Colorado Rockies activate pitchers Roy Oswalt, Drew Pomeranz


Colorado Rockies pitcher Roy Oswalt, who hasn’t seen any action since July 7th, has been activated by the team along with pitcher Drew Pomeranz on Friday.

From the Associated Press report:

Oswalt had been sidelined by a strained left hamstring. The veteran right-hander signed a minor league deal with Colorado in May and is 0-4 with a 7.64 ERA in four starts with the Rockies.

Pomeranz had been out with left biceps tendinitis. The lefty is 0-4 with an 8.10 ERA in four starts.

It’s safe to say that both pitchers didn’t have the season they wanted with a combined 0-8 in eight combined starts and an extremely high ERA for both.

Oswalt is largely known for his great start with the Houston Astros winning 10 or more games from 2001 through 2008 with the team, including 20 wins back-to-back in 2004 and 2005. His combined record was 129-64 in that stretch.

Things faltered from there, reaching double-digit wins in 2010 when he was traded from the Astros to the Philadelphia Phillies. He spent time with the Texas Rangers in 2012 and went 4-3 in just nine games started.
