

The Indians managed to tie the game up, meaning Tomlin received a no-decision. His next start is slated to come against the Mariners. 


Josh Tomlin no match for Tigers in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Fading Indians right-hander Josh Tomlin continued to struggle Sunday in Detroit. He fell to 1-5 in his last six decisions by yielding four runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings with one walk and three strikeouts.

Tomlin, whose outing was doomed by a two-run homer in the fourth off the bat of Torii Hunter, has given up 13 earned runs in his last 17 innings pitched.

With the team's rotation in flux, his spot is not assured long-term. He is scheduled to make his next start at Kansas City on Saturday.


Josh Tomlin does not factor into decision Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin had a rough start against the Yankees Wednesday.

Tomlin surrendered four runs on eight hits over seven innings. Things looked solid early on, as Tomlin tossed three scoreless innings to open the game. In the fourth inning, Mark Teixeira managed to break things open with a solo shot. The following inning, Tomlin found himself in trouble. After striking out the leadoff hitter, Tomlin allowed a double and single before Brian McCann hit a sacrifice fly. Teixeira then struck again, hitting a two-run shot, which tied the game.

Tomlin left with the score tied 4-4, and did not factor into the decision. His next start has yet to be determined due to the All-Star break.


Josh Tomlin takes step back on loss to Royals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin took a step back on Friday against the Royals, dropping to 5-6 on the season. The right-hander permitted five runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings of a 7-1 defeat.

Tomlin owns a 4.11 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP over 70 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Wednesday at home against the Yankees.

Josh Tomlin one-hits Mariners in first complete-game shutout


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin was dominant Saturday, giving up just one hit and no walks while striking out 11 to record his first complete-game shutout in his team's 5-0 win over the Mariners.

Tomlin (5-5) tossed four perfect innings before giving up a leadoff single in the fifth. The baserunner would reach third on a wild pitch and throwing error by the catcher with two outs before the pitcher shut the door on the inning. He then pitched four more perfect innings, leaving him just one single shy of a perfect game.

Tomlin came into Saturday's game having given up 14 runs (10 earned) in 9 1/3 innings over his previous two starts, but the one-hitter gives him a 3.78 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 58:9 K:BB ratio in 64 1/3 innings. He'll try his best to follow up the brilliant performance in kind Friday against the Royals.


Josh Tomlin falters late in second straight loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin dropped his second decision in a row Tuesday, in a 9-3 loss to the Angels.

Tomlin had a 2-1 lead entering the fifth inning, but the Angels jumped on him from then on. Tomlin was tagged for four runs in the fifth and one more in the sixth before he was removed from the game, with the final four runs coming on home runs.

Tomlin was charged with six runs -- five earned -- in 5 1/3 innings of work. He allowed 11 hits and struck out four batters and walking none on 99 pitches.

Tomlin is now 4-4 after dropping consecutive decisions, and his ERA rose to 3.86 with the outing. He will try to get back on track in his next start, Sunday against the Tigers.  


Josh Tomlin struggles in loss to Boston


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Indians starter Josh Tomlin struggled against the Red Sox in Boston and dropped to 4-3 on the year Thursday night. The right-hander yielded four runs -- three earned -- on nine hits and two walks while striking out three over 5 2/3 innings.

Over his last two starts covering 13 2/3 innings, Tomlin has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 3.33 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP through 46 innings of work. He will make his next start Tuesday at home against the Angels.

Josh Tomlin a potential option to start Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Even if Indians starting pitcher Josh Tomlin doesn't fare well in his start Thursday at Boston, Fantasy owners should still consider adding him for Fantasy Week 12 (June 16-22), as the right-handed hurler is lining up to be a two-start pitcher.

Tomlin is scheduled to pitch against the Angels (June 17) and Tigers (June 22) next week. They are two tough matchups, but both are at home, where Tomlin has pitched well this season. He is 2-1 with a 2.95 ERA and 0.89 WHIP in four outings (three starts) at home. He's also striking out 8.4 batters per nine innings in those four appearances and already beat the Tigers at home May 21.

As I wrote in this week's Waiver Wire column, I'm an advocate of adding Tomlin in 12-team Head-to-Head and Rotisserie formats. He's been pitching well since the start of spring training and appears to be returning to the form he had before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2012. It also helps Tomlin's Fantasy value in Head-to-Head formats that he has relief-pitcher eligibility.


Josh Tomlin goes eight strong in win over Rangers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Indians starter Josh Tomlin twirled a gem on Saturday against the Rangers, leading his team to an 8-3 victory and his fourth win of the season. The right-hander yielded three runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out five over eight innings of work.

Over his last three starts covering 18 2/3 innings, Tomlin has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 3.12 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP in 40 1/3 innings. He will look to get back on Thursday at Boston.

Josh Tomlin fans eight again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Indians starter Josh Tomlin struck out eight while going 5 2/3 innings Sunday against the Rockies. Tomlin took a no-decision in the 6-4 victory, allowing two earned runs on four hits and a walk.

