2020 Fantasy Outlook
A midseason move to the bullpen changed the course of Pomeranz's career, as he parlayed a late-season run of relief dominance with the Brewers into a lucrative multi-year contract with the Padres. Pomeranz received a one-year deal to start for the Giants last year and struggled in that role. He was moved to the bullpen in late July and found immediate success; and although he had just four relief outings under his belt, the Brewers bet that would continue and acquired him at the trade deadline. The hunch proved right, as Pomeranz did his best Josh Hader impression (15.5 K/9, 0.91 WHIP) and became one of Milwaukee's most important relievers down the stretch. Pomeranz's stuff played up as a reliever, and he used a lethal mid-90s-fastball/curveball combination to frequently fool hitters. Given that, expect him to remain in relief with his new team and slot into a setup role in front of closer Kirby Yates. Read Past Outlooks
