JUPITER, Fla. — Drew Pomeranz of the Boston Red Sox left his first spring-training start Friday after one inning because of left forearm tightness.


Pomeranz breezed through the first against the St. Louis Cardinals, retiring the side in order with 13 pitches, then felt an issue while warming up for the second.

He threw four pitches to Marcell Ozuna, then summoned catcher Blake Swihart to the mound, talked with a trainer and departed.

“I wasn’t really pushing it so I just was like, ‘You know what? There’s no point,’ ” Pomeranz said. “Figure out what’s going on and shut it down.”

Pomeranz, 17-6 with a 3.32 ERA for the Red Sox last season, will undergo further examinations Saturday.

“I’m not too worried about it,” he said.

METS: Tim Tebow made his first spring-training start this year, striking out against Max Scherzer, then singling off Erick Fedde in a 2-1 loss to Washington at Port St. Lucie, Florida.

BRAVES: Scott Kazmir, 34, bidding for a rotation spot after coming back from a hip injury, pitched two scoreless innings and worked out of jams in a 5-4 loss to the New York Yankees.
