Pomeranz Reportedly Traded to Red Sox

Thursday, July 14 

According to Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres have agreed to deal Pomeranz to the Red Sox in a trade that “is believed to include one of the Red Sox’s better prospects.”

Pitching prospect Anderson Espinoza is headed to San Diego as part of the trade, according to Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald.

Marlins Reportedly Exploring Potential Pomeranz Trade

Wednesday, July 13

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported that the Miami Marlins have interest in Pomeranz along with Jake Odorizzi of the Tampa Bay Rays and Rich Hill of the Oakland Athletics.

Rangers Reportedly Interested in Pomeranz

Tuesday, July 12’s Ken Rosenthal reported the buzz surrounding Pomeranz, who has gotten poor run support this year, leading to an 8-7 record despite a 2.47 ERA.

According to’s Samuel Henken, Texas initially drafted Pomeranz out of high school all the way back in 2007. It would be quite the story if he were to end up in Arlington nearly a decade later.

A dearth of quality starting pitching has held the Rangers back from further greatness in recent years. This season’s club sits atop the American League West thanks in large part to an improvement in that area.

Adding a younger arm like Pomeranz to a staff that’s tied for seventh with 49 quality starts in 2016 will only aid Texas’ cause to claim the division crown.

Pomeranz’s Strong Pitch Selection Enticing to Potential Suitors

The 27-year-old was recently selected as an All-Star for the first time and tossed a one-hit fourth inning on Tuesday night for the National League squad.

When Pomeranz was asked what the highlight of the All-Star Game was, he said, per the Padres’ official Twitter account, “Besides playing here in our home park, it’s being around all these guys.”

He seemed to be at home in San Diego, yet since the Padres are among the worst teams in the National League, they need to be thinking about rebuilding the roster. 

Although he doesn’t have elite velocity, Pomeranz relies a lot on his fastball, which hovers in the low 90s rather consistently, per Brooks Baseball. Pomeranz also throws an effective cutter and sinker, but his curve is what really baffles batters.

Such a diverse pitching arsenal keeps hitters off balance, as he’s yielded only a .184 opponents’ batting average and logged 115 strikeouts in only 102 innings of work this season.
