Drew Pomeranz made his first start with the Red Sox on Wednesday and it wasn't pretty as he gave up five runs in only three innings.
The Red Sox pulled out the victory but Pomeranz didn't stick around long enough to qualify for the win. He struck out four batters and walked two while giving up eight hits, including two home runs. He now has a 2.83 ERA with 119 strikeouts and 43 walks in 105 innings. He no longer has the luxury of pitching in the safety of Petco Park, but he will have the powerful Red Sox offense to save his bacon on off days like this one. Jul 20 - 11:39 PM

Red Sox acquired LHP Drew Pomeranz from the Padres for RHP Anderson Espinoza.

The Padres and Red Sox have been trade partners before, teaming up on the Craig Kimbrel deal last offseason. After beating around the bush with trades for Aaron Hill and Brad Ziegler, Sox president Dave Dombrowski finally buckled down and addressed Boston's biggest need by adding a starting pitcher. Pomeranz was an All-Star for the Padres in the first half, notching a steady 2.47 ERA over 17 outings while sporting an impressive 1.06 WHIP. Boston's rotation now features Pomeranz, David Price, Steven Wright, Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez. The 27-year-old is under team control through 2018. If Pomeranz pitches the way he did in San Diego over the last few months, the Red Sox will have a good chance to contend in the AL East.

The San Diego Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports that "about 10 teams" have asked the Padres about the availability of Drew Pomeranz.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal relayed on Tuesday that the Rangers were showing interest in Pomeranz. On that front, Lin notes that the Padres could be eyeing the versatile Jurickson Profar as a return, though they would probably need a bigger package than the pitcher alone if they wanted to swing for that deal. Pomeranz made it to Tuesday's All-Star Game on the strength of a 2.47 ERA and 115/41 K/BB ratio (102 innings). Of note for any team considering a trade for the 27-year-old southpaw -- he has already surpassed his previous career-high for innings pitched. Prior to the 2016 season, he had never thrown more than 96 2/3 innings.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers are interested in Padres left-hander Drew Pomeranz.

Rosenthal writes that the Rangers have done background work on Pomeranz and have checked on most of the available pitching in advance of the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline. The 27-year-old has emerged as a significant trade chip for San Diego after posting a 2.47 ERA and 115/41 K/BB ratio over 102 innings during the first half. He's under team control through 2018, so the Padres will require a major haul to part with him. The Rangers need rotation help and have the prospects to get a deal done.

Drew Pomeranz was fantastic in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Dodgers, tossing seven innings of two-hit, shutout ball.

Pomeranz struck out six and walked two. Trayce Thompson managed a double and Howie Kendrick a single against him, but that was it in the hit column for the Dodgers during Pomeranz's seven innings of work. The 27-year-old southpaw has put it all together during the first half of the season and can rest easy during the All-Star break knowing that he has a 2.47 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 115/41 K/BB ratio (102 innings) waiting for him when regular season play resumes in mid-July.
Jul 8 - 12:59 AM

Drew Pomeranz was forced to settle for a no-decision despite allowing only one run in seven innings against the Yankees on Saturday.

He struck out seven without walking anybody. He deserved a win but his Padres teammates couldn't get much going versus Ivan Nova of the Yankees. Pomeranz has been fantastic in his first year with the Friars. He has a 2.65 ERA after sixteen starts. He has fanned 109 batters in 95 innings.
Jul 3 - 1:14 AM

Drew Pomeranz threw seven scoreless innings, allowing just three hits, to lead the Padres to a 3-0 victory over the Reds on Saturday.

Pomeranz yielded a double and two singles on the afternoon, walking just one while striking out six. He also helped himself at the plate, hitting his first home run of the year and collecting two RBI. Pitching is what he's best at, though, and the 27-year-old is now 7-7 with a 2.76 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 102/39 K/BB ratio over 88 innings of work. He'll try to continue his breakout first half Saturday against the Yankees.
Jun 25 - 8:12 PM

Drew Pomeranz earned his sixth victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Nationals to three runs on six hits over his six frames.

Pomeranz fanned seven on the afternoon and issued just one free pass. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Michael Taylor belting a pair of solo homers and Danny Espinosa adding one of his own. He has been outstanding in the Padres rotation this season, registering a 3.00 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 96/38 K/BB ratio in 81 innings. He'll take on the Reds at home his next time out on Saturday.
Jun 19 - 10:00 PM

Drew Pomeranz struggled in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins, walking five and allowing five runs on five hits over five innings.

Five appeared to be the number of the night, though Pomeranz screwed up the synergy by striking out six. A five-run first inning by the Marlins proved to be his undoing, with a Jeff Mathis grand slam accounting for most of the damage. Even with this less-than-desirable outing in the books, Pomeranz still holds a respectable 2.88 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 89/37 K/BB ratio over 75 innings. A home start against the Nationals shows next on his schedule.
Jun 15 - 1:15 AM

Drew Pomeranz took the loss in Wednesday's showdown with the Braves, yielding three runs on nine hits over five innings.

Pomeranz struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. He allowed two runs in the first inning and one in the fourth (on an RBI single by Julio Teheran no less). Through 12 starts covering 70 innings, the 27-year-old southpaw holds a 2.44 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 83/32 K/BB ratio. A home start against the Marlins shows next on his schedule.
Jun 8 - 6:47 PM

Drew Pomeranz struck out eight in seven innings and combined with two relievers on a two-hit shutout of the Rockies on Friday.

Pomeranz rebounded from his worst outing of the year with perhaps it's best. This marks the fourth time in six starts that he's gone without allowing a run. Only Jake Arrieta, with five, has had more starts with zero runs allowed this year.
Jun 4 - 1:19 AM

Drew Pomeranz surrendered six earned runs over five innings Sunday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

It was the worst start of the season for Pomeranz, who entered the outing with a 1.70 ERA and left it with his ERA at 2.48. He struck out nine, but the Diamondbacks smacked five hits against him and drew four walks. Pomeranz will try to get back on the right track next time out against the Rockies.
May 29 - 6:56 PM

Drew Pomeranz blanked the Giants for seven innings in a no-decision Monday.

Pomeranz deserves much better than a 4-4 record for his performance so far. He's sporting a 1.70 ERA in nine starts, with 60 strikeouts in 53 innings. That's pretty good for a guy who was acquired for two players the Padres were thinking of non-tendering and who very nearly didn't make the rotation out of spring training.
May 24 - 1:23 AM

Drew Pomeranz fanned 10 while shutting out the Cubs for six innings in the Padres' 1-0 victory Wednesday.

Lo and behold, the Padres swept the Cubs in a doubleheader, sending Chicago to its first back-to-back losses of the year. Pomeranz allowed just three hits and walked three in improving to 4-3 with a 1.80 ERA. Meanwhile, the guy he could have started over in the Oakland rotation, Eric Surkamp, fell to 0-3 with a 6.55 ERA tonight. But at least the A's have Yonder Alonso.
May 11 - 11:07 PM

Drew Pomeranz allowed one hit over five innings and combined with four relievers on a shutout of the Mets on Friday.

Pomeranz needed 98 pitches to get his 15 outs, so he wasn't going to work deep into this one. Of course, pitch efficiency has always been an issue for him. Still, he's been awfully effective this year, with a 2.12 ERA in six starts. The A's surely wish they had him back right about now.
