Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 43 – Josh Tomlin

Join Did The Tribe Win Last Night as we count down to Opening Day! Countdown to Opening Day – 43 The Cleveland Indians rode with their Little Cowboy deep into the sunset of the 2016 season. Had it not been for the October heroics of the Indians’ fifth starter Josh Tomlin, Cleveland’s postseason dreams may have more resembled a daydream. With two-fifths of the starting rotation...

Despite all the dingers, Josh Tomlin pitched effectively in 2016

Could his fantastic finish to the regular season and beginning of the playoffs be sustainable next year? Josh Tomlin’s 2016 season began about two weeks after the start of the season. No, Tito did not banish him to Columbus. Tito did not force him into the bullpen either. Instead, a ridiculous string of rain delays during the first week of the season forced the Indians to skip...

Josh Tomlin Thinks Hitting Is Cool

Josh Tomlin will be on the mound for the Indians tonight — and, with the World Series having moved to Wrigley Field, he’ll also be in the batter’s box. The right-hander isn’t complaining. “I think getting to hit is cool,” opined Tomlin. “I enjoy being part of the game as a whole, as opposed to just being a part of it when I’m out there pitching. Being able to impact...

Why Josh Tomlin Gives Up Homers

Right-hander Josh Tomlin starts for Cleveland tonight in Game Three of the World Series. While he does a lot well, he also has a weakness — namely, that he gives up more homers than the average pitcher. It’s possible that, among the explanations you’ll hear regarding that weakness, most will relate either to how it’s because Tomlin lives in the zone or never gives in or something...

Are the Cubs Vulnerable to Strike Throwers?

I might need to prime you for this one first. I don’t know if this is something people are actually talking about, or if I just made this theory up. But it sounds like it could make sense, so let’s go forward. In Game 3, the Indians are throwing Josh Tomlin against Kyle Hendricks and the Cubs, in Chicago.

How Josh Tomlin Beat Two of Baseball’s Best

An injury only hurts a team as much as the replacement lets it. The Dodgers were able to withstand their record-setting number of injuries because of what they had behind the guys who got hurt. Not every team has the luxury of being able to simply plug a Julio Urias or a Brandon McCarthy into the rotation when their top starters go down. And so when Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar...

Cleveland Indians: Analyzing Josh Tomlin's fade

Since early June, Josh Tomlin has fallen from the pseudo-All-Star status he'd attained. What's going on? Back in early June, I wrote a piece about Josh Tomlin’s growth as a pitcher, and specifically his use of a cutter to fool batters. Here, read it. At the time he was having a very strong season -- 3.54 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and much of his 8-1 record came after the Cleveland Indians...
