Drew Pomeranz's Journey To The Red Sox Was Well Worth The Wait
Huffington Post - 7 months
Drew Pomeranz did the unthinkable in 2016. Despite being traded for the third time in six years and despite battling an onslaught of shoulder problems, the 27-year-old pitcher earned the first All-Star appearance of his career. Better yet, the Midsummer Classic took place in San Diego, where he’d been starring for the lowly Padres, accumulating the third-best ERA in baseball (2.47) while ranking first in opponents’ batting average (.184) for all National League pitchers. Yet less than 48 hours after the All-Star Game ― in which Pomeranz pitched a scoreless inning in relief ― he found out he’d been traded to the Boston Red Sox. He wasn’t necessarily surprised, however.

He finished his inaugural season at 3-5 with a 2.73 ERA over 10 starts in which he pitched 59.1 innings and recorded 70 strikeouts and surrendered 26 walks and 42 hits. Harvey is a power pitcher with a 6 foot 4 inch (1.93 m) 225 pound frame that is suitable for heavy workloads and can generate great arm speed. He has a 4 pitch repertoire that include a fastball, slider, curve, and change-up. His fastball, varies from a four-seam to a two-seam and is consistently in the range of 92 to 97 mph and has movement, it is considered a plus pitch.

His slider gets good rotation and tilt when thrown well, but it will occasionally flatten out. Harvey's curveball in high school was a overhand power curve that had plus potential. Yet, he doesn't throw it frequently because he favors the slider. Harvey's fourth option is the change-up, of which he has good command and is in the range of 80 to 85 mph.
