Ben Tate isn't worried about any competition for the starting job from rookie Terrance West.
While Tate can say that all he wants, he should definitely be concerned by West's abilities. Not only that, but Tate has taken his fair share of poundings at the NFL level and has a bit of an injury history as well. While the starting job sits in his hands right now, West will be close by and ready to jump in when needed.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Indians optioned P Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.
Tomlin has some upside if he can repeat his 8.13 K/9 from last season, but home runs will likely always be an issue. Tomlin has allowed 1.41 HR/9 over his big league career, far too high for him to be a consistent fantasy producer. He will almost certainly be in the rotation at some point and could even get the call up before Danny Salazar even though Salazar has far more upside for fantasy. Analysis: Steve Pimental
