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.


Drew Pomeranz starting Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz will start Wednesday against the Astros, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

The club was considering Pomeranz for a spot start in order to line up their best four pitchers for an upcoming series against the Angels. Pomeranz has a 2.91 ERA over 55 2/3 innings in the majors. 


Jesse Chavez, Drew Pomeranz being considered for spot start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Athletics pitchers Jesse Chavez and Drew Pomeranz are being considered for a spot start next week, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

The A's want to line up their pitching staff so that their top four pitchers will face off against the Angels in an upcoming series. The team would add either Chavez or Pomeranz for a spot start in this scenario. 


Drew Pomeranz optioned to minors after DL activation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz (hand) was activated off the 15-day disabled list and then optioned to Triple-A Sacramento Sunday. The A's did not have a rotation spot for Pomeranz after trading for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel.

Drew Pomeranz looks sharp in first rehab start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz (hand) began a minor-league rehab assignment Saturday afternoon with Triple-A Sacramento.

Pomeranz allowed one run on one hit and no walks while striking out seven over four innings of work. His only damage was a home run to Garrett Weber. It remains to be seen how many starts he'll need before he returns from the disabled list.


Drew Pomeranz to try playing catch Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz will attempt to play catch Monday after receiving good news from an MRI earlier in the day, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Pomeranz's broken hand is healing, so he'll look to take the next step in his recovery. Pomeranz suffered the injury in mid-June while taking out some frustrations on a clubhouse chair. The team has added two arms to the rotation via a trade with the Cubs since the injury.


Drew Pomeranz begins throwing without glove


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz threw for the first time since hitting the disabled Tuesday, as he continues to recover from a fractured right hand.

Pomeranz threw without a glove on his non-pitching hand, according to MLB.com, as he has not healed enough to catch the ball at this point. He completed a bullpen session, as the team tries to keep his arm sharp while he waits for the glove hand to heal. 


Drew Pomeranz hits DL after emotions get best of him


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Following his worst start of the season, Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz decided to take his frustration out on a chair in the clubhouse Monday. Unfortunately for Pomeranz, the chair got the best of the battle, as he was forced to the disabled list with a fractured right hand.

"I just let my emotions take over me, and I did something stupid," Pomeranz told MLB.com Tuesday. "Obviously, I didn't mean for it to happen. It sucks because I want to play, I want to pitch. I'm trying to win games and help the team out. Obviously, I'm not helping the team out when I do something stupid like that."

Pomeranz was tagged with eight runs in three-plus innings of work Monday, matching his total from the previous seven. Fortunately, the injury is on his non-pitching hand, so Pomeranz will still be able to throw while he recovers. There is no timetable at this point for his return.

"Hopefully, I'll be back as soon as possible," said Pomeranz. "This is the first time I've broken a bone, though, so I don't know." 


Athletics put Drew Pomeranz on disabled list


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) The Athletics placed lefty pitcher Drew Pomeranz on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right hand. Pomeranz is 5-4 with a 2.91 ERA in 17 games this year, including eight starts.

Newly-acquired Brad Mills is expected to replace Pomeranz in the rotation.


Drew Pomeranz roughed up in loss vs. Rangers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz endured a rough outing Monday, giving up eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits and two walks in just 3 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 14-8 loss to the Rangers.

Pomeranz (5-4) surrendered a two-run single in the second inning before coming unglued in the fourth, when he was pulled after giving up four hits and two walks in the inning, including a home run. His ERA shot up from 1.90 to 2.91 in the loss, and he owns a 48:23 K:BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings. Pomeranz is scheduled to face the Red Sox Saturday.


Drew Pomeranz gives up unearned run in no-decision Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz wasn't a factor in Tuesday's decision, giving up just one unearned run on four hits and three walks in seven innings while striking out two in his team's extra-innings game against the Angels.

Pomeranz allowed the first run of the game to score on a sixth-inning single, but his team was able to even the game in the eigthth inning to take him off the hook. He owns a 1.90 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 44:24 K:BB ratio in 52 innings. Pomeranz is scheduled to take on the Rangers Monday.


Drew Pomeranz removes all doubt


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) I was bullish on Drew Pomeranz even before he joined the Athletics starting rotation in early May, seeing him as a clear victim of the Coors effect given the prospect he was before landing with the Rockies. And the way he dominated in his first three starts only seemed to validate my theory.

But none were more than five innings, which made sense as he transitioned from the bullpen but raised concerns regardless. And then when he followed those three dominant starts with two shaky ones (again, neither lasting six innings) I'll admit my confidence wavered -- not so much that I was dropping him or anything, but enough that I wondered privately if I had oversold him on videos, podcasts and posts such as this one.

Given his performance at the Yankees Thursday, my confidence is fully restored and then some. He went not only six innings, but seven, and threw consistent strikes after battling control issues in those two shaky starts, finishing with just one walk to seven strikeouts.

