A's SP Kendall Graveman improves FB location after demotion


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Athletics starting pitcher Kendall Graveman is returning to the major-league rotation Saturday against the Rays to fill in for the injured Drew Pomeranz, who is on the disabled list due to a shoulder injury.

Graveman struggled in his first stint in the rotation before being demoted to the minors, but he said his time at Triple-A Nashville helped him with his fastball location, per InsideBayArea.com. He added he was able to increase the miles per hour between his fastball and changeup.

The right-hander went 2-1 with a 1.85 ERA in four starts for Nashville. He had 14 strikeouts and nine walks in 24 1/3 innings.


Shelved Athletics SP Drew Pomeranz to throw next week


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Athletics left-handed starter Drew Pomeranz, who has been placed on the disabled list as expected with a shoulder issue, has received a cortisone shot and will resume throwing next week, per the San Francisco Chronicle.

The hope is that the shot will calm the inflammation that has prevented Pomeranz from going deep into games, which has become a greater concern given the struggles of his team's bullpen.

Pomeranz has pitched more than 5 1/3 innings only twice in eight outings, both of which were quality starts, and owns a 4.40 ERA.


Report: A's SP Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) heading to 15-day DL


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Athletics lefty starter Drew Pomeranz is reportedly heading to the disabled list on Wednesday. Pomeranz exited his start on Monday with shoulder tightness, and was able to play catch on Tuesday.

The issue was thought to have been minor originally, but clearly the team saw something they didn't like and opted to place him on the DL.

The team will recall right-hander Arnold Leon according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Arnold was up earlier this season and pitched one inning in relief. He's made five starts at Triple-A this year and has a 4.26 ERA with 30 strike outs and nine walks over 25 1/3 innings. However, he will pitch out of the bullpen now with the A's, according to the Bay Area News Group.


A's starter Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) plays catch Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Athletics left-hander Drew Pomeranz played catch on Tuesday after leaving Monday's start with tightness in his left shoulder. Pomeranz said he felt some "normal soreness" which he expected, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The team has not confirmed if Pomeranz will be forced to miss his next start, but it does not appear this injury as all too serious at this time.

"We're going to have him looked at," manager Bob Melvin said to Bay Area News Group. "We'll probably make a decision on where we are tomorrow. Obviously there’s a chance he will go on the DL.

"This is something that’s been going on for a while, and we don't want it to continue to go on, but we haven’t made a definitive decision."


A's P Drew Pomeranz suffers shoulder injury, leaves game


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz was forced to leave Monday night's game against the Astros due to left shoulder tightness, according to the Bay Area News Group. 

The injury occurred in the fifth inning with Pomeranz being checked on by manager Bob Melvin and a trainer. He was in the middle of an at-bat against Evan Gattis. Edward Mujica came into the game to relieve Pomeranz. After the game, Pomeranz said, via MLB.com, that the shoulder injury is the same AC joint problem he's had before. 

He said, via MLB.com, that it's an injury that generally isn't serious

Pomeranz's night ended with one earned run allowed, two hits, five walks and two strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings. 

Pomeranz now has a 4.40 ERA but got a no-decision since he left the game too early. Mujica picked up the win and is now 2-1. 

Pomeranz's next scheduled start is for Saturday against Rays. 


A's P Drew Pomeranz goes seven strong innings in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz allowed two runs in Wednesday evening's 9-2 win over the Red Sox. 

Pomeranz pitched seven innings and allowed four hits and struck out three batters. He did not give up a walk during his time in the game. Pomeranz now has a 4.66 ERA for the season. The win improves Pomeranz's season to 2-3. 


A's SP Drew Pomeranz struggles with control in loss on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) Athletics starter Drew Pomeranz struggled against the Twins in Thursday's 6-5 loss. Pomeranz (1-1) lasted just 4 1/3 innings and surrendered six runs (four earned) on three hits. He struck out two and walked five. This was the fifth consecutive start in which the left-hander did not go at least six innings.

"Instead of just going after guys and throwing strikes, I pretty much beat myself out there," Pomeranz said, per MLB.com. "You give up three hits and six runs, that should never happen."

