Given the Indians' constantly shifting rotation, Tomlin could be on his last chance to save his spot at the big league level. The righty gave up four earned runs in 4 1/3 innings against Detroit on Sunday.

Career stats

Ventura had command issues on Sunday at Boston and was banged for six runs in 4 1/3 innings. He walked four and didn't have a strikeout for the first time in his big league career. So he's still 12 shy of the 100-strikeout mark.
