In an interview published in The Boston Herald, Red Sox principal owner John Henry confirmed an MLB investigation into the deal that brought Drew Pomeranz to Boston. The exact interview exchange went like this: "Q. Are you satisfied that the Red Sox received all the medical records/info that the Padres had available concerning Drew Pomeranz? Are the current protocols sufficient for all teams when it comes to access and sharing medical info for trades?" A (Henry). "This is being investigated by MLB so it would be inappropriate for me to comment." The trade for Pomeranz sent top pitching prospect Anderson Espinoza to San Diego—so one can understand the desire to get some form of compensation if deception was involved.
