$7.28 million for 4 years is alot of money for a high school kid. He has been compared to a younger Verlander. He better be to earn that coin he is making.

If I'm not mistaking Miller signed for 9 million... Porchello has been directly compared to Verlander and Liriano, and is allegedly better than Miller... IMO that was money well spent. I wish we could have inked the kid for more years actually, by the time he gets into the league and pitching well he'll be due for a new contract for $7-10 mill a year if he pans out. Kudos to Dombrowski for getting it a deal done...

I agree about the length of the contract, because by the time he makes it to the big club, he will only have 2-3 years left on the deal.
