Disturbing the peace charges were dropped against Rockies left-hander Drew Pomeranz, his agency Beverly Hills Sports Council announced earlier today.

Pomeranz, who was acquired from the Indians last July as the centerpiece of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade, was arrested in Oxford, Mississippi in mid-October following an incident after coming out of a bar with friends.

The 23-year-old southpaw wrote the following on his Twitter account earlier this afternoon:

Pomeranz, the fifth overall pick of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft, had an excellent 1.78 ERA over 20 starts in the minor leagues last season before posting a 5.40 ERA and 13/5 K/BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings with the Rockies as a September call-up. He’s expected to open the 2012 season in the starting rotation.

Orioles CEO, brother agree to dismiss legal dispute

Baltimore Orioles CEO John Angelos and his brother Lou have agreed to end their fight over a lawsuit in which Lou accused John of seizing control of the team in defiance of their father Peter’s wishes.

Lou Angelos sued John last year, claiming John took control of the Orioles at his expense. Georgia Angelos, their mother, also was named as a defendant.

In a Friday court filing in the case, John, Lou, Georgia and Peter Angelos called on “all claims, including all counterclaims and defenses, asserted therein be dismissed with prejudice in their entirety.”

“The Parties also withdraw and terminate all pending motions submitted in these actions,” the filing said.

Peter Angelos became the Orioles’ owner in 1993, but his public role has diminished in recent years and he turned 93 last year. According to the suit, he had surgery after his aortic valve failed in 2017.

Lou Angelos accused John of trying to take control of Peter Angelos’ assets and manipulating Georgia Angelos. The lawsuit was one of a handful of off-field issues looming over the Orioles this offseason. The team also has a lease at Camden Yards that expires at the end of the year.
