Padres reportedly sign Drew Pomeranz
Ken Rosenthal reports that the San Diego Padres have signed free agent lefty Drew Pomeranz. There is no word yet on the terms of the deal. [Update, Bill Baer: It’s expected to be for four years at $34 million, per Robert Murray.]
Pomeranz struggled in the Giants rotation last season but he was outstanding down the stretch out of the pen after being traded to Milwaukee, posting a 2.39 ERA and 45/8 K/BB ratio across 26.1 innings. He’ll likely continue as a lefty bullpen arm for the Padres -- again, that 5.68 ERA with the Giants was pretty ugly -- though he could also be a rotation option in a pinch.
