Snuffs out the Dodgers in the ninth for his fourth save. Hasn't been scored on yet.

The Money's take on the wild game in Colorado.

August 1, 2020

San Diego Padres — Kirby Yates is on the hot seat after a wild ninth inning that saw him nearly give back a three-run lead the Padres had been gifted by Wade Davis. Drew Pomeranz stepped in to save the night, and is knocking on the door of the ninth inning, as Yates just looks like a totally different pitcher this season. Alarmingly, he’s given up half of the earned runs he allowed last season, in only 4% of the innings.

Hierarchy remains: Yates | Pomeranz | Pagan.

Thank you, Brew Crew! MLB Trade Rumors predicted on Nov. 5 he would get a fat contract; he more than doubled their expectations.

23.  Drew Pomeranz – Dodgers.  Two years, $16MM.  Most free agent markets have a buzzworthy reliever, and this year it’s Pomeranz.  A former first round pick of the Indians, the southpaw had some solid seasons in relief for the A’s before finding his footing as a starter with the Padres and Red Sox.  Pomeranz posted a 3.32 ERA over 62 starts from 2016-17, but his 2018 season was decimated by a forearm flexor strain and biceps tendinitis.  He hooked on with the Giants for just a $1.5MM guarantee, but failed in a starting role for San Francisco and was shipped to the Brewers at the 2019 deadline.

From August 2nd onward, Pomeranz was an utterly dominant reliever for Milwaukee.  His fastball velocity ticked up to 95-96 miles per hour as Pomeranz struck out nearly half of batters faced, more than Josh Hader during that time.  The eye-opening showing, less than 30 innings in total, could even net Pomeranz a three-year deal.

Signed with Padres for four years, $34MM.