He took the loss -- which is the price for going against Masahiro Tanaka -- but even with several good starts already on his resume, this was Pomeranz's best. Now that you can trust he's fully stretched out, he's definitively must-own.


Drew Pomeranz earns hard luck loss Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz earned a hard luck loss Thursday against the Yankees.

Pomeranz performed well, giving up just two runs, one earned, over 7 innings. After Brian McCann reached second on an error, Alfonso Soriano drove him in to tie the game at one. Brett Gardner provided the spark the following inning, hitting a solo home run. 

The Athletics were shut down by Masahiro Tanaka, meaning Pomeranz took the loss despite pitching well. He allowed six hits and one walk during the appearance. Pomeranz struck out seven hitters. The loss dropped him to 5-3 on the year. His next start is slated to come against the Angels.


Drew Pomeranz hit hard in win over Angels


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz (5-2) got hit hard on Friday, but received enough run support to come away with the win against the Angels. He was charged with five runs on four hits and three walks while striking out five in 5 1/3 innings of a 9-5 victory.

Pomeranz owns a 2.37 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP through his first 38 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Thursday against the Yankees in New York. He owns a 2.41 ERA in 18 2/3 innings away from home this season.

Drew Pomeranz wild in loss


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz, who entered Sunday on a 15-inning scoreless streak, struggled with his control in a 3-1 loss to the Blue Jays. Pomeranz allowed two runs on five hits and four walks in four innings, fanning three.

Pomeranz (4-2) saw his ERA climb to 1.38 after tossing 90 pitches, 54 for strikes, and giving up a solo homer to Edwin Encarnacion. He'll make his fifth start Friday against the Angels.


Drew Pomeranz tosses five scoreless innings again Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz kept up his string of scoreless innings Tuesday, blanking the Rays for five innings while giving up three hits and two walks and striking out three in his team's 3-0 win over the Rays.

Pomeranz (4-1) has turned in five scoreless innings in each of his three starts since joining the rotation to drop his ERA under 1.00. He didn't quite have the strikeout numbers of his previous two starts Tuesday, but he now owns a 0.94 ERA and 27:10 K:BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings. He'll try to keep rolling when he faces the Blue Jays Sunday.


Drew Pomeranz continues to make his case


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/14/2014) If it isn't clear already -- and judging by his 64 percent ownership rate, it isn't -- Drew Pomeranz needs to be added in all leagues.

He followed up the spot start that earned him a full-time rotation spot with another gem Tuesday against a more formidable opponent in the White Sox. Yeah, he went only five innings again, but after spending the first month in the bullpen, he's still building up his pitch count. He threw 82 in this one compared to 68 in his previous start.

Of greater note, he has yet to allow a run as a starting pitcher, allowing just seven batters to reach base while recording 13 strikeouts in 10 innings. It's the kind of performance you'd expect from a front-line pitcher, which is what Pomeranz projected to be when the Indians took him fifth overall in the 2010. He might have already become one if he hadn't gotten sidetracked in Colorado, where the physics of the game work a little differently.

Given how highly regarded he was before landing in Colorado and how effective he's been since leaving, I'm ready to conclude it was the source of all his struggles, which makes this transition back to the starting role especially encouraging.


Drew Pomeranz strikes out eight in five scoreless innings Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz surrendered just three hits and two walks in five scoreless innings while striking out eight to earn a win in his team's 11-0 win over the White Sox Tuesday.

Pomeranz (3-1) has tossed 10 scoreless innings and struck out 13 batters since being transitioned into the rotation due to injury. Including his relief work, he owns a 1.14 ERA and 24:8 K:BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings. Pomeranz is on track to face the Rays Tuesday.


Drew Pomeranz a must-add in Fantasy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/12/2014) After he threw five shutout innings against the Mariners in a spot start Wednesday, I wrote that Drew Pomeranz was worth a speculative stash in case the Athletics chose to make him a permanent member of their starting rotation down the line. Little did I know it was already in the works.

Now that he has a spot to call his own with the demotion of Dan Straily, Pomeranz is more than just a speculative stash. He needs to be owned in all leagues, as Jon Heyman and I discussed on Monday's Fantasy Baseball Today.

It's not quite the same as a top prospect ascending to the role -- Pomeranz exhausted his rookie eligility years ago -- but given his upside, it's deserving of that kind of hype. As I mentioned before, he was the fifth overall pick in the 2010 draft -- a prospect so highly regarded that when the Indians traded him along three others for Ubaldo Jimenez in 2011, most pundits believed they had given up too much.

Pomeranz couldn't make it in Colorado, as is the case for most pitchers who attempt it, but the Athletics seem to have gotten him back on track. If that's the case, he could be instrumental for your Fantasy team down the stretch.
