Drew Pomeranz: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The A's acquired the former first-round pick from the Rockies for Brett Anderson in the offseason and he responded with a very solid season. Pomeranz started the year working out of the A's bullpen, but he was pressed into starting duty in May. He spent approximately six weeks in the rotation, allowing two runs or fewer in six of his eight starts, before breaking his right hand punching a chair after a poor outing against the Rangers. After the injury had healed, the A's had traded for a few starters and he spent the rest of the year starting in Sacramento, except for a couple of spot starts with the A's during the second half. Overall, Pomeranz put up a 2.58 ERA as a starter with a strong 8.6 K/9 rate. Pomeranz has a shot to win a job in the A's rotation to start the year, especially with Jarrod Parker and A.J. Griffin returning from Tommy John surgery and likely to be unavailable to begin the 2015 season.
The Rockies have given Pomeranz every opportunity to clamp down a permanent rotation spot in each of the past two seasons, but despite his top-notch pedigree, he’s failed to develop into a remotely capable big league starter. In fact, the 2013 season arguably represented a step back for Pomeranz, who was sub-replacement level in his eight appearances (four starts) with the Rockies, posting a 6.23 ERA and unsightly 7.9 BB/9 rate. Control issues have dogged the lefty as he’s advanced through the system, though he did negotiate the strike zone better in his four September appearances out of the bullpen. Seeking a more established veteran for the rotation, the Rockies traded Pomeranz to the A's in December for Brett Anderson, where it's expected that Pomeranz will attempt to secure the final spot in the Oakland rotation during spring training.
Pomeranz's rookie campaign was mostly forgettable, as the young lefty's inability to command his secondary pitches resulted in a 4.3 BB/9. When he did find the strike zone, Pomeranz was either not whiffing batters as often as anticipated (7.7 K/9) or getting taken yard (13.6% HR/FB rate). With the Rockies returning to a traditional five-man rotation with pitchers expected to be held between 90 and 100 pitches each outing, Pomeranz should at least get more innings and wins under his belt since high pitch counts usually chased him from games prematurely last season once the rotation moved to a roughly 75-pitch limit per start. Pomeranz's three-pitch repertoire arguably gives him the best pure stuff among the team's pitching staff, but he will need to demonstrate greater control to make good on his considerable potential, especially at a place like Coors Field.
Pomeranz was the centerpiece of the blockbuster deal that sent Ubaldo Jimenez to the Indians last season, and he managed to make four big league starts in September after opening the year at High-A Kinston. Considering that he finished his college career at Ole Miss as a polished left-hander with a low-to-mid-90s fastball, plus-curveball and change-up, the fast track shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Pomeranz projects as an eventual strikeout-per-inning starter, and at age 23 he could break spring training with a rotation spot for the Rockies. Even if the Rockies send him to Triple-A for additional seasoning, he'll likely be in the big leagues for good before the All-Star break.
The Indians selected Pomeranz fifth overall in the 2010 amateur draft, but he didn't sign until the August deadline and was unable to make a professional debut last season. He already has two very good offerings in a low-90s fastball and a knuckle-curve. His control is still a work in progress, but he has the ability to miss a lot of bats and develop into a potential No. 1 or No. 2 starter if he's able to polish up a third offering -- likely a changeup -- in his arsenal. Pomeranz may pitch as high as Double-A this season, and with reasonable progression could reach the Indians' rotation at some point in 2012.
