Drew Pomeranz signs one-year deal with Giants

The San Francisco Giants made an inexpensive move on Wednesday to bolster their starting rotation, signing left-hander Drew Pomeranz to a one-year contract.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports that the deal is worth just $1.5 million.

Coming off a down season in 2018, Pomeranz could end up being one of the better buy-low free agents on the market. While he has battled injuries throughout his career and posted a 2-6 record and 6.08 ERA in 74 innings last year, the 30-year-old was considered a big addition for the Red Sox two years ago and initially lived up to the hype.

In his first full season with Boston in 2017, Pomeranz went 17-6 with a 3.32 ERA. He put together some quality seasons before that with the A’s and Padres and has a respectable career ERA of 3.92. There’s a reason we listed Pomeranz as one of our best potential bargains of MLB free agency, and there’s virtually no risk for the Giants in signing him to a $1.5 million deal. If he stays healthy, there’s no reason Pomeranz can’t have a bounce-back season pitching in the National League.
