Chicago White SoxEdit
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.
Poreda was called up to the majors for the first time on June 9, 2009. 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.
