And how on earth is Poreda looking like a middle reliever?
Porcello is, at least, a year away.

Poreda will probably pitch in Chicago this year, but it will be as a middle reliever because he only has one pitch. His slider has potential, but will never have a curve and with that arm slot will have almost no chance of producing a servicable change. That sound a lot like Thornton.
