    • Rodon underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder Wednesday, and is expected to miss 6-to-8 months while recovering from the injury, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. Although significant bursitis was found, this was a relatively good outcome for Rodon, as both the biceps and labrum didn't need any repair. Looking ahead to next season, the club stated that he could be ready for action as soon as Opening Day, or as late as June 1. It will likely be closer to the latter, but a better sense of a timetable should become present as we approach the start of the 2018 season.

    • White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Surgery remains possible
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rodon and the White Sox are still trying to determine whether he will have surgery on his left (throwing) shoulder, Scott Merkin of reports. The southpaw was shut down for the season earlier in September and has not thrown since. Rodon's offseason recovery will determine how aggressively fantasy players should pursue him in 2018 drafts, though we're seemingly a long way from finding out the specifics about his timetable.

    • Rodon (shoulder) received a second opinion Monday and nothing new was discovered, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports. The lefty has been ruled out for the year, but the latest news is positive as it's been confirmed that Rodon is merely dealing with inflammation in his shoulder. He missed the start of the season with shoulder bursitis, but with a full offseason of rest, Rodon will hopefully be at full strength for the start of spring training. Dylan Covey has taken over for Rodon in the White Sox's starting rotation.

    • White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Shut down for season
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rodon (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list Friday and will not pitch again in 2017. The official diagnosis was shoulder inflammation. The plan is for Rodon to undergo further examination next week, likely an MRI, the results of which will determine his rehabilitation plan over the offseason. Rodon only managed to make 12 starts this year with a 4.15 ERA, but he flashed nasty stuff as he struck out 76 batters over just 69.1 innings.

    • Rodon was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday with left shoulder stiffness, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. The announcement was made just 15 minutes prior to first pitch, with Mike Pelfrey tabbed as Rodon's replacement. This is certainly a troubling development, as Rodon missed the first three months of the season with left shoulder bursitis, but at this point it's uncertain if he will miss additional time.
