Drew Pomeranz is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left AC joint.

Pomeranz has dealt with AC joint issues off and on during his career and has finally decided to have the problem addressed via the surgical route. It's unclear at this point how long his rehab will be, but he'll be recovered in time for spring training.
Oct 5 - 6:42 PM

Doctors have recommended that Drew Pomeranz undergo a clavicle resection.

Pomeranz will get a second opinion, but if he goes through with the procedure, he'll be looking at a six-week recovery period. He should be back at full strength well before pitchers and catchers are required to report in mid-February.
Oct 3 - 7:44 PM

Drew Pomeranz has been shut down for the season with an AC joint issue in his left shoulder.

It's an ailment that Pomeranz has battled off and on for a while, so there don't figure to be any long-term concerns. Pomeranz held a 4.63 ERA as a starter and 2.61 ERA in relief this season and might settle into a bullpen role over the long haul.

Drew Pomeranz picked up his third save of the season Saturday in the A's defeat of the Diamondbacks.

Pomeranz struck out all three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning. The left-hander has been granted the A's last two save opportunities and looks to be the guy to own in Oakland for the stretch run.
Aug 29 - 10:56 PM

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

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.
Jul 23 - 1:41 PM

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.'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.
