Love this! Exact type of formerly solid pitcher that this team should take a chance on. Hopefully they sign a couple more of these types.

Rare pitcher that has given up more home runs than walks.

Doesn’t strike anybody out and gives up a ton of home runs, but doesn’t walk many people at all. They must of saw something they want to try with him that could help him be successful. Possibly an insurance bullpen arm?

We have a guy already on this roster making more money in Chase Anderson. But really like this type of Move for the Brewers and like to see at least one more in that way like James Shields would be a nice addition. Still will not mike signing a FA arm like Dallas .

I saw Stearns today, he looked like he was up to something [smile]. BTW if you haven’t had the pleasure the guy is absolutely top notch and very personable (in person). No tidbits unfortunately

I have been a fan of Josh Tomlin for years. To start, he is a gamer. He will get every ounce he can out his body at all times. Unfortunately in the last year plus, that was the question - was he healthy? As his velocity slipped, his pitches were more hit-able and a number traveled very far. If you wonder about his stuff, consider his performance in the 2016 WS. Yes he was light up in gm 6 (he was also victimized by some poor OF D that game) but also consider his start in gm 3 in Chicago.. All in all very serviceable player (when healthy).

Tomlin is a better than expected athlete and I often wondered why Tito & other Tribe managers didn't use him in PH or PR roles on his off days to lengthen the bench. A little known tidbit, while in college, Josh played SS on the days he wasn't pitching. Normally that wouldn't seem like much but the SS when Josh pitched in college was Troy Tulo --- yeah that guy now with the Yankees.

Tomlin worked out at Driveline this offseason. Kyle Boddy tweeted out that "he was able to pick up different pitches and the ability to spin a ball differently rather quickly." Probably a Cam Castro connection/recommendation there.

Tomlin is horrible and getting worse. Last year alone he allowed 25 HRs in just 70 IPs. Velocity is getting worse, location stinks, and he allows a ton of hits. He'll get bombed in AAA. Nothing lost by Stearns since it's a minor lg. contract with little risk.

So many people said the same thing about Miley last year. Goes to show that we know nothing.

Does he really need to be ambulatory to be up to something? [wink]

Guys, everyone knows Stearns does advanced statistical analysis while he's sleeping.

josh tomlin appears to have two minor league options left, but has spent time optioned to the minor leagues during three different seasons. he appears to have enough major league service time to refuse the optional assignment, which would void his contract and make him a free agent.

he is the 15th non-roster invitee in 2019 camp.
