The Rockies have activated pitchers Roy Oswalt and Drew Pomeranz from the disabled list, reports Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. Saunders suggests Oswalt could start as soon as Sunday against the Padres. Pomeranz says he still isn’t ready to pitch in a game.

Pomeranz started the season with Triple-A Colorado Springs, posting a 4.15 over 15 starts. The Rockies promoted him and had him make four starts between June 30 and July 22. The lefty compiled an 8.10 ERA before landing on the disabled list with biceps tendinitis.

Oswalt signed a Minor League deal with the Rockies on May 2. He began his season with Double-A Tulsa, then made his 2013 debut with the Rockies on June 20. He made four starts, posting a 7.64 ERA prior to suffering a strained left hamstring. He rehabbed with Single-A Grand Junction, throwing five and two-thirds shutout innings on Tuesday.

    The Rockies aren’t paying Oswalt anything are they? He’s already in the Disabled List Hall of Fame.

    They must not have anyone on staff who can evaluate talent, desire and durability.

    Rockies activate Roy Oswalt

    Did they give him a Black Lantern ring? That’s the only way I can think of reactivating his career.

    Oswalt will be on the DL again before the end of the season, make book on it.
