Although Pomeranz performed admirably on the road at Camden Yards, he wasn't given a single run of support, resulting in his first loss of the season. He's now pitched well in two of his three starts, and despite a 4.60 ERA, he should be able to pile up a solid number of wins, as his offense is sure to perform better than they did in this contest. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Yankees.

Pomeranz allowed five runs on five hits while walking two and striking out 10 over 4.1 innings for a no-decision in Boston's 7-5 Sunday win over the Rays.

Three of the five hits Pomeranz allowed went for extra-base hits, including solo home runs off the bat of Corey Dickerson and Tim Beckham. The strikeouts have been great (16 in 10.1 innings over two starts), but a shaky performance in his second start of the year isn't a huge surprise after a forearm injury delayed his start to 2017. If the lefty can remain healthy and near 200 innings for the first time in his career, he should be a very effective middle-of-the-rotation option for both Boston and fantasy owners.

Pomeranz said he wasn't feeling any significantly negative after-effects Wednesday following a victory in his Tuesday season debut, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

The southpaw spun six innings of one-run ball against a tough Orioles squad. Pomeranz did admit he was a bit sore after the outing but said it's nothing to be concerned about regarding his previous forearm issues. It'll be more comforting if his fantasy owners are reading such positive things in the middle of the season, but either way, the southpaw is off to a promising start.

Pomeranz (1-0) tossed six innings of one-run ball en route to a victory Tuesday against the Orioles, allowing four hits and one walk with six strikeouts.

Pomeranz was fresh off the disabled list after recovering from a forearm injury but showed no lingering effects of the ailment in limiting a strong Baltimore offense. He worked efficiently and needed just 91 pitches to make it through six-plus frames, with the only run on his ledger coming on an RBI groundout after he had already exited the game in the seventh. Boston will look to Pomeranz as a solid arm in the middle of the rotation this season and he'll look to build on an impressive debut Sunday against the Rays.

Pomeranz (forearm) was reinstated from the DL on Tuesday, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

As expected, Pomeranz was brought off the disabled list, as he's scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Orioles. Pomeranz finished the 2016 season with a 3.32 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, but struggled after being traded to the Red Sox from the Padres. Over 14 games (68.2 innings) with Boston he put together an ERA and WHIP of 4.59 and 1.37, respectively.

Pomeranz (forearm) will start Tuesday against the Orioles, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

The Red Sox adjusted their rotation for their weekend series against the Tigers due to Thursday's rain out, which allowed them to give Pomeranz some extra time before his season debut. Pomeranz will get the nod at home against an Orioles team that teed him up for five runs over two innings in his lone start against them last season.

Pomeranz (forearm) will not pitch in Boston's upcoming weekend series against Detroit, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Added 04/06/17 11:24 am (EST)
The Red Sox's series finale against the Pirates was postponed Thursday, which allowed manager John Farrell to move Eduardo Rodriguez into the Saturday slot and push Rick Porcello and Chris Sale back by one day. With that, Pomeranz will have to wait until at least Tuesday to make his season debut.

Manager John Farrell said that Pomeranz (forearm) will be cleared to come off the 10-day disabled list to start Sunday's game against the Tigers, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

The Red Sox could be at risk of a rainout for their series finale Thursday against the Pirates, but if the weather holds up, Pomeranz will remain on schedule to take the hill before the weekend draws to a close. Pomeranz was able to throw six innings in a minor-league outing Monday and the Red Sox came away pleased with his performance, so it doesn't sound like he'll face any significant pitch count restrictions in his season debut. Pomeranz should be in store for at least a handful of starts before David Price (elbow) returns from the DL, at which point Farrell would have to drop one of Pomeranz, Steven Wright or Eduardo Rodriguez from the rotation.

Pomeranz (forearm) threw close to 90 pitches over six innings in a minor league game Monday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. "There was an uptick in overall stuff. It was an encouraging day for him," manager John Farrell said.

Added 04/04/17 8:50 am (EST)
The goals of this outing were to build up pitch count and an overall improvement in the quality of his pitches. Pomeranz checked both boxes, according to Farrell, who said they haven't discussed the next step for the left-hander. He's eligible to come off the 10-day disabled list Sunday in Detroit, the first time Boston will need a fifth starter. If they want to hold him back for one more outing, the best fill-in option is Kyle Kendrick.

Pomeranz (forearm) is expected to pitch in a minor-league game Monday, April 3, and Boston remains hopeful he'll debut Sunday, April 9, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Added 03/30/17 11:30 am (EST)
The Red Sox hope his placement on the new 10-day disabled list is merely a way to game the system and not the beginning of an extended absence. Pomeranz will have to make it through that farm contest with few or no issues to convince the club he's ready. The left-hander's fantasy owners should monitor that outing carefully to get some hint of his immediate future.
