Pomeranz Pulled From Sunday Start With Bicep Issue

UPDATE: On Monday, Pomeranz reports 'no symptoms'
Stop us if you've hear this before: You can never have enough starting pitching! This maxim took on even greater significance yesterday, when previously-damaged-goods southpaw Drew Pomeranz had to leave Sunday's Spring Training start with tightness is his left bicep. Of course, the crack Red Sox medical staff called the removal "precautionary", but—given the pitcher's history—this is not good. After getting a stem cell injection in his elbow last year, Pomeranz was already behind schedule. Look for Kyle Kendrick to definitely make the team for at least the first month.
