Josh Tomlin P CLE 3 days ago

Tomlin was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.

Tomlin was a candidate to fill one of two open rotation spots, but the Indians will send him to Triple-A and go forth with Zach McAllister and T.J. House. Tomlin is a leading candidate to be called up at some point this season after tossing 104.0 innings (25 appearances) for the Indians in 2014.

Tomlin allowed nine hits and two runs in four-plus innings Wednesday.

Tomlin's rotation bid got a slight boost with Shawn Marcum and Bruce Chen removed from the equation but he's still third behind Zach McAllister and Danny Salazar in what seems to be a three-way battle for the last spot. He seems likely ticketed to Triple-A to start the season at this point.

Tomlin won't throw for a few more days after an ultrasound revealed inflammation around the bursa sac on the AC joint in his shoulder, MLB.com reports. "I just think it makes sense now, as opposed to maybe when he gets stretched out to six innings, to take a blow, because this is something we can knock out and then he's good to go," manager Terry Francona said.

Tomlin should have plenty of time to work his way back into the battle for the fifth starter spot if he's able to put this behind him in the coming days.

Tomlin has his scheduled appearance Sunday pushed back a couple of days due to a sore shoulder, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "We're going to give him two or three days. He could very well pitch through it with no ramifications, but I don't think anyone thinks that makes a lot of sense," manager Terry Francona said.

Tomlin's in camp looking to emerge from a crowded pack to grab the fifth spot in the Cleveland rotation. His balky shoulder shouldn't impact his chances in a negative way if he can get back on the mound as planned later this week.
