Aceves WL 1-0 ERA 5.40 IP 10.0 H 10 R 6 ER 6
Geise WL 0-1 ERA 5.84 IP 12.1 H 15 R 8 ER 8
Tomko WL 0-1 ERA 1.59 IP 11.1 H 8 R 2 ER 2
So far, its clearly Tomko in a landslide. However, many MLB players are slowly filtering back from the WBC so the final 2 weeks of spring training could be decisive.
Tomko has always been a league average pitcher at best. His stuff is good, he has a fastball and sinker that both run in the low-90′s and an underrated change-up plus a good curve. But his mental toughness has always been questioned, which is especially troubling coming to New York. He tends to be erratic and can lose the strike zone completely at times. I’m also not sure that he’ll fare any better as a reliever, his 07/08 splits show that he tends to get better as the game goes on, though those numbers could be skewed from nights where he simply didn’t have it. But looking at his Inning, Leverage and Role splits I see nothing to lead me to believe he’ll be any more effective as a reliever than he was as a starter. If he does make the team, I suspect his leash will be short, as will his stay here if he doesn’t perform.
