Padres | Drew Pomeranz avoids arbitration

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 09:04:15 -0800

San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz avoided arbitration Thursday, Jan. 14, by agreeing to a one-year, $1.35 million deal.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if the Friars will use Pomeranz as a starter or reliever in 2016. He was much more effective in a relief role for the Oakland Athletics, and the Padres back end of the bullpen is wide open. Stay tuned, but Pomeranz could be in line to be a great sleeper target in later rounds of drafts.

Padres | Friars trade for Drew Pomeranz

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 09:11:40 -0800

The San Diego Padres acquired SP Drew Pomeranz and P Jose Torres from the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Dec. 2, in exchange for 1B Yonder Alonso and RP Marc Rzepczynski.

Fantasy Tip: Pomeranz had a 3.66 ERA and 1.19 WHIP while striking out 8.6 hitters per nine innings in 86 frames last year (nine starts). He profiles as either a starter or a reliever with plenty of upside left, especially because he'll stay in an extreme pitcher's park. There's a chance he could compete for San Diego's closer role with Kevin Quackenbush, too, leaving open plenty of fantasy possibilities. Either way, it seems Pomeranz could have some sneaky fantasy value in 2016.

Athletics | Yonder Alonso traded to A's

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 09:08:48 -0800

The Oakland Athletics acquired 1B Yonder Alonso and RP Marc Rzepczynski from the San Diego Padres Wednesday, Dec. 2, in exchange for SP Drew Pomeranz and P Jose Torres.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso hit a respectable .282 (100-for-354) with five home runs and 31 RBI in 103 games for the Padres in 2015. He's never had double-digit home runs in the majors and shouldn't be expected to reach that mark with a move to another extreme pitcher's park. You also can't expect him to duplicate another high average in 2016. He's strictly corner infield depth in much deeper leagues.

Athletics | Drew Pomeranz undergoes surgery

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 14:55:15 -0700

Oakland Athletics P Drew Pomeranz (clavicle) underwent clavicle surgery Thursday, Oct. 22, and he is expected to be ready for spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Pomeranz flamed out as a starter in 2015, but you'll want to keep a close eye on his expected role next spring before drafting him outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. He could slide into save situations or the back end of the starting rotation. He isn't a worth a roster spot in the majority of keeper/dynasty leagues.

Athletics | Drew Pomeranz to have surgery

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 07:55:54 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) will have arthroscopic surgery on his left AC joint in his shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Pomeranz could be in competition for a rotation spot in spring training and still has enough upside to be a worthwhile flyer near the end of drafts.

Athletics | Drew Pomeranz records save

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 18:22:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Drew Pomeranz earned his second save of the season against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, Aug. 19. He tossed one scoreless inning of work.

Fantasy Tip: Pomeranz may be worth a speculative add for owners in AL-only seasonal leagues searching for saves, although Edward Mujica is expected to receive most of the save opportunities for the A's.

Athletics | Aaron Brooks to start Saturday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:18:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks will start Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Cleveland Indians. P Drew Pomeranz will remain in the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Brooks was a key piece of the Ben Zobrist trade from Tuesday. He had appeared in just two games and pitched 4 1/3 innings this season for the Kansas City Royals. Brooks should be allowed to make a couple of starts before FantasyScore owners take the chance.

Athletics | Tyler Clippard likely on the move

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 05:23:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard is likely the next A's player to be traded before the deadline. RP Drew Pomeranz is a candidate to become the closer if Clippard is dealt.

Fantasy Tip: Pick up Pomeranz in anticipation of Clippard's deal. Clippard may lose most of his fantasy value because he'll probably land on a team as a setup man.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt unhappy with trade

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 16:56:11 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt voiced his displeasure at the trading of SP Scott Kazmir (Astros) prior to the game Thursday, July 23, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Vogt said there was no opportunity for pregame prep work with Thursday's emergency starter SP Drew Pomeranz. "None. It's an ambush. Our whole pitching staff got ambushed," said Vogt.

Fantasy Tip: Pomeranz last 1 2/3 innings, and he gave up two hits, two runs and one walk while striking out four. Pomeranz has looked good at times as a starter this year, but he could've used more time to prepare. He'll be a risky, high-upside option on FantasyScore for as long as he's in the rotation.

Athletics | Drew Pomeranz starting Thursday

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 10:46:28 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Drew Pomeranz will start Thursday, July 23, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Pomeranz is making the start for Scott Kazmir, who was dealt to Houston earlier today. Pomeranz has pitched out of the bullpen of late and probably isn't going to be stretched out enough to go deep into the game. The Blue Jays' offense is also no joke. Avoid him on FantasyScore.
