Drew Pomeranz (biceps, neck) threw off a mound Friday.
It's a big step in right direction for the 29-year-old left-hander, but he's probably still a ways away from being considered an option for the Red Sox starting rotation. Pomeranz had a 6.81 ERA and 1.84 WHIP over his first 37 innings (eight starts) this season with Boston. Steven Wright has jumped into his rotation spot. Jun 22 - 4:17 PM

Drew Pomeranz (biceps, neck) played long toss in the outfield on Tuesday.

Pomeranz also then threw some pitches on flat ground. Pomeranz landed on the disabled list June 2 with left biceps tendinitis and had more recently developed some neck stiffness. There is currently no timetable for his return to the Red Sox starting rotation. Steven Wright will continue to hold down his spot.

Drew Pomeranz (biceps) has not resumed throwing.

Pomeranz told reporters Wednesday that his arm feels fine and the pain is gone from his left biceps, but he has some lingering neck stiffness and is still trying to get over that. It'll be at least a couple more weeks before he's an option again for the Red Sox starting rotation. Steven Wright is holding down his spot and pitching brilliantly, so Pomeranz probably isn't going to be rushed back. He holds a wretched 6.81 ERA and 1.84 WHIP in 37 innings (eight starts) this season.
Jun 13 - 12:55 PM

Red Sox placed LHP Drew Pomeranz on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 2, with left biceps tendinitis.

Pomeranz reportedly felt the injury after his last start, and the Red Sox aren't going to take any chances with the left-hander. Brandon Workman will reportedly get the callup to replace Pomeranz on the 25-man roster. Pomeranz was scheduled to start on Thursday, and there's no word yet on who will start that game now.
Jun 5 - 5:09 PM

Drew Pomeranz gave up six hits and four runs over five innings Thursday in the Red Sox’s loss to Houston.

Pomeranz struck out five and walked two over 87 pitches. The left-hander got off to a rough start, allowing two runs to come across on a first-inning homer by Carlos Correa. The Astros used small ball to score another two runs in the fourth, taking back the lead after Boston tied the game on Xander Bogaerts’ two-run double in the third. It’s been a rough stretch for Pomeranz, who has gone his last five starts without a victory. He’ll take an ugly 6.81 ERA into his next outing Wednesday against Detroit.
May 31 - 11:41 PM

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after Saturday's game that Drew Pomeranz will make his next scheduled start against the Astros.

There was some uncertainty about his outlook after he was battered again Saturday, leaving him with a 6.75 ERA and 1.88 WHIP, but Cora said the club and Pomeranz will just have to continue looking for fixes on the fly. Even if the Red Sox have to roll with him, fantasy owners don't, and should have jumped ship by now. He can't be used in any format until he gets back on track, and the results show it.
May 26 - 5:40 PM

Drew Pomeranz was knocked around in Saturday's loss to the Braves, giving up five runs on six hits on only 3 1/3 innings of work.

Pomeranz walked three and struck out three on the afternoon. He served up a two-run homer to Dansby Swanson in the second inning, then the Braves added on in the third and fourth before chasing him. He now owns a miserable 6.75 ERA and 1.88 WHIP on the season. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Red Sox bump him from the rotation, or place him on the disabled list, after this latest disaster.
May 26 - 4:42 PM

Drew Pomeranz will have his next scheduled start pushed back to Saturday against the Braves.

The struggling left-hander had been scheduled to pitch on Thursday against the Rays in Tampa Bay, but the Red Sox will utilize an off-day to give Pomeranz a few extra days of rest. He owns a disappointing 5.97 ERA and 1.78 WHIP across 28 2/3 innings on the season.
May 20 - 9:16 PM

Drew Pomeranz was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Orioles, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits over his four innings of work.

Pomeranz also issued three walks on the night while striking out two. The bulk of the damage against him came during a four-run uprising in the fourth inning which included two-run singles by Adam Jones and Manny Machado. Pomeranz sports a troublesome 5.97 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over 28 2/3 innings through his first six starts. He'll try to right the ship on Thursday against the Rays in Tampa Bay.
May 18 - 11:08 PM

Drew Pomeranz gave up three runs over four innings of work while earning a no decision against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Pomeranz was able to strike out six, but it was his five walks that doomed him from factoring into the decision on Sunday. His ERA is now up to 5.47 on the season, and he's walked 13 hitters in his 24 2/3 innings in 2018. He'll try and throw more strikes when he's back on the mound on Friday against the Orioles.
May 13 - 5:20 PM

Drew Pomeranz limited the Yankees to two runs over six frames Tuesday in a no-decision.

Pomeranz served up a pair of solo home runs to Giancarlo Stanton, but those were the only tallies the Bombers mustered off the southpaw. He gave up just four hits while walking two, battling through an apparent fingernail issue. It’s Pomeranz’s best outing so far this season and his arrow is pointing up with two straight quality starts following a couple clunkers. He’ll try to keep it going on Sunday in Toronto.
May 8 - 11:23 PM

Drew Pomeranz was tagged for eight hits and three runs over six innings Wednesday in the Red Sox’s win over Kansas City.

Pomeranz fanned three and walked two over his 89 pitches. The left-hander struggled early, giving up one run in the first and another two in the third. He was lights out after that, however, blanking KC while allowing just four hits over his final four innings. Pomeranz has seen a dip in velocity since coming back from a strained flexor tendon but his curve ball is still biting. He’ll make his next start Tuesday in the Bronx against the red-hot Yankees.
May 2 - 4:54 PM

Drew Pomeranz surrendered four runs in five innings in Friday’s loss to the Rays.

All of the damage was via the long ball, as he gave up three homers. Showing diminished velocity, Pomeranz gave up six hits and two walks while striking out four batters. After getting a late start on the season following a flexor strain during spring training, the southpaw has allowed seven runs on 11 hits and four walks in 8 2/3 innings through his first two starts. He can’t be used in mixed leagues right now.
Apr 28 - 12:05 AM

Drew Pomeranz's next start will not come until next weekend.

Pomeranz would be on turn for a start during the April 24-26 series in Toronto, but the Red Sox are taking advantage of an off day Monday to give him some extra rest. It's not a bad idea after he returned from an arm injury and wasn't terribly sharp last Friday. Chris Sale will start on regular rest Thursday.
Apr 22 - 1:36 PM

Drew Pomeranz (forearm) allowed three earned runs, five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision Friday in Oakland.

Pomeranz labored through his 88-pitch outing, throwing just 58 pitches for strikes and he uncorked a pair of wild pitches. It was his first start since coming off the 10-day disabled list due to a flexor strain suffered during spring training. A little rust was to be expected, especially on the road. He'll look for better results at home against the ice-cold Royals on Tuesday night.
