Gambling911.com has your Josh Tomlin Daily Fantasy Baseball profile updated May 3, 2016.
Tomlin (3-0, 3.18) is priced at DraftKings at $8200. He collected another win in Minnesota his last start even after allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk in 5.1 innings. He struck out just one batter.
ESPN.com writes of Tomlin: “The soft-tossing righty delivered a 3.02 ERA accompanied by a startling 57:8 K:BB in 65.2 innings last year, but that ridiculous .199 BABIP and 90.2 percent strand rate are impossible to sustain -- particularly when you're essentially a poor man's Phil Hughes.”
