SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco Giants signed former Red Sox free agent left-hander Drew Pomeranz to a one-year contract, ending his oft-injured stint with the defending World Champs.
The team did not disclose financial details, but The Athletic reported the deal was worth $1.5 million with a max value of $5 million with incentives.
Pomeranz, 30, was a National League All-Star in 2016 with the San Diego Padres and a 17-game winner with the Boston Red Sox in 2017.
He was 2-6 with a 6.08 ERA in 26 games (11 starts) for the Red Sox last season. He spent two stints on the 10-day disabled list with a left forearm flexor strain and with left biceps tendinitis. In eight seasons with the Colorado Rockies (2011-13), Oakland Athletics (2014-15), Padres (2016) and Red Sox (2016-18), he has compiled a 44-48 record with a 3.92 ERA and 687 strikeouts in 710 innings.
