Drew Pomeranz threw seven scoreless innings, allowing just three hits, to lead the Padres to a 3-0 victory over the Reds on Saturday.
Pomeranz yielded a double and two singles on the afternoon, walking just one while striking out six. He also helped himself at the plate, hitting his first home run of the year and collecting two RBI. Pitching is what he's best at, though, and the 27-year-old is now 7-7 with a 2.76 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 102/39 K/BB ratio over 88 innings of work. He'll try to continue his breakout first half Saturday against the Yankees. Jun 25 - 8:12 PM

Drew Pomeranz earned his sixth victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Nationals to three runs on six hits over his six frames.

Pomeranz fanned seven on the afternoon and issued just one free pass. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Michael Taylor belting a pair of solo homers and Danny Espinosa adding one of his own. He has been outstanding in the Padres rotation this season, registering a 3.00 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 96/38 K/BB ratio in 81 innings. He'll take on the Reds at home his next time out on Saturday.
Jun 19 - 10:00 PM

Drew Pomeranz struggled in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins, walking five and allowing five runs on five hits over five innings.

Five appeared to be the number of the night, though Pomeranz screwed up the synergy by striking out six. A five-run first inning by the Marlins proved to be his undoing, with a Jeff Mathis grand slam accounting for most of the damage. Even with this less-than-desirable outing in the books, Pomeranz still holds a respectable 2.88 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 89/37 K/BB ratio over 75 innings. A home start against the Nationals shows next on his schedule.
Jun 15 - 1:15 AM

Drew Pomeranz took the loss in Wednesday's showdown with the Braves, yielding three runs on nine hits over five innings.

Pomeranz struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. He allowed two runs in the first inning and one in the fourth (on an RBI single by Julio Teheran no less). Through 12 starts covering 70 innings, the 27-year-old southpaw holds a 2.44 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 83/32 K/BB ratio. A home start against the Marlins shows next on his schedule.
Jun 8 - 6:47 PM

Drew Pomeranz struck out eight in seven innings and combined with two relievers on a two-hit shutout of the Rockies on Friday.

Pomeranz rebounded from his worst outing of the year with perhaps it's best. This marks the fourth time in six starts that he's gone without allowing a run. Only Jake Arrieta, with five, has had more starts with zero runs allowed this year.
Jun 4 - 1:19 AM

Drew Pomeranz surrendered six earned runs over five innings Sunday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

It was the worst start of the season for Pomeranz, who entered the outing with a 1.70 ERA and left it with his ERA at 2.48. He struck out nine, but the Diamondbacks smacked five hits against him and drew four walks. Pomeranz will try to get back on the right track next time out against the Rockies.
May 29 - 6:56 PM

Drew Pomeranz blanked the Giants for seven innings in a no-decision Monday.

Pomeranz deserves much better than a 4-4 record for his performance so far. He's sporting a 1.70 ERA in nine starts, with 60 strikeouts in 53 innings. That's pretty good for a guy who was acquired for two players the Padres were thinking of non-tendering and who very nearly didn't make the rotation out of spring training.
May 24 - 1:23 AM

Drew Pomeranz fanned 10 while shutting out the Cubs for six innings in the Padres' 1-0 victory Wednesday.

Lo and behold, the Padres swept the Cubs in a doubleheader, sending Chicago to its first back-to-back losses of the year. Pomeranz allowed just three hits and walked three in improving to 4-3 with a 1.80 ERA. Meanwhile, the guy he could have started over in the Oakland rotation, Eric Surkamp, fell to 0-3 with a 6.55 ERA tonight. But at least the A's have Yonder Alonso.
May 11 - 11:07 PM

Drew Pomeranz allowed one hit over five innings and combined with four relievers on a shutout of the Mets on Friday.

Pomeranz needed 98 pitches to get his 15 outs, so he wasn't going to work deep into this one. Of course, pitch efficiency has always been an issue for him. Still, he's been awfully effective this year, with a 2.12 ERA in six starts. The A's surely wish they had him back right about now.
May 7 - 2:07 AM

Drew Pomeranz fell to 2-2 after allowing four runs -- three earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Monday against the Giants.

There's no shame in getting beat by the Giants offense with the way it's played this year, but Pomeranz made it a little too easy for Buster Posey and company with the three walks and two wild pitches he allowed. He still has a 2.86 ERA for the moment.
Apr 26 - 2:12 AM

Drew Pomeranz allowed just an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings and struck out 10 in defeating the Pirates on Wednesday.

Pomeranz probably would have been sent to the pen at the end of the spring had Brandon Maurer pitched better and he nearly was anyway, but here he is with at 2-1 with a 2.04 ERA and 25 strikeouts through three starts. He's a health risk going forward, but he needs to be owned in mixed leagues.
Apr 21 - 1:25 AM

Drew Pomeranz lost to the Phillies after allowing two runs in six innings and striking out eight on Thursday.

Pomeranz did his job, but the Padres offense didn't have his back in this one. After two starts, Pomeranz has a 3.38 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 11 innings. It looks like he'll be hanging around in the rotation for a while.
Apr 14 - 3:59 PM

Drew Pomeranz struck out seven and earned his first win of the 2016 season against the Rockies.

Pomeranz won a job in the Padres’ rotation, despite a shaky spring training, and the lefty celebrated with a strong start on Saturday in hitter-friendly Coors Field. While he surrendered a pair of earned runs and issued three walks in five innings against the Rockies, he struck out seven and could’ve gone deeper in the game if the Padres wouldn’t have pinch-hit for him during a three-run sixth inning. Pomeranz could be a sneaky source of strikeouts in deeper leagues. He’ll need to sharpen the command before he can be relevant in standard mixed leagues, though.
Apr 9 - 11:40 PM

Drew Pomeranz tossed four shutout innings, striking out four, in Saturday's Cactus League finale against the White Sox.

Pomeranz scattered two hits and a walk in his final turn before the regular season. It was also a nice reward for Padres manager Andy Green's confidence after Green announced on Friday that Pomeranz won the final spot in the team's rotation. The lefty has always held intrigue for his first-round pedigree, and there aren't many better home parks than Petco. There are worse end-game flyers to take.
Apr 2 - 7:22 PM

Padres manager Andy Green announced Friday that Drew Pomeranz has secured a spot in the club's Opening Day rotation.

This move comes as a bit of a surprise as most thought the left-hander would work out of the bullpen. Pitching half of his games at Petco Park and in the pitcher-friendly National League West, he immediately makes a very interesting option in all mixed leagues.
