Rodon (7-10) was beaten up for six runs on eight hits and a walk over just four innings in Monday's loss to the Royals. Just to put in perspective how bad Rodon was, he threw 96 pitches in his four-plus frames -- only 10 fewer than opposing starter Yordano Ventura tossed while posting a complete-game win on the other end. It was the fifth inning when the wheels really came off for the second-year lefty, who gave up an RBI single and then a three-run homer to end his day. After a red-hot run, the 2014 No. 3 overall pick has given up six runs in two straight outings. He'll look to turn it around Sunday against the Indians, but they were responsible for his other six-run game last week.
Rodon (7-9) gave up six runs on nine hits and three walks over five innings in Wednesday's loss to Cleveland. The second-year lefty had been on a hot streak, winning four straight and giving up two or fewer runs in six of seven starts, but surprisingly ran afoul of an Indians team against which he'd previously experienced great success. Rodon's made definite strides with his formerly shaky control this year, though, and if he can get enough for that .336 BABIP to come down, he should push his ERA back down into the threes; Wednesday's outing pushed it up to 4.04.
Rodon (7-8) allowed one earned run on six hits over six innings Friday. He struck out nine and walked two. Rodon has now posted an impressive run of seven consecutive quality starts and is firmly entrenched in the middle of the White Sox rotation. For the season, he has a 3.80 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 138 strikeouts across 142 innings.
Rodon (6-8) allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits, struck out five and walked on over seven innings in a victory over the Twins on Friday. This was the first time since July 31 that Rodon allowed more than two runs in a start. Even still, the left-hander is 4-0 with a 1.91 ERA over his last six outings. This recent success has improved his season totals to a 6-8 record, 3.90 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 128 strikeouts in 136.0 innings. He will look to keep it going against the Royals next Friday.
Rodon (5-8) allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings to earn the win Sunday against the Mariners. Rodon's been on fire this month, as he's allowed just five runs over his five outings, lowering his ERA from 4.67 to 3.91. Despite the run of good success, he'll need a strong finish to the season to improve upon the 3.75 ERA he put up as a rookie in 2015. He'll make his next start Friday against the Twins.
