Former MLB left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz re-signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers to a minor league contract on April 20, according to his Major League Baseball profile.

The Dodgers released Pomeranz on April 19 after he opted out of his minor league contract.

He was an All-Star in 2016 and a World Series champion with Boston in 2018.

Pomeranz has appeared in five games out of the bullpen with Triple-A Oklahoma City in 2024 and has thrown five innings, posting a 1-0 record with a 10.80 ERA, allowing seven hits, six earned runs, one home run, one walk, and seven strikeouts before being released on April 19.

Pomeranz was with the Los Angeles Angels during spring training and appeared in nine games out of the bullpen, throwing eight innings, posting a 5.63 ERA, allowing eight hits, five earned runs, three walks, and six strikeouts before signing with the Dodgers.

The Angels released him on March 24 before joining the Dodgers.

Pomeranz signed with the Angels to a minor league contract on February 14 after he elected free agency from the Padres on November 2, 2023.

Last season, Pomeranz played between Low-A Lake Elsinore and Triple-A El Paso. He appeared in three games and started in two with Low-A Lake Elsinore, throwing three innings and striking out four.

He landed on the injured list twice in 2023 with a left elbow flexor strain back on March 30, 2023, from the 15-day injured list and fell on the 60-day injured list on May 15, 2023, with the same injury.

During the 2022 regular season, Pomeranz landed on the 60-day injured list on March 28, 2022, and had left forearm surgery. He played between the Arizona Complex Level league, Low-A Lake Elsinore, and Triple-A El Paso in 2022.

Pomeranz posted a 7.71 ERA between all three levels in five appearances and two starts, throwing 4.2 innings and allowing four hits, four earned runs, one home run, three walks, and six strikeouts.
