Pomeranz among Rockies pitchers headed to fall league
The Colorado Rockies have settled on the four pitchers they will send to the Arizona Fall League: left-hander, who will make his major-league debut on Sunday, and right-handers Joe Gardner, and Parker Frazier.
Pomeranz, a 2010 first-round pick by the Cleveland Indians who made his professional debut this season, was 4-3 with a 1.78 ERA at two levels in the Indians and Rockies organizations this season.
Gardner, like Pomeranz, was acquired by the Rockies in July in the deal that sentto the Indians. He was 10-11 with a 4.31 ERA at Double-A this year, including 3-3, 2.48 at Tulsa after the trade. He may spend time his time in Arizona working on a transition to the bullpen.
Weathers, the Rockies first-round pick in 2007, was 2-2 with a 5.22 ERA at Tulsa. Walks were a problem — 48 in 45 2/3 innings — for Weathers, who missed all of the 2009 season and pitched just 30 games in 2010 following Tommy John surgery.
Frazier was 11-11 with a 4.50 ERA at high Class A Modesto and set career highs in wins, innings (154) and starts (27).
The Rockies previously had announced its position players for the fall league: Tulsa outfielder, Modesto third baseman and Tulsa first baseman .
