Drew Pomeranz Will Make Rockies Debut Sunday, Play In Arizona Fall League

Just a few weeks after undergoing an appendectomy, Drew Pomeranz will make his Colorado Rockies debut on Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds, according to Tracy Ringolsby. Additionally, Pomeranz will pitch in the Arizona Fall League, according to Thomas Harding.

Pomeranz pitched a perfect game into the seventh inning of his first start with the Double-A Tulsa Drillers before the emergency appendectomy. He returned to the mound on Monday and pitched three perfect innings. The Rockies decided they would bring him up for the rest of the season. However, how much time on the mound he will receive is up in the air.

Since he will also take part in the Arizona Fall League, Pomeranz might be held to just a start or two with the Rockies. They will want to monitor his workload closely over the next month and a half to make sure he doesn't wind up exhausting himself.

Pomeranz should compete for a rotation spot during 2012 spring training.

Drew Pomeranz Stellar In Tulsa Debut

Top prospect Drew Pomeranz officially joined the Colorado Rockies organization earlier on Wednesday, August 17. He had a debut to remember for the AA Tulsa Drillers.

Pomeranz was the Player to be Named Later in the Ubaldo Jimenez trade, and was the top prospect in the Cleveland Indians farm system and viewed as a fast riser through the minor leagues. In his Drillers debut, Pomeranz threw seven scoreless innings while striking out four hitters. He had six perfect innings before allowing two singles in the seventh inning on just 78 pitches.

With the dominant performance, Pomeranz continues to build his resume towards a September callup to the Rockies for his MLB debut.
