Ozzie on Aaron Poreda:

"If it was my decision, believe me, I would bring him up here right away,'' Guillen said. Poreda is a 21-year-old starting pitcher selected by the Sox on the first round of last year's amateur draft. Facing a team of the Colorado Rockies' top prospects Monday, the 6-foot-6, 240-pound lefty wowed Guillen while pitching 2 scoreless innings. Poreda didn't allow a hit while striking out three and walking one. "That's a real No. 1 (starter),'' Guillen said. "You will see him here pretty soon. Hopefully he stays healthy.'' Poreda, a University of San Francisco product, pitched for Advanced Rookie Great Falls last year after signing with the White Sox. He was 4-0 with a 1.17 ERA in 12 games (8 starts) and has quickly emerged as the Sox' No. 1 prospect. "This kid's got a good arm and it's exciting to see him pitch,'' Guillen said. "He might pitch in a (Cactus League) game if we need it to get his feet wet a little bit, see how he feels.''
