Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Yields first runs of campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz was tagged with a blown save in Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Giants, giving up three runs on two hits and two walks while retiring two batters (both by strikeout).

Pomeranz entered the contest having held opponents scoreless over 18 innings through 19 appearances, but his remarkable run came to an end when Wilmer Flores crushed a three-run homer after Pomeranz allowed a single and a walk with two outs in the sixth inning. Though the blast gave San Francisco a two-run lead, Pomeranz was able to escape without taking the loss when Trent Grisham blasted a three-run walkoff homer in the following frame. Despite the rough outing, Pomeranz still owns a 1.45 ERA and 1.02 WHIP this season.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Notches eighth hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz earned the hold in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against San Francisco, pitching a scoreless inning and allowing one hit while striking out one.

Pomeranz has been exceptional as both a reliever and a setup man this season -- remarkably, he leads San Diego in both holds (eight) and saves (four). The southpaw has yet to allow a run while notching a 0.80 WHIP in 15 innings out of the bullpen.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Picks up win Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning, allowing one hit and striking out one to earn the win Monday versus the Rockies.

Pomeranz kept the game scoreless in the top of the ninth, and he became the winning pitcher with Jurickson Profar's walkoff double in the bottom half of the frame. Through 14 appearances, Pomeranz has four saves, six holds and has yet to allow a run in 13 innings. He's most recently been used as the setup man to trade-deadline acquisition Trevor Rosenthal.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Secures sixth hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz earned the hold in Sunday's win over Oakland, pitching one scoreless inning, allowing one walk and striking out two.

With Trevor Rosenthal now in the fold and performing well for San Diego, Pomeranz may settle back into a full-time role as the team's primary setup man. The left-hander last picked up a save Aug. 11 against the Dodgers, though he spent 10 days on the injured list in late August. Regardless of the inning in which he's pitched, Pomeranz has been dominant in 2020, holding opponents scoreless over 13 appearances (12 innings) while registering a 17:5 K:BB. He has four saves to go along with six holds and has posted a 0.67 WHIP.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Throws scoreless inning in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz gave up one hit in a scoreless inning Saturday against Colorado.

Pomeranz returned to action after a minimum stay on the injured list and looked sharp, needing only 12 pitches (nine strikes) to navigate his way through the frame. He gave up a single to Nolan Arenado leading off the inning but subsequently induced a double-play grounder and another groundout. Pomeranz is likely to return to a setup role with San Diego's acquisition of closer Trevor Rosenthal on Saturday.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Officially activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

Pomeranz was on the injured list for the minimum amount of time after smoothly recovering from a left shoulder strain. While he was the Padres' top option at closer prior to his injury, he could be in line for more of a setup role going forward after the team acquired Trevor Rosenthal on Saturday.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Could be activated Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz is doing well in his recovery from a left shoulder strain and could come off the injured list Saturday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Pomeranz was placed on the 10-day IL retroactive to Aug. 19, so Saturday marks the first day he is eligible to return. The left-hander has progressed to throwing bullpens and appears to be coming along well. "Everything up to today so far has been positive," manager Jayce Tingler indicated. "He's feeling good, and he felt good coming out of his bullpen." Pomeranz is likely to retake the Padres' closer role upon his return.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Takes step in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz (shoulder) played catch Tuesday, Judson Richards of XTRA1360 San Diego reports.

Though the Padres have not provided an update on Pomeranz's status moving forward, manager Jayce Tingler called the activity "a good sign" and indicated that he would follow up with trainers. Pomeranz was placed on the injured list last week, retroactive to Aug. 19. Emilio Pagan has taken over the closer role in his absence.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Placed on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left shoulder strain, retroactive to Aug. 19.

Manager Jayce Tingler revealed Thursday that Pomeranz was day-to-day with shoulder tightness, but the injury is apparently more serious than anticipated. It's unclear whether the southpaw will be able to return from the injured list when he's first eligible. Pomeranz had served as the Padres' primary closer recently, so Emilio Pagan could be in line for ninth-inning duties while Pomeranz is sidelined. Pagan has also been struggling, however, so Jose Castillo could also get some save chances. Right-hander Luis Perdomo was recalled from the team's alternate training site in a corresponding move.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Dealing with shoulder tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz is dealing with shoulder tightness and is considered day-to-day according to manager Jayce Tingler, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

This explains why Pomeranz did not appear in Wednesday or Thursday's close wins over the Rangers. Pomeranz has served as the Friars' primary closer this year and it is unclear when he'll be available to pitch again. Emilio Pagan was called upon to get the save Thursday, but blew the opportunity by allowing a game-tying solo homer to Nick Solak. Nonetheless, Pagan could be the top candidate for save chances if Pomeranz is forced to miss time beyond Thursday.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Enters for seventh inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz earned the hold Tuesday against the Rangers after retiring all four batters he faced with two strikeouts.

