Personally, I would be thrilled to get Porcello and a move to the NL may put him back on track to the stardom we thought he'd achieve already. Still just 23, I maintain that Porcello will be an all-star one day

 

"He set career highs in both strikeout rate and ground ball rate in 2012," Cameron wrote, "but even more encouragingly, his velocity jumped nearly 2 mph, and he was regularly topping out at 95 for the first time as a big leaguer."

Porcello would be great. Any idea what the Tigers want for him?

Porcello is kind of an odd-contract situation. Remember, he was given a Major League deal out of high-school; a contract which ran it's course in 2012. I believe he is "Super-Two" arby eligible now which means he'll have arby years through 2015. He's estimated to earn around 4.5 million in 2013.

 

I would bet Porcello would require a young pitcher in return when taking the Tigers current system into account. I'm not sure I'd ante up a Peralta or Thornburg for him, but he might be able to be had with a Jungmann-type.
