The San Diego Padres reinstated left-handers Blake Snell and Drew Pomeranz from the 10-day injured list prior to Saturday’s game against the host Washington Nationals.

Snell was slated to start for the Padres. He hasn’t pitched since July 4 due to gastroenteritis.

The 28-year-old Snell is 3-3 with a 4.99 ERA in 16 starts this season, his first with the Padres since being acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays.

Snell, the 2018 American League Cy Young Award winner, is 45-33 with a 3.43 ERA in 124 career starts over six seasons.

Pomeranz has been sidelined with a forearm injury since last pitching on July 6.

The 32-year-old has a 1.59 ERA in 18 relief appearances this season. He has struck out 22 and allowed 12 hits over 17 innings.

Pomeranz is 47-58 with a 3.93 ERA in 280 appearances (140 starts) over 11 seasons with six teams.

The Padres also optioned right-hander James Norwood to Triple-A El Paso. Norwood, 27, hasn’t allowed a run in four appearances for San Diego.
