Tomlin will be on the Braves' NLDS roster, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Tomlin beat out Julio Teheran to serve as Atlanta's long reliever. He struck out just 15.9 percent of opposing batters this season but also walked just 2.2 percent, leading to a 3.74 ERA in 79.1 innings.
Tomlin will start Wednesday's game against the Royals, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
He will take the ball to allow Mike Soroka to rest up and get on schedule for the playoff rotation. The last time Tomlin logged more than one inning was when he tossed two frames Sept. 2, so this will be a bullpen game.
