Rodon (0-2) allowed a run on two hits in a third of an inning and was credited with Thursday's loss to Cleveland. Rodon, who was activated from the injured list earlier in the day, was used at a crucial spot in the game. Jimmy Cordero left with the bases loaded and two out in the seventh inning, and Rodon was tasked with getting the final out. Making his first appearance since Aug. 3, Rodon gave up a two-run single and two-run double. He's expected to pitch out of the bullpen for the White Sox in the postseason, and this looked like an audition for a key setup role.
Rodon (shoulder) was reinstated from the 45-day injured list prior to Thursday's game against Cleveland. He last pitched Aug. 3 -- one of only two appearances for the southpaw this season. It's encouraging that Rodon's shoulder is healthy enough for him to be activated, but it is unclear exactly what his role will be down the stretch and into the postseason. He could get a brief audition as a long reliever over the final four games, and could make the postseason roster in that capacity.
Rodon (shoulder) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Sunday. This doesn't officially end his season, as he last pitched Aug. 3. He is scheduled to throw off a mound Monday. That said, Rodon's health has been an issue for a long time and he hasn't had much success when he has pitched in games in recent years. Prospect Jonathan Stiever enters the rotation Sunday.
Rodon (shoulder) is scheduled to throw off a mound Monday, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports. The 27-year-old was scheduled to throw a 60-pitch bullpen session last week, but those plans were scrapped after he began experiencing shoulder discomfort. Rodon may not have enough time to get stretched out to a starter's workload by the end of the season, but the White Sox could shift him to the bullpen to expedite his return.
Rodon (shoulder) was experiencing discomfort Friday and didn't throw his scheduled 60-pitch bullpen, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. Rodon has been ramping up his workload and appeared to be near a return, but his timetable became murkier following his recent setback. The team will monitor his status in the coming days to determine when he can return to the mound.
