Former Dodgers Pitcher DFA’d By Rival Giants Days After Signing With Them

Drew Pomeranz had a brief stay in San Francisco.

Pomeranz, who opened the 2024 season with the Dodgers’ organization, was released on Friday and immediately signed with the National League West rival Giants. Pomeranz was added to the active roster, but didn’t appear in a game over the weekend. Then, on Tuesday, he was designated for assignment.

Pomeranz ended up spending just four days with the Giants, and will now head back to waivers to find his next home.

Pomeranz hasn’t pitched in MLB since 2021 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon. He missed all of 2022 and 2023 — his last two years of a four-year, $34 million deal with the Padres — and signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers ahead of the season.

In eight appearances at Triple-A Oklahoma City, Pomeranz allowed six earned runs across nine innings of work.

The left-hander is a one-time All-Star and one-time World Series champion. He has a career 3.91 ERA in 289 games with the Colorado Rockies, Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants, and Milwaukee Brewers.
