The Cleveland Indians placed right-hander Josh Tomlin on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, opening up a spot for Roberto Hernandez.
Tomlin is 5-8 with a 6.36 ERA in 21 appearances this year, including 16 starts, and has been troubled by a sore right elbow for a while now.
"It's been a while -- more than a month -- that I've felt something," Tomlin told The Plain Dealer. "I didn't really tell anybody because I thought I could go out there and get outs. Apparently, I couldn't. I feel like I have a pretty high pain tolerance, so I'm not exactly sure what it is. I've pitched through stuff like that for the better part of this year, but there comes a point where you compensate too much."
Tomlin has said the pain is similar to the elbow problems he had last year that ended his season on Aug. 25.
Indians manager Manny Acta told The Beacon Journal that team officials were not informed of the injury until a series against the Orioles between July 20 and 24.
As for Hernandez, he will make his first big-league start in almost a year when he takes the mound Wednesday night against Ervin Santana. Hernandez has missed the entire season and served a three-week suspension after being arrested on Jan. 19 outside the United States consulate in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, for pitching under the name of Fausto Carmona.
