Charges against Pomeranz dropped

BLOG: The disturbing the peace charges against Drew Pomeranz stemming from an incident in downtown Oxford have been dismissed, the Oxford Municipal Court confirmed this afternoon.

Pomeranz, a former Ole Miss baseball player currently pitching for the Colorado Rockies, was arrested at 1:25 a.m. on Oct. 14 and charged with disturbing the peace. He was later released at 4:40 a.m. on a cash bond.

According to someone close to the situation, the charges were dismissed with costs. The amount of the fine was not disclosed.

On Jan. 13, Pomeranz tweeted (see screen grab below) “focused on baseball & looking forward to (spring training)” after his representation (@BHSCouncil) had tweeted the charges were dropped.

The left-handed pitcher made his Major League debut in 2011 with the Colorado Rockies organization after being a centerpiece in the trade that sent ace Ubaldo Jimenez to the Cleveland Indians.

Pomeranz was 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA in four starts for the Rockies. He also struck out 13 and walked five in 18.1 innings.

In 2011 Pomeranz played with three minor league clubs while he ascended the Indians and Rockies farm systems, posting a 4-3 record and a 1.78 ERA. (January 19, 2012)
