Doctors have assured Red Sox LHP Drew Pomeranz that he won't need offseason surgery, according to Dave Dombrowski. Pomeranz pitched in Game 3 of Division Series vs. Cleveland, but dealt with late-season forearm soreness. The Padres also didn't disclose entirety of his medical records before trading him to Red Sox in July.
