  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Not yet throwing from mound

    Pomeranz (elbow) has been regularly playing catch from 120 feet but hasn't yet thrown from a mound, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Pomeranz is eligible to return from the injured list in less than a month, but it's unclear if he'll be immediately ready given where he is at in his recovery at this point. The left-hander figures to play a prominent role in San Diego's bullpen whenever he is able to return.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Goes on 60-day IL

    The Padres placed Pomeranz (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    San Diego's decision to place Pomeranz on the 60-day IL frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for infielder/outfielder Matt Beaty, whom the team acquired via trade from the Dodgers in a corresponding move. The Padres had already ruled out Pomeranz for the start of the season while he remains limited to throwing off flat ground in his rehab program from elbow surgery, and the transaction now ensures that he'll remain sidelined until at least early June. Due to the time he'll miss to begin the season, Pomeranz appears unlikely to factor into the Padres' unsettled closer situation, at least not initially when he ultimately returns.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Doubtful for Opening Day

    Pomeranz is playing catch but remains doubtful for Opening Day as he works his way back from flexor tendon surgery, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Pomeranz underwent the procedure back in August. While it's a positive that he's been able to play catch, he's yet to throw off a mound. The lefty has closer upside once he's eventually healthy, as he owns a 1.62 ERA and a 33.7 percent strikeout rate over the last two innings, but injuries have unfortunately been the story throughout much of the veteran's career.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Pomeranz (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    Pomeranz has been ruled out for the season after he underwent surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon last week, so his move to the 60-day IL is simply procedural. The transaction makes room for Jurickson Profar, who was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Done for season

    Pomeranz (torn flexor tendon) will have surgery Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the season, Annie Heilbrunn of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Pomeranz had been sidelined with left forearm inflammation -- his second IL stint with that designation over the past six weeks. He also missed significant time earlier this season with a lat injury. Pomeranz is under contract with San Diego for the 2022 and 2023 seasons. He finishes the year with a 1.75 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 25.2 innings.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Hits IL with forearm inflammation

    Pomeranz was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to right forearm inflammation, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Though he scooped up his 13th hold of the season and lowered his ERA to 1.75 during his relief appearance in Tuesday's win over the Marlins, Pomeranz exited the contest after experiencing pain in his forearm, an injury manager Jayce Tingler indicated was "very similar" to what the lefty has dealt with off and on throughout the season, per Dennis Lin of The Athletic. Pomeranz could be sent in for additional tests before the Padres have a clear sense of when he'll be ready to return, but given the recurring nature of his forearm problems, it wouldn't be surprising if he was sidelined for more than the minimum 10 days.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Notches first win

    Pomeranz (1-0) won Saturday's 6-2 matchup with the Diamondbacks, allowing one hit in the eighth inning.

    Pomeranz took over a 2-2 game in the eighth and fired 11 of 13 pitches for strikes to keep Arizona off the board before San Diego scored four runs in the bottom of the inning to put the lefty in line for the win. Surprisingly enough, this was Pomeranz's first decision despite appearing in 26 games. He now sports a robust 1.80 ERA with 10 walks and 30 strikeouts in 25 innings.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Secures 10th hold

    Pomeranz earned a hold in Friday's contest against Miami, pitching a scoreless inning during which he gave up on one walk and struck out one batter.

    Pomeranz came on to protect a three-run lead in the eighth inning. Though he walked the first batter he faced, the lefty reliever subsequently induced a double play before striking out Adam Duvall to end the frame. Since returning from the injured list last weekend, Pomeranz has given up one earned run and notched a 3:1 K:BB while collecting two holds over three one-inning outings.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Back from injured list

    Pomeranz (forearm) was reinstated from the injured list Saturday.

    Pomeranz has been limited to just 17 innings this season while battling both lat and forearm injuries. He's been quite effective when available, however, striking out 31.4 percent of opposing batters en route to a 1.59 ERA. He should fill a high-leverage role upon his return, but closer Mark Melancon has done nothing to suggest he's about to relinquish his hold on the ninth inning.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Lands on IL

    The Padres placed Pomeranz on the 10-day injured list Friday with left forearm inflammation.

    The lefty has appeared in four games since returning from a lat injury June 29, allowing three hits and walking two in 3.1 scoreless innings. Per Dennis Lin of The Athletic, manager Jayce Tingler said Friday that Pomeranz could be activated when he's first eligible to come off the IL on July 17, so the injury doesn't appear to be serious as of now.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Notches hold in return

    Pomeranz picked up a hold in Tuesday's win over the Reds, allowing one walk and striking out one batter over a scoreless inning.

    The left-hander didn't have his best control in the contest -- he threw only eight of 19 pitches for strikes and uncorked a wild pitch-- but he still managed to complete a scoreless frame and pick up his sixth hold of the campaign. Pomeranz's rustiness is understandable given that he hadn't pitched for the Padres since May 9. Despite the long layoff, he remains in line for high-leverage work as one of San Diego's top setup men.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Reinstated Tuesday

    Pomeranz (lat) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to Tuesday's game against the Reds.

    The southpaw threw a live batting practice session Saturday. Despite Pomeranz being out since May 9 with lat tightness, the Friars will opt to skip sending the reliever on a rehab assignment. Pomeranz struck out 20 while posting a 1.98 ERA across 13.2 innings before the injury, and he shouldn't take long to resume working in high-leverage situations going forward.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Slated to toss live BP

    Pomeranz (shoulder/lat) is expected to throw a live batting-practice session Saturday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Pomeranz tossed to live hitters Wednesday for the first time since suffering a setback during a similar session May 25, and he appears to have come out without any issues given Saturday's scheduled live bullpen. The veteran reliever will likely go on a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso once he's ready to return to game action, per Sanders. Pomeranz remains on track to rejoin the Padres in early July.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Tosses bullpen session

    Pomeranz (lat) threw a bullpen session Thursday, reports.

    The left-hander's bullpen session represents a major step toward a return as it marks his first such session since he experienced a setback in his recovery in late May. Manager Jayce Tingler indicated that Pomeranz will throw at least one more bullpen session before facing live hitters, and it is uncertain whether he will need a rehab stint before returning to the big club. He remains unlikely to rejoin the big club until early July.

  • Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Remains weeks away from return

    Pomeranz (lat) is still a few weeks away from making a rehab assignment, the Associated Press reports.

    When the lefty reliever went down with lat tightness in mid-May, there was optimism that his stay on the injured list could be short, and he was back to throwing soon after suffering the injury. However, Pomeranz subsequently experienced a setback while throwing to hitters, and he has yet to return to a mound. Given manager Jayce Tingler's indication Monday that Pomeranz won't make a rehab appearance for at least a couple weeks, the reliever's earliest possible return to the majors appears to be sometime in early July.
