Braves' Josh Tomlin: Re-ups with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin agreed Wednesday with the Braves on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

For the second year in a row, Tomlin will attend Braves camp as a non-roster invitee looking to claim a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. He was able to earn his place in 2019 and stuck on the roster all season, finishing with a 3.74 ERA and 1.12 WHIP across 79.1 innings in 51 appearances (one start). The righty's inability to miss bats limits his fantasy intrigue even in NL-only formats, but he's more valuable from a real-life perspective thanks to his skills in limiting walks and inducing weak contact.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Makes postseason squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin will be on the Braves' NLDS roster, Mark Bowman of reports.

Tomlin beat out Julio Teheran to serve as Atlanta's long reliever. He struck out just 15.9 percent of opposing batters this season but also walked just 2.2 percent, leading to a 3.74 ERA in 79.1 innings.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Starts bullpen game Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin will start Wednesday's game against the Royals, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

He will take the ball to allow Mike Soroka to rest up and get on schedule for the playoff rotation. The last time Tomlin logged more than one inning was when he tossed two frames Sept. 2, so this will be a bullpen game.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Rough outing against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin was tagged for four runs on four hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning of relief in Wednesday's win over the Twins.

Atlanta was up 11-3 heading into the ninth inning when Tomlin got the call, which illustrates how low-leverage his role is in the bullpen right now. On the season, the veteran right-hander has a 4.05 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 41:7 K:BB through 60 innings with one win, two saves and five holds in 39 appearances.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Hit with first loss for Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin (1-1) took the loss Thursday against the Cubs, giving up three runs (two earned) on two hits over 2.2 innings while striking out two.

The veteran right-hander made only one real mistake after taking over for Bryce Wilson in the fifth inning, but Victor Caratini drove that mistake 407 feet to right field for what proved to be the game-winning homer. Tomlin has been mostly solid in a long-relief role for Atlanta this year, posting a 3.94 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 31:4 K:BB through 45.2 innings with a save and four holds in 28 appearances.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Picks up first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin gave up a hit and struck out two in a scoreless 12th inning Sunday to record his first save in a win over the Marlins.

The save was the first of Tomlin's career, not just his season, and came after Luke Jackson, Anthony Swarzak and others had already been used. The veteran right-hander now has a 3.82 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 22:3 K:BB through 33 innings this season, and he's starting to work his way into slightly higher-leverage situations in the Atlanta bullpen, although Tomlin remains far outside the regular closing picture.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Picks up third hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin struck out two in a perfect inning of relief Wednesday to record his third hold of the season in a win over the Padres.

The former Cleveland starter is adapting well to his role in Atlanta's bullpen, posting a 2.77 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 12:1 K:BB through 13 innings. The team's injury-ravaged bullpen -- five different Atlanta relievers are currently on the injured list -- has pushed Tomlin into a higher-leverage role, but he's held his own by picking up a hold in three of his last four appearances, potentially putting him on the fantasy radar in deeper leagues that utilize the category.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Solid in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin struck out one over two perfect innings of relief in Friday's loss to the Mets.

The veteran right-hander has been used sparingly so far, but Tomlin's 2.45 ERA and 0.55 WHIP in three appearances show he's gotten the job done when required. He'll continue working in a low-leverage role for Atlanta, giving him limited fantasy appeal.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Secures roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin will be on the Braves' Opening Day roster, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Tomlin joined the Braves on a minor-league deal last week after being released by the Brewers. The right-hander fired three scoreless innings in his only spring appearance for Atlanta, and apparently that was enough for the team to include him on its Opening Day roster. Tomlin stumbled to a 6.14 ERA, 5.9 K/9 and 3.2 HR/9 in 70.1 innings last season.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Will get start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin will get the start for the Braves on Saturday, Tim Tucker of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The club will waste no time in taking a first-hand look at its newest acquisition. Tomlin almost certainly won't crack Atlanta's Opening Day roster, but the former Cleveland hurler could at least set himself up for a future opportunity with a solid performance.

Braves' Josh Tomlin: Joins Braves on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin agreed to a minor-league contract with the Braves on Thursday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training.

Tomlin didn't have to wait long to find work after being released by the Brewers on Wednesday. He's likely looking at a long-relief role at best in Atlanta as the team has a number of interesting young starters ahead of him.

