A's send LHP Drew Pomeranz to Triple-A SacramentoJuly 13, 2014 @ 12:56 pm
SEATTLE (AP) -- The Oakland Athletics have activated left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz from the 15-day disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.
The moves were made Sunday before Oakland faced the Seattle Mariners.
Pomeranz (5-4, 3.21 ERA) had been on the disabled list since June 17 after breaking his right hand.
Pomeranz has played in 17 games for Oakland this season, the final eight as a starting pitcher. While in the rotation, Pomeranz was 4-3 with a 3.21 ERA before he was injured. He has since lost his starting spot with Oakland's acquisitions of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Chicago Cubs.
Oakland manager Bob Melvin said Pomeranz would remain a starter for now with the possibility of a return to the bullpen in the future.
