Infographic: What do the Red Sox have in Drew Pomeranz?

General managers looking to acquire a difference-making starting pitcher at the trade deadline are all too familiar with one of the game’s cruelest truths: Starters are both a precious commodity, and also wildly volatile. Elite arms can command $20+ million-a-year salaries or multiple top prospects in a deal, but they’re also one troublesome MRI away […] The post Infographic...

Drew Pomeranz learned of trade to Red Sox on TV

If the San Diego Padres continue to sell off their major league talent as we approach the Aug. 1 trade deadline, starting pitcher Andrew Cashner could be the next to go. The right-hander is not concerned about it, however, because he doesn’t expect the team to keep him in the loop anyway. After he threw 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday night...

Of Prospects and Pomeranz

Drew Pomeranz is starting for the Red Sox tonight. It still sounds a bit surreal to say. The oft-traded pitcher, coming off an impressive first half, is now in Boston, making his first start in that iconic red-and-white home uniform as part of the Red Sox’s rotation. Dave Dombrowski finally did it, adding a starter to the much-maligned rotation at the cost of one Anderson Espinoza...

Did the Red Sox Really Overpay for Drew Pomeranz?

Last week, when the Red Sox jumped the starting pitching market — surrendering Anderson Espinoza, their best pitching prospect in the deal — to acquire Drew Pomeranz from San Diego, the general consensus was that the team overpaid, like they did in acquiring Craig Kimbrel some months earlier, as the team tries to take advantage of David Ortiz‘s last year in baseball. After...

Drew Pomeranz trade sets a seller’s market

One of the biggest names on the market was traded on Thursday. The Boston Red Sox acquired Drew Pomeranz from the San Diego Padres. To get him, they traded Anderson Espinoza, one of the best pitching prospects in baseball. This trade will only have a direct impact on the Red Sox and Padres. In a more indirect way, it can potentially have a rather serious impact throughout Major...

Drew Pomeranz Trade: Red Sox Paid Steep Price, But Farm System Should Be OK

If you didn’t know the Boston Red Sox needed to upgrade their starting rotation, you clearly haven’t been paying attention this season. The Red Sox slugged their way to a fine first half, entering the All-Star break 11 games over .500 and just two games behind the Baltimore Orioles in the American League East. The Red Sox begin the second half Friday night tied for the wild card...

Drew Pomeranz has had success against AL East

The Boston Red Sox made a major move to acquire an All-Star pitcher Thursday, but as is the case with nearly every trade, it comes with both pros and cons. Left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz, whom the Red Sox acquired from the San Diego Padres in exchange for pitching prospect Anderson Espinoza, comes to Boston toting the fourth-lowest ERA (2.47) of any starter in Major League Baseball...

Red Sox Pay Up for Drew Pomeranz’s Breakout and Risk

The All-Star break is often just that — a much-needed break, for players and executives alike. You might’ve heard this before, but the regular season is something of a grind. Yet the break also comes just in advance of the trade deadline, so one can never get too comfortable. And as trades go, today there’s been a big one: Drew Pomeranz is going from the Padres to the Red Sox...

Drew Pomeranz, Now With 50% More Pitches

I think we all love the idea of a hitter being taught by Barry Bonds, or a pitcher being taught by Pedro Martinez. It’s because we can’t help but imagine those icons might in some way be able to convey their baseballing essence. In reality, it doesn’t work like that. Pedro wasn’t Pedro because of some career lesson; he was Pedro because he simply threw his pitches better...
