Drew Pomeranz had it all working Thursday, striking out 11 while allowing two runs over six innings in a win over the Rangers.
It was a good sign for Sox fans when the southpaw struck out the first two batters he faced and ended up punching out five of the first seven hitters he saw. He allowed just four hits, including a solo homer to Elvis Andrus, and walked one over his six innings. Efficiency has been his enemy this season -- only three times in nine starts has he gotten through six innings, and he's yet to record an out in the seventh -- but the Sox will take Thursday's performance every time. Pomeranz will try to carry on that good momentum, and continue to work on his 4.70 ERA, against the White Sox on Tuesday. May 26 - 12:01 AM

Drew Pomeranz gave up two runs -- one earned -- in four innings and took a no-decision against the Athletics on Saturday.

Both runs came in the second inning when Pomeranz issued two walks followed by two infield singles. The game was tied when Pomeranz departed, but the Red Sox bullpen gave up five runs in the next inning. He was relieved early in his last start with triceps tightness but that does not appear to be the reason he was limited to only four innings today. He threw 97 pitches in today's contest and simply wasn't efficient enough with his pitches to go deeper into the game. He will take a 4.97 ERA and 1.47 WHIP into a start against the Mariners on Friday.

Drew Pomeranz (triceps) said Tuesday that he expects to take his next turn in the Red Sox rotation.

Pomeranz was removed his last start Sunday against the Rays with tightness in his left triceps, but he played catch Monday without issue and will throw his normal between-starts bullpen session on Wednesday. He's lined up to face the Athletics in Oakland this weekend.
May 16 - 5:33 PM

An MRI on Drew Pomeranz's left triceps showed no change from previous tests and he's been cleared to resume baseball activities.

Pomeranz left Sunday's start after feeling tightness in his triceps while warming up prior to the fourth inning. He dealt with something similar in spring training and didn't miss a start, and it sounds like he won't miss a turn this time around, either. Pomeranz is tentatively scheduled to face the A's this weekend.

Drew Pomeranz (triceps) expects to make his next scheduled start.

Pomeranz will undergo a precautionary MRI on Monday after exiting Sunday's start with left triceps tightness. He dealt with a similar ailment in spring training and didn't miss a start then, either. An off day Monday would allow Pomeranz some extra rest before his next outing.
May 15 - 5:22 PM

Drew Pomeranz departed Sunday's start against the Rays with left triceps tightness.

It's the same injury he dealt with during spring training. Pomeranz didn't even miss a start during Grapefruit League play due to the ailment, but it seems unlikely that he'll be that lucky again this time. The Red Sox should have more on his status after the game.
May 14 - 3:37 PM

Drew Pomeranz departed Sunday's start versus the Rays with an apparent injury.

Something happened when Pomeranz threw his warm-up pitches prior to the fourth inning, as he was visited by the Red Sox' trainer and then exited the field. The club should have an update on him shortly.
May 14 - 3:00 PM

Drew Pomeranz didn’t have it Tuesday, getting lit up for six runs over just four frames in a loss to the Brewers.

The Brew Crew jumped on the left-hander for five runs in the first inning, as Pomeranz was taken deep by Eric Thames and Keon Broxton. He gave up seven hits overall on the night in addition to walking a pair of batters in what was his worst outing of the season. Pomeranz will try for better results on Sunday versus the Rays.
May 10 - 1:03 AM

Drew Pomeranz pitched 5 1/3 innings of two-run ball Wednesday in Boston's 4-2 win over Baltimore.

Pomeranz struck out seven. There's no telling whether his elbow will hold up, but this makes four times in five starts this season that he's allowed one or two runs. Three of those outings have come against the Orioles. Overall, he's struck out 34 in 26 2/3 innings.
May 3 - 11:02 PM

Drew Pomeranz yielded two runs over six innings as part of a 5-4 win over the Cubs on Friday.

Pomeranz gave up solo homers to Kris Bryant and Albert Almora, Jr., but otherwise was able to keep the Cubs off the board. Relying heavily on his curveball, the southpaw struck out seven and walked a pair in the victory. Pomeranz has yet to throw more than six innings this season, but he has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three out of his four starts. He’ll bring a 4.15 ERA into a matchup against the Orioles at home.
Apr 28 - 11:12 PM

Drew Pomeranz pitched well in a losing effort against the Orioles on Friday, surrendering two runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Pomeranz walked two and struck out four on the night. He allowed an RBI single to Adam Jones in the third inning and a solo homer to Manny Machado in the fifth, and the Red Sox weren't able to provide him any offensive support. Now 1-1 on the year, he'll look to improve upon a 4.60 ERA and 1.21 WHIP when he takes on the Yankees at home on Thursday.
Apr 21 - 10:33 PM

Drew Pomeranz allowed five earned runs over 4 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Rays.

Pomeranz gave up three of those five runs in the top of the first inning, on two walks, a passed ball, a single, and a triple. He then surrendered a solo homer to Corey Dickerson in the fourth and another to Tim Beckham in the fifth. Pomeranz opened some eyes with a sharp start Tuesday versus the Orioles and he struck out 10 batters in Boston's eventual 7-5 victory on Sunday, but the left-hander is now sporting a 5.23 ERA. He'll face the Orioles at Camden Yards next.
Apr 16 - 6:07 PM

Drew Pomeranz returned from the disabled list with a vengeance Tuesday, spinning six frames of one-run ball in an 8-1 win over the Orioles.

Well, this one was a surprise. Pomeranz was awful during spring training and battled a couple different arm injuries, but he looked excellent from the jump in this one, touching the mid-90s with his fastball and showing a nice curveball. He allowed four hits and a walk while striking out six. Pomeranz started the seventh but was yanked after yielding a leadoff single to Chris Davis, and that wound up being the only run charged to him. The southpaw has a date with the Rays at home this weekend.
Apr 11 - 11:43 PM

Red Sox activated LHP Drew Pomeranz from the 10-day disabled list.

Pomeranz began the year on the disabled list after dealing with a flexor strain and a triceps issue during spring training. Fantasy owners would be advised to wait and see before activating him. The southpaw put up a 4.59 ERA and 71/24 K/BB ratio in 68 2/3 innings over 13 starts and one relief appearance after being acquired by Boston last season. His health remains a concern.
Apr 11 - 2:13 PM

Drew Pomeranz (arm) will make his season debut on Tuesday against the Orioles.

He had been slated to start Sunday, but the Red Sox will use Thursday's rainout as a way to give Pomeranz a couple extra days. The left-hander dealt with a flexor strain and a triceps issue during spring training and will be a sketchy fantasy bet versus Baltimore.
