It could be that very rich soil is causing the stems to grow too rapidly, which can cause splitting. If this is the case, the plant will recover and improve as time goes on.

The other possibility is the tomato has Pith Necrosis. This article can explain more about it and how to treat it:http://u.osu.edu/vegetablediseasefacts/tomato-diseases/tomato-pith-necrosis/
