Tomlin lasted just 1.2 innings in a no-decision Tuesday versus the Twins. He allowed four runs on seven hits and struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday's 41-pitch outing marked Tomlin's shortest start since 2012. The right-hander gave the Indians four solid months (11-3 with a 3.48 ERA over his first 19 starts), but has been brutal since the beginning of August (0-5 with an 11.48 ERA over six starts). Tomlin's post All-Star performance has been so bad that his place in the rotation in now in jeopardy. Assuming he does make his next start, it will come Monday against the Astros.

Tomlin (11-8) was smacked around for eight runs (seven earned) on six hits and two walks over just 4.1 innings in Thursday's 9-0 loss to Texas.

EDGE Analysis

As has typically been the case, Tomlin struggled with the long ball, serving up his 33rd and 34th of the year. The veteran righty has now given up homers in an insane 14 consecutive starts, and he's allowed multiple homers eight times in that span. In fact, Tomlin's only had two homer-free starts all season. He also has failed to finish five innings on four occasions during his current five-game losing streak.

Tomlin (11-7) allowed six runs on nine hits, struck out five and walked one over 4.1 innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The long ball was Tomlin's problem again on Saturday as it's been all year. He allowed three bombs versus Toronto, which makes it 17 homers yielded in his last 10 starts. Tomlin has allowed a home run in 13 straight outings. During that stretch, he has just a 3-6 record. Overall he is 11-7 with a 4.39 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 101 strikeouts in 141.1 inning this season.

Tomlin (personal) will start Saturday against the Blue Jays, Zack Meisel of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Tomlin will toe the rubber Saturday opposite Aaron Sanchez after spending a few days away attending to a personal matter. It's been a struggle for Tomlin so far in the second half -- he's 2-4 with a 5.84 ERA since the All-Star break after going 9-2 with a 3.51 mark in the first half -- as his home run issues have finally caught up to him.

Tomlin was placed on league's Family Medical Emergency List on Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tomlin can remain on the MLB's Family Medical Emergency List for 3-5 days. Cleveland will play Wednesday's game with 24 players, then activate Danny Salazar from the DL on Thursday to fill the empty roster spot. At this point in time, the club has yet to indicate whether or not Tomlin will pitch his next scheduled start on Saturday.

Tomlin (11-6) took the loss on Monday despite holding the Red Sox to three runs in 7.2 innings. He allowed seven hits, didn't walk a batter, and struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

The strong start was just what the doctor ordered for Tomlin, who had been pounded for 14 runs over his previous two starts. Tomlin has been prone to the home run, allowing at least one in every start since June 9, but still has a respectable 4.14 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. HIs next start will come Saturday against Toronto.

Tomlin (11-5) was shelled in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals. He lasted just four innings, allowing seven runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four.

EDGE Analysis

Tomlin hadn't allowed more than five earned runs in any of first 18 starts this season, but the right-hander has now surrendered seven earned in each of his last two outings. His troubling trend of allowing home runs continued Wednesday as he gave up his major-league leading 27th bomb of the year. Tomlin has served up a longball in 18 of his 20 starts this season, and has been tagged 17 times over his last 11 games. Tomlin's impressive 1.19 WHIP doesn't do much for fantasy owners when 20 percent of the hits allowed leave the yard (27 home runs on 137 total hits). Things won't get much easier next time out when he faces the Red Sox at home Monday.

Tomlin (11-4) gave up seven earned runs on nine hits and two walks over 4.2 innings in Friday's 13-7 loss to the Yankees. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander simply didn't have it Friday and his trouble started right from the onset. Tomlin yielded an RBI groundout to Brian McCann in the opening frame, and the Yankees' backstop came back to blast an RBI double in the third that plated Jacoby Ellsbury. Starlin Castro followed later in th einning with a 369-foot grand slam to right that brought home Mark Teixeira, McCann and Chase Headley, and Gary Sanchez chased Tomlin in the fifth with an RBI double. The seven earned runs were the most given up by the 31-year-old righty all season, while the loss was his third in the last five starts after a 9-1 run to start the season. He'll try to put the forgettable outing behind him when he takes on the Angels next Thursday.

Tomlin (11-3) allowed two runs on six hits, struck out seven and walked two over seven innings in a victory against the Athletics on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander ran into trouble, allowing one run, in the first but after that, he yielded just four hits in the final six innings. Unfortunately one of those hits was a solo homer. Tomlin isn't a strikeout pitcher, but he's been racking up the punchouts lately, as he has 31 strikeouts in the last 31.1 innings. Tomlin has a 3.43 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 87 strikeouts in 120.2 innings. His next start will be Thursday against the Twins.
