Drew Pomeranz

Drew Pomeranz   LHP    Mississippi   Jr

6-5   231 lbs   Throw:  L  Bats:  L

Judged  by many scouts to be the best left handed college pitcher in the draft, Pomeranz will go early. Probably in the top 5 picks.

Throwing his fastball at 91-94 mph with good movement, he also has a power curve (77-81 mph) with good tilt. His changeup needs more work but is improving. Drew has good mechanics and improving control (lodging 4.5 walks/9 innings in the past).

As the Friday starter for Mississippi he has been aggressively scouted and the thought is that he will possess 3 above average pitches in the majors.

Drafted by the Rangers in the 12th round in 2007, he returned to school when his deal fell through.

There was concern and a drop in his expectations in May when he had a pectoral muscle strain but has come back strong and climbed back up the draft charts.
