KUSA - The Colorado Rockies picked up left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson from the Oakland A's for Drew Pomeranz and a minor-leaguer, the teams announced Tuesday.

Anderson, 25, is 26-29 in five seasons with a 3.81 ERA. In 84 games, he has 357 strikeouts and 120 walks. Last season, Anderson was 1-3 with three saves and a 6.04 ERA but missed the middle of the season because of a stress fracture in his right foot.

Pomeranz bounced around the Rockies organization last season, from double-A to the majors. In three seasons with Colorado Pomeranz, 25, was 4-14 with a 5.20 ERA in 34 games (30 starts).

Last week, the Rockies sent Dexter Fowler to Houston for outfielder Brandon Barnes and right-handed pitcher Jordan Lyles, who was14-29 in three seasons with the Astros.

The Rockies also will give the A's right-handed pitcher Chris Jensen, who spend all of last season in in Modesto.
