Drew Pomeranz earned his 10th win by limiting the Blue Jays to an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings on Wednesday.
Pomeranz worked around five walks in the game. He allowed just three hits, all of them singles. Incredibly, Pommeranz has allowed two runs or fewer in 15 of his 19 starts. None of those starts have lasted longer than seven innings and many fell short of six, so he's not as valuable as that stat makes him sound. Still, he's given the Red Sox a chance to win pretty much every time out. Jul 19 - 10:23 PM

Drew Pomeranz yielded four runs in six innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Friday.

Pomeranz held the Yankees to one run through the first four innings before giving up in the fifth, highlighted by a long two-run homer off the bat of Gary Sanchez. The southpaw was on the hook for the loss before Aroldis Chapman blew the save in the ninth. This was just the first time since June 11 where Pomeranz gave up more than two runs. He’ll bring a 3.75 ERA into a start against the Blue Jays next week.
Jul 15 - 12:10 AM

Drew Pomeranz walked five and gave up six hits but held the Rays to just two runs over six innings in a win Friday.

The southpaw wasn't at his sharpest, but he made pitches when he had to, including getting out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the fifth inning. Six strikeouts helped him along the way. Through mid-May, Pomeranz appeared to be a disaster for the Sox, but since a loss against the same Rays club on May 14 that dropped him to 3-3 with a 5.29 ERA, Pomeranz has gone 6-1 while lowering his ERA to 3.60 in that span. In that sense, the break comes at an inopportune time, but the 28-year-old will look to carry that momentum into the second half.
Jul 7 - 10:50 PM

Drew Pomeranz picked up his eighth victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Blue Jays to one run on five hits over six strong innings.

The southpaw punched out three while walking two on the afternoon. The Red Sox staked him to an early lead in this one and Pomeranz had it on cruise control from there. He'll carry a 3.64 ERA and 1.32 WHIP into his final start of the first half on Friday against the Rays in Tampa Bay.
Jul 2 - 4:56 PM

Drew Pomeranz yielded an unearned run over five innings Tuesday in a win over the Twins.

The Red Sox took a chance in bringing Pomeranz back following a lengthy rain delay in the third. It not for the W, Pomeranz probably would have been pulled in the fifth after the first three reached (albeit one on an error and another on an infield single). Still, he got through the frame and improved to 7-4 on the year. He's allowed two runs or fewer in 12 of 15 starts.
Jun 28 - 12:54 AM

Drew Pomeranz held the Royals to two runs in 6 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Royals.

Pomeranz left with a two-run lead, but it was blown in the eighth. That makes back-to-back quality starts for him in which he's failed to factor into the decision. Pomeranz has given up one or two runs in seven of his last eight starts and 11 of 14 for the seasons.
Jun 21 - 6:04 PM

Drew Pomeranz surrendered one run in 6 1/3 innings Friday against the Astros.

Pomeranz doesn't work very deep into games, but this makes 10 times in 13 starts that he's allowed just one or two runs. Unfortunately, he wasn't involved in the decision tonight, leaving him 6-4 with a 4.19 ERA.
Jun 17 - 1:14 AM

Drew Pomeranz allowed six runs - five earned - and eight hits with two walks and two strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings in a loss Sunday against the Tigers.

Pomeranz struggled with his command, especially early on, and he wasn't helped by his defense, either. He ended up throwing just 60 of his 93 pitches for strikes, snapping a five-start stretch where he allowed two or fewer earned runs. His two strikeouts were also a season low.
Jun 12 - 1:47 AM

Drew Pomeranz needed 123 pitches to cover five innings but did enough to get a win, allowing two runs – one earned – in a 5-4 victory over the Yankees.

Manager John Farrell was pretty clearly managing to get Pomeranz a win in the fifth, as it was a grind for the lefty all night. It probably wasn’t a wise strategy considering Pomeranz has had arm issues essentially since the day Boston acquired him. Pomeranz did get out of the fifth, though, but freezing Matt Holliday with a 3-2 curveball on his 123rd offering. He struck out seven on the night and now boasts a 26/3 K/BB ratio over his last three outings. He’ll get the Tigers on Sunday, assuming his arm feels OK.
Jun 6 - 11:46 PM

Drew Pomeranz yielded one run in seven innings and struck out eight as the Red Sox bested the White Sox 4-1 on Wednesday.

It's both the longest outing for Pomeranz this season and the first in which he hasn't walked at least one batter. He's 5-3 with a 4.24 ERA and a 64/17 K/BB ratio in 51 innings.
May 31 - 11:30 PM

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.
May 20 - 7:56 PM

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.
May 15 - 7:31 PM

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.
