The rotation Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco wanted to use last week against TCU is the one he’s penciled in for this weekend against Vermont in the final pre-SEC tune-up.
The Rebels will go with right-hander Aaron Barrett (0-1, 8.38) Friday, left-hander Drew Pomeranz (0-0, 4.50) on Saturday and right-hander Phillip Irwin (1-0, 2.00) on Sunday.
While Barrett has given up some runs, he does have a strikeout/walk ratio of 12/2.
Pomeranz threw for the first time this season Tuesday against Arkansas State, just two innings in what amounted to a bullpen session. He gave up one run.
Vermont opened at Vanderbilt last weekend, dropping all three games by scores of 7-2, 14-3 and 14-1.
