Tomlin pitched 5.2 innings, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four in a no-decision Thursday against the Royals. The right-hander continued his trend of short, but effective outings, tossing fewer than 80 pitches for a sixth consecutive start. Although Tomlin is 5-0 with a 2.66 ERA over his last seven games, his low strikeout rate and stamina create problems for fantasy owners. He's scheduled to make his next start Wednesday on the road against the Angels.
Tomlin (9-9) picked up the win after allowing two runs on four hits while striking out three batters across five innings Saturday against the Orioles. Tomlin collected his second win in as many starts since returning from the disabled list at the beginning of September, and he's allowed just three runs over 10 innings (2.70 ERA) in those two outings. His 6.8 K/9 limits his fantasy upside, but the Indians have been unbeatable lately, so the 32-year-old could continue to steal some wins down the stretch. Tomlin will look to keep lowering his 5.13 ERA as he faces the Royals on Thursday in his next start.
Tomlin (8-9) picked up the win over the Tigers on Sunday, giving up one run on six hits and a walk over 5.2 innings while striking out two. Cleveland scored four runs in the first three innings en route to an 11-1 rout, allowing Tomlin to settle in and pound the zone without too many worries. The right-hander was limited to 74 pitches (52 strikes) in his first start since coming off the disabled list, but he should be able to handle a full workload in his next outing Saturday at home against the Orioles.
The Indians activated Tomlin (hamstring) from the 10-day disabled list Friday. The right-hander was slated to start Wednesday but had to wait after a rain postponement. Tomlin is tentatively expected to start Sunday against the Tigers.
Tomlin (hamstring) will not start either game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. The expectation was that Tomlin would start Wednesday, but the Indians shuffled things around following Tuesday's postponement. Trevor Bauer and Ryan Merritt are now slated to start in New York, while Tomlin will move back to either Friday or Sunday against Detroit. Tomlin posted a 2.60 ERA, 0.63 WHIP and 16:1 K:BB in three second-half starts before landing on the DL.
