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.
May 7 - 2:07 AM

Drew Pomeranz fell to 2-2 after allowing four runs -- three earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Monday against the Giants.

There's no shame in getting beat by the Giants offense with the way it's played this year, but Pomeranz made it a little too easy for Buster Posey and company with the three walks and two wild pitches he allowed. He still has a 2.86 ERA for the moment.
Apr 26 - 2:12 AM

Drew Pomeranz allowed just an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings and struck out 10 in defeating the Pirates on Wednesday.

Pomeranz probably would have been sent to the pen at the end of the spring had Brandon Maurer pitched better and he nearly was anyway, but here he is with at 2-1 with a 2.04 ERA and 25 strikeouts through three starts. He's a health risk going forward, but he needs to be owned in mixed leagues.
Apr 21 - 1:25 AM

Drew Pomeranz lost to the Phillies after allowing two runs in six innings and striking out eight on Thursday.

Pomeranz did his job, but the Padres offense didn't have his back in this one. After two starts, Pomeranz has a 3.38 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 11 innings. It looks like he'll be hanging around in the rotation for a while.
Apr 14 - 3:59 PM

Drew Pomeranz struck out seven and earned his first win of the 2016 season against the Rockies.

Pomeranz won a job in the Padres’ rotation, despite a shaky spring training, and the lefty celebrated with a strong start on Saturday in hitter-friendly Coors Field. While he surrendered a pair of earned runs and issued three walks in five innings against the Rockies, he struck out seven and could’ve gone deeper in the game if the Padres wouldn’t have pinch-hit for him during a three-run sixth inning. Pomeranz could be a sneaky source of strikeouts in deeper leagues. He’ll need to sharpen the command before he can be relevant in standard mixed leagues, though.
Apr 9 - 11:40 PM

Drew Pomeranz tossed four shutout innings, striking out four, in Saturday's Cactus League finale against the White Sox.

Pomeranz scattered two hits and a walk in his final turn before the regular season. It was also a nice reward for Padres manager Andy Green's confidence after Green announced on Friday that Pomeranz won the final spot in the team's rotation. The lefty has always held intrigue for his first-round pedigree, and there aren't many better home parks than Petco. There are worse end-game flyers to take.
Apr 2 - 7:22 PM

Padres manager Andy Green announced Friday that Drew Pomeranz has secured a spot in the club's Opening Day rotation.

This move comes as a bit of a surprise as most thought the left-hander would work out of the bullpen. Pitching half of his games at Petco Park and in the pitcher-friendly National League West, he immediately makes a very interesting option in all mixed leagues.
Apr 1 - 7:34 PM

Drew Pomeranz was touched up for six runs over three innings of work against the Royals on Monday.

The left-hander allowed five hits -- including a pair of first-inning homers -- while walking two and striking out three. Pomeranz wants to start and would have some intrigue pitching at Petco Park, but the Padres seem likely to use him in relief initially.
Mar 28 - 7:07 PM

Drew Pomeranz turned in four innings of one-run ball in Wednesday's loss to the White Sox.

Pomeranz allowed just one hit. That one hit resulted in the one run on his line, too, as Avisail Garcia burned him for a solo homer in the fourth inning. He is looking to win a spot at the end of the Padres' rotation for 2016. Last year, Pomeranz made nine starts for the A's and held a 3.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 82/31 K/BB ratio across 86 innings. If he fails to win that rotation gig, the Padres will likely shift him to the bullpen for the coming campaign.
Mar 23 - 7:01 PM

Drew Pomeranz allowed a solo home run over two innings in Saturday's game against the Indians.

The homer by Indians first baseman Jesus Aguilar was the only baserunner Pomeranz allowed on the afternoon. He has a 3.86 ERA this spring in an attempt to win a job in the Padres' starting rotation.
Mar 12 - 9:03 PM

Drew Pomeranz is hoping to land a spot in the Padres' starting rotation.

Pomeranz said he came to the Padres expecting to pitch out of the bullpen but now he's hoping to be a starter. He made his first appearance of the spring Thursday against Seattle, striking out two batters over a scoreless inning of work. The former first-round pick went 2-3 with a 4.63 ERA in nine starts for Oakland last year.
Mar 3 - 5:51 PM

Drew Pomeranz will go back to using a windup this season.

The left-hander threw exclusively out of the stretch last season even when he was in the A's starting rotation. Pomeranz might see a start or two here and there but San Diego's plan is to use him out of the bullpen.
