San Francisco signed Pomerantz.

The official major league website said on May 25 (Korea time) that the San Francisco Giants signed veteran left-hander Drew Pomerantz.

The San Francisco Giants signed a Major League contract with the Pomerantz on the day and joined the big league roster. The Giants sent right-hander Mason Black to Triple-A using a minor league option and secured the spot by DFA (Designed for Association).

He is returning to San Francisco for the first time in five years. Pomerantz, who had been to San Francisco for a while in 2019, is back in the Bay Area after five years.

Left-hander Pomerantz, born in 1988, was drafted by the Cleveland Indians (currently the Guardians) with the fifth overall pick in the first round of the 2010 rookie draft and made his debut with the Colorado Rockies in 2011. In the summer of 2011, he traded to Colorado in a trade with Uvaldo Jimenez and made the big league debut that year.

Pomerantz, who was a rising star enough to receive the fifth overall pick, but was injured frequently from the beginning of his career, continued his big league career as a journeyman who could not settle in a team for long.

He went to the Oakland Athletics in a trade for Brett Anderson before the 2014 season and to the San Diego Padres in a trade for Yonder Alonso after the 2015 season. In the summer of 2016, he was traded to the Boston Red Sox and joined San Francisco as a free agent prior to the 2019 season. Pomerantz, who was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers during the 2019 season, rejoined San Diego as a free agent prior to the 2020 season.

Pomerantz, who had been a member of the San Diego Padres until last season, signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Angels prior to this season, and after spring training with the Angels, he left the team for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He played eight games for Triple-A teams under the Dodgers and was recently released.

The last time Pomerantz took a big league mound was in 2021. He did not take the big league mound after undergoing left arm flexor tendon surgery in the 2021 season. His overall performance in the 11 big league seasons was 289 (140GS) 858.1 innings, 48-58 48 holds 9 saves, and an ERA of 3.91. Pomerantz, who has fully settled in the bullpen since the shortened season, was solid in 47 games with 44.1 innings, 2 wins and 22 holds 4 saves, and an ERA of 1.62 in the 2020-2021 season. However, he continued to be sluggish in the minor league after injury, and this year he only pitched nine innings in eight games and a 6.00 ERA in Triple-A under Dodgers. 스포츠토토

San Francisco Giants recruited Pomerantz to reinforce its lack of left-handers. Pomerantz will join Taylor Rogers and Eric Miller in the left-hander bullpen session.
