      Indians' Josh Tomlin: Agrees to extension through 2018

      Tomlin agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Indians on Tuesday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Paul Hoynes reports. Tomlin recently agreed to a one-year, $2.25 million contract for 2016, avoiding arbitration. The extension will pay him $2.5 million in 2017, with a $3 million club option for 2018 that includes a $750,000 buyout. The 31-year-old righty missed the majority of last season while recovering from shoulder surgery, but he excelled to the tune of a 3.02 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 57:8 K:BB ratio in 65.2 innings (10 starts) over the final seven weeks of the campaign. Though still highly vulnerable to the long ball, Tomlin should have the inside track to the fourth or fifth spot in Cleveland's starting rotation.

      Indians' Josh Tomlin: Agrees to terms with Indians

Tomlin missed most of the year after undergoing shoulder surgery in March, but he'll enter spring training at full health.

      Indians SP Josh Tomlin strikes out five in win Friday

      Indians starting pitcher Josh Tomlin allowed two runs on five hits, walking two and striking out five over 6 1/3 innings of an 8-2 win against Boston on Friday night. Tomlin (7-2, 3.02 ERA) finishes up with another solid outing as his only real mistake was a fourth inning two-run home run off the bat of David Ortiz. Tomlin had shoulder surgery in April, and didn't return to the Indians' rotation until mid-August, but he performed reasonably well over the final third of the year, and should be poised to claim a spot in their rotation for 2016 if he stays healthy.

      Indians SP Josh Tomlin gets beaten up by Royals on Saturday

      Indians starter Josh Tomlin struggled while failing to factor into the decision on Saturday against the Royals, surrendering five earned runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. Tomlin had his worst outing of the season after a two-start stretch where he surrendered only two earned runs over 14 2/3 innings for a sterling 1.27 ERA. A glaring statistic in Saturday's performance was Tomlin's inability to miss bats, with the veteran right-hander inducing only three swings-and-misses over 53 pitches. He also failed to record a single strikeout after totaling five or more in each of his other eight starts in 2015. Given his stretch of solid efforts prior to Saturday's debacle, it's likely that Tomlin can rebound with a strong effort in his next trip to the mound, the final one of an injury-shortened campaign.

      Indians SP Josh Tomlin takes complete-game loss to Royals

      Indians starter Josh Tomlin (5-2) took a rare complete-game loss, yielding four hits and two earned runs in a 2-0 loss to the Royals on Tuesday. He struck out six. It was the epitome of a tough-luck start for Tomlin, who was unable to receive any run support from an Indians offense that was shut down by multiple Royals pitchers. Tomlin actually notched his second complete game in three September appearances, and struck out six batters for the third consecutive start. The veteran right-hander had notched five consecutive victories prior to Tuesday, and had pitched extremely well overall since arthroscopic surgery on the AC joint in his right shoulder delayed his 2015 debut until Aug. 15. Tomlin's walk-free effort on Tuesday also marked the fourth time in his last fifth starts that he has not surrendered a free pass, a key factor in his outstanding 0.68 wHIP metric. Tomlin's next trip to the mound will likely be a home tilt against the White Sox on Sept. 19.

      Indians SP Josh Tomlin picks up victory behind offensive outburst

      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.
