Drew Pomeranz yielded three runs over four innings against the Blue Jays in his start Friday.
Pomeranz, who left his last start with triceps tightness, was very pleased afterwards, especially with how things came together after the first two innings (all of the runs scored then). Assuming he still feels good these next couple of days, he'll be penciled in as Boston's fifth starter. Mar 24 - 4:55 PM

Drew Pomeranz said his triceps discomfort was a result of poor mechanics, not an injury.

Pomeranz was pulled from a Grapefruit League start Sunday against the Twins after feeling something off in his left arm, but he showed up back at Red Sox camp Monday morning with zero symptoms. Pomeranz expects to take his next turn in Boston's spring rotation on Friday and he should be fully healthy for the opening of the 2017 regular season.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Drew Pomeranz (triceps) is on track to make his scheduled Grapefruit League start on Friday.

Pomeranz was lifted from Sunday's game against the Twins after experiencing tightness in his left triceps, but he showed up back at Red Sox camp Monday without any symptoms. The left-hander will throw a bullpen session Tuesday or Wednesday. For now, it appears Boston has dodged a bullet.
Mar 20 - 9:49 AM

Drew Pomeranz departed Sunday's start against the Twins after two innings with tightness in his left triceps.

The Red Sox are calling Pomeranz's removal precautionary, so there doesn't appear to be concern at this point that it's overly serious. However, the left-hander was already behind schedule after being given a stem cell injection in his elbow last October. This setback, even if it's indeed small, might make it hard for him to be ready by Opening Day. It could give a guy like Kyle Kendrick a shot at some early-season starts.

Drew Pomeranz gave up two runs in two innings Tuesday against the Blue Jays in his spring debut.

Pomeranz's stuff wasn't quite up to par, but he seemed happy with where he was physically after the outing today. The Red Sox had held him back after he underwent a step cell injection for his troublesome elbow. Barring any setbacks, he figures to open up in the team's rotation.
Mar 14 - 5:01 PM

Drew Pomeranz (elbow) has been cleared to make his Grapefruit League debut on Tuesday.

Pomeranz has been eased into action this spring after getting stem cell treatment on his left elbow last October. He will probably have a rotation spot if he's close to 100 percent when Opening Day arrives.
Mar 9 - 10:27 AM

Drew Pomeranz (elbow) threw 35 pitches in batting practice Wednesday.

It was essentially two innings. Pomeranz felt fine and should be ready to pitch in a game next week. The southpaw required a stem cell injection in his elbow last October, but he should begin the year in the rotation if he can avoid setbacks.
Mar 8 - 12:14 PM

Drew Pomeranz (elbow) threw a successful live batting practice session Friday and will throw another one Wednesday.

He'll also throw a bullpen session in between the two live BP sessions on Sunday. Pomeranz should be cleared to appear in a game after that, and Red Sox manager John Farrell said the lefty is on track to be ready for Opening Day. The left-hander has been brought along slowly in camp after having a stem cell injection in his elbow last October.
Mar 5 - 9:47 AM

Drew Pomeranz (elbow) threw his first bullpen session of Red Sox camp on Monday.

And it apparently went smoothly. Pomeranz finished last season with elbow problems, but he's had no issues so far this spring and he should have a place in the Red Sox rotation if the story remains the same. Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez are also in the running for the final two spots.

Drew Pomeranz (elbow) is expected to throw his first bullpen session of spring training on Monday.

Pomeranz is being eased into action at Red Sox camp after requiring stem cell treatment on his left elbow last October. He'll have a good shot at a starting job if everything goes smoothly from here. Eduardo Rodriguez and Steven Wright are also in the running for the back end of the Boston rotation.
Feb 20 - 8:44 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday that Drew Pomeranz (elbow) won't throw off a mound for at least the first week of spring training.

Pomeranz received a stem cell injection in his left elbow in October, so his throwing program this offseason has been stalled. It doesn't appear to be something to be overly concerned with at this point. "Similar situation (to Steven Wright) in terms of the timing of it all," Farrell said. "With physicals tomorrow we’ll get a better read, but there’s a possibility those two guys might be in a continued long toss throwing period for a week before we get them on the mound."

Red Sox and LHP Drew Pomeranz avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.45 million contract.

Pomeranz requested $5.7 million and was offered $3.6 million by the Red Sox when arbitration figures were exchanged earlier this month. It was a big gap, and the two sides settled for a little under the midpoint. The southpaw was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter. Pomeranz faded down the stretch after being acquired from the Padres last summer and required a stem cell injection in his pitching elbow in October, but the expectation is that he'll be ready to go for spring training. He'll be in the mix with Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez for the final two spots in Boston's rotation.

Drew Pomeranz underwent a stem cell injection in his pitching elbow in October.

Pomeranz pitched through elbow discomfort which seemed to really hurt his performance in the second half of the 2016 season. The southpaw has indicated that his arm feels strong and pain-free since he began throwing, which is a very encouraging sign heading into 2017.
Jan 21 - 12:29 PM

Red Sox team president Dave Dombrowski said Saturday that the club is close settling on a contract with Drew Pomeranz.

Pomeranz requested $5.7 million when arbitration figures were exchanged while the Red Sox countered at $3.6 million. An agreement somewhere in the middle, around $4.65 million seems a likely compromise for the 28-year-old hurler.

Drew Pomeranz requested $5.7 million and was offered $3.6 million by the Red Sox when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

It's quite the discrepancy between the two sides, yet still one that's likely to be worked out through negotiation rather than going to an actual arbitration hearing. MLBTradeRumors.com projects that he'll earn $4.7 million in arbitration, right around the mid-point between the two sides' figures.
