Pomeranz did not factor into the decision after throwing five innings of one-run ball Tuesday, giving up three hits and a walk while striking out four in an extra-inning win over the Rockies.
Pomeranz was actually in line for his third win of the season, but closer Will Smith uncharacteristically blew a three-run lead in the ninth. There were rumors that the southpaw and his 6.10 ERA could be moved out of the rotation this past weekend, but the team decided to give him another shot, and it paid off. all things considered. Pomeranz is still at risk of being converted into a reliever, considering the recent promotion of Andrew Suarez and Pomeranz's inability to go past five innings in all but one start this season. If he does get another turn in the rotation, it would come Sunday at home against the Mets, but he wouldn't be more than a strikeout streamer for that matchup. Yesterday 6:02 am (EST)
