Pomeranz was coming off a start in which he left with triceps tightness, and he burned through 97 pitches, leading to his early exit from the contest. He's allowed nine runs over his last 11 innings covering his last three appearances to raise his ERA from 4.00 to 4.97, but overall he's had enough strong starts to make him a reasonable fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Mariners.

Pomeranz, who starts Saturday in Oakland six days after leaving his previous start with triceps tightness, can be pushed to throw 100 pitches, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

There does not appear to be any limitations on Pomeranz following his abbreviated start, but fantasy owners may want to tread carefully with the oft-injured left-hander and his 5.29 ERA this season. In between his starts, Pomeranz altered his mechanics to have a shorter delivery, similar to the one he used last season. Manager John Farrell said he was more free and able to consistently repeat his arm stroke.

Tightness in Pomeranz's triceps forced him out of Sunday's start after just three innings, but it looks like he'll be fine. Expect Pomeranz to make a start against Oakland on Saturday. Pomeranz has made just two quality starts in seven appearances this season, the last coming April 28 against the Cubs.

Pomeranz was removed from his start Sunday against the Rays in the top of the fourth inning with an undisclosed injury, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Pomeranz went through his usual pre-inning warmup routine to begin the fourth, then called the team trainer and manager John Farrell to the mound to meet with him. It was determined that Pomeranz would be pulled from the outing in favor of reliever Ben Taylor with the Red Sox facing a 2-1 deficit after the left-hander gave up two runs on three hits prior to his departure. The Red Sox should provide more clarity on why Pomeranz was removed from the contest after the game.
Chase d'Arnaud Headshot

D'Arnaud pinch-hit for Drew Pomeranz and beat out an infield single in the fifth inning of Tuesday's 11-7 loss to Milwaukee. It was the d'Arnaud's first at-bat since joining the Red Sox on April 28.

Until that point in the night, the Red Sox did very little against Wily Peralta despite the right-hander's inability to throw strikes. D'Arnaud then scored on a double by Mookie Betts, running through the stop sign put up by third base coach Brian Butterfield. The sequence served as a wake-up call for the offense but Boston's comeback was spoiled twice by its bullpen. With third base being the Red Sox's weakest of the field positions, there's an opportunity for d'Arnaud to establish a more regular presence in the lineup, particularly if he creates offense like he did Tuesday. At the very least, he'll be part of the pinch-hitting crew while Boston plays two more games in Milwaukee.

Pomeranz (3-2) was battered for six runs on seven hits and two walks in just four innings against Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Added 05/10/17 1:17 am (EST)
This was a tough draw against a Milwaukee offense that's been terrific, and fantasy owners who put their faith in Pomeranz due to his solid early returns came away sorely disappointed. Long balls have been a major issue for the lefty this year, as he's now given up an awful total of seven in 31 innings, counterbalancing the value he's offered with his 36 strikeouts.
