 Biographical Information
Tomlin had a storybook major league debut for the Indians on July 27, 2010. With a huge media presence in attendance hoping to see the New York Yankees' Alex Rodriguez hit his 600th major league home run, Tomlin stole the spotlight, outpitching CC Sabathia and holding A-Rod hitless over 7 innings of work during which he allowed only 1 run on 3 hits. He was credited with the Indians' 4-1 win for his first major league victory.
Tomlin was the 5th major leaguer since 1919 to pitch 5+ innings in his first 21 games in the majors; the prior hurler to do so was Daisuke Matsuzaka (28 games).
Tomlin made only one major league appearance in 2013, pitching 2 scoreless innings. He had undergone Tommy John surgery in August of 2012 and was not back pitching until the end of 2013, his sole appearance coming on September 12th. He then started 2014 back in the minors to continue his rehabilitation and came back as a major league starting pitcher on May 6th, when he defeated the Minnesota Twins, 4-2, giving up one run over 6 2/3 innings. On June 28th, he pitched a one-hit shutout in defeating the Seattle Mariners, 5-0, striking out a career-high 11 in the process. It was the first one-hitter by an Indians pitcher since Billy Traber had pitched one in 2003.
