News: Pomeranz felt tightness in his right hip during warmups Tuesday but is expected to be back Wednesday, Joe Stiglich for CSN California reports.
Impact: Pomeranz has had hip tightness in the past, and he said it does not last longer than a day. He is in the competition for one of the A's three open rotation slots. During this spring training, Pomeranz has 2.00 ERA, giving up nine hits and three runs and 15 strikeouts over nine innings, which fits with his 2014 stats (2.35 ERA and 64 strikeouts over 69 innings).

News: Pomeranz had a strong spring start on Wednesday, allowing only one run over four innings while striking out five.
Impact: Pomeranz is currently in the mix for one of the A's three open rotation slots and Wednesday's outing did nothing to hurt his cause. He has now struck out 15 batters over his nine spring innings while allowing only three walks. His success as a starter last year (2.85 ERA in 10 starts) will definitely serve as a plus in his column when the A's decide on their rotation.
