It's rare that a rookie pitcher with big league hype actually lives up to his high billing. But that's the kind of pitcher Rick Porcello is.
Since being drafted 27th in the 2007 draft by the Detroit Tigers everyone has expected big things out of Porcello. He delivered in 2009 by going 14-9 with 3.96 ERA and finishing 3rd in the AL Rookie of the Year voting.
Porcello has hand signed this MLB baseball which comes complete with a Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity.
