Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Undergoes elbow 'cleanup'
Padres manager Bob Melvin said Pomeranz underwent "cleanup surgery" on his elbow Tuesday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
It sounds like arthroscopic surgery, which carries a far shorter timetable than other elbow procedures and will keep hope alive that Pomeranz can be a contributor at some point in 2023. He hasn't appeared in a major-league game since 2021 due to a range of different injuries, the most notable of those being a flexor tendon strain.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Bumped to 60-day IL
The Padres transferred Pomeranz (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.
The move clears up a spot on the 40-man roster for Drew Carlton, who had his contract selected from Triple-A El Paso prior to Monday's clash against Kansas City. Pomeranz is currently rehabbing from a left elbow flexor tendon surgery and remains without a firm timetable for a return after being pulled off his rehab assignment in late April due to left arm discomfort....

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Resuming rehab assignment
Pomeranz (arm) will join Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday to begin a rehab assignment.
Pomeranz opened the season on the 15-day injured list while he continued to recover from left elbow flexor tendon surgery, and though he started up a rehab assignment April 18, he made just three appearances before being shut down after experiencing renewed discomfort in his surgically repaired arm. He was idle for about a week before he resumed throwing again, and he now appears ready to test himself in a competitive setting. Expect Pomeranz to make at least a couple of appearances for El Paso before the Padres consider activating him.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Showing improvement
Pomeranz is experiencing reduced discomfort in his left arm, and he could resume his throwing progression soon, per MLB.com.
Pomeranz was pulled from a minor-league rehab assignment after just one game in late April as a result of discomfort in his throwing arm, but the issue has reportedly "mostly subsided." The veteran reliever appears to have a chance to start throwing again soon, though the Padres may want to be cautious given the series of setbacks Pomeranz has experienced as he's attempted to work his way back to the big club. The 34-year-old hasn't pitched in the majors since 2021.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Shut down from throwing program
Pomeranz (neck) has been shut down after experiencing discomfort in his throwing arm during his latest rehab appearance, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The veteran southpaw gave up three earned runs while recording one out in his most recent rehab appearance with Triple-A El Paso, likely suffering the injury during that appearance. Pomeranz was returning from flexor tendon surgery when a neck strain delayed his rehab in early April, and now his arm has started barking again. He should be considered out indefinitely....

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Moves rehab to Triple-A
Pomeranz (neck/elbow) shifted his rehab assignment to Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Pomeranz logged two perfect innings with Single-A Lake Elsinore and should finally be cleared to return to the Padres' bullpen after maybe one or two appearances with El Paso. The lefty reliever hasn't pitched in a major-league game since 2021 due to flexor tendon surgery and subsequent complications.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Getting closer to return
Pomeranz (neck/elbow) will need at least one one more rehab outing before being activated from the injured list, per MLB.com.
Pomeranz has appeared in two games with Single-A Lake Elsinore thus far, hurling two perfect innings and notching one strikeout. It appears the veteran hurler could be ready to join the Padres' bullpen after one more rehab outing, which would be a much-needed boost to a relief corps that is currently without Robert Suarez (elbow) and fellow lefty Adrian Morejon (elbow), among others. Pomeranz hasn't pitched in a big-league game since August of 2021, so he may be used in lower-leverage situations initially.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Hurls perfect frame in rehab outing
Pomeranz (neck/elbow) struck out one batter in a perfect inning for Single-A Lake Elsinore on Tuesday.
This was Pomeranz's first rehab outing of the campaign and just his sixth time appearing in a game at any level since 2021. The veteran reliever is attempting to work his way back to the majors after flexor tendon surgery and a subsequent setback kept him away from the Padres for all of 2022. The length of Pomeranz's rehab assignment isn't yet clear, but manager Bob Melvin has suggested that it could be on the short side, per MLB.com.... See More ... See Less

The southpaw is working his way back from flexor tendon surgery in August 2021, but his rehab was delayed by a neck strain suffered last week. Pomeranz reported back to San Diego to receive treatment on his neck, and he has a chance to pitch in the Cal League for the Storm by the end of the week.... See More ... See Less

