Josh Tomlin, Indians argue salary arbitration case

Posted: Updated:

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Josh Tomlin and Cleveland have argued their salary arbitration case, with the pitcher asking for $975,000 and the Indians arguing for $800,000.

Tomlin, a 29-year-old right-hander, had elbow ligament-replacement surgery in August 2012 and returned to make one big league appearance last season, pitching two scoreless innings at the Chicago White Sox on Sept. 12. He made $501,800 last year.

Tomlin's case was heard Friday by arbitrators John Sands, Dennis Archer and Marlene Gold. A decision is expected Saturday.

Cleveland defeated pitcher Vinnie Pestano last weekend in the Indians' first arbitration hearing since 1991. Indians right-hander Justin Masterson is one of seven players left in arbitration from among the 146 who filed last month, and hearings are scheduled through Feb. 20.

Others still slated for hearings include Atlanta closer Craig Kimbrel, Boston left-hander Andrew Miller, Cincinnati right-hander Homer Bailey, Oakland outfielder Josh Reddick, San Francisco first baseman Brandon Belt and Seattle first baseman Justin Smoak.

Texas and first baseman Mitch Moreland agreed Friday to a $2.65 million, one-year deal.
