Poreda called upPosted by Paul Singman at 3:00pm
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.
Paul has been managing fantasy baseball teams for many seasons and writing for THT Fantasy over the past three years. He is currently a student at UPenn welcomes readers' thoughts at his email here or in the comments below.
