One-on-one with Ole Miss’ Drew Pomeranz

Pomeranz, in the midst of a huge draft year that likely will end as a first round pick in the upcoming MLB draft, has managed to improve even more since last season.

So far this spring, Pomeranz has made five starts and compiled a 1.23 ERA in 29 1/3 innings of work. He also has struck out 49 and walked nine and teams are hitting him at a .170 clip.

“He has probably been more consistent, but it’s hard to say because he has been so good throughout his career,” Bianco said. “I would say, though, there is more consistency in the strike zone with all three pitches. He certainly has gotten off to a great start. He is a good one.”
