Drew Pomeranz earns the no decision
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/20/14) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz turned in a scoreless start Saturday against the Phillies.
Pomeranz allowed one hit over five scoreless innings. He struck out six and walked two during the outing. Pomeranz was masterful, giving up his only hit in the first inning. He actually loaded the bases during the frame after walking and hitting a batter with a pitch, but was able to get out of it. Pomeranz would settle in at that point, tossing three perfect innings. He allowed a walk in the fifth, but got out of it without giving up any runs. Pomeranz was pulled after throwing 86 pitches.
Pomeranz earned the no-decision for his performance. He’ll take on the Rangers if he gets another start.

Athletics add Drew Pomeranz, Nate Freiman back to roster
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/2/14) The Athletics recalled pitcher Drew Pomeranz and first baseman Nate Freiman Tuesday, as part of their expanded roster. Both players have been up and down with the team this season, including within the last week for both.
Drew Pomeranz sent down following spot start
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/28/14) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz was sent down to Class A Beloit Thursday, following his successful spot start Wednesday.
Pomeranz should be back in the majors after rosters expand, but there might not be an opening in the rotation for him. He could be used as a spot starter or reliever if he does get brought back to the majors in September.
Drew Pomeranz better for tomorrow than today
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(8/28/14) If you picked up Drew Pomeranz for his spot start Wednesday, he did exactly what you hoped he would. OK, so he fell short of a quality start, but for the 5 1/3 innings he pitched, he looked like the resurgent prospect who made eight starts for the Athletics in May and June -- the one who never should have lost his rotation spot in the first place -- allowing one unearned run on five hits with one walk and seven strikeouts.
Now if only he'd get the chance to do it again.
I'd put it at slim to none. The Athletics only gave him this start so they could line up their rotation exactly the way they want it for their upcoming series against the Angels. They don't have an opening for Pomeranz beyond that. Jason Hammel has bounced back after a rocky start with the Athletics, and they'd be crazy to go six-man after working all July to stockpile their rotation with established (not to mention front-line) innings eaters. In redraft leagues, he's probably a waste of time.
But in keeper leagues and particularly dynasty leagues, as I mention in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, you may not want to cut him loose just yet. Surely, he has the inside track on a starting job next year with Hammel and Jon Lester destined for free agency. Granted, Jarrod Parker and A.J. Griffin are due back from Tommy John surgery at some point, but he'll have established himself by then.
And if, either by sticking around or returning when the minor-league season ends in September, Pomeranz makes just one relief appearance before the end of the year, he'll be eligible at relief pitcher to begin 2015.
|2014 summary: When Dan Straily didn't work out in the Athletics' rotation, it was Drew Pomeranz who got the call to replace him. Pomeranz earned the promotion with strong work out of the A's bullpen, and he continued to perform well as a starter, compiling a 3.21 ERA through his first eight turns. Much of the damage occurred in his eighth start, and after the game, he broke his hand by punching a chair. Pomeranz would go on to make only three more appearances, and he ended the year with a 5-4 record and a 2.35 ERA over 69 innings.|
Playing time status: Pomeranz is positioned to begin the season in the A's rotation. However, when A.J. Griffin and Jarrod Parker complete their recoveries from Tommy John surgery, Pomeranz could be one of the odd men out, as he has relief experience.
2015 outlook: Departing Colorado after three seasons with the Rockies is a good development for any pitcher, and it certainly did wonders for Pomeranz's ERA and WHIP. He also helped himself by improving his control, but Pomeranz likely overperformed as a result of an ultra-low .246 BABIP. Because he has strikeout potential, Pomeranz should be drafted in deeper mixed leagues, but because he still has some control issues, he can go undrafted in standard mixed leagues.
