Josh Tomlin struggles in loss |

I’d guess most fans aren’t interested in seeing Josh Tomlin start games for the Indians anymore. It certainly has been a rough start. From Jordan Bastian:

In a 10-4 loss to the Mariners, Tomlin surrendered six runs and a pair of home runs, sending Cleveland to its third loss in the four-game set with Seattle. It marked the third time in four starts this season that the right-hander gave up at least five runs and made Tomlin the first Major League pitcher to yield 10 home runs this season.

Indians manager Terry Francona continues to trust, and hope, that Tomlin will sort things out.

”If you run too quick from guys, you don’t get the rewards,” Francona said. “Now I understand, at some point, maybe you make changes. But I think if you rush to do that, you can make some mistakes.”
