There was a lesson to be learned from last season. Immediately after Drew Pomeranz's extremely uncomfortable four-inning outing in Oakland back on May 18, 2017 -- in which he threw 97 pitches before exiting -- it seemed only right to call for the lefty to shift into a bullpen role.

Pomeranz opened 2017 on the disabled list, debuted on April 11, and was struggling with a 3-3 record and 4.97 ERA as late as May 20. That afternoon, he openly feuded...
