Aaron Poreda still is one of the White Sox’ best young pitchers, and the 22-year-old lefty is likely to get a shot to start as early as next season. For now Poreda is pitching long relief, but he has issued 5 walks in 5 innings over his last 3 outings. Manager Ozzie Guillen puts up with plenty of flaws, but walks aren’t one of them. That’s why he didn’t call on Poreda to face the Orioles on Friday in a tight game.
“The perfect guy in that (sixth) inning last night was Poreda, but I didn’t feel comfortable putting that kid in that situation with the game on the line,” Guillen said. “I wish I had a little more confidence in Poreda, not because he’s bad, just because he’s a kid.”
