Tomlin gave up five runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- while striking out five over 4.2 innings but escaped with a no-decision in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The long ball continues to be an issue for Tomlin, who has a 6.27 ERA and 2.4 HR/9 over his last seven starts. He'll try to turn things around Sunday at home against the Twins.

Tomlin (4-8) gave up four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings in a win over the Dodgers on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

While he did give up two long balls, this was a strong bounce-back effort overall for Tomlin, who was knocked around for nine hits in just 2.2 innings his last time out. There is little strikeout upside with Tomlin -- the seven strikeouts Thursday matched a season high -- but the right-hander has been good at limiting the free passes. His low strand rate and high opponents' BABIP suggest bad luck is partially to blame for his ERA still sitting up at 5.83.

Tomlin (3-8) was clobbered over 2.2 innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on nine hits in Saturday's loss against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Tomlin didn't have his best stuff Saturday, leading manager Terry Francona to open the Tribe's bullpen after just 54 pitches. It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride for fantasy owners this season, but overall, Tomlin has been better than his 5.73 ERA suggests. Before Saturday's game, the righty managed six quality starts in nine outings, including a complete-game victory to close out May. He'll look to get back on track Thursday at home against the Dodgers.

Tomlin will have his next start pushed back to Saturday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Rain interfered with Trevor Bauer's turn Sunday, so manager Terry Francona decided to shuffle the rotation for the upcoming week. Bauer will now get the intimidating assignment of pitching in Coors Field, while Tomlin draws a cozy matchup in Chicago. Carlos Carrasco will be bumped from Saturday to Sunday in a corresponding move.

Tomlin will make his next start on the road Wednesday against the Rockies, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With three days off during the week -- and the prospect of Danny Salazar getting another crack at the rotation -- Tomlin's next start was up in the air until now. Tuesday's game at Mile High isn't the best matchup for the right-hander sporting a 5.54 ERA and 1.3 HR/9.

Tomlin (3-7) gave up three runs on seven hits over 7.1 innings while striking out five in Friday's 4-0 loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander began June in much the same way he finished up May and Tomlin now has a 3.60 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 27:1 K:BB in 40 innings over his last six trips to the mound with four quality starts, but keep in mind three of those came against a Kansas City offense that ranks 28th in the league in wOBA against righties. At least he's taken advantage of his exploitable matchups. Cleveland has three of the next 10 days off so Tomlin could get his turn skipped, but if not he'll be on track to take on the White Sox at home Friday -- one of the two two teams in baseball worse than the Royals against right-handed pitchers.

After a horrid opening month of 2017, Tomlin managed a 3.58 ERA and 0.98 WHIP over 32.2 innings in May.

EDGE Analysis

Unfortunately for Tomlin's owners, his improved performance led to just a single win over five starts during the month. However, outside of that category, the right-hander looked nothing like the pitcher that posted an 8.87 ERA and 1.76 WHIP during April's five outings. Opposed to the .362 batting average opposing hitters racked up the previous month, Tomlin managed a strong .250 BAA in May while posting an impressive 22:1 K:BB during the five-game stretch. Overall this year, the 32-year-old has really struggled to limit damage, as evidenced by his AL-worst 58.9 percent strand rate. Based on Tomlin's respectable 3.76 FIP, one would assume his May performance, opposed to April's, is more indicative of what owners can expect as the season rolls along.

Tomlin (3-6) allowed one run on six hits while striking out three batters over nine innings during Sunday's win over Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

The gem cut Tomlin's ERA down to 5.79 from the 6.70 mark he entered with, and his 3.93 FIP suggests there will probably be better fantasy results ahead. He can be a serviceable asset to utilize in favorable matchups, and Sunday's outing was encouraging. Still, it's probably wise to keep expectations in check after his rocky start to 2017. Tomlin lines up to face the Royals again in his next start.

Tomlin (2-6) allowed five runs -- four earned -- on nine hits while striking out four batters over 6.1 innings during Monday's loss to Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

After a two-outing stretch with just two runs allowed over 15 innings, Tomlin has now surrendered 10 earned runs through 8.2 innings in his past two outings. The veteran sports a disastrous 6.70 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 6.9 K/9 for the campaign, and considering Cleveland has championship aspirations, Tomlin's rotation leash has to be shorter than ever. He projects to face Kansas City in his next start.

Tomlin (2-5) allowed six runs on seven hits while striking out five batters over just 2.1 innings during Wednesday's loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

This was a discouraging outing from Tomlin. He posted an 8.87 ERA and 1.76 WHIP through his first five starts of the season, but then allowed just two runs through 15 innings over his previous two outings entering Wednesday. It's probably best to stick with a wait-and-see stance until Tomlin proves he's fully turned it around on the hill. A road start at Cincinnati is up next for the 32-year-old righty.
