Rick Porcello has been one of the most successful pitchers of his generation. Porcello currently plays for the New York Mets. He originally debuted as a much-hyped prospect with the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers selected him 27th overall in the 2007 MLB Draft and signed him to a contract for $11.1 million, which was the highest amount ever awarded to a high school player. Porcello did not disappoint in his 2009 debut, going 14-9 with a 3.96 ERA and finishing third in voting for the American League Rookie of the Year.
During six seasons in Detroit, Porcello won at least ten games each season. After a banner 2014 season where he went 15-13 with 129 strikeouts and a 3.43 ERA, he was traded to the Boston Red Sox. Porcello went to new heights in 2016, leading baseball with 22 wins while posting a 3.15 ERA. He won the AL Cy Young and was named AL Comeback Player of the Year. Two seasons later, Porcello won 17 games during the regular season and helped the Red Sox win the World Series.
