MLB Rumors: Giants Drawing Interest in Drew Pomeranz Before Trade Deadline

Days before the July 31 MLB trade deadline, it's still a mystery if the Giants will be buyers, sellers or stand pat. As they continue to contend in the NL wild-card race, a surprising veteran has other teams calling the front office. 

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Monday that the Giants are "drawing sudden interest" in left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz. 

The 30-year-old is just 2-9 with a 5.75 ERA this season, but he's been a whole different pitcher since the Giants moved him to the bullpen. Pomeranz has struck out six batters over 4 2/3 scoreless innings as a reliever and hasn't allowed a single hit. 

That's quite the difference compared to a 6.10 ERA as a starter.

The Giants already have plenty of left-handed options out of the 'pen, and have lefties in Triple-A Sacramento who can quickly contribute. Moving Pomeranz could make a ton of sense, though it could be tough losing someone who has played a key role lately for the red-hot Giants. 

Time is ticking away before the trade deadline, and Pomeranz's time as a Giant could be coming to an end.
