MLB Injury News:
The Colorado Rockies placed young left-hander Drew Pomeranz
on the 15-day disabled list with biceps tendinitis in his throwing arm,
according to Ian McCue of MLB.com. He was replaced on the Rockiesâ€™ roster by
outfielder Corey Dickerson.
Pomeranz has been dealing with the tendinitis for the past
two weeks, which McCue believes could help explain his recent inconsistent
performance. In each of his last four starts, the southpaw has lasted fewer
than five innings and allowed at least three earned runs.
Despite his struggles, the former top prospect remains
confident in his abilities. He feels that the necessary next step is recovering
from his current ailment, and after that he believes he has what it takes to
become a successful starter in the majors.
"I'm fine," Pomeranz said. "I know what I
need to do. The first step is getting rid of this [injury], and I'll work on
the other things later."
Pomeranz will rest his arm for a few days before learning of
his rehab schedule. The 24-year-old has struggled to the tune of an 8.10 ERA and
2.520 WHIP over four starts spanning 16 2/3 innings.
