Drew Pomeranz pitched adequately against the Rangers on Saturday, allowing three runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.
Pomeranz struck out four, walked one and scattered eight hits into the sixth inning, surrendering solitary runs in the first, third and sixth innings. Despite what was a decent start, he wouldn't factor into the decision, as the Rangers won 8-7 in 10 innings. Pomeranz seems to put up the same start every time he touches the mound. His 4.62 ERA and 1.32 WHIP haven't seen any huge swings on a game-to-game basis, as he hasn't allowed more than four earned runs in a start and has also not allowed fewer than three in his last four tries. He'll take these exceedingly average numbers to Target Field in a match-up with the Twins next time out. May 3 - 12:59 AM

Drew Pomeranz struggled against the Astros on Sunday, surrendering five runs (three earned) on six hits over five innings.

Pomeranz struck out four and walked three in the outing. The Astros tagged him for three runs in the third and two in the fourth. The runs in the third came on a pair of RBI singles, while Jake Marisknick's two-run homer supplied the damage in the fourth. Pomeranz's current 4.50 ERA is more or less indicative of what you can expect from the pitcher. He will pitch effectively at times, but shouldn't be seen as much more than a league-average starter. The 26-year-old southpaw will take to the road against the Rangers in his next outing.
Apr 26 - 7:46 PM

Drew Pomeranz yielded five runs (four earned) over five innings in a loss to the Angels on Tuesday.

Pomeranz allowed eight hits and a walk on the evening, but used six strikeouts to get out of trouble for the most part. Johnny Giavotella punished him in the second inning, however, with a three-run home run. Pomeranz was effective over 10 starts for the Athletics last season, but shouldn't be expected to be much better than league average over a full slate of starts. He's currently 1-2 with a 4.24 ERA, a 1.06 WHIP, and a 17/2 K/BB ratio in 17 innings. Pomeranz matches up with the Astros at home in his next outing.
Apr 22 - 1:38 AM

Drew Pomeranz surrendered four runs in five-plus innings Wednesday in a loss to the Astros.

Pomeranz couldn't duplicate last week's effort against the Mariners, but at the same time, it wasn't any sort of disaster. Unfortunately, the six hits he did allow all came two at a time and four of them were for extra bases. He ended up striking out five and walking just one. As long as he keeps the walks down, he should prove effective most of the time.
Apr 15 - 11:49 PM

Drew Pomeranz pitched seven scoreless innings, striking out six, in Oakland's 12-0 rout of Seattle on Friday.

It's just the third time in 41 career starts that Pomeranz has pitched seven innings; he's never gone any longer. He just isn't very efficient most nights, but he should rack up the swings and misses and strikeouts with his fastball-curveball combination. Expect him to be an asset in mixed leagues.
Apr 11 - 1:19 AM

Drew Pomeranz yielded two runs over five innings in his final spring start Saturday versus the Giants.

The lefty gave up five hits, walked two, and struck out three. He wraps up the spring with a 2.38 ERA and a 28/10 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings. Pomeranz will operate out of the No. 5 spot in the Athletics' starting rotation.
Apr 4 - 7:18 PM

Drew Pomeranz held the Rockies scoreless over six innings in Monday's start.

The lefty allowed only two hits and a walk while punching out six batters. The effort will likely help Pomeranz officially notch the No. 5 spot in the Athletics' starting rotation. In 17 2/3 innings this spring, Pomeranz has allowed four earned runs in 14 hits and eight walks while striking out 25.
Mar 30 - 7:49 PM

Drew Pomeranz battled right hip tightness and said he felt out of sorts after allowing two runs on three hits over 2 2/3 innings against the Cubs in Cactus League action.

Pomeranz noted afterwards that it's an issue he has dealt with in the past and believes it's a one-time thing. He's battling Jesse Hahn, Kendall Graveman and a host of others for the final two spots in the A's Opening Day rotation, so any missed time due to injury would take him out of the running.
Mar 24 - 6:12 PM

Drew Pomeranz continued to pitch well on Wednesday, limiting the Mariners to one run in four innings.

Pomeranz yielded the run in his final inning of work when the Mariners paired a two-out Kyle Seager double with a Justin Ruggiano single. Overall, the lefty gave up four hits and a walk while striking out five. Through nine spring innings, Pomeranz has allowed just two earned runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out 15. He's certainly making a strong case for inclusion at the back of the Athletics' starting rotation but he'll have to keep it up through his next few starts.
Mar 18 - 6:34 PM

Drew Pomeranz was terrific in Friday's Cactus League start against the Cubs, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits over three frames.

Pomeranz racked up six strikeouts on the afternoon while walking only one. The 26-year-old southpaw faces tremendous competition for the final spots in the A's rotation, but is off to a fantastic start with a 1.80 ERA and 10/2 K/BB ratio through his first five innings.
Mar 13 - 10:56 PM

Drew Pomeranz hurled a pair of scoreless innings in Sunday's start against the White Sox.

Pomeranz allowed two hits, walked none, and struck out four in the effort. Though he pitched well in 69 innings for the A's last season, he's still in a fierce competition for a spot at the back of the starting rotation.
Mar 8 - 8:39 PM

Drew Pomeranz blanked the Phillies over five innings but took a no-decision on Saturday as the Athletics suffered a loss.

Pomeranz was making a spot start in place of Jason Hammel and the results were good: the lefty allowed just one hit while walking two and striking out six. Pomeranz has been solid when called upon by the A's, as he has a 2.35 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 64/26 K/BB ratio in 10 starts and 10 relief appearances this season. He isn't expected to start again before the regular season expires.

Drew Pomeranz will make a spot start on Saturday versus the Phillies.

He's filling in for Jason Hammel, who will be away to attend the birth of his child. Pomeranz has put up a 2.85 ERA in nine starts this season and isn't a bad streaming option this weekend.

Athletics recalled LHP Drew Pomeranz from Low-A Beloit.

Pomeranz was dominant in a spot start last Wednesday against the Astros, striking out seven batters and allowing just one (unearned) run over 5 1/3 innings. He will pitch in long relief initially for the A's but could be an option for another start later this month.
Tue, Sep 2, 2014 03:47:00 PM

Athletics optioned LHP Drew Pomeranz to Low-A Beloit.

Pomeranz was sharp in a spot start against the Astros on Wednesday, striking out seven batters and allowed only an unearned run over 5 1/3 innings. He'll likely return as a long reliever when rosters expand in September.
