White Sox top pitching prospect Aaron Poreda has just been called up from Birmingham to replace Bartolo Colon, who went on the 15-day DL with inflammation in his left knee. The 22-year old southpaw was 5-4 with a 2.39 ERA and 69 Ks in 64 innings with Birmingham this season. Mazel tov, Aaron!
Kevin Youkilis was 2-4 with 1 BB and 1 run scored against the Yankees. Also swiped his 3rd bag of the season.
Ryan Braun was 1-4 with 1 double against the Rockies.
Ian Kinsler was 0-4 against the Blue Jays.
Josh Whitesell is starting to heat up. He followed up his 1st career multi-hit game yesterday with his 2nd multi-hit game today. He was 2-3 with 1 BB and 1 double against the Giants.
I'd also like to congratulate my brother's teammate, Tyler Kehrer, on getting drafted 48th overall by the Angels.
