Colorado Rockies pitcher Drew Pomeranz has been arrested for disturbing the peace.

Colorado Rockies pitcher Drew Pomeranz was arrested by Oxford, Miss., police on Friday morning, reports the Oxford Eagle. He was taken in for disturbing the peace. The arrest came at 2:25 a.m. ET and he was released on bond several hours later. No other details have emerged. The Rockies are expected to release a statement on Friday, according to Troy Renck.

Pomeranz was acquired by the Rockies as part of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade in July. He was the key component of the game and could not officially join the Rockies until Aug. 15, one year after he officially signed his first contract.

Pomeranz threw several perfect innings of minor league ball for the Rockies and had an appendectomy before he was brought up to the major league club. He went 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA in four starts. He is expected to compete for a spot in the 2012 rotation.

Pomeranz went to college at Ole Miss in Oxford.
