RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Tomlin missed most of the season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but did make it back for some rehab starts and a brief appearance with the Indians in September. He has heavily relied on pinpoint control and a strong defense behind him in the past, so he can't really afford to have left any of his velocity on the operating table. Tomlin has never carried an xFIP below 4.00 during his time in the big leagues, nor as he pushed his strikeout rate above 5.3 K/9 in any one campaign. He will enter spring training with a chance to earn a spot at the back end of the Indians' rotation, but there is little reason to get excited if he manages to secure a job.

2012

Tomlin was surprisingly effective for the Indians after opening the season as the team's fifth starter, winning 12 games to go along with a 4.25 ERA and a sparkling 1.077 WHIP thanks to a league-leading 1.14 BB/9IP. His excellent control helped him survive a low strikeout rate (4.84 K/9IP) and his long-ball tendencies (24 allowed in his 26 starts) are the only real blemishes. Tomlin experienced elbow soreness that cut his season short in September, but is expected to be ready for the start of spring training. He'll start the season as the team's No. 3 or No. 4 starter, but it will take a lot of things to break right if he's going to have a repeat performance.

2011

Tomlin made a dozen serviceable starts for the Indians after a midseason callup but continued to struggle with the long ball, allowing 10 homers in just 73 innings. It's been an issue in his minor league career as well, and his low strikeout rate (5.3 K/9IP) means a lot of balls are being put in play against him. He'll battle for a rotation spot again this spring.
