The Cleveland Indians are moving starting pitcher Josh Tomlin to the bullpen so that rookie right-hander Adam Plutko can take over the 5th spot in the starting rotation.

Indians manager Terry Francona announced the decision on Sunday, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Paul Hoynes.

The team will recall Plutko, 26, later this week to make what will be his 2nd big league starter.

Tomlin’s move out of the rotation comes as no surprise as he has struggled thus far this season, posting a 7.84 ERA in seven appearances.

Plutko is expected to remain in the 5th starter spot for the time being.