It was the second straight start in which Tomlin fanned eight. He has 30 strikeouts in 32 1/3 innings. He'll take a 3-2 record and 3.06 ERA into Saturday's start against the Rangers.


Josh Tomlin strikes out eight in loss vs. White Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin was saddled with a loss Monday after giving up five runs (two earned) on five hits and one walk in five-plus innings while striking out eight in his team's 6-2 defeat against the White Sox.

Tomlin (3-2) saw a runner reach first on an error with two outs in the third inning, and two batters later, the White Sox took a 3-1 lead with a blast to left field. He cruised through the next two innings but put the first two batters of the sixth on base before being removed, and both would eventually score. Tomlin owns a 3.04 ERA and 22:4 K:B ratio in 26 2/3 innings. He'll face the Rockies at home Sunday.


Josh Tomlin earns win in relief Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin pitched three innings in relief Wednesday, giving up one earned run on two hits and one walk while striking out six in his team's 11-10, 13-inning win over the Tigers.

Tomlin (3-1) was scheduled to start Thursday's game, but the team will obviously have to look elsewhere after he threw 49 pitches in the win Wednesday. His only blemish came on a solo home run in the 13th inning, but his offense was able to score two runs in the bottom of the inning to pull out the win. Tomlin owns a 2.91 ERA and 14:3 K:BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings. He'll likely face the White Sox early next week.


Josh Tomlin loses Thursday start to Wednesday relief stint


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Indians right-hander Josh Tomlin will almost certainly not make his scheduled start Thursday in the series opener in Baltimore after being forced into the Wednesday game in relief.

Tomlin has been perhaps the team's second-most effective starter since his promotion from Triple-A Columbus. He has given up just six earned runs and two walks in 18 2/3 innings while sporting a 2-1 record.


Josh Tomlin loses despite third straight quality strart


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin tossed his third quality start in a row Saturday against the Athletics, but still took his first loss as the Indians fell, 6-2.

Tomlin allowed three runs in six innings of work, but didn't get much help from his teammates. He gave up five hits and only one walk, though he also struck out just two batters while throwing 63 of 95 pitches for strikes in the loss.

Tomlin has gone at least six innings in each of his three starts, and is now 2-1 with a 2.89 ERA. He will try to get back on track in his next start, set for Thursday against the Orioles. 


Josh Tomlin picks up second straight win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Indians starting pitcher Josh Tomlin posted a quality start and picked up his second win of the season Sunday afternoon against Tampa Bay.

Tomlin surrendered a solo home run to Matt Joyce in the opening frame and a run-scoring single to Joyce in the fourth. He was charged with two earned runs on six hits and no walks while strikings out two in six innings of a 6-5 win. He tossed 102 pitches, 65 strikes.

Tomlin has allowed only three earned runs over his first two starts (12 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at home against Oakland.

Josh Tomlin stellar in debut victory


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) Indians starting pitcher Josh Tomlin acquitted himself nicely in his season debut Tuesday, a 4-2 win over the Twins.

Tomlin twirled a quality start in his first appearance of the season, limiting the Twins to just one run on a seventh-inning solo home run. He was charged with one run on four hits and a walk, while striking out four batters over 6 2/3 innings of work for the win.

Tomlin failed to earn a rotation spot out of spring training, but should get the chance to prove himself moving forward. His next start is scheduled for Sunday in Tampa.  


George Kottaras taken off roster to clear spot for Josh Tomlin


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) Indians catcher George Kottaras was designated for assignment Tuesday to clear a roster spot for starting pitcher Josh Tomlin, who is rejoining the rotation. Kottaras homered twice in his only game with Cleveland Sunday.

Josh Tomlin draws Tuesday start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2014) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin will start Tuesday, according to the Plain Dealer.

The club was considering Tomlin and Trevor Bauer for the start, but decided to go with the veteran. Tomlin narrowly missed out on the rotation this spring, and will get a chance to prove he can stick as a starter. He'll take on the Twins in his first start. Tomlin was on the same schedule as demoted starter Carlos Carrasco, so that could be the reason the team opted for him over Bauer.


Trevor Bauer, Josh Tomlin are top options to join rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) With Carlos Carrasco now in the bullpen, Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin are considered the leading candidates to join the Indians' rotation, according to The Plain Dealer and MLB.com.

Bauer made a spot start for Cleveland in a doubleheader April 9 against the Padres. He took the loss despite pitching well. He allowed two runs (one earned) and struck out eight in six innings. He is 3-0 with a 1.40 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 28 strikeouts in four starts (25 2/3 innings) for Triple-A Columbus.

Tomlin, who lost out to Carrasco for the final spot in the rotation this spring, is 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in four starts (26 innings) for Columbus.


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.

Tomlin allowed three hits and one walk while striking out five over four scoreless frames. He has allowed two runs over nine innings pitched this spring.
