SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Padres have placed left-handed reliever Drew Pomeranz on the 10-day injured list with a strained left shoulder, retroactive to Wednesday.
To take his spot, right-hander Luis Perdomo was recalled from the alternate training site. Pomeranz was signed to a $34 million, four-year free agent deal in November. He hadn’t allowed a run in nine innings over 10 appearances this year while striking out 12 and walking three.
Pomeranz’s injury is the latest for a bullpen that had been projected as the team’s major strength.
The Padres put closer Kirby Yates on the IL last week with an inflamed right elbow.
