First round pick in last years draft, guy is absolutely dealing in High A ball.  Probably will get the nod up to AA soon.

http://web.minorleag...t...&pid=519141

Check out his stats.

I got one more minor league spot and I am deciding between him, Matt Harvey, Leonys Martin or Jared Cosart.

I really like all the reports I read on Pomeranz though.  

"First, the good news. Pomeranz is a 6-5, 235 pound lefty with a  terrific  arm. His performance this year has been excellent, with a 1.38  ERA and a  90/24 K/BB in 59 innings, with just 34 hits allowed. His  K/IP and H/IP  marks are outstanding, and are statistical confirmation  of the stuff  that scouts see: a 90-94 MPH fastball with movement and an  unusually  good breaking ball. His command can wobble on occasion, but  his stuff is  so good that even patient college hitters have trouble  against him. The  bad news…um, well, there really isn't any, other than  the  aforementioned occasional command issue. He could use a better  changeup,  but again that's a relatively minor concern considering his  overall  package. I expect he'll go either to the Pirates at Number Two  or the Orioles at Number three."

Where did you get that quote from?  I find it interesting that someone had him higher than James Taillon or Manny Machado on their board last year.

I saw this guy pitch back when he was at Ole Miss.  I went to South Carolina so I follow SEC baseball and he's real close to David Price in terms of being able to take over a game and rack up strikeouts...maybe not as the same rate as Price but Pomeranz is as close as I've seen so ceiling is pretty high IMO.  What he's doing in A ball so far is about what he did at Ole Miss....the Gamecocks got to him one time but we had a badass team that year and hit everyone.  He was well over 12 K's per 9 that year.

Promoted to AA after tearing up single A. Top 5 pitching prospect heading into next season, maybe #1? Could reach the majors next year and he's not blocked in Cleveland.

He is certainly not going to be #1 and I wouldn't put him in the top 5. I think he comes in around the 8-10 range amongst starting pitcher prospects right now. That being said I do think he has a pretty high floor but don't believe he has the elite ceiling.

Figured it was worth mentioning that he was promoted to AA. I'm thinking his ETA is 2012.

How do we like his prospects in Colorado versus Cleveland now that he's going to be pitching in the PCL and eventually in Coors?

Who's to say he pitches in the PCL. He may skip there like Nicasio did.

Double edge sword with the trade, not good going to Coors but anytime you get to face a pitcher 3 times a game that should help.

First start of the year in the PCL-5.2IP, 4H, 0ER, 1BB, 8K

I think this kid could make a big comeback if he can command his stuff a little better. He'll be on my radar

He has something like a 3.5 ERA 1.18 WHIP and 44:15 K:BB thorugh seven starts so far. Coaches are saying he's developed his changeup which is paying off big against right handed hitters. They say he's ready, so a call-up could be a possibility with Francis to the DL.

Pomeranz is a guy I am definitely watching. He's been doing great in AAA this season with numbers to the tune of 3.18/1.19 and a 10.0 K/9 through 39.2 innings. He is also 5-0 which I think is worth noting. At 24 he could do big things this season if he sticks around, but so far he has been pretty awful in the majors (5.01/1.45 and 7.5 K/9 career). His numbers from AAA in 2012 are interesting to say the least, 2.51/1.54 and 8.9 K/9. The 1.54 WHIP sticks out like a sore thumb to me, so I'd say he was very lucky to keep his ERA under 3.00. He then put up a 1.48 WHIP in the majors over 96.2 innings that season. So, the high WHIP carried over and the low ERA didn't, but this season with his drastically improved WHIP I'd say he's someone to keep your eye on. Even if that WHIP inflates to 1.25 I'd say he still could put up a sub 4.00 ERA which would make him worth owning in deep leagues and especially dynasty/keeper leagues.

This guy has been getting rocked lately....bad.  I wonder if there's anything physically wrong or if he's lost confidence due to how COL mis-managed their entire staff last year.  Looking at Pomeranz's starts, it's almost like he's got a mental block at getting past the 5th or 6th inning.

At least the K's are still there.....anyone have any real insight other than amateur box score tea leaf readings?
