Pomeranz threw a scoreless eighth inning in Tuesday's victory over the Reds.
Pomeranz has not seen a save opportunity since picking up saves Sept. 10 and 17 when Josh Hader was unavailable, but he has turned in three scoreless appearances. He has kept the opponent off the scoreboard 11 times in 12 appearances this month and has posted a 1.64 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and 21:1 K:BB along the way.
Pomeranz struck out four over two perfect innings Tuesday to record his second save of the season in a 3-1 win over the Padres.
The veteran southpaw did his best Josh Hader impression, firing 18 of 24 pitches for strikes after Milwaukee had claimed the lead in the bottom of the seventh inning. Hader (the genuine article) has seen heavy usage lately, pitching four times in five days to close out last week, but Pomeranz seems to be emerging as Craig Counsell's top alternate high-leverage option given his 2.16 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 16:1 K:BB through 8.1 innings in September.
Pomeranz had two strikeouts and allowed two hits and zero walks in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday in Miami.
Pomeranz recorded the fourth save of his career -- and first since 2015 -- as he managed to hold off the Marlins. Regular closer Josh Hader had the night off after a busy weekend, providing the opportunity for Pomeranz. The 30-year-old has a 3.06 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 27:8 K:BB and seven holds over 17.2 innings since joining the Brewers at the trade deadline.
Pomeranz threw 1.1 scoreless innings in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.
Pomeranz gave up four earned runs over a three-outing stretch from Aug. 7-13, but he has been stellar since, throwing 6.1 scoreless frames over five outings while giving up just two hits and posting a 9:2 K:BB. He has generally worked in middle relief since joining the Brewers, and has accumulated four holds with his new club thus far.
Pomeranz gave up one run on one hit and one walk while striking out three through three innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Wednesday.
Pomeranz wasn't expected to pitch more than a few innings, and he delivered a solid effort despite allowing a solo home run. Since becoming a full-time reliever in late July, Pomeranz has an 0.87 ERA and an 0.58 WHIP. Although he technically was given the start in this bullpen game, Pomeranz is expected to remain in his reliever role.
Pomeranz will start Wednesday's game at Pittsburgh, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Pomeranz has looked good through his first two outings with the Brewers, allowing two hits and zero walks while recording five strikeouts in two scoreless frames. The Brewers will go with a bullpen day in the series finale, so the veteran left-hander figures to throw a couple innings if he pitches well. GM David Stearns said after the team acquired Pomeranz that he viewed him primarily as a reliever, and that doesn't appear to be changing despite Wednesday's "starting" nod.
Pomeranz tossed a scoreless sixth inning out of the bullpen in Monday's victory over the Pirates. He allowed two hits but did strike out three batters.
Pomeranz allowed runners to reach second and third base with two outs, but he was able to escape the jam by punching out his third batter of the inning. He has struck out five batters over two innings since joining the Brewers prior to the trade deadline, and now owns a 13:1 K:BB over 7.1 innings since moving to a relief role in late July while still with the Giants.
GM David Stearns said the Brewers see Pomeranz "primarily as a reliever," Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Stearns' comments leave the door open for Pomeranz to start, which he did for the first three and a half months of the season with the Giants; but it appears he will begin his Brewers stint in the bullpen, where he found success with the Giants the last couple weeks. It would not be surprising if Pomeranz is used in high-leverage spots with the Brewers looking for more options in those situations, but fantasy players should not expect him to be in the mix for saves with his new club.
Pomeranz was traded from the Giants to the Brewers on Wednesday along with Ray Black in exchange for Mauricio Dubon, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The Brewers continue to shore up their pitching, as Pomeranz and Black join Jake Faria, who was acquired from the Rays earlier in the day. The southpaw opened the season in San Francisco's starting rotation but moved to the bullpen after struggling to a 6.10 ERA in 17 appearances. Pomeranz has been lights out since moving to a relief role, firing 5.1 scoreless innings while striking out eight and allowing just one hit and one walk. Per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Brewers plan to use Pomeranz primarily as a reliever.
Pomeranz fired two clean innings while striking out four in Monday's 5-4 win over the Cubs.
Pomeranz did not allow a base runner and played a big role in allowing the Giants to make a late comeback. The 30-year-old was moved to the bullpen in favor of rookie starter Conner Menez (who pitched well Sunday before being sent back to the minors). The club doesn't require a fifth rotation arm until the first week of August, but Pomeranz's struggles as a starter (6.10 ERA) this season may keep him in the bullpen when that time arrives.
Pomeranz will be available out of the bullpen going forward, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Pomeranz had been scheduled to start Sunday against the Mets, but Conner Menez will be called up to take his place in the rotation. The veteran could always reclaim his spot should Menez struggle, but he's had an ERA over six for two straight seasons, so the Giants likely won't try too hard to get him back in the rotation.
