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.


Drew Pomeranz will remain in the rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz was a logical choice to step into the rotation following Dan Straily's demotion, and manager Bob Melvin confirmed as much Friday.

"He has pitched his way into this role," Melvin told MLB.com. "It's difficult to be that long guy, too, when you're not getting regular work. But each and every time we've called on him, he's done a good job for us, and certainly in a starting role, as we saw the day before yesterday."

Pomeranz impressed in a brief starting opportunity Wednesday, as he tossed five shutout innings in a doubleheader against the Mariners. He now has a 1.45 ERA with 16 strikeouts and only six walks in 18 2/3 innings of work on the season.

Pomeranz will likely make his next start Monday against the White Sox. 


Drew Pomeranz set to stick in Oakland rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) A surprisingly effective stint in the bullpen, strong start Wednesday and demotion of Dan Straily have likely combined to open up a permanent rotation spot for Athletics left-hander Drew Pomeranz, per the San Francisco Chronicle.

The 25-year-old Pomeranz, who yielded two hits and fanned five in five shutout innings against Seattle, is 2-1 with a 1.45 ERA this season. He has developed far better control, walking six in 18 2/3 innings after allowing 19 in 21 2/3 innings a year ago.


Drew Pomeranz worth a speculative stash


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) Let me preface this analysis by saying it's not for every league. On the spectrum of stashes, Drew Pomeranz still ranks behind Trevor Bauer, and obviously, an upside pitcher who already has a starting role, like Shelby Miller or Zack Wheeler, is more valuable than an upside pitcher who doesn't. But just in case Pomeranz's impressive spot start against the Mariners Wednesday opens the door for him to replace Tommy Milone down the line, I'd be looking to stash him in leagues deep enough to justify it.

He's an upside pitcher himself, lest you forget -- the prize of the deal that sent Ubaldo Jimenez to the Indians in 2011. Jimenez was coming off a near-Cy Young season in 2010, and yet the consensus at the time was that the Rockies won the deal. The fifth overall pick in the 2010 draft, Pomeranz was considered something special.

But of course, Coors Field has a way of ruining even the most special, first by preventing the numbers they're used to and then by instilling them with bad habits as they seek to "correct" themselves.

Pomeranz's start confirmed what his relief work suggested: Now that he's back in a normal pitching environment, he's deserving of hype all over again.


Drew Pomeranz tosses five scoreless innings in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz shined in a spot start Wednesday, giving up two hits in five scoreless innings while striking out five to earn a win in his team's 2-0 victory over the Mariners in the second leg of a doubleheader.

Pomeranz (2-1) worked well around the zone Wednesday, throwing 47 of his 68 pitches for strikes. Despite his excellent performance, his presence in the rotation was likely a one-time thing caused by a doubleheader. He owns a 1.45 ERA and 16:6 K:BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings.


Drew Pomeranz tabbed to start Game 2 of doubleheader


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz will get the start for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Mariners, MLB.com reports.

Pomeranz last pitched on Friday, tossing 2 1/3 innings of relief. He is 1-1 with a 1.98 ERA and 11:6 K:BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings.


Drew Pomeranz could get start Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz is likely to get the call for the second half of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Mariners, according to MLB.com.

Assuming Pomeranz is not needed to pitch out of the bullpen Tuesday, he will likely take the mound as a starter for the first time this season Wednesday. Pomeranz has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen for the first time in his career, posting a 1.98 ERA in nine appearances, but could get up to 75 pitches as the team tries to stretch him out. 


Reliever Drew Pomeranz could start in Wednesday doubleheader


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Athletics manager Bob Melvin isn't ruling out starting Drew Pomeranz in one of Wednesday's games against the Mariners, reports MLB.com. Pomeranz is 1-1 with a 1.98 ERA in nine relief appearances.

Drew Pomeranz earns the loss Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz picked up the loss Wednesday against the Angels.

In his second inning of work, Pomeranz looked strong early, getting two easy outs. After a routine groundout and a pop out to the catcher, Pomeranz ran into trouble with Chris Iannetta. On the first pitch he saw, Iannetta hit a walkoff home run out to center field. 

Pomeranz finished the appearance with two hits, one earned run and one strikeout in 1 2/3 innings. His record fell to 1-1 on the season.


Drew Pomeranz picks up win in extra-inning thriller


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz worked just one of 12 innings in Thursday's game against the Mariners, but that was enough for him to earn his first win of the season in a 3-2, 12-inning victory.

Pomeranz worked a silent top of the 12th, retiring the Mariners in order on 15 pitches, with one groundball and two flyball outs. Coco Crisp gave Pomeranz the win with a walk-off home run in the bottom half of the inning.

Pomeranz is working out of the bullpen for the Athletics, after spending much of his career as a starter. He has one strikeout and two walks in two hitless innings so far.  


Drew Pomeranz stretched out to start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) Athletics manager Bob Melvin told reporters Monday pitcher Drew Pomeranz will be stretched out to start after the rash of injuries that has impacted the starting rotation. The San Francisco Chronicle suggests Pomeranz will open the year at Triple-A Sacramento and provide starting pitcher depth for the organization.

Drew Pomeranz fans two in first appearance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Athletics starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz is considered an unlikely rotation candidate, and will have to impress in the spring to have a chance. He looked solid in his first exhibition start Saturday against the Rangers.

Pomeranz pitched just one inning in relief, despite throwing just nine pitches, eight for strikes. He hit one batter with a pitch and allowed one hit, before stranding both runners with an inning-ending strikeout, one of two in the inning.

Pomeranz has failed to live up to his lofty former top prospect status in parts of three seasons with the Rockies. He finished 2013 with a 6.23 ERA in 21 2/3 innings of work.
