    • Indians' Josh Tomlin: Back with Cleveland next year
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Indians exercised Tomlin's $3 million option for the 2018 season, The Athletic's Zack Meisel reports. In an expected move, the club elected to retain the services of Tomlin on a club-friendly option. During the regular season, the right-hander started 26 games, posting a 4.98 ERA and 1.28 WHIP while holding a 109:14 K:BB. He figures to remain at the back end of the club's rotation next year.

    • Indians' Josh Tomlin: Lined up to start Game 4
      By RotoWire Staff

      Tomlin is tentatively scheduled to start Game 4 of the ALDS against either the Twins or Yankees. Manager Terry Francona said Tomlin will be available out of the bullpen for the first three games of the series, so the Indians could turn elsewhere for a Game 4 starter if he is used in relief before then. Tomlin compiled a 3.52 ERA and 23:2 K:BB in 30.2 innings over six September starts.

    • Indians' Josh Tomlin: Wins regular-season finale
      By RotoWire Staff

      Tomlin (10-9) allowed one run on four hits while striking out six batters through 5.1 innings to take the win over the White Sox on Sunday. After lasting just 3.2 innings in his previous start, this was a solid rebound from Tomlin, and he's now allowed two runs or fewer in seven of his past eight starts. However, even with the strong stretch, the 32-year-old veteran finishes the season with an underwhelming 4.98 ERA. While the year-end numbers don't jump off the page, there were multiple runs this season when Tomlin was a solid fantasy asset. Pitching for a contender obviously helps his value, too.

    • Tomlin lasted just 3.2 frames Tuesday against the Twins, giving up four runs on eight hits. He struck out three without a walk and didn't factor into the decision. The soft-tossing righty had put together an eight-game streak of allowing three or fewer runs -- a span in which he posted a 2.74 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 36:3 K:BB -- but that's over now. When you pitch to as much contact as Tomlin does, you always run the risk of outings like this one, so it's not a big surprise that he owns a 5.11 ERA on the season. He lines up to start the Indians' final game of the regular season Sunday against the White Sox.

    • Tomlin gave up two runs on seven hits over 5.1 innings Wednesday while striking out five but didn't factor into the decision in a 6-5 win over the Angels. He got the hook after only 83 pitches (57 strikes) with the score knotted at 2-2, as manager Terry Francona continues to limit Tomlin's workload. The righty now has a 2.91 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in four September starts, but hasn't completed six innings in any of them. He's set for one more trip to the mound in the regular season Wednesday at home against the Twins.
