Rodon (0-2) allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over 6.1 innings in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Cleveland. Rodon had a bout of wildness in the second inning when he gave up all four runs. He walked two, hit a batter and allowed a run on a wild pitch. Other than that, he was good. He retired 11 of the final 12 batters faced and pitched into the seventh inning for the first time in three starts. He'll get his second start of the week Sunday at home against the A's.
Rodon tossed five innings Thursday, yielding two runs on three walks and two hits while striking out four in a 5-2 loss to Cleveland. Rodon allowed a leadoff shot to Francisco Lindor, but settled down after that. In his two starts since coming back from the DL, the lefty is 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA and a 11:5 K:BB ratio in 10 innings. Rodon should get another look at Cleveland early next week.
Rodon (0-1) took the loss Saturday as the White Sox fell 4-2 to the Red Sox, allowing four runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks over five innings while striking out seven. The left-hander threw 63 of 97 pitches for strikes in his season debut, generating 15 swinging strikes, but some shoddy defense behind him and a pair of homers by Jackie Bradley and J.D. Martinez sent Rodon down to defeat. It doesn't look like the White Sox plan to limit his workload now that he's fully recovered from last September's shoulder surgery, putting Rodon on track to make his second start of the year Thursday at home against Cleveland.
Rodon (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list Saturday. Rodon is slated to make his first start of the season against Boston after being transferred to the 60-day disabled list April 12. Through three rehab starts at Triple-A Charlotte, he posted a 1.42 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with a 22:5 K:BB across 12.2 innings. Rodon will be tasked with a tough assignment, as he makes his season debut against a stacked Red Sox lineup.
Rodon (shoulder) appears likely to return from the 60-day disabled list to start Saturday's game against the Red Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. After throwing 92 pitches in his final rehab outing Sunday for Triple-A Charlotte, Rodon was on track to make his season debut for the White Sox at some point during the weekend series in Boston, but it wasn't immediately clear which day he would pitch. With the White Sox now listing Dylan Covey and Reynaldo Lopez as their probable starters for Friday and Sunday, respectively, it appears safe to conclude that Rodon will be on the rubber for the middle contest of the three-game set. Rodon will likely oppose David Price in the matchup and shouldn't face any restrictions.
