Drew Pomeranz took a loss against the Rays after allowing two runs and striking out 11 in six-plus innings.
Working in a 1-1 game, Pomeranz gave up a single and an RBI double to open the seventh before being lifted. The Red Sox went on to lose 2-1. It's still worth wondering if Pomeranz will fade down the stretch as his innings count continues to build, but he's been very good lately after a rough first three starts for the Red Sox.

Drew Pomeranz held the Tigers to just one run on four hits while striking out three in five innings to earn a win in the Red Sox' 3-2 victory.

He gave up four hits and did not walk anyone. The lone run he allowed was a James McCann solo homer. The win gets him over the .500 mark at 10-9 with a stellar 2.95 ERA. He struggled early in his Red Sox tenure but has righted the ship in his last four starts. He has a nice date with the Rays next on the docket.
Aug 21 - 1:27 AM

Drew Pomeranz limited the Indians to two runs over 7 2/3 innings Monday for his ninth win of 2016.

Pomeranz scattered five hits and two walks over those 7 2/3 frames, striking out six. He gave up a solo homer to Rajai Davis in the bottom of the fourth inning and then Davis smacked an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth, but that was all the offense Cleveland could muster in the overcast afternoon tilt at Progressive Field. Pomeranz will carry a sharp 2.99 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Tigers.
Aug 15 - 4:21 PM

Drew Pomeranz pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed one run Wednesday in a no-decision against the Yankees.

Pomeranz left with a lead, but it wasn't nearly enough on an off night for the Red Sox bullpen. Pomeranz still hasn't completed more than six innings in any of his five starts for the Red Sox, but he has been effective in three of his outings. He's 8-9 with a 3.03 ERA overall.
Aug 10 - 11:48 PM

Drew Pomeranz struggled with his control in Thursday's no-decision against the Mariners, walking six and allowing two runs over six innings.

Pomeranz walked six, but he at least managed to keep the hits down, allowing four over his six frames of work. He finished the evening having thrown 105 pitches (60 strikes). Since coming over to the Red Sox from the Padres in a mid-July trade, Pomeranz has played Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In two of his four starts, he has coughed up a combined total of 10 runs on 14 hits over 8 1/3 innings. His other two starts have seen him surrender just four runs on eight hits over 12 innings. He will look to pitch more consistently in a home showdown with the rival Yankees next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 5 - 2:00 AM

Drew Pomeranz was smacked around for five runs in 5 1/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

He surrendered six hits and walked two while fanning four. His record falls under the .500 mark at 8-9. It was the second time he has been bombed in his three starts since being traded to the Red Sox. He has 130 strikeouts in 116 1/3 innings with a 3.09 ERA. He remains a strong fantasy option moving forward.

Drew Pomeranz pitched well but took a loss Monday, holding the Tigers to two runs over six frames while striking out seven.

Pomeranz was in the midst of a gem before Jose Iglesias took him over the Green Monster with a two-run shot in the sixth inning. He gave up just four hits and walk two on the night to go along with his seven punchouts. It was obviously a major step forward after Pomeranz was knocked around in his first outing for Boston. He'll get the Angels over the weekend.
Jul 25 - 11:46 PM

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.

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.
Jul 14 - 6:12 PM

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.
Jul 13 - 7:19 PM

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.
Jul 12 - 12:58 PM

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.
