Drew Pomeranz P SF 16 minutes ago
The Giants activated Pomeranz (lat) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Diamondbacks.
Pomeranz was sidelined for just under two weeks with the left lat strain and didn't require a minor-league rehab assignment before being reinstated to the active roster. It's not expected that Pomeranz will face a strict pitch-count cap in his first start back from the IL, but the southpaw hadn't worked more than six innings in any of his seven starts prior to being shut down.

Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed Pomeranz (lat) will come off the injured list to start Sunday's series finale at Arizona, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Pomeranz has been on the IL with the left lat strain for just over the 10-day minimum and did not require a minor-league rehab assignment. The 30-year-old was lit up for seven runs -- including three homers -- over 1.2 innings during his last start before landing on the IL.

Pomeranz (lat) is expected to return from the injured list to start Sunday against Arizona, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Pomeranz will wind up missing just two days more than the minimum with his strained left lat. He had a solid 3.65 ERA in his first five starts of the season, but poor showings in his last two starts sent that figure up to 5.93.

Pomeranz (lat) completed a four-inning, 60-pitch live bullpen session Tuesday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Pomeranz also apparently passed all the tests necessary to come off the injured list after suffering the left lat strain last week. The 30-year-old appears to be near a return but it's unclear whether the Giants plan to send him on a brief minor-league rehab assignment.

Manager Bruce Bochy said Pomeranz (lat) could miss just one turn through the rotation, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Pomeranz landed on the injured list Thursday with a left lat strain, but the injury doesn't appear to be anything that will keep him sidelined for an extended period. The southpaw is eligible to return May 17, should he prove ready. With a pair of upcoming off days, the Giants figure to proceed with four starters until May 21, at which point Pomeranz might be ready to rejoin the rotation.

The Giants placed Pomeranz on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left lat strain.
Pomeranz likely picked up the injury during his start Monday in Cincinnati, where he was torched for a season-high seven runs on nine hits and one walk over 1.2 innings. The Giants have enough off days in their schedule coming up to get by with a four-man rotation until Pomeranz is eligible to return May 17, but it's uncertain if the lefty will be ready to come off the IL in the minimum amount of time. Tyler Beede was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding move and will be available in long relief for the time being, though he would be the top candidate to join the rotation if Pomeranz's absence extends beyond 10 days.

Pomeranz (1-4) allowed seven runs on nine hits with two strikeouts and one walk across 1.2 innings during a loss to the Reds on Monday.
This was Pomeranz's shortest outing of the year, but early exits in starts have been common for him. In four of his seven starts, he failed to get through five innings. Walks and home runs have both been problems for Pomeranz this year, and while he only walked one batter in 15 at-bats Monday, he did give up three home runs. Pomeranz has posted a 3.9 BB/9 and 2.4 HR/9 this year. He is also 1-4 with a 5.93 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in 30.1 innings. Pomeranz will receive another crack at the Reds in his next start at home Saturday.

Pomeranz (1-3) took the loss Tuesday, giving up three runs on three hits and two walks over four innings while striking out three as the Giants fell 10-3 to the Dodgers.
The southpaw was nursing a 1-0 lead through three innings, but David Freese's three-run shot in the fourth turned the game around and effectively ended Pomeranz's night. He'll carry a 4.08 ERA and 31:12 K:BB through 28.2 innings into his next start Monday, on the road against the Reds.

Pomeranz (1-2) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out five across six shutout innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Pomeranz didn't allow a baserunner until the fifth inning when he surrendered a walk and single to consecutive batters. However, he escaped the jam before repeating the same pattern again in the sixth inning. While he didn't rack up strikeouts at the same volume he had in previous outings, Pomeranz illustrated the ability to work efficiently by requiring only 87 pitchers to retire 18 batters. It was his longest outing of the season, and he'll look to build on that in his next start, likely to come Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Pomeranz (0-2) allowed four earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out seven across 4.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Nationals.
Pomeranz struggled to work efficiently during his Thursday afternoon outing, allowing runs and multiple baserunners in four of his five innings. He did still rack up strikeouts on the strength of 16 called strikes and 11 swinging strikes. Though he now has 23 strikeouts across 18.2 innings for the season, he has also allowed eight walks and failed to complete more than five frames in any of his four outings.
