Rumors and Controversy/Scandal
There are no rumors and scandals about Rick Porcello.
Porcello graduated from Seton Hall Preparatory School in West Orange, New Jersey in 2007. In his senior season, he compiled a 10–0 record with 103 strikeouts and a 1.44 ERA in 63 innings pitched. He threw a perfect game on May 12, 2007, against Newark Academy.
Although Porcello signed a letter of intent to attend the University of North Carolina, he later declined in order to pursue his professional career in Major League Baseball. Porcello was drafted 27th overall in the first round of the 2007 Major League Baseball draft by the Tigers. His choice of sports agent Scott Boras to advise him may have scared away some teams, knocking him down to the 27th spot even though he was ranked No. 1 among high school prospects entering the draft. Porcello had been described as an “ace” who could be a “bona fide No. 1 starter.”
He was also known as a “special” pitcher. Porcello was signed by the Detroit Tigers to a $7.28 million, four-year deal with two one-year options. The total contract is worth $11.1 million, making Porcello the highest-paid high schooler ever. He also received a $3.5 million signing bonus, the second-largest ever given out by the Tigers, surpassed only by the $3.55 million given to 2006 first-round pick Andrew Miller.
Minor league career
Porcello played the entire 2008 season with the Lakeland Flying Tigers of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League. He earned his first victory against the Tampa Yankees on April 3, 2008. On May 12, he was named the Florida State League Pitcher of the Week. On July 19, he took part in a seven-inning combined no-hitter against the St. Lucie Mets. Porcello finished the season with a record of 8–6 in 125 innings pitched. His 2.66 ERA was the lowest in the FSL.
Porcello is a groundball pitcher who relies on a sinking two-seam fastball. He throws his two-seamer about half the time, ranging around 90 mph. Porcello also has a four-seam fastball in the 91–93 range (tops out at 94–95 mph) and a circle changeup in the low 80s which is used mostly on left-handed hitters. He used to throw an occasional slider, but scrapped it prior to the 2013 season for a more effective upper-70s curveball.
Porcello’s former pitching coach Jeff Jones for the Tigers describes the curve as a “change of pace, something that he can throw as a first pitch to a left-handed hitter for a strike.” Porcello’s groundball rate in 2013 was 55.3%, the highest of his career and one of the best in the majors, while his flyball rate was only 23.7%.
