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.
