According to Tom Withers of the Associated Press, right-hander Josh Tomlin has lost his arbitration case against the Indians.

Tomlin, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, requested $975,000 and was offered $800,000 from the Indians when arbitration figures were exchanged last month. The 29-year-old had a tough case after missing nearly the entire 2013 season while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery and the three-personal panel of arbitrators ultimately ruled on the side of the team.

There have been three arbitration hearings in MLB so far this winter. The Indians have two victories (with Tomlin and Vinnie Pestano) while right-hander Andrew Cashner won his hearing against the Padres.

    Yep that’s the wrong guy. Josh has a more sinister look about him. Those cold, blue eyes…

    Note to Josh Tomlin and Vinnie Pestano–its kind of hard to ask for more money and win at arbitration when you are injured and didn’t pitch all or most of the year. Just saying….
