A's pitcher Aaron Brooks to start Saturday; Pomeranz stays in 'pen


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) New Athletics right-hander Aaron Brooks will make his first start of the season on Saturday. Brooks was involved in the just-completed Ben Zobrist deal from the Royals. He'll toe the rubber on Saturday against the Indians.

Brooks made a pair of starts for the Royals in 2014. This year he has seen action out of the bullpen for Kansas City--two relief appearances to be exact. He has made 18 appearances (17 starts) at Triple-A Omaha. There he was 6-5 with a 3.71 ERA.

Having Brooks in the rotation will keep lefty Drew Pomeranz in the bullpen for now. It is not clear if this will be a permanent situation.


Sunday stint scratches start for Athletics P Drew Pomeranz


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2015) Bob Melvin has declared that the scheduled start Wednesday for Athletics left-hander Drew Pomeranz has been scratched. Jesse Chavez will likely toe the rubber instead against the host Dodgers, per MLB.com, since he will be on his regular rest.

Athletics P Drew Pomeranz removed in second Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2015) The Athletics turned to Drew Pomeranz to start Thursday against Toronto after felly southpaw Scott Kazmir was traded. By the second inning, they might have wished they had turned elsewhere.

They didn't give Pomeranz much of a chance, however. He walked one and fanned three in the first, then allowed a two-run homer to Russell Martin with none out in the second. He threw just 44 pitches before getting taken out. He received a no-decision.

Pomeranz was making his first start since May 18, which explains the short leash.

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

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."

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.
