Colorado optioned Drew Pomeranz to the minors on Friday. But the touted former Ole Miss star will only be gone from the big club for a short while. The Rockies, who open on April 6, won’t need a fifth starter until April 15, and Pomeranz is penciled in for that day. He was 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA in four starts for the Rockies last summer after being acquired from Cleveland. … In other recent moves: Kansas City optioned former Pillow Academy standout Louis Coleman to Triple-A; he pitched well for the Royals as a rookie in 2011. Outfielder Jarrod Dyson, a Southwest Mississippi Community College alumnus, also has been optioned out by KC. The New York Yankees sent Mississippi State product Craig Tatum to Triple-A; a waiver claim from Arizona, Tatum will await an emergency call-up as a reserve catcher. Cleveland reassigned veteran outfielder Fred Lewis, who has had an elbow injury, to minor league camp; the former Mississippi Gulf Coast CC standout finished last season in the minors with Cincinnati. Ole Miss product Matt Tolbert, in the Chicago Cubs’ camp as a non-roster invitee, has been shipped out to minor league camp.
