Rockies Vs. White Sox Preview: Drew Pomeranz Makes Cactus League Start Day After Joining Rotation

Drew Pomeranz was officially named the Colorado Rockies' fifth starter on Friday night, but he won't make his first start of the regular season until Sunday, April 15. He'll stay in extended spring training, but on Saturday Pomeranz will take the mound against the Chicago White Sox.

Pomeranz dealt with a slight hip injury two starts ago, but he returned to the mound on March 26 by throwing four innings of one-run ball. He is 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA this spring.

Here is the Rockies' lineup for Saturday:

LF Eric Young Jr.
CF Dexter Fowler
DH Wilin Rosario
C Ramon Hernandez
3B Jordan Pacheco
RF Tyler Colvin
2B Chris Nelson
1B Brandon Wood
SS Jonathan Herrera
P Drew Pomeranz

John Danks will look to shutdown this lineup when the teams play at 2:05 p.m MT. MLB.com will have a free webcast of this game.
