San Diego Padres pitcher Drew Pomeranz could make a surprise return in September
Remember old friend Drew Pomeranz? If you don't, we can't exactly blame you. He hasn't pitched since 2021, after all.
You may recall that back in May, we wrote an article detailing the latest setback in Pomeranz' recovery. Well as it turns out, the southpaw could indeed be "pitching meaningful innings" next month if his rehab continues to track as expected.
Of course, this is far from guaranteed to occur, though it's important to note that Pomeranz has resumed his throwing program as of late July, per the San Diego Union-Tribune and says he's determined to do everything in his power to get back out there for the Padres.
When healthy, and that's a major condition, Pomeranz can be a lethal lefty weapon out of the bullpen who remains under contract for San Diego. The Padres may decide to ease the veteran back into game action should he return to the big leagues in September, but nonetheless, a comeback this season would represent an ultimate triumph for Pomeranz.
