Former Campolindo star pitcher Aaron Poreda thought his dream came true in 2007 when the Chicago White Sox selected him with the 25th pick in the first round of the Major League Baseball Draft. Poreda had to earn his place on the major league team by heading off to the minor leagues first.
After showing his solid skill set as a pitcher during his minor league stint, the White Sox recently called him up to the major league team.
On June 12, Poreda made his first appearance for the White Sox, giving up only one hit in 1.2 inning against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Poreda has now made a total of five relief appearances, allowing only four hits in five innings, while managing to strike out six batters. Poreda has more wins (one) than runs allowed (zero).
