● Dan Straily was banished to the minors yesterday, which secures a rotation spot for Drew Pomeranz, a 25-year-old former top prospect out of the Rockies' farm system. Pomeranz has struggled immensely since getting promoted to the show; he had a 6.23 ERA last year, and walked as many people (19) as he struck out. On the bright side, he has a 1.82 ERA with 16 strikeouts and 6 walks in 18.2 innings this season, he's pitching in Oå.co Coliseum instead of Coors Field, and he's on a team that's actually going to win him games, as opposed to the Rockies. His numbers were so awful in Colorado that he still cannot be trusted in a start. If he can come away from his scheduled outing against the White Sox next week without getting torn to shreds, ala Brandon McCarthy, then it might be time to make the add. Until then, the positive sample size is just too small.
