DENVER (AP) — Colorado Rockies left-hander Drew Pomeranz will make his major league debut Sunday when he starts against the Cincinnati Reds.
Pomeranz was one of four players Colorado acquired from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Ubaldo Jimenez on July 31. He was originally the player to be named later in the deal and didn’t officially join the Rockies until Aug. 15.
On Aug. 20, he underwent an emergency appendectomy, and 16 days later he made his first start with Double A Tulsa, working three perfect innings. He will be on a pitch count for his start against the Reds.
