Alas, The Vaunted Drew Pomeranz Era Has Ended With The Boston Red Sox

Multiple reports indicate that former Red Sox left-handed starter Drew Pomeranz has signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the San Francisco Giants. After a stellar 2017 season (17-6, 3.32 ERA), Pomeranz signed a one-year, $8.5 million deal with Boston. Injuries and ineffectiveness bumped him from the 2018 rotation and relegated him to the bullpen. However, Pomeranz was not on the post-season roster that captured the World Series Championship for Boston. In his three seasons wearing Carmine Hose, Pomeranz posted a 22-17 record, with a 4.24 ERA. In his overall eight-year MLB career (also with Colorado, Oakland and San Diego), he is 44-48 with a 3.92 ERA. Clearly, the Giants are hoping that a return to health with allow the lefty to regain the prominence he displayed in the 2017 season for the Red Sox. We wish Drew the best.
