Right-hander Josh Tomlin was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with right elbow inflammation. The move was retroactive to Monday and accompanied by the reinstatement of Hernandez to the 25-man roster. Tomlin was a part of the Indians' rotation on Opening Day, however his last four outings came out of the bullpen. In his 16 starts, Tomlin is 5-8 with a 5.72 ERA (58 earned runs in 91 1/3 innings), and has a 6.36 ERA overall. The move also sent Chris Seddon, who started Friday's game against the Red Sox, to the bullpen to keep the relief corps at eight. Seddon tossed 2 1/3 innings on Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits, while striking out two. Angels: Butcher suspended one game
Pitching coach Mike Butcher was suspended one game for leaving the dugout to argue balls and strikes and for "aggressively" arguing with home-plate umpire Mike Estabrook during Sunday's game, Major League Baseball announced on Tuesday. Butcher, also fined an undisclosed amount, served the suspension during Tuesday night's game against the Indians. Butcher jogged out to the field to argue with Estabrook after he was tossed, before being restrained by manager Mike Scioscia. It marked his first ejection since 2008 and his fourth overall. Worth noting
Angels relievers Scott Downs (strained left shoulder) and Jordan Walden (neck and right biceps injuries) continue to progress in their rehab assignments, with both likely returning by the end of the week. Cleveland has held a lead at some point in seven of the club's last 14 losses.
