The Braves gave Josh Tomlin a role with few expectations, and he lived up to them. Pitching mostly in long relief, Tomlin got 4 outs or more in 25 of his 50 relief appearances. He put up a 3.74 ERA, and had a 1.122 WHIP, largely fueled by walking only 7 batters in his 79 1/3 innings. He allowed 82 hits and struck out 51.
Tomlin was signed in March after spending 9 seasons in Cleveland and a failed Spring tryout with the Brewers. Josh was mostly a starter in Cleveland, and he led the A.
