Nov. 2 10:22 PM PT11:22 PM MT12:22 AM CT1:22 AM ET1:22 ET5:22 GMT13:22 10:22 PM MST12:22 AM EST12:52 AM VEN9:22 UAE11:22 PM CT-Tomlin gave up a homer in the first and was then undone by some bad defense, ultimately being charged with six runs in 2 1/3 innings in a 9-3 loss to the Cubs that forced Game 7.
Analysis: It's tough to say how things would have played out had Tomlin escaped the first with minimal damage, but this is a disappointing result nonetheless.
Oct. 29 9:29 PM PT10:29 PM MT11:29 PM CT12:29 AM ET0:29 ET4:29 GMT12:29 9:29 PM MST11:29 PM EST11:59 PM VEN8:29 UAE11:29 PM CT-Tomlin delivered in a big way Friday, tossing two-hit ball over 4 2/3 innings in Game 3 of the World Series before the Indians posted a 1-0 victory.
Analysis: With Cleveland down two starting pitchers, Tomlin has come up huge. He's 2-0 with a 1.76 ERA in three playoff starts. Tomlin is lined up to pitch Game 6 of the Series if it gets that far.
Oct. 23 4:35 PM PT5:35 PM MT6:35 PM CT7:35 PM ET19:35 ET23:35 GMT7:35 4:35 PM MST6:35 PM EST7:05 PM VEN3:35 UAE (+1)6:35 PM CT-Indians manager Terry Francona said Trevor Bauer will start Game 2 of the World Series against the Cubs on Wednesday if his cut finger is healed. Otherwise, Tomlin will draw the assignment and Bauer will pitch Friday's Game 3 in Chicago.
Analysis: Bauer sliced his right pinky finger while performing maintenance on one of his drones prior to the ALCS against the Blue Jays. He attempted to pitch in Game 3 but departed in the first inning when blood started pouring out of the cut.
Oct. 14 12:45 PM PT1:45 PM MT2:45 PM CT3:45 PM ET15:45 ET19:45 GMT3:45 12:45 PM MST2:45 PM EST3:15 PM VEN23:45 UAE2:45 PM CT-Tomlin has been moved up to start Saturday's Game 2 of the ALCS after originally scheduled starter Trevor Bauer cut the pinkie finger on his right pitching hand.
Analysis: As a result of the ill-timed injury, Bauer is now slated to start Game 3 when the series moves to Toronto on Monday. Tomlin pitched well in his lone ALDS start, holding Boston to two runs across five-plus innings to earn the victory in Monday's Game 3.
Oct. 7 7:25 PM PT8:25 PM MT9:25 PM CT10:25 PM ET22:25 ET2:25 GMT10:25 7:25 PM MST9:25 PM EST9:55 PM VEN6:25 UAE (+1)9:25 PM CT-Tomlin allowed two runs and four hits with a walk and four strikeouts in five innings, earning the victory at Fenway Park as the Indians completed a three-game sweep in the ALDS.
Analysis: Tomlin, who made his first career playoff appearance, had been 0-2 with a 5.79 ERA in three career starts at Fenway.
Oct. 3 9:09 AM PT10:09 AM MT11:09 AM CT12:09 PM ET12:09 ET16:09 GMT0:09 9:09 AM MST11:09 AM EST11:39 AM VEN20:09 UAE11:09 AM CT-Tomlin pitched well in his final regular-season start, allowing two runs over 7 1/3 innings in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Royals.
Analysis: Tomlin went 2-1 with a 1.69 ERA over his last five games. He figures to be in the back end of the club's playoff rotation.
Sep. 20 7:11 PM PT8:11 PM MT9:11 PM CT10:11 PM ET22:11 ET2:11 GMT10:11 7:11 PM MST9:11 PM EST9:41 PM VEN6:11 UAE (+1)9:11 PM CT-Tomlin gave the Indians a second straight solid start by limiting the Royals to one run over 6 2/3 innings. The right-hander received a no-decision in Cleveland's 2-1 victory.
Analysis: After being demoted to the bullpen following a stretch of five consecutive August losses in which he posted a troubling 10.80 ERA, Tomlin has bounced back by yielding two runs over 11 2/3 innings in two starts since being re-inserted into the rotation. His improvement is good news for an Indians team expected to be without Danny Salazar and Carlos Carrasco for the playoffs.
Sep. 14 8:13 PM PT9:13 PM MT10:13 PM CT11:13 PM ET23:13 ET3:13 GMT11:13 8:13 PM MST10:13 PM EST10:43 PM VEN7:13 UAE (+1)10:13 PM CT-In five innings Wednesday, Tomlin allowed one run on four hits and walked none as he ended a personal five-game losing streak that led to the right-hander being demoted to the bullpen after his last start on Aug. 30.
Analysis: Tomlin won for the first time since July 30, when he was 11-3 with a 3.43 ERA. In six starts in August, the righty had a 11.48 ERA.
Aug. 31 8:14 PM PT9:14 PM MT10:14 PM CT11:14 PM ET23:14 ET3:14 GMT11:14 8:14 PM MST10:14 PM EST10:44 PM VEN7:14 UAE (+1)10:14 PM CT-The Indians will skip Tomlin's next start while trying to figure out what to do next with the struggling right-hander.
Analysis: Tomlin is 0-5 with an 11.48 ERA in his last six starts, and he lasted a career-low 1 2/3 innings on Tuesday. Before that stretch, he was 11-3 with a 3.43 ERA in his first 19 starts.
Aug. 31 10:05 PM PT11:05 PM MT12:05 AM CT1:05 AM ET1:05 ET5:05 GMT13:05 10:05 PM MST12:05 AM EST12:35 AM VEN9:05 UAE12:05 AM CT-Tomlin allowed four runs and seven hits in just 1 2/3 innings Tuesday.

Analysis: A fantasy steal during the season's first half, Tomlin's value has torpedoed in August. The right-hander has lost five straight starts while pitching to a 10.80 ERA and permitting six or more runs in four of those outings. Opponents are hitting .342 with nine homers off him over his rough stretch.

Analysis: The right-hander has given up a major league-leading 29 home runs, including at least one in each of his last 12 starts.

Analysis: Tomlin has given up two runs or less in five of his last six starts. He's 3-1 with a 2.77 ERA over that span. It was only the second loss for the Indians in Tomlin's 12 starts.
