Drew Pomeranz suffers another injury | Boston Herald

“The first inning, my triceps got a little tight toward the end,” he said. “I told the trainers in between that inning, went back out and it stayed tight the whole time. Nothing crazy. Just a little triceps tightness. I think my workloads have been a little higher this week. Who knows. I threw that second inning and it didn’t really loosen up. We just decided to call it quits. I could’ve thrown one more but it’s still the second start and we’ll give it a little rest.”

Luckily, the Stephen Wright news has been positive.

I had a few friwnds up here in New England respond to this news by saying that, since Espinoza is unlikely to pan out (simply because of the odds of young pitchers panning out, in general), then this trade will not likely come back to bite us...no matter how frustrating these frequent injuries are.

However:
1) Espinoza is all of 20 years old - he could obviously still "pan out", and he is still one of the highest-rated prospects in baseball.
2) Even if he doesn't pan out, Espinoza was a very valuable trading asset. It is likely that if we had not traded him away, the White Sox would have gladly accepted him instead of Kopech in the Sale trade, for example.

The Red Sox roster has a chance of being the best in baseball...but what it has in height, it lacks in depth.
