Drew Pomeranz earned his second save of the season Wednesday in the A's defeat of the Dodgers.
Pomeranz retired all three batters he faced in a perfect ninth inning. The 26-year-old left-hander boasts a 3.67 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 69/30 K/BB ratio in 73 2/3 innings this season for the A's and would take on considerable fantasy value if he begins to see more save opportunities. Pomeranz's last converted save (before Wednesday) was on June 23. Aug 19 - 6:16 PM

Date:

Drew Pomeranz will start for the A's on Thursday afternoon against the Blue Jays.

It was supposed to be Scott Kazmir's turn, but Kazmir got dealt Thursday morning to the Astros for a pair of prospects. Pomeranz owns a 3.58 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 7.3 K/9 in eight starts and 20 relief appearances this season for Oakland. He's a bad fantasy play Thursday versus Toronto, but the 26-year-old left-hander could take on mixed-league value if he grabs Kazmir's spot permanently.

Drew Pomeranz notched the first save of his career Tuesday, tossing 1 2/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Rangers.

The A's wanted to give Tyler Clippard two straight days off after he went more than one inning in back-to-back saves over the weekend, so on Tuesday the closing duties fell to Pomeranz. He walked one and yielded a single but also struck out a pair. The southpaw holds a 2.16 ERA over 10 appearances since returning from the disabled list as a reliever.
Jun 23 - 11:49 PM

Athletics activated LHP Drew Pomeranz from the 15-day disabled list.

Pomeranz was cleared to return after getting through a rehab appearance with no issues. The A's will use him in relief for now, though it's certainly possible that he'll get another shot to start at some point.
Jun 3 - 3:08 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin confirmed that Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) will be sent to the bullpen when activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

Pomeranz was up-and-down in his time in the rotation before going on the DL, posting a 4.40 ERA over eight starts. Kendall Graveman has pitched pretty well since rejoining the rotation and the A's have decided to stick with him. Pomeranz can be dropped in shallower fantasy leagues.
Jun 2 - 10:21 PM

Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) is likely to be activated from the disabled list Wednesday.

MLB.com's Jane Lee says Pomeranz will be put in the bullpen rather than added back to the rotation. But that could change. Pomeranz wound up missing around three weeks with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. He threw two hitless innings and struck out three Sunday at High-A Stockton in what was his only rehab appearance.
Jun 2 - 4:20 PM

Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) is scheduled to make his first minor league rehab start with High-A Stockton on Sunday.

He will work two innings in his first outing and build up from there. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready to rejoin the rotation in late June
May 29 - 7:43 PM

Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Thursday.

Pomeranz played catch a few days after being placed on the disabled list with a sore shoulder and is now ready for mound work, so it's safe to say the cortisone injection he received has worked. The left-hander could be ready for a rehab assignment before long.
May 27 - 1:53 PM

Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) will play catch on Monday.

It will be the first time he's thrown since he went on the disabled list with a sprained left AC joint. Pomeranz was given a cortisone injection late last week and could be looking at a relatively short stay on the disabled list.
May 24 - 11:50 AM

Drew Pomeranz received a cortisone shot for his sprained left AC joint.

Pomeranz will resume throwing once the cortisone shot does its job. There's no clear timetable for his return. Kendall Graveman is set to take his place in Oakland's starting rotation.
May 21 - 5:24 PM

Athletics placed LHP Drew Pomeranz on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19, with a sprained left AC joint.

It's an ailment he's dealt with before and he didn't seem concerned, as the southpaw was even able to play catch Tuesday. However, the A's have obviously decided to exercise caution here. It's not clear at this point how long Pomeranz will be sidelined. Arnold Leon has replaced him on the roster.
May 20 - 10:05 AM

Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) has flown back to the Bay Area to be examined on Wednesday and is a candidate to be placed on the disabled list.

Pomeranz had to exit Monday's start with soreness around the AC joint in his left shoulder. He was able to play catch Tuesday and seemed optimistic about his status, but the A's might elect to be cautious with him. More will obviously be known about his status after Wednesday's exam.
May 19 - 6:15 PM

Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) was able to play catch on Tuesday without issue.

Pomeranz made an early departure from his start Monday against the Astros after experiencing some discomfort around the AC joint in his left shoulder. "Normal soreness," the southpaw said after his short throwing session Tuesday. "What I expected." It's not yet clear whether he'll be allowed to take his next scheduled turn in the A's starting rotation.
May 19 - 4:51 PM

Drew Pomeranz revealed after Monday's game that the left shoulder issue he's dealing with is soreness in his AC joint.

Pomeranz noted that he's had problems with the AC joint before and it has yet to cause him to miss a start. So, it sounds like even though the ailment forced him from Monday's outing that he might be able to make his next start. He figures to be re-evaluated on Tuesday.
May 18 - 11:53 PM

Drew Pomeranz got a no-decision, giving up one run in 4 1/3 innings before departing with an injury against the Astros in Monday's win.

The Astros scored their only run against Pomeranz in the first inning on an Evan Gattis sacrifice fly. Pomeranz gave up only two hits, but walked five while striking out only two. Walks are usually not an issue for the lefty, but he has walked five batters in two of his last three starts. He has a 4.40 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a 32/16 K/BB ratio in 43 innings. If Pomeranz is able to make his next start, it will be in Tampa against the Rays.
