Josh Tomlin held the Yankees to one run and two hits over seven innings Thursday to pick up his first win of 2015.

Josh Tomlin pitched well in his return to the Indians' rotation on Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Twins.

Both runs to score against him came via the solo home run, as Eddie Rosario and Chris Herrmann nicked him for back-to-back solo shots in the fifth inning. He held a 4.76 ERA and 1.29 WHIP over 104 innings last season and could be worth a look in deeper AL-only formats. A road start against the Yankees is up next on the schedule as he tries to work his way back into form.
