Chad Bettis will start for the Rockies against the Giants Friday night. A familiar name for Rockies fans, Drew Pomeranz, will be on the mound for the Giants.

The left-handed Pomeranz was the Indians first-round draft choice in 2010, the fifth player taken overall. He was part of the package the Indians sent to the Rockies on July 30, 2011 for right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez. That began a series of move that has seen Pomeranz also spend time with the A's, Padres and Red Sox before signing with the Giants as a free agency in January.