Pomeranz did not factor into the decision after throwing five innings of one-run ball Tuesday, giving up three hits and a walk while striking out four in an extra-inning win over the Rockies.
Pomeranz was actually in line for his third win of the season, but closer Will Smith uncharacteristically blew a three-run lead in the ninth. There were rumors that the southpaw and his 6.10 ERA could be moved out of the rotation this past weekend, but the team decided to give him another shot, and it paid off, all things considered. Pomeranz is still at risk of being converted into a reliever, considering the recent promotion of Andrew Suarez and Pomeranz's inability to go past five innings in all but one start this season. If he does get another turn in the rotation, it would come Sunday at home against the Mets, but he wouldn't be more than a strikeout streamer for that matchup.
Pomeranz has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Pomeranz was available out of the bullpen during Sunday's matchup, though he wasn't called upon, leaving him available to make Tuesday's start. However, it is possible that the Giants use Pomeranz as an opener Tuesday, especially considering Andrew Suarez was held back from his scheduled start for Triple-A Sacramento, per Baggarly.
Pomeranz was available out of the bullpen in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Brewers, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Pomeranz had been listed as the Giants' scheduled starter for the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Rockies at Coors Field, but manager Bruce Bochy has since clarified that Jeff Samardzija will take the hill for the afternoon contest while Dereck Rodriguez starts in the nightcap. Since Pomeranz went unused in relief Sunday, he'll be available to start Tuesday's game, but it's unclear if Bochy still views the lefty as a member of the rotation. Pomeranz has been striking out batters at a healthy clip since the beginning of June (11.8 K/9) but has failed to surpass five innings in any of his six starts during that span while supplying a 4.13 ERA and 1.62 WHIP. Even if he rejoins the rotation Tuesday, Pomeranz won't make for a comfortable streaming option in light of his erratic form and the unfavorable pitching environment.
Pomeranz (2-9) took the loss Friday, allowing four runs on six hits and four walks over four innings. He struck out three in a 9-4 loss to the Cardinals.
Pomeranz has struggled to go deep into games lately -- he hasn't pitched more than five innings since April 24 versus the Blue Jays. Pomeranz sports an unsightly 6.42 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in 16 starts this season. His first start after the All-Star break is scheduled for July 15 in the first game of a doubleheader in Colorado.
Pomeranz tossed five scoreless innings while giving up five hits, two walks and striking out seven Saturday, but did not factor into the decision in a 4-3 loss to Arizona.
Pomeranz followed up his 11-strikeout performance with another strong -- albeit short -- outing. The 30-year-old needed 103 pitches (66 for strikes) to complete his five frames. High pitch counts have been a recurring theme for Pomeranz, as he has pitched five or fewer innings in all but one of his 15 starts this season. The veteran southpaw won't do much for owners in leagues that county quality starts, but he has pitched well over his last five contests (3.33 ERA and 12.6 K/9). Pomeranz will look to continue his recent success in a home matchup against the Cardinals on Friday.
Pomeranz (2-8) took the loss against the Rockies on Monday, giving up two earned runs on five hits over five innings, striking out 11 and walking two in the Giants' 2-0 defeat.
Pomeranz bounced back from a seven-run blowup in his last start with a sharp effort, notching his first double-digit strikeout performance of the season, but he was outdueled by Jon Gray and wound up taking his eighth loss of the season. It's been an erratic season for the left-hander, as he's sporting a 6.79 ERA and a 1.75 WHIP through 58.1 innings. He lines up to take on the Diamondbacks in his next start at home on Saturday.
Pomeranz (2-7) lasted just 4.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Dodgers, allowing seven runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out four.
The Dodgers got to Pomeranz right away with a three-run homer from Chris Taylor in the first inning. Overall, Pomeranz surrendered three home runs, including two to Taylor and another to Kyle Garlick while yielding a season-worst tying nine hits. The southpaw has pitched past the fifth inning just once over 13 starts this season. He'll carry a 7.09 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 59:26 K:BB into a tough matchup against the Rockies on Monday.
Pomeranz (2-6) allowed two unearned runs on five hits and three walks over five innings. He earned the win and struck out five in Friday's 5-3 win over the Brewers.
A passed ball in the third inning and an error before Christian Yelich's RBI single in the fifth inning got Pomeranz off the hook for both runs allowed on his watch. The performance lowers the left-hander's ERA to 6.43 with 55 strikeouts over 49 innings this season. Pomeranz will have another tough start when he takes on the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Pomeranz pitched five scoreless innings Friday, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out seven. He took a no-decision in a 2-1 win over the Dodgers.
Pomeranz was working on six days rest Friday, and bounced back after allowing 25 earned runs over his five previous appearances. The veteran lefty still has a 7.16 ERA and 1.75 WHIP through 44 innings this season. His record remains at 1-6 entering his next projected start -- June 16 versus the Brewers.
