White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Sharp in spring debut

Rodon allowed one hit and one walk while striking out five over four scoreless innings in Sunday's game against the Angels, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Rodon, who was making his first spring start, threw 65 pitches (38 for strikes) and then tossed another 10 in the bullpen after leaving the game. He'll get two more Cactus League starts before the regular season, which should get him up to the six-inning, 85-pitch range. The team's goal for the left-hander this season is to throw 200 innings, but in order to do that, he'll need to become more efficient. He averaged 5.9 innings and 100 pitches per start in 2016.
