Drew Pomeranz blanked the Phillies over five innings but took a no-decision on Saturday as the Athletics suffered a loss.
Pomeranz was making a spot start in place of Jason Hammel and the results were good: the lefty allowed just one hit while walking two and striking out six. Pomeranz has been solid when called upon by the A's, as he has a 2.35 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 64/26 K/BB ratio in 10 starts and 10 relief appearances this season. He isn't expected to start again before the regular season expires. Sat, Sep 20, 2014 07:19:00 PM

Drew Pomeranz will make a spot start on Saturday versus the Phillies.

He's filling in for Jason Hammel, who will be away to attend the birth of his child. Pomeranz has put up a 2.85 ERA in nine starts this season and isn't a bad streaming option this weekend.

Athletics recalled LHP Drew Pomeranz from Low-A Beloit.

Pomeranz was dominant in a spot start last Wednesday against the Astros, striking out seven batters and allowing just one (unearned) run over 5 1/3 innings. He will pitch in long relief initially for the A's but could be an option for another start later this month.

Athletics optioned LHP Drew Pomeranz to Low-A Beloit.

Pomeranz was sharp in a spot start against the Astros on Wednesday, striking out seven batters and allowed only an unearned run over 5 1/3 innings. He'll likely return as a long reliever when rosters expand in September.

Drew Pomeranz allowed just an unearned run over 5 1/3 innings and struck out seven against the Astros on Wednesday.

It wasn't enough to get Pomeranz a win, but it was a performance that could earn him more starts in September, depending on how things go with Jason Hammel. He'll probably be optioned back to Triple-A now, but he'll be worth playing in mixed leagues if he's needed again.

Athletics recalled LHP Drew Pomeranz from Triple-A Sacramento.

Pomeranz will start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros. He had a strong 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being demoted in July and makes for a good fantasy streamer in Houston.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin confirmed Monday that Drew Pomeranz will be recalled to start on Wednesday versus the Astros.

The A's will use a sixth starter for one turn in order to set up the top four of their starting rotation for a big four-game weekend set in Anaheim. Pomeranz held a 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being bumped to Triple-A Sacramento in July by the Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija trade. He makes for a decent fantasy streamer versus the Astros.

Drew Pomeranz is likely to start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros.

The A's will use a sixth starter this week in Houston to line up the top four of their starting rotation for a big four-game weekend set in Anaheim. Pomeranz had a cool 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being bumped to Triple-A Sacramento in July by the Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija trade. He should make for a decent fantasy streamer versus the light-hitting 'Stros.

The Athletics are considering using Drew Pomeranz or Jesse Chavez to make a spot start next week.

The idea would be to use a sixth starter for one turn in order to line up their four best starters for the August 28-31 series versus the Angels. Both Pomeranz and Chavez have pitched well when in the A's rotation this season but were booted when the club acquired Jeff Samardzija, Jason Hammel and Jon Lester.

Athletics activated LHP Drew Pomeranz from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

Pomeranz made a rehab start Saturday, as his fractured right hand is no longer an issue. However, he's no longer needed in the rotation following the addition of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. The lefty will represent depth at Triple-A.

Drew Pomeranz (hand) allowed one run over four innings Saturday in his rehab debut at Triple-A Sacramento.

He struck out seven, walked none, and yielded just one hit -- a solo home run. The left-hander is expected to remain at Sacramento when he's deemed healthy as an emergency option for the Oakland rotation. He's been out since June 17 with a broken right hand.
Sat, Jul 12, 2014 11:40:00 PM

Drew Pomeranz (hand) is likely to be optioned to Triple-A Sacramento when he's ready to return from the disabled list.

The A's no longer have a need in the rotation following the addition of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, and they'd rather keep Pomeranz stretched out at Triple-A rather than put him in the bullpen. It's also possible the club could use him as trade bait in an effort to add second base help. The lefty is nearly ready for a rehab assignment.

Drew Pomeranz (hand) will try to play catch Monday.

Pomeranz has been throwing while on the disabled list, but the fracture of his right (non-throwing) had has left him unable to play catch. However, an MRI has revealed that the healing is going well, so he'll try using a glove Monday. The expectation is that Pomeranz will move to the bullpen once healthy.

Drew Pomeranz (hand) threw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Pomeranz didn't wear a glove during the session, as his hand hasn't healed enough for him to catch the ball yet. He's been able to throw regularly since landing on the DL, so lost arm strength shouldn't be an issue. However, A's manager Bob Melvin said the lefty is still likely to need 1-2 rehab starts before returning.

Athletics placed LHP Drew Pomeranz on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right hand.

It's not yet clear how long he will be out. Pomeranz was shelled for eight runs (seven earned) over 3 2/3 innings Monday in the Athletics' loss to the Rangers. Brad Mills is expected to join Oakland's rotation this week.
