Rockies P Drew Pomeranz May Start Sunday Vs. Padres

The Colorado Rockies have suffered through a difficult month of June, but they may have one of their top prospects usher them into July for a fresh start. Drew Pomeranz, former first-round pick (No. 5 overall) from the 2010 MLB Draft and key piece in the Ubaldo Jimenez trade, is likely to be promoted by the Rockies to start against the San Diego Padres on Sunday, according to Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post.

Pomeranz has posted an impressive 2.51 ERA and a 10.0 strikeouts per nine innings ratio over 46.2 innings pitched for Triple-A Colorado Springs in 2012. The 23-year-old hurler has appeared in five games for the Rockies this season, amassing two losses and a 4.70 ERA over 23.0 innings.