Josh Tomlin: Released by Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin was released by the Brewers on Wednesday.

Tomlin has an incredibly low 3.5 percent walk rate over the course of his career, but he's also struck out just 16.3 percent of opposing hitters. With a fastball that has averaged less than 88 mph for three straight seasons, he's best suited for a mop-up role at this stage of his career. The Brewers didn't have innings to offer him, but he could still latch on with a team, probably a rebuilding one.

Brewers' Josh Tomlin: Approaching opt-out deadline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers are expected to make a decision regarding Tomlin in the coming days, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Tomlin's contract apparently includes an opt-out clause that kicks in later in the week. He owns a lackluster 4.80 ERA and 9:2 K:BB through 15 innings this spring, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him part ways with the Brewers in search of another major-league opportunity, should Milwaukee choose to leave him off its 40-man roster.

Brewers' Josh Tomlin: Back on track
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin allowed one earned run over four innings of relief in Friday's spring game against the Padres.

Tomlin was tagged for six earned runs over three innings in a March 3 appearance, but he has been much sharper since, allowing just one hit and a walk over five innings on March 9 before delivering Friday's results. Tomlin is competing for a spot in the Brewers' rotation and is seemingly on the outside looking in, but he certainly put his best foot forward his last two times out.

Brewers' Josh Tomlin: Links up with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Tomlin should compete for a long-relief role during camp. The veteran right-hander struggled as both a starter and reliever in 2018, compiling a 6.14 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 5.9 K/9 across 70.1 innings (nine starts, 23 relief appearances). Tomlin will need to fix his homer issues -- he allowed a whopping 3.2 HR/9 in 2018 -- if he wants to hold a big-league gig next season.

Indians' Josh Tomlin: Not on roster for ALDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin was left off the Indians' roster for the ALDS against Houston, Jordan Bastian of reports.

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering he logged a 6.14 ERA (7.20 FIP) with just 46 strikeouts in 70.1 innings of work this season. After being used primarily as a reliever most of the year, Tomlin started three games in September, but he didn't show enough to be included on the postseason roster.

Indians' Josh Tomlin: Limited in effective start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin allowed one earned run on four hits and no walks while striking out five across 4.2 innings Thursday against the Royals. He did not factor into the decision.

Tomlin pitched on three days rest and was likely to be limited, so it came as little surprise that he was allowed to throw only 74 pitches despite the effective outing. The lone run he surrendered came on a solo home run by Adalberto Mondesi in the third inning. His regular season is likely over with a 6.14 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 70.1 innings.

Indians' Josh Tomlin: Will get start Thursday vs. Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin will start Thursday's game against the Royals, Jordan Bastian of reports.

Tomlin has previously made eight starts for the Tribe this season, but his most recent appearance came in relief Sunday against the Red Sox, when he tossed two scoreless frames to capture the win. Since he'll be pitching on three days' rest Thursday, Tomlin isn't expected to work long in what will more than likely be his final appearance of the regular season. Adam Plutko, who started Sunday but isn't listed among the Tribe's probable pitchers for their four-game series in Kansas City, could be available to eat innings behind Tomlin.

Indians' Josh Tomlin: Claims win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin (2-5) was the pitcher of record in Sunday's 4-3 walk-off victory over the White Sox in 11 innings after tossing two scoreless frames in relief. He yielded one hit and one walk and struck out two in the 31-pitch appearance.

Tomlin had started the series opener Thursday and covered four innings, so his availability out of the bullpen on just two days' rest came as a surprise. Manager Terry Francona's decision to roll with Tomlin in relief likely removes the right-hander from consideration for a start Wednesday against the White Sox, with Shane Bieber now seemingly the top option for the nod that day. Tomlin could rejoin the rotation during the four-game series in Kansas City next weekend with the Indians perhaps inclined not to use their top three starters during those games with the playoffs on the horizon.

Indians' Josh Tomlin: Knocked around in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin pitched four innings in a no-decision Thursday, yielding four runs on eight hits (one home run) while striking out two in the loss to the White Sox.

Tomlin really never found a groove Thursday, allowing six hits and three runs in the first two innings before getting tagged for a solo shot by Omar Narvaez in the third. The 33-year-old now owns a hideous 6.64 ERA across 63.2 innings this season. His spot in the rotation is anything but guaranteed down the stretch.