Through six starts, Pomeranz owns a 5.12 ERA with 27 strikeouts. He is scheduled to toe the rubber next on Tuesday against the Red Sox.


Athletics LHP Drew Pomeranz scuffles again Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) The fine first start of the season for Athletics starter Drew Pomeranz is becoming more of a distant memory with every mediocre one.

Pomeranz added a fourth straight so-so effort Saturday in Texas. He again failed to make it through six innings, pitching 5 1/3 and surrendering three runs on eight hits with one walk and four strikeouts. He settled for a no-decision.

The lefty allowed just one run in the first after a single and double, but an RBI single by Adrian Beltre in the third and leadoff blast by Kyle Blanks in the sixth all but ended his night. He was lifted after throwing just 84 pitches.

Pomeranz, who has yielded 14 earned runs in his last 20 1/3 innings pitched, will try to reverse course Thursday in Minnesota.


Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz picks up no decision Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz allowed five runs, three earned, on six hits in five innings of work in Oakland's 7-6 loss to the Astros Sunday.

Pomeranz's issues began in the third when the first two batters of the inning reached safely before he walks Jed Lowrie to load the bases for Evan Gattis, who then singled to right to bring home two runs. Colby Rasmus then singled to right to bring home one more run in the inning.

The struggles continued in the fourth when Jake Marisnick ripped a two-run shot over the left center field wall, scoring Jason Castro. He would last one more inning before getting the hook.

Pomeranz, who remains 1-2 on the year, now boasts a 4.50 ERA in 22 innings. He will look to get back on track Saturday against the Rangers.


A's SP Drew Pomeranz suffers second straight loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Athletics starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz suffered his second loss of the season Tuesday against the Angels. Pomeranz (1-2) allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits and one walk, while striking out six in five-plus innings of a 14-1 loss.

Pomeranz tossed a scoreless first inning before the game started to get away from him in the second inning. He allowed a one-out, three-run homer to Johnny Giavotella. The Angels added a fourth run in the inning on a Marcus Semien fielding error, which allowed Kole Calhoun to score.

Pomeranz settled down after the rough second inning to post three scoreless innings before being lifted after allowing a leadoff double to C.J. Cron in the sixth inning. The Angels would score six times in the sixth inning after Pomeranz left the game.

Pomeranz, who has lost his last two starts, will look to stop his losing streak in his next start Sunday against Houston.


Athletics' Drew Pomeranz allows four runs in loss vs. Astros


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz took the loss Wednesday, surrendering four earned runs on six hits and one walk in five innings while striking out five in his team's 6-1 loss to the Astros.

Pomeranz (1-1) served up a two-run home run in the bottom of the first inning, and the Athletics were unable to scrape together enough offense to catch up over the remainder of the game.

"It's pretty frustrating," Pomeranz said after the game, per the Associated Press. "They got hits at the right time, and they took advantage of them."

Combined with his seven shutout innings in his debut, Pomeranz has posted a 3.00 ERA and 11:1 K:BB ratio in 12 innings. He'll square off with the Angels in his next start.


Drew Pomeranz throws 7.0 scoreless for A's to earn win


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/11/2015) Athletics starter Drew Pomeranz (1-0) scattered just two hits in 7.0 innings on Friday to defeat the Mariners and earn the win.

Pomeranz struck out six and didn't walk a batter.

Graveman No. 4, Pomeranz No. 5 as A's announce rotation


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Athletics manager Bob Melvin revealed his season-opening rotation Thursday, and Opening Day starter Sonny Gray will be followed in succession by Jesse Hahn, Scott Kazmir, Kendall Graveman and Drew Pomeranz, MLB.com reports.

Only Gray and Kazmir entered the spring as locks for the rotation, though Hahn was a good bet to also earn a spot. Graveman, a rookie who made his major-league debut last year and logged five relief appearances in September, surrendered just one earned run in 21 1/3 innings while striking out 11 batters and walking four this spring. Pomeranz fared well in 10 starts and 10 relief appearances in 2014 and posted a 2.04 ERA and 25:8 K:BB ratio in 17 2/3 spring innings.


