And how on earth is Poreda looking like a middle reliever?
Porcello is expected to make his pro debut at the end of the upcoming season.
I've yet to read a scouting report on Poreda that doesn't mention he's significantly more likely to end up in a bullpen than in a rotation. If you have one, I'd be willing to take it into consideration. But even things I read on the Sox website mention this. Heck, even Kenny has said it.
