Professional career[]

Chicago White Sox[]

Poreda was drafted by the Chicago White Sox 25th overall in the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft. On May 21, 2009 the San Diego Padres struck a 4-for-1 deal with the White Sox for Jake Peavy, which reportedly included Poreda and Chicago's other top pitching prospect, Clayton Richard. Peavy, however, invoked his no-trade clause to block the trade.[1]

Poreda was called up to the majors for the first time on June 9, 2009.[2] On June 12, 2009 he made his debut against the Milwaukee Brewers. Poreda picked up his first career win on June 26, 2009, after pitching a perfect 13th in the Sox' extra-innings win over the Los Angeles Dodgers[3].

San Diego Padres[]

On July 31, 2009 Poreda along with Clayton Richard, Adam Russell and Dexter Carter were traded to the San Diego Padres for Jake Peavy.[4]
