SP Josh Tomlin gets the job done for Indians


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/30/2015) Josh Tomlin was sharp on the hill Sunday to lead the Indians to a sweep of the Angels, his third straight victory. 

Tomlin went seven innings, scattering six hits and allowing just two earned runs. He struck out eight hitters and walked none, working an effective 96 pitches on the day. 

Since returning from shoulder surgery, Tomlin has won three of his four starts, and he has lowered his ERA to 3.08. 


Indians SP Corey Kluber, Josh Tomlin have starts pushed up


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2015) The illness that pushed Indians starter Danny Salazar back from Friday to Monday results in both Corey Kluber and Josh Tomlin having their outings moved up one day.

Terry Francona has declared that Kluber will now start Saturday against the visiting Angels with Tomlin going in the series finale Sunday.


Indians SP Josh Tomlin picks up victory behind offensive outburst


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/25/2015) Indians starter Josh Tomlin was decent in his outing against the Brewers on Tuesday, but he was able to pick up his second win of the season thanks to some big-time offensive support. 

Tomlin (2-1, 3.26 ERA) allowed four runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out seven and did not walk a batter in the 11-6 victory. 

The veteran right-hander was bitten by the longball in this one, as he gave up a trio of home runs on the night. Jonathan Lucroy started things off with a solo home run in the first inning, and Domingo Santana followed with one of his own in the second. Ryan Braun added a two-run shot in the sixth, but the Indians already scored nine runs of their own at that point.

Tomlin was making his third start of the season. The four runs allowed on Tuesday is one more than he had given up in each of his first two starts combined.


Indians SP Josh Tomlin stifles Yankees for first win in 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2015) The Indians have been searching desperately for a fifth starter all season. The latest to get a shot is veteran right-hander Josh Tomlin.

So far, so good.

The soft-tosser has strung together two fine starts, including one against the host Yankees on Thursday night in which he surrendered only one run on two hits in seven innings. He walked two and whiffed six.

His lone hiccup was slammed over the fence by Alex Rodriguez in the fourth. He retired 12 of the next 13 batters he faced.

Tomlin has given up only three runs in 13 1/3 innings since returning from a shoulder injury.

Tomlin allowed just two runs on five hits in 6 1/3 innings of work. He struck out five batters and didn't give up a walk, though he did slip up and allowed two home runs.

With the loss, Tomlin dropped to 0-1 on the season with a 2.84 ERA.

Starting for Class A Mahoning Valley on Wednesday, Tomlin gave up three runs on three hits, while walking two and striking out three over 3 2/3 innings.

Tomlin pitched 2 2/3 shutout innings for Double-A Akron. He walked one and fanned two.

Tomlin threw two innings for the team's Rookie League club Sunday.

"It went good," Tomlin said. "The fastball and cutter were where I wanted it. It was the same with the change up and curve ball. I didn't walk anybody, threw strikes and felt better in the second inning than I did in the first. That was the main thing. I wanted to get those two innings in and see how I recovered."

He is expected to throw three or four innings Friday. Tomlin has not pitched this season as he recovers from shoulder surgery.

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.

Indians option Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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' 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."
