Drew Pomeranz Placed on 10-Day Disabled List

Boston Red Sox pitcher Drew Pomeranz was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Thursday with a left forearm flexor strain, meaning he won't be ready for the start of the season.

The Red Sox are scheduled to kick off their season on Monday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Pomeranz - who was acquired in a trade from the San Diego Padres last season - was considered a candidate for the starting rotation heading into spring training. If his injury improves, he could still start on April 9 when the team first has a need for a fifth starter.
