Drew Pomeranz said Saturday that he's open to a long-term contract extension with the Red Sox, but thus far has not talked to the club about it.
Pomeranz will earn $8.5 million this season, his final year of arbitration-eligibility. He posted a stellar 3.32 ERA and 9.0 K/9 across 173 2/3 innings for the Red Sox in 2017. As long as he remains healthy, he should be a viable mid-range starter again in 2018. Jan 20 - 1:55 PM

Red Sox and LHP Drew Pomeranz avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $8.5 million contract.

It's Pomeranz's final year of arbitration eligibility. The left-hander posted a 3.32 ERA across 32 starts for the Red Sox last season.

Drew Pomeranz recorded only six outs Friday versus the Astros, getting charged with four runs.

Pomeranz retired the first two batters of the game, but Carlos Correa followed a Jose Altuve single with a no-doubt home run to left field. He surrendered another longball to George Springer in the third that just barely cleared the wall in right. An Alex Bregman double and Altuve RBI single followed Springer’s blast, and that was it for the lefty. Pomeranz would figure to get another start if the Red Sox manage to advance, but it’s hard to trust him with his late-season velocity drop.

Drew Pomeranz will start Game 2 of the ALDS against the Astros.

Chris Sale will start Game 1, but Red Sox manager John Farrell isn't ready talk about his rotation plans beyond Game 2. The one thing we do know is that David Price isn't an option. Doug Fister is a possibility to get the nod over Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez.

Drew Pomeranz earned his 17th victory of the season on Saturday, limiting the Astros to one run on three hits over six-plus innings.

Pomeranz struck out three and walked two on the afternoon. Both runs that scored came in the seventh inning after Pomeranz has been brilliant in the first six. He finishes the regular season an impressive 17-6 with a 3.32 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 174/69 K/BB ratio across 173 2/3 innings.

Red Sox manager John Farrell has indicated that Drew Pomeranz could be scratched from Saturday's scheduled start if the team clinches the division Friday.

Pomeranz has seen his velocity drop steadily in recent outings, so he could use some extra rest before the postseason. The Red Sox would likely start Johnny Wholestaff if they scratch Pomeranz.

Drew Pomeranz was pounded for five earned runs over just two innings Monday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Pomeranz was nowhere near his usual fastball velocity in this one, which is obviously a big concern with the American League Division Series set to begin next week. Toronto managed seven hits against the 28-year-old left-hander, with Josh Donaldson getting things going on a solo homer in the top of the first. Pomeranz stands 16-6 on the season with a 3.38 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 171/67 K/BB ratio in 167 2/3 total innings.

Drew Pomeranz held the Orioles off the scoreboard for 6 1/3 innings Tuesday but took a no-decision in the Red Sox' 1-0 extra-innings win.

Pomeranz’s velocity was down in this one, but he still limited the Orioles to just five hits and two walks while striking out five over his 6 1/3 scoreless frames. It’s the first time since August 12 that he pitched into the seventh inning. Pomeranz has his ERA down to 3.15, which is the lowest it’s been since after his first start of the season. He gets the Blue Jays next.

Drew Pomeranz yielded one run in six innings Thursday in a victory over the A's.

It's win No. 16 for Pomeranz. He's lost just once in the last three months, while the Red Sox have gone 20-9 in his starts this year.

Drew Pomeranz earned his 15th victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Rays to two runs on two hits over his six frames.

Pomeranz punched out seven on the night while walking two. The only damage against him came on a two-run blast by Jesus Sucre in the fifth inning. He now sports a 15-5 record, 3.35 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 161/61 K/BB ratio over 153 1/3 innings on the season. He'll do battle against the A's his next time out at home on Thursday.

Drew Pomeranz struggled in Saturday's loss to the Yankees, surrendering four runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.

The left-hander struck out five on the afternoon while walking two. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Chase Headley clubbing a solo shot in the second inning and Matt Holliday breaking the game open with a three-run blast in the sixth. He'll try to get back on track when he takes on the Rays on Friday.

Drew Pomeranz gave up three runs over six innings in Monday’s 6-5 victory over the Blue Jays.

Pomeranz was actually behind through six innings before the Red Sox pulled away for good in the top of the seventh. Things could have been worse for the southpaw, as he gave up seven hits while walking five batters. He’s now 14-4 with a 3.23 ERA through 26 starts and hasn’t lost dating all the way back to June 11. Pomeranz will square off against the Yankees this weekend in the Bronx.

Drew Pomeranz blanked the Indians for 5 1/3 innings and struck out nine in taking a victory on Wednesday.

Pomeranz, who left his last start with back spasms, allowed just a pair of singles in this one, though he did walk four. Indians hitters managed a total of four hits against the Red Sox the last two nights, and they didn't even face Chris Sale (they'll do that tomorrow). Pomeranz is now 13-4 with a 3.18 ERA.

Drew Pomeranz (back) said he's ready to pitch Wednesday after throwing his regular between-outings bullpen session Monday.

Barring some sort of setback, Pomeranz will face the Indians on Wednesday.

Drew Pomeranz (back) is expected to make his next scheduled start on Wednesday in Cleveland.

Pomeranz was lifted from his start last Friday due to back spasms, but he's responded well to treatment the last few days. He'll throw a bullpen session Monday before officially being cleared for Wednesday if all goes well.
