Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports free agent RHP Josh Tomlin is resigning with the Braves on a one-year, $1.25 million deal.
Rosenthal adds that the deal includes a $1.25 million club option for 2022. The 36-year-old pitched in 17 games for the Braves this year, posting a 4.76 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP.
Braves pitcher Josh Tomlin allowed five earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two over four innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Friday.
Tomlin has been forced into the starting rotation for an Atlanta team that is dealing with a number of injuries, and the results have been pretty much as expected for the 35-year-old. He has avoided complete disasters but has generally been a below-average starter. If he makes another start, it will likely come against the Orioles in Baltimore.
Braves starter Josh Tomlin allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out one over 4 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.
Three of the runs allowed by Tomlin on Saturday came via a three-run home run off the bat of Rhys Hoskins. Tomlin has now allowed seven earned runs over his last two starts combined, both losses to the Phillies. He'll take a 4.37 ERA into his next start against the Red Sox.
Braves pitcher Josh Tomlin allowed four earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five over three innings in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.
Tomlin is still getting stretched out as he attempts to fill in as a starter for a depleted Atlanta rotation, and it didn't help that he allowed three home runs on Sunday. His next start is scheduled to come against this same Phillies squad in Philadelphia, and he isn't someone you should stream or rely on in any format.
Braves pitcher Josh Tomlin allowed two earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out two over four innings in a no-decision against the Nationals Tuesday.
With the Atlanta rotation in disarray, Tomlin made a spot start against the Nationals on Tuesday and held up about as well as could be expected. If he makes another start, it will likely come against either the Phillies or Yankees at home.
