Rockies’ Pomeranz struggles after call-up

By NEMS Daily Journal

Colorado Rockies lefthander Drew Pomeranz worked himself back to the majors, believing he had straightened out his mechanics.
After a second straight shaky outing, it’s clear the former Ole
Miss standout still has some work to do.
Pomeranz (0-2) allowed five runs in the first three innings Saturday night and Arizona rolled to an 11-1 victory.
He has a 9.72 ERA after two tough MLB starts.
“I have worked on a lot of things this year and have gotten better and haven’t been throwing like this,” Pomeranz said. “So it’s something that I need to figure out and give us a better chance to win.”
The lefty labored from the start against Arizona, needing 10 pitches to get leadoff hitter A.J. Pollock.
The fifth overall pick in 2010, Pomeranz was 8-1 this season in 15 starts at Triple-A Colorado Springs.