Athletics' Jesse Chavez hints he's headed to the bullpen


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez told reporters that "the writing is on the wall" and indicated that he'll likely start the season in the bullpen.

"I think they had their minds made up from the beginning. But we'll see what happens," Chavez said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Chavez allowed one run on three hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings of work on Wednesday against the Angels. He posted a 4.50 ERA, a 1.75 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB ratio over 16 innings this spring. If he is demoted to the bullpen as a long reliever and spot starter, the A's will likely go will left-hander Drew Pomeranz as their fifth starter.


A's P Drew Pomeranz tosses six scoreless innings in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz pitched six scoreless innings during Monday's 11-2 blowout win over the Rockies. 

Pomeranz gave up only two hits and one walk while striking out six batters. 

"He pitched well. He pitched really good," Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez said of Pomeranz, via MLB.com. "He was hitting spots. His curveball was effective today, too. He has that big curveball. I've never faced him before. I saw the ball really well coming out of his hands."


Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz dealing with hip tightness


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz is dealing slight tightness in his right hip that came up during warmups Tuesday, according to CSN California.

Pomeranz, who has posted a 2.00 ERA in three starts, has dealt with the issue in the past and said it doesn't normally last beyond a day.

"It never loosened up," Pomeranz said to MLB.com. "I thought it would and it didn't, so I was fighting myself, fighting my front side the whole day. Made it a little difficult to fill up the zone."

He went 2 2/3 innings Tuesday, allowing two runs on three hits.


Athletics' Pomeranz strikes out five, allows one run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz surrendered one earned run on four hits and one walk in four innings while striking out five in his team's 4-0 loss to the Mariners Wednesday.

"I’m trying to fill up the (strike) zone," Pomeranz said after the outing, per the Contra Costa Times. "I got the ball a little up in the first inning. After that there were a lot more low strikes. I felt pretty good. I just need to build up stamina for a higher pitch count."

Pomeranz has been a strikeout machine in camp, racking up 15 punchouts against three walks in nine innings over three spring appearances. His only blemish Wednesday came on an RBI single in his final inning of work.

Manager Bob Melvin called Pomeranz "in the mix" for a rotation spot after the outing. "He has been from the beginning," Melvin said.

Pomeranz is competing to open the season in the Oakland rotation after going 5-4 with a 2.35 ERA and 64:26 K:BB ratio in 69 innings last year.


Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz posts solid outing Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz is happy to get his first spring training start out of the way Sunday, reports MLB.com. The 26-year-old felt he overthrew a bit in his two scoreless innings. 

"You almost feel a little too good, and you have to learn to harness it a little bit," said Pomeranz. "For me, that's maybe what I needed to settle down and just make pitches."

Pomeranz is in a battle this spring with Jesse Chavez to be the club's long inning reliever.

"Both have been successful doing both, but they have been here and they have proven they can pitch in the rotation," said manager Bob Melvin. "We like both those guys, so I don't want to count it against them because they can pitch out of the bullpen."


Drew Pomeranz earns the no decision


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) 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.


Drew Pomeranz to fill in for Jason Hammel Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel will miss Saturday's scheduled start due to the birth of his second child, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Drew Pomeranz will make a spot start in his place.

Athletics add Drew Pomeranz, Nate Freiman back to roster


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) 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
(8/28/2014) 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
(8/28/2014) 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.


Drew Pomeranz doesn't factor into the decision


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Astros.

Pomeranz gave up one run on three hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked one during the outing. Pomeranz was fantastic early, holding the Astros scoreless over the first five innings. His only run came due to an error. With one out in the sixth inning, Eric Sogard allowed Jose Altuve to reach first on a fielding error. Pomeranz gave up a single to the next hitter, and was pulled from the game. Altuve came around to score on a wild pitch later in the inning. The run was charged to Pomeranz.

The Astros managed a comeback, giving Pomeranz a no-decision. He’ll take on the Mariners in his next start.


Drew Pomeranz up, Nate Frieman down for Oakland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) The Athletics have recalled left-hander Drew Pomeranz from Triple-A Sacramento and dispatched first baseman Nate Freiman to Class-A Beloit.

Pomeranz is set to start Wednesday night in Houston.
