Report: Padres Trade All-Star Pitcher Drew Pomeranz To Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox have agreed to trade for San Diego Padres pitcher Drew Pomeranz, reports the San Diego Union Tribune. The Padres are getting top pitching prospect Anderson Espinoza back in the trade. 

The 27-year-old lefty made the switch to a full-time starter this year and that's done wonders for his value. He pitched in the All-Star game this year. Pomeranz had never hit 100 innings before this season. This year, he has a 8-7 record with a 2.47 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. He's under team control until after the 2018 season. 

Pomeranz is no stranger to being dealt. The No. 5 overall pick by the Indians in 2010, he was traded to the Rockies in 2011 as part of the trade for Ubaldo Jimenez. In 2013, Pomeranz was sent to the Athletics in exchange for pitcher Brett Anderson. In 2015, he was traded again, this time to the Padres in a deal that sent Yonder Alonso to the A's. 

Espinoza is just 18 years old and is listed as Baseball America's No. 15 prospect. He's posted a 5-8 record with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.368 WHIP. He's shown flashes of serious talent.
