Drew Pomeranz reminds me a lot of 2009’s big-time SEC LHP starting prospect, Vanderbilt’s Mike Minor.
Pomeranz will survive in the big leagues with a fastball he will command at 90-92. His curveball will be his primary weapon but the one concern I have is what will be his third weapon. His change-up, unlike Minor’s isn’t developed. I don’t like to say a guy has a great change-up but won’t use it against metal or because the coach won’t let him throw it. If you got it, flaunt it. There’s a chance Pomeranz could develop a touch more power than Minor, but he will have to be careful not to screw up his delivery in favor of power. A good comparison for Pomeranz might be a guy like Angel left-hander Joe Saunders, who uses a fastball-slider-change-up package to win. OFP: 55
