It has been a bumpy campaign for Drew Pomeranz.
After a solid 2017 season, the Boston Red Sox left-hander began the season on the disabled list with a forearm flexor strain, only to make eight starts — many of them underwhelming — before going back on the DL on June 5 with bicep tendonitis.
Things appear to be looking up, however, for the southpaw. As he works his way back to full strength, he pitched a simulated game at Fenway Park on Wednesday afternoon. Afterward, Sox manager Alex Cora indicated that the results of the game were promising, and could lead to a rehab start so long as he feels fine following Wednesday’s outing.
Here are some of the details of the 29-year-old’s performance.
With Steven Wright now on the disabled list, a return from Pomeranz in good form certainly would be an important one for the Red Sox.
In his eight starts this season, Pomeranz is 1-3 with a 6.81 ERA.
