SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Left-hander Drew Pomeranz has agreed to a one-year contract with the San Francisco Giants.
Pomeranz, an Ole Miss product, is very familiar with the NL West, having pitched for Colorado and San Diego. He also spent the 2014-15 seasons with Oakland.
Pomeranz pitched the past three years with Boston. He went 2-6 with a 6.08 ERA last season and was limited to 11 starts and 26 appearances for the World Series Champions because of two stints on the DL.
Pomeranz will likely battle Mississippi State and Tupelo High product Chris Stratton, among others, for the fifth spot in the Giants' starting pitching rotation.
