The Indians added a Josh Tomlin baseball doll to their collection and man is it something

At 79-56 with an eight-game lead in the AL Central entering play on Sunday, the Indians are arguably the best team in the American League. One thing they're inarguably the best at, however, is fashioning dolls of various teammates out of nothing but a baseball, a marker and some yarn.
It all began back in 2015, when the team made this certainly-not-terrifying-at-all Jose Ramirez baseball doll:

The tradition has only grown this season. In June, Carlos Carrascoupdated his Ramirez likeness to include some sunglasses, then crafted another one depicting himself. A drone-inspired Trevor Bauer doll followed a month later. 
But all that ingenuity pales in comparison to their latest creation, unveiled during Sunday's 11-1 win over the Tigers. Behold, it's Cowboy Josh Tomlin:

Tomlin was solid on Sunday, scattering six hits and allowing just one run over 5 2/3 innings, so we hope Cleveland takes the hint and carries a doll of that day's starting pitcher wherever it goes.
