LHP Pomeranz makes major league debut

The Colorado Rockies selected the contract of left-hander Drew
Pomeranz from Double-A Tulsa ahead of his major league debut Sunday
against the Cincinnati Reds.

Pomeranz was one of the key pieces in the trade this summer that
sent ace Ubaldo Jimenez to the Cleveland Indians.

The Rockies also selected the contract of infielder Thomas Field
from Tulsa. Field started Sunday in place of Troy Tulowitzki, who
sat out with a sore hip.

To make room on the roster, the team placed outfielder Ryan
Spilborghs (plantar fasciitis right foot) on the 60-day disabled
list and designated catcher Matt Pagnozzi for assignment.

The 22-year-old Pomeranz turned in two scoreless starts for
Tulsa, striking out seven in 10 innings.
