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.

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.

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.

Drew Pomeranz allowed just an unearned run over 5 1/3 innings and struck out seven against the Astros on Wednesday.

It wasn't enough to get Pomeranz a win, but it was a performance that could earn him more starts in September, depending on how things go with Jason Hammel. He'll probably be optioned back to Triple-A now, but he'll be worth playing in mixed leagues if he's needed again.

Athletics recalled LHP Drew Pomeranz from Triple-A Sacramento.

Pomeranz will start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros. He had a strong 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being demoted in July and makes for a good fantasy streamer in Houston.
Wed, Aug 27, 2014 04:10:00 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin confirmed Monday that Drew Pomeranz will be recalled to start on Wednesday versus the Astros.

The A's will use a sixth starter for one turn in order to set up the top four of their starting rotation for a big four-game weekend set in Anaheim. Pomeranz held a 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being bumped to Triple-A Sacramento in July by the Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija trade. He makes for a decent fantasy streamer versus the Astros.

Drew Pomeranz is likely to start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros.

The A's will use a sixth starter this week in Houston to line up the top four of their starting rotation for a big four-game weekend set in Anaheim. Pomeranz had a cool 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being bumped to Triple-A Sacramento in July by the Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija trade. He should make for a decent fantasy streamer versus the light-hitting 'Stros.

The Athletics are considering using Drew Pomeranz or Jesse Chavez to make a spot start next week.

The idea would be to use a sixth starter for one turn in order to line up their four best starters for the August 28-31 series versus the Angels. Both Pomeranz and Chavez have pitched well when in the A's rotation this season but were booted when the club acquired Jeff Samardzija, Jason Hammel and Jon Lester.

Athletics activated LHP Drew Pomeranz from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

Pomeranz made a rehab start Saturday, as his fractured right hand is no longer an issue. However, he's no longer needed in the rotation following the addition of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. The lefty will represent depth at Triple-A.

Drew Pomeranz (hand) allowed one run over four innings Saturday in his rehab debut at Triple-A Sacramento.

He struck out seven, walked none, and yielded just one hit -- a solo home run. The left-hander is expected to remain at Sacramento when he's deemed healthy as an emergency option for the Oakland rotation. He's been out since June 17 with a broken right hand.
