Pomeranz Leaves Early

Drew Pomeranz came out of the game after two scoreless innings, citing “tightness in the right hip”.  He told MLB.COM:

I started feeling it in the warm up…I could have still pitched…It’s just an annoying little thing I felt.

He went on to say that he usually feels it the next day after Spring Training starts this season.  He mentioned to Troy Renck:

[I]t wasn’t worth the risk…I am kind of (upset) I had to come out.

Let’s hope this isn’t the start of something bigger…

another 2 innings of shutout ball by Pomeranz running his scoreless streak to all 3 games in which he appeared. And this was against a one loss Dodger team made up of what looks to be most of their starting lineup. He is slowly making his way up to #2 or #3 if JT wants to alternate righty vs lefty. Add Johnny Herrera to making a case (again) for keeping him on the roster. Clutch hitting and great defense. You… Read more »

I’ll make the case for Johnny Sparkplug every season he is an option – love the kid and think he has what it takes…i do believe he was “driven cold” by tracy last season since he was sat down several games in a row at a time, even though he had the 3rd best batting average at the time…but, if it is between Nelson and Herrera and Nelson is out of options and Herrera isn’t then I’d take Nelson, just… Read more »

Go Jonny! None of those guys will beat him out. He may frustrate people due to lesser talent, but his heart makes up for it. My favorite guy. Wish he could be the “clubhouse leader.”

Re Pomeranz: a hip is a lot less scary than a shoulder or elbow. Everybody cross yer fingers!

I like Jonny, but even though his production is ok it seems like the Rockies don’t win with him out there.

The more reports you hear coming out of Scottsdale, but the more the writing is on the wall that Casey Blake won’t be on this team. You are starting to hear the name of Brandon Wood being thrown about quite a bit lately. Would the Rox brass be willing to go with some combination of Wood/Nelson/Pacheco to start the season at 3rd and see which player grabs the bull by the horns until Arenado is ready? Should be a very… Read more »

Pretty sure Blake’s contract becomes guaranteed if he makes the opening day 25 man roster. Despite all the reports I would put a lot of money on it that Blake is your Opening Day third baseman.

He may win the position yet, but the fact that his contract is only guaranteed if he makes the rosters supports that he won’t be here long. The Rockies aren’t in the position to carry his salary if he can’t be trusted.