Pomeranz (elbow) was diagnosed Thursday with a neck strain, delaying his minor-league rehab assignment, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Pomeranz was supposed to begin pitching for Triple-A El Paso on Thursday, but he's run into another setback in his return from August 2021 flexor tendon surgery. At least it's not related to his forearm or elbow. The estimated timetable for his 2023 debut will probably have to be pushed back at least a week or two.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Set for rehab outing
Pomeranz (elbow) will make a minor-league rehab appearance with Triple-A El Paso on Thursday, Sammy Levitt of 97.3 The Fan reports.
Pomeranz was thought to be close to pitching in games in mid-March, but he suffered a setback after tossing a few sim games and was eventually placed on the injured list to begin the season. He appears to be back on the road to recovery from the August 2021 flexor tendon surgery that wiped out all of his 2022 campaign, but he'll likely need at least a few rehab appearances before joining San Diego's bullpen. Pomeranz last appeared in a major-league contest Aug. 10, 2021.... See More ... See Less

Pomeranz (elbow) threw a bullpen session Saturday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Pomeranz is expected to start the season on the injured list due to inflammation in his pitching elbow, but his ability to toss a bullpen Saturday suggests that the issue is minor.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Expected to open season on IL
Padres manager Bob Melvin told reporters that Pomeranz (elbow) has suffered a mild setback that will keep him from making the Opening Day roster, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Pomeranz has had his progression slowed by inflammation in his left elbow, and he's now a lock to begin the season on the injured list. The southpaw has battled injuries over the last few seasons, including missing all of the 2022 campaign while recovering from flexor tendon surgery. When Pomeranz does return, he's expected to serve as a middle-innings option and a bridge to stopper Josh Hader.... See More ... See Less

Pomeranz is tentatively on track to be ready to go for Opening Day.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Sim game coming Thursday
Pomeranz (elbow) will throw another simulated game Thursday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Assuming the sim game goes well, Pomeranz should be cleared to make his Cactus League debut next week. The veteran southpaw missed all of 2022 following a setback in his recovery from 2021 flexor tendon surgery, but he's getting back on track. The Padres seem hopeful that he'll be able to join their bullpen at the start of the season rather than go on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Could see game action soon
Padres manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that Pomeranz (elbow) will throw to live hitters at least one more time before potentially getting into a spring-training game, Sammy Levitt of 97.3 The Fan reports.
Pomeranz threw to live hitters Friday for the first time this spring, and Melvin was encouraged by the session, saying, "What I saw yesterday was great. He was averaging almost 92 [mph]. His breaking ball was spinning well. I know he felt good about it as well," per Bill Center of FriarWire. The manager added that Pomeranz will throw in a similar setting at least once more before potentially getting into a game situation. That lines up with earlier reports that the veteran reliever could open the season in the Padres' bullpen rather than on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Throws to live hitters
Pomeranz (elbow) threw live batting practice Friday, per 97.3 The Fan.
Pomeranz has been taking things slowly this spring after missing all of last season while recovering from flexor tendon surgery to his left arm. However, the southpaw tossed a number of bullpen sessions leading up to throwing to live hitters for the first time Friday, and he's aiming to begin pitching in games within the next few weeks. If his recovery remains on that timeline, Pomeranz could avoid a stint on the injured list to begin the season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Could be ready by Opening Day
Pomeranz (elbow) has tossed eight bullpen sessions this spring and is aiming to be ready to pitch in games by late March, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Pomeranz didn't pitch at all in the majors last season, hurling just 4.2 minor-league innings before being shut down while attempting to rehab from flexor tendon surgery. The Padres have him on a gradual progression with his recent injury history in mind, but he still has a chance to see some spring action and be available out of the bullpen on Opening Day. Despite Pomeranz's struggles to stay healthy, he could be a major part of San Diego's bullpen if he avoids arm trouble this season. He was very effective in 2021, posting a 1.75 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 30:10 K:BB over 25.2 innings while recording 13 holds in 27 appearances.... See More ... See Less
