Drew Pomeranz has been lights out for the Boston Red Sox. Although he’s had a very good season throughout, he’s turned it up a notch as of late. Of course, Chris Sale is the ace of the staff and early Cy Young front runner, but Pomeranz is nobody to sleep on.
Pomeranz Since The All-Star Break
Drew Pomeranz is undefeated since the all-star break. As a matter of fact, he hasn’t taken a loss since June 11th, almost 2 months ago. His ERA during that span is a 2.24. That’s over a full run lower than his season ERA of 3.36. He’s given up 1.7 runs per game pitched in that span and only allowed 4 home runs in his last 10 games pitched. That spans over 60 innings! His pure dominance has surely been exemplified.
Division Rival Dominance
When facing division rivals, Pomeranz continues to excel. He has a 6-2 record when facing any of his division foes, and the Sox are 8-2 as a team when Drew starts such games. Most importantly, Boston is 4-1 in games started by Pomeranz against the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays. This is extremely important because those are the 2 biggest threats to the Sox in the division. If he can continue this success in high leverage games, the Sox have found a gem in Drew.
Pomeranz has 11 wins to date, which is tied for a career high. He has almost 2 months to bring that total up, which surely will blow his career high out of the water. While eating up a ton of innings, his stuff looks to only be getting better. Having other star lefties in Chris Sale and David Price to learn from, Drew should only continue to improve and become an important factor in a potentially long playoff run for the Boston Red Sox.
