Tomlin placed on 15-day DL
ANAHEIM -- The Indians placed right-handed pitcher Josh Tomlin on the 15-day DL Tuesday with right elbow inflammation. The move was retroactive to Monday and was accompanied by the reinstatement of Roberto Hernandez to the 25-man roster prior to his anticipated Wednesday start.

Tomlin was a part of the Indians' rotation on Opening Day, though his last four outings came out of the bullpen. In his 16 starts, Tomlin is 5-8 with a 5.72 ERA (58 earned runs in 91 1/3 innings), and has a 6.36 ERA overall. This is his second stint on the disabled list this year; his first was from May 12-27 with a right wrist issue.

Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona, will start Wednesday. Manager Manny Acta said that Chris Seddon, who started Friday against the Red Sox, is now in the bullpen in order to keep the Indians' relief corps at eight.
