Los Angeles Dodgers Sign Former All-Star Pitcher

The Los Angeles Dodgers have bolstered their pitching depth with the signing of Drew Pomeranz, a seasoned left-handed pitcher and former All-Star.

Pomeranz, aged 35, joins the Dodgers on a minor league deal following his release from the Los Angeles Angels during spring training.

Despite enduring injury setbacks in recent years, Pomeranz's proven track record and versatility make him an enticing addition to the Dodgers' pitching arsenal.

Pomeranz has not pitched in the MLB since the 2021 season where he recorded a 1.75 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, with 30 strikeouts across 25.2 innings and 27 appearances.

Pomeranz's career journey has been marked by highs and lows, including standout performances with teams like the San Diego Padres, where he showcased dominant form before injuries interrupted his trajectory.

With a hiatus from the MLB due to surgeries and rehabilitation, Pomeranz now sees the Dodgers as a beacon for his comeback aspirations. His ability to excel both as a starter and a reliever adds valuable depth to the Dodgers' roster, aligning with their penchant for strategic signings and player development.

Over his last two seasons in the MLB, from 2019-20, he holds a fantastic 1.62 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, with 59 strikeouts across 44.1 innings and 47 appearances.

Pomeranz represents a calculated investment for the Dodgers, who seek to leverage his experience and talent in their quest for championship contention.

Over his 11-year career, Pomeranz holds a 3.91 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, with 883 strikeouts over 858.1 innings and 289 appearances. Photo Credit: Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports
