Josh Tomlin was placed on the disabled list today with right elbow inflammation. In his place, Roberto Hernandez will be called up for tomorrow's start. While this could be a phantom injury that was made up for a little roster flexibility, there is a good chance this is something much more serious. Tomlin has struggled all season in ways he never has before in his career. This could very well have to do with chronic elbow pain that has forced him to change his delivery. By placing him on the DL, the Indians will be able to give Tomlin some time to rest his arm without having to worry about pitching from the bullpen without notice on any particular day. Tomlin could be a very important part of the Indians rotation next season if he can get through the issues he had this season, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to shut him down officially for the rest of the season.
