Tribe rotation in more transition as Tomlin sent down to Columbus

With the trade deadline less than a week away, the Indians rotation is undergoing more upheaval. Zach McAllister has been recalled and will start Saturday night's game at Kansas City. To make room for McAllister, Josh Tomlin has been optioned to Columbus. McAllister started last Saturday's game at Detroit, going 5 1/3 innings while giving up a run and striking out six. The...

Second Thoughts Game #103: Cleveland 4, Kansas City 6

Before 2014, Josh Tomlin’s pitching repertoire was defined more by the absence of traits than their presence. This phrase should not be interpreted as a pejorative, merely a statement of fact. Of the 465 pitchers who had thrown at least 300 innings between 2004 and 2013, Tomlin ranked 405th in strikeout-per-plate appearance (.132) and 452nd in walks per PA (.046). It should elicit...

Embarrassing: Two grown men wrestle over Torii Hunter home run ball (video)

Torii Hunter hit a two-run homer off Josh Tomlin to put the Detroit Tigers ahead by a score of 4-0 in an eventual 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians at Comerica Park on Sunday, but it is what happened once the ball cleared the fence that makes the round-tripper a more compelling — and embarrassing […] The post Embarrassing: Two grown men wrestle over Torii Hunter home run ball...

Tomlin, Indians look to make fireworks in series opener vs KC

The Cleveland Indians' Josh Tomlin had gotten knocked around before turning in one of the team's best single-game showings last weekend. He faces a tough task up next against the Kansas City Royals, who continue to shine on the road. Tomlin tries to build on his first shutout as the AL Central rivals open a three-game set Friday night. Tomlin (5-5, 3.78 ERA) lost a career...

About Last Night: Another look back at Josh Tomlin's one-hitter

As the Indians get set to face Seattle today in the finale of a three-game series, most of the discussion is still about Josh Tomlin's one-hitter on Saturday. In Cleveland's 5-0 win, Tomlin pitched the second complete game of his career but this was the first that was a shutout. It is also the franchise's first complete game one-hitter since Billy Traber did it on July...

Second Thoughts Game #80: Cleveland 5, Seattle 0

Josh Tomlin's 2014 had been likely the most successful of his career. His 4.24 ERA entering Saturday's game was the best of his career, his strikeout rate has been at a career high, and most of his struggles have been brought on by an unsustainably high home run per fly ball ratio. Tomlin's xFIP (3.56) has been very good for a starter, strikingly so given that xFIP has...

Josh Tomlin strikes out 11, allows one hit as Indians beat Seattle Mariners, 5-0

Before he took the mound at Safeco Field on Saturday night, Josh Tomlin wasn't pitching like Josh Tomlin. The Little Cowboy had been knocked around by Detroit and Arizona. Saturday night Tomlin didn't exactly pitch like himself either. Not if you call throwing the best game in his career a normal occurrence. Tomlin struck out 11 and allowed one hit in the Indians' 5...

Tomlin terrific as Indians grab 5-0 win

Cleveland (39-41): 5 Seattle (43-38): 0 WP: J. Tomlin (5-5) LP: R. Elias (7-6) Josh Tomlin turned in a dandy for the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night in Seattle. Just one hit from Kyle Seager kept Tomlin out of the history books. He was that special on Saturday night at Safeco Field. Tomlin would toss a complete game masterpiece for the Indians. He tossed 111 pitches and surrendered...

Indians what to watch for: Tomlin looks to rebound

Josh Tomlin got off to a quick start when he was called up from Columbus and joined the Indians rotation in early May. He won three of his first four appearances and had a 2.91 ERA. Since then he has struggled. Going into tonight's game against Seattle, the right-hander has won only one of his past six starts and has pitched six innings or less in all but one. Since nearly having...

The inimitable Josh Tomlin: old dogs, new tricks, and revisited parades

I try to avoid declaring any one person unique, as such declarations imply there are non-unique people—boring and generic caricatures, leading rote and empty lives. This feels like a nasty thing to say, even only as an implication. But Josh Tomlin is unique and you are leading a rote and empty life. Let’s begin with some TOMLINY attributes. He gives up considerably more home...
