One of probably a few more meh signings. Most of these don't make the MLB roster, every so often you get a Miley or Aguilar though. No risk, potentially high reward.

Between Tomlin and Matt Albers, Brewers will have 2 guys in camp that allowed 35 HR in 105 innings combined in 2018. I can see hitters fighting to take BP off these two in Arizona.

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?


It sounds like throws strikes consistently but has really hittable stuff...?

That's a bad combination... if he doesn't learn to risk nibbling at the corners, he doesn't have much of a future in the game...

This is the same type of signing Miley was last year - a guy with a good mlb track record years ago who has struggled recently, prompting him to try to retool his pitch repertoire in hopes of remaining a big leaguer. Boom or bust type move with zero longterm risk...why not?

I don't know if I'd say Tomlin has ever had a "good mlb track record". He's only had an ERA+ over 100 twice in 8 seasons, 143 in 2015 and 103 in 2016. It's at 88 for his career. He looks like he does a decent job of limiting baserunners, he's got a very low BB/9 of 1.3 for his career, and his WHIP's reflect that as they're generally around 1.2ish. But his k rate is pretty low at 6.1 per 9. I know nothing about his repertoire but if working at driveline has increased his velocity and sharpened his pitches leading to a few more K's, then couple that with the Brewers great defense and maybe he can put together a good season.

Well to be fair Miley only had 2 seasons with an ERA+ over 100 going into last season so not much difference. I do think Miley had shown some upside in his peripherals going into the season while Tomlin has shown mostly that he is done the last few years.
