Confidence Has Been Key For Red Sox’s Drew Pomeranz Amid Stellar Season

Drew Pomeranz was underwhelming for the Red Sox upon arriving in Boston in mid-July of last year.

The left-hander went 3-5 with a 4.59 in 13 starts in a Red Sox uniform to end the 2016 season. The 2017 campaign, however, has been a completely different tale of the tape for Pomeranz.

Entering Wednesday, the 28-year-old boasts a 12-4 record with a 3.31 ERA and has been Boston’s most consistent starting pitcher outside of Chris Sale. While a lot can be credited for Pomeranz’s impressive turnaround, Red Sox pitching coach Carl Willis believes the biggest reason for the lefty’s success is a regaining of confidence.