The left-hander has been the Friars' de facto closer with Kirby Yates (elbow) potentially done for the season, but he entered for the start of the seventh inning during Tuesday's contest to face the top of the order. Emilio Pagan replaced him after 18 pitches, and Cal Quantrill was called upon for the final out of the game. Pomeranz remains the top option for saves and is perfect in four save chances this season, but manager Jayce Tingler has shown he won't stick to traditional bullpen roles and is willing to use his best arms in the highest-leverage spots, even if it's not the final inning.

August 12, 2020 01:40 AM
Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Notches another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz retired the only batter he faced Tuesday to pick up a save against the Dodgers.

Saves don't come much easier than the one Pomeranz nabbed Tuesday as the right-hander needed only one pitch to induce a flyout and close out the win. He entered with a pair of runners aboard with two outs in the ninth inning, though he had plenty of margin for error as the Padres were ahead by four runs. The save was the second in as many days for Pomeranz, who entered the campaign expected to fill a setup role but has instead tallied four saves on the season, tied for fourth most in baseball.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Earns save against Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poweranz earned the save Monday against the Dodgers after tossing a perfect ninth inning.

Pomeranz didn't record a single strikeout in his lone inning of work, but he still recorded the three outs easily -- he got Max Muncy to fly out, Chris Taylor to ground out, and A.J. Pollock to pop out. Pomeranz has been perfect in save opportunities (3-for-3) and is yet to allow a run in eight appearances (7.1 innings) while posting a 10:3 K:BB this season.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Picks up one-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz notched a one-out save against the Rockies on Friday.

Pomeranz came into the game due to Kirby Yates' struggles, and he earned the save when he induced a Chris Owings flyout to center. The left-hander has not given up a run in five appearances this season, posting a 7:1 K:BB with two saves and two holds. He should remain one of the most important arms in the Padres bullpen this year, and he would be the first in line to take over the closer role if Yates' struggles continue.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Picks up first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz struck out the side in the ninth inning against the Giants on Tuesday to earn his first save of the season.

Pomeranz dealt with a leg issue early on in summer camp, but that seems to be firmly behind him given that he's turned in three scoreless appearances with a 6:1 K:BB already this season. After the game, manager Jayce Tingler insisted that regular closer Kirby Yates is fine, per AJ Cassavell of MLB.com; they simply decided to give Yates an extra day of rest after he labored Sunday. Even if Pomeranz does not end up seeing many more save chances the rest of the way, he's still worth rostering, at least in the majority of leagues with nine active pitching slots.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Won't miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz (leg) will continue to pitch as scheduled, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Pomeranz was pulled from Sunday's intrasquad game with a leg issue, but the move was made due to an abundance of caution and the 31-year-old is slated to stick to his normal throwing routine. Pomeranz figures to be a key piece of San Diego's bullpen this season after posting a 1.88 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 47.2 percent strikeout rate in 28.2 innings as a reliever last season.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Pulled from intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz was removed from Sunday's intrasquad game due to a leg issue, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Pomeranz was in his second inning of work when he apparently made an awkward landing after a pitch. Per Acee, the 31-year-old wanted to continue but was pulled "in an abundance of caution." Pomeranz reportedly walked off the field without apparent discomfort, so there is reason to be optimistic that he is not dealing with a serious injury.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Could be stretched out in time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz is expected to start the season pitching short outings, but the Padres are not ruling out asking him to eventually pitch multiple innings, Bill Center of FriarWire reports.

Pomeranz made a successful transition to the bullpen last year, holding opposing hitters to a .165 average and racking up 50 strikeouts in 28.2 innings. Manager Jayce Tingler cited the southpaw's experience as a starter in considering Pomeranz for an eventual multiple-inning role, though it remains to be seen how the season will play out. As it stands, the Padres look to have one of baseball's strongest bullpens with Pomeranz joined by All-Star closer Kirby Yates and offseason addition Emilio Pagan.

Padres' Drew Pomeranz: Signs with San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz has agreed to a deal with the Padres, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

The deal, which is pending a physical, will be for four years and $34 million, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports. Pomeranz was utterly dominant after moving to the bullpen last year, logging a 1.88 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 39.6 K-BB% in 28.2 innings. He should operate as the Padres' top setup man and has proven capable of getting more than three outs when needed.

Brewers' Drew Pomeranz: Another clean frame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
