Drew Pomeranz limited the Rays to one run over five innings in a 2-1 victory on Friday.

The only run scored on a Mikie Mahtook homer in the second inning. Pomeranz has now allowed 14 homers in just 67 1/3 innings with the Red Sox. Still, Friday was a step forward for him. He gave up four hits without walking a batter and struck out four. There’s some concern over his career-high workload this season, so it’s unclear when he’ll start next.

Drew Pomeranz is on track to make his next scheduled start Friday against the Rays.

Red Sox manager John Farrell acknowledged that the team is trying to determine if Pomeranz's workload has impacted his command, but they aren't ready to make a change yet. The southpaw has allowed nine runs in 5 2/3 innings over his last two starts. He's logged a career-high 164 1/3 innings this year.
Sep 19 - 5:35 PM

Drew Pomeranz was knocked around in Sunday's no-decision against the Yankees, surrendering four runs on seven hits in only 3 2/3 innings.

Pomeranz struck out three while walking two on the evening. He departed after surrendering a pair of runs in the fourth inning and with his club trailing 4-0, but the Red Sox offense was able to take him off the hook, while the Red Sox bullpen spun 5 1/3 innings of shutout baseball the rest of the way. He'll look to turn his season around when he squares off against the Rays in Tampa Bay on Friday.
Sep 18 - 11:48 PM

Drew Pomeranz lasted just two-plus innings in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles, permitting five runs.

Home plate umpire Alfonso Marquez had a tiny strike zone in this one, but Pomeranz didn't help his own cause. He surrendered a three-run homer and two-run homer in the second inning, giving up four hits and two walks on the day while throwing 63 pitches over two-plus frames. The southpaw was pitching on an extra days' rest, but clearly it didn't help. Pomeranz will try to bounce back on Sunday versus the Yankees at Fenway.
Sep 14 - 12:13 AM

The Red Sox juggled their weekend rotation to allow Drew Pomeranz extra rest.

Pomeranz had been scheduled to start against the Blue Jays on Sunday, but that start has been pushed back. Clay Buchholz will start on Sunday instead, with David Price set for Monday and Pomeranz now slated to toe the rubber on Tuesday. The latter two will be starting against the Orioles.
Sep 7 - 7:19 PM

Drew Pomeranz lost Monday after giving up two runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Padres.

With Edwin Jackson opposing him, one would have thought Pomeranz would be in pretty good shape for a winning if he allowed just two runs today. Alas, it didn't work out that way. He's gotten very little run support of late, which is why he's 2-4 in 10 starts for the Red Sox.
Sep 5 - 8:40 PM

Drew Pomeranz struck out eight while surrendering three runs over 6 2/3 frames in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

Pomeranz was in the midst of a superb effort before Luke Maile connected on a two-out, two-run homer in the seventh inning to tied things up. It was a nice showing even if he had to settle for a no-decision, though. Pomeranz has really settled in in his last six starts after a shaky beginning to his Red Sox career. He'll face his former team, the Padres, the next time out.
Aug 30 - 10:53 PM

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.
Aug 25 - 4:13 PM

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.
Jul 31 - 12:55 AM

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.
