Josh Tomlin's Unusual ERA

Highest ERA: 85+ IP, 1.075 WHIP or lower (1900-2011)
Josh Tomlin (Indians, 2011) 3.95 ERA, 1.056 WHIP
Phil Ortega (Senators, 1966) 3.92, 1.07
Don Mossi (Tigers, 1963) 3.74, 1.035
Ralph Terry (Indians, 1965) 3.69, 1.07, 1.07
LaMarr Hoyt (White Sox, 1983) 3.66, 1.024
Rollie Shelton (Yankees, 1964) 3.61, 1.075
Orlando Pena (Tigers/Indians, 1967) 3.59, 1.04
Curt Schilling (Phillies, 1995) 3.57, 1.052
Bill Faul (Cubs, 1965) 3.54, 1.045

The good news for Josh Tomlin is that most of his ERA troubles stem from 3 starts at the beginning of June, where he allowed 18 ER over 17 IP, and he's has improved since then.  Over his last 2 starts, he's 2-0 with 4 ER over 13 IP.  Even with a 6.60 ERA in June, he's only allowed 2 BB with 20 ER.  It seems likely that his ERA will continue to come down (it was 3.27 after 10 starts, and it's already come down from 4.14 to 3.95).
