Drew Pomeranz came out of the game after two scoreless innings, citing “tightness in the right hip”. He told MLB.COM:
I started feeling it in the warm up…I could have still pitched…It’s just an annoying little thing I felt.
He went on to say that he usually feels it the next day after Spring Training starts this season. He mentioned to Troy Renck:
[I]t wasn’t worth the risk…I am kind of (upset) I had to come out.
Let’s hope this isn’t the start of something bigger…
