Drew Pomeranz

Former Rebel picks up win in Major League debut

DENVER (AP) — As expected, former Ole Miss Rebel Drew Pomeranz was quite nervous in his major league debut.
Only, not on the mound, but with a bat in his hands in his one and only plate appearance.

Even then, Pomeranz was a success, laying down a perfect sacrifice bunt. It was just that kind of day for the prized prospect. (more…) (September 12, 2011, Page 4B)

Pomeranz promoted to Rockies

Former Ole Miss ace Drew Pomeranz was promoted to the Colorado Rockies following three perfect innings for Double-A Tulsa Drillers on Monday.

The promotion comes just over two weeks after Pomeranz had an emergency appendectomy, an operation that was expected to end his season. (more…) (September 6, 2011, Page 7)

Help may be on the way for recruiters

College baseball recruiters have an unenviable job at times.

It’s not enough for them to correctly evaluate talent and then get kids to commit — and eventually sign — with their program. (more…) (April 29, 2011, Page 6A)

Crouse turns successful offseason into Friday night role for Rebels

There’s been plenty of questions surrounding the Ole Miss baseball team heading into today’s season opener against Wright State.

What hasn’t been in question? Who is taking the place of top draft pick Drew Pomeranz as the Friday night starter.

That honor goes to junior left-hander Matt Crouse, and apparently the choice to go with the Virginian was an obvious one. (February 18, 2011, Page 6A)

Head hopeful to re-invent himself

This weekend standouts from Ole Miss’ past will flood Oxford for the program’s first Alumni Game, pitting professionals against the current squad.

While many of the former Rebels will be looking to have a good time and re-connect with former teammates, one in particular will have a bit more in mind.

Rebs’ Pomeranz signs late-night deal

It went down to the final minutes, but Ole Miss pitcher Drew Pomeranz is now a professional baseball player.

Just before Monday’s midnight EDT deadline, the All-American pitcher signed a contract with the Cleveland Indians organization.

According to the Associated Press, the contract includes a $2.65 million signing bonus, which is just over the Major League Baseball suggested slot price for the No. 5 player ($2.52 million). (August 17, 2010, Page 6)

Mathis hungry to keep re-established confidence

Last season was one long roller coaster for Tanner Mathis.

The freshmen blew his teammates away in the fall when he not only led his team with a .410 batting average, but the outfielder also had the second-best ERA on the team at 2.77.

Mathis then turned an impressive fall into a productive start to the actual season and it looked as if his introduction to Ole Miss fans was no fluke.

As the season continued, however, Mathis began to lose his confidence.

During the April 4 game against Tennessee the sky figuratively crashed down on Mathis. (July 15, 2010, Page 6)

OM’s Pomeranz ready for next step

A lot has changed for Drew Pomeranz since 2007.

For starters, when the left-hander was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 12th round — and subsequently was offered “considerably less than I’m about to get” — he was hovering over a computer awaiting his name to pop up via the dial-up connection.

On Monday, he was watching himself being interviewed by Peter Gammons and Harold Reynolds on the MLB Network, after being selected fifth overall by the Cleveland Indians. (June 9, 2010, Page 6)
