    A's pitcher Drew Pomeranz appears headed for shoulder surgery

    Athletics left-hander Drew Pomeranz is slated for arthroscopic surgery on the AC joint in his left shoulder, John Hick of the Bay Area News Group reports.After making his last appearance of the season on Sept. 26, Pomeranz soon returned to Oakland in order to have an MRI on his shoulder, which revealed damage to the AC joint. While the extent of the ailment isn't known and surgery hasn't been scheduled, an arthroscopic procedure signals a shorter recovery timeline. As a result, the left-handed reliever should be available by the time camp rolls around next March.

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

    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.

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.
