Drew Pomeranz on disabled list with fractured hand after punching wooden chair

drew-pomeranzAfter putting together back-to-back strong performances to start the month, the string of good outings my Oakland A’s pitcher Drew Pomeranz came to an abrupt end on Monday.

The Texas Rangers roughed up Pomeranz for eight hits and seven earned runs in only 3.2 innings, his shortest start of the season.

Not surprisingly, the 25-year-old was frustrated with his brief appearance. Unfortunately, the way in which Pomeranz chose to act on that frustration will now cost him time on the disabled list.

On the way back to the clubhouse Pomeranz let out some anger on a wooden chair and fractured his right hand.

There’s no timetable yet for a return and if there is a silver lining it’s that the injury is to Pomeranz’s non-throwing hand. As for manager Bob Melvin mentioning his pitcher needs to realize there are ramifications, I think Pomeranz fully understands that now.
