Drew Pomeranz could be key trade chip

With James Shields already gone and the San Diego Padres continuing to fall farther back in the National League West standings, many are waiting for the next shoe to drop. And it’s quite possible that the next piece of the roster to go is starter Drew Pomeranz, who signed a one-year, $1.35 million deal with the Padres at the beginning of the season. The Tennessee native was drafted...

San Diego Padres: Drew Pomeranz is an ace (almost)

The San Diego Padres have a reputation for rostering quality arms. Jake Peavy, he of the 16-strikeout gems, won a Cy Young in 2007.  Chris Young, the towering Princetonian, always seemed to be a couple of outs away from a no-hitter.  Tyson Ross has used a knock-out slider to become one of the most underrated arms in the league (albeit an arm that is currently still on the mend...
