As a quick note, I'll be appearing on the Fantasy Baseball Roundtable Radio Show tonight at 10:30 PM EST (about 30 minutes from now). It was a last minute invite to help fill in for someone who won't be able to make it, so sorry this is coming a little late. Feel free to listen in if you would like.

The White Sox have called up their top pitching prospect and first round pick from 2007 Aaron Poreda from Double-A. It was Poreda himself who first broke the news, writing the following on his Facebook page:
This is the biggest day of my life... I'm goin to Chicago, the big leagues, and I ain't never goin back!!!!!
Poreda is a large left-handed pitcher who was having a great year in Double-A with a 2.16 ERA and 63 strikeouts in 58 innings for the White Sox affiliate. On a less positive note he also allowed 32 walks over that span and has never thrown a pitch in Triple-A or the majors before.
What his role will be on the White Sox is still unclear; he will either take the fifth spot in the rotation from Bartolo Colon or be assigned to a bullpen role. He should only be considered in deep AL-Only leagues and only in those leagues if he does indeed start.

Brad Lidge has been placed on the DL. His replacement will be Ryan Madson, who needs to be picked up in all league formats if he's unowned. I talked about the risks of Lidge here a few days before Buy on the Rumor went live, so hopefully some of you read back and stashed Madson.
