Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Strikes out 10 in loss
Rodon (3-6) took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on six hits over 6.2 innings against the Pirates. He struck out 10.
It was a strong outing from Rodon, who set a new season high with 10 strikeouts while pitching into the seventh inning for the first time this year. However, he was stuck with the loss, as the Yankees offense couldn't provide enough run support in the 3-2 defeat. Rodon's now struck out 19 over 11.2 innings in his last two starts, allowing four runs in that span. He'll carry a 5.90 ERA into his next outing, currently scheduled as a home matchup with the Diamondbacks.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Fans nine in third win
Rodon (3-5) picked up the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, allowing one run on four hits and four walks over five innings. He struck out nine.
The nine strikeouts were a season high for the veteran southpaw, who generated 16 swinging strikes among his 93 pitches. Rodon also walked more than two batters for the first time since Aug. 1 though, and he served up at least one homer for the seventh straight outing, in this case the first career long ball for rookie Ceddanne Rafaela. Since returning to the rotation in late August after recovering from a hamstring issue, Rodon has a 4.81 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 25:7 K:BB through 24.1 innings, numbers which represent a marginal improvement on his performance through his first six starts as a Yankee. He'll try to build on this performance when he next takes the mound, which is likely to happen this weekend in Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Destroyed by Detroit
Rodon (2-5) took the loss Thursday, allowing seven runs on eight hits over 3.2 innings in a 10-3 loss to Detroit. He struck out four without issuing any walks.
The 30-year-old spotted the Tigers a two-run lead before registering an out Thursday, allowing a leadoff double to Matt Vierling before Spencer Torkelson hit a wall-scraping homer to right field. Rodon surrendered five more runs across the third and fourth frames, resulting in an early exit with a season-high seven runs charged to his line. After back-to-back campaigns with a sub-3.00 ERA, the southpaw has endured a tumultuous and abbreviated first season in New York, compiling a 2-5 record with an unsightly 6.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and a disappointing 1.95 K/BB ratio across 10 starts (46.1 innings). Rodon will look to get back on track in his next outing, tentatively scheduled to take place in Boston early next week.... See More ... See Less

Rodon (2-4) pitched five innings Friday, surrendering two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out four batters on his way to a win in a 6-2 victory over the Astros.
Rodon put together another strong start, allowing two or fewer runs for the third straight outing. He gave up a solo homer to Jose Abreu in the bottom of the second inning, and then an RBI double by Kyle Tucker in the third accounted for the final run on the left-hander's line. Since Aug. 22, Rodon has posted a 2.87 ERA over 15.2 innings in three starts.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Strikes out seven Sunday
Rodon did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven in 4.2 innings against the Rays.
The Rays piled on two runs versus Rodon in the first inning via a solo home run by Brandon Lowe and an error. The left-hander went on to retire 11 straight batters but got himself into trouble in the fifth with two walks and was pulled in favor of Ian Hamilton after 84 pitches. Rodon registered a season-high seven strikeouts and allowed only two hard-hit balls but failed to reach five innings for the third time in his last four starts. The 30-year-old now owns a 5.97 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 33:20 K:BB in 37.2 innings. He went winless in August and will look to change his fortunes in a matchup against the Astros his next time out....

Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Sharp in return
Rodon did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run on six hits over six innings against the Nationals. He struck out one.
Rodon pitched well in his return from the IL while making it through six innings for the first time this season. Through seven starts (33 innings) this season, Rodon is 1-4 with a 6.27 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 26:18 K:BB. He'll look to build on Tuesday's outing in his next start, tentatively scheduled for this weekend in Tampa Bay.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Activated for Tuesday's start
Rodon (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day injured list Tuesday.
The left-hander is set to rejoin the Yankees' rotation Tuesday versus the Nationals after spending the minimum 15 days on the IL with a strained left hamstring. Rodon did not make a rehab start, instead opting for a five-inning simulated game. Given how poorly he was pitching before the injury and perhaps less than a full workload on the docket, fantasy managers would be wise to keep Rodon benched for now, if possible.... See More ...

Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Set to return Tuesday
Rodon (hamstring) will return from the 15-day injured list to start Tuesday against the Nationals, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Rodon had no lingering issues after a five-inning simulated game Wednesday and will jump back into action Aug. 22, exactly 15 days removed from his placement on the IL due to a left hamstring strain. The 30-year-old left-hander has thrown only 27 innings this season and carries a 7.33 ERA, and Washington could be a tough matchup for him -- the Nationals are seventh this season in wOBA against left-handed pitching, and third in strikeout rate....

Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Throws five-inning sim game
Rodon (hamstring) threw a five-inning simulated game Wednesday in Tampa, Max Goodman of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
As long as he responds well to the workout with no renewed discomfort, Rodon should be able to slot back into the Yankees' starting rotation next Tuesday against the Nationals. He's been on the 15-day injured list since Aug. 7 with a left hamstring strain after also missing the first three months of the 2023 campaign because of forearm and back problems.... See More ...

Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Slated to face hitters
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Rodon (hamstring) will face hitters during a simulated game later this week, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.
Rodon reportedly looked good in a bullpen session Saturday, and he will travel to Tampa to begin the next stage of his rehab process after the Yankees finish their series in Miami. If all goes according to plan, Rodon should be able to return immediately once he's eligible Aug. 22.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Throws from flat ground
Rodon (hamstring) threw from flat ground Wednesday, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.
Rodon was placed on the IL on Monday due to a low-grade left hamstring strain, but the Yankees indicated at the time that he would continue throwing. That plan has come to fruition, as the left-hander played catch Wednesday in Chicago. The initial indication is that Rodon could need just a minimum stay on the injured list, which would put hit in line to return for a home series against Washington that begins Aug. 22....

Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Will continue throwing while on IL
Rodon (hamstring) will continue to throw on flat ground in hopes that he will need only a minimum 15-day stay on the injured list, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.
Rodon is dealing with a low-grade left hamstring strain and wanted to pitch through the injury, according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone. However, the team decided to exercise caution and go ahead and IL him. Rodon has struggled mightily this season, posting a 7.33 ERA with 25:18 K:BB in 27 innings since coming back from forearm and back injuries.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Hits IL with hamstring strain
The Yankees placed Rodon on the 15-day injured list Monday after he was diagnosed with a left hamstring strain following an MRI.
Rodon had hoped to avoid a stint on the IL after he exited his start in Sunday's loss to the Astros in the third inning with what the Yankees had labeled as a left hamstring tightness, but follow-up tests determined he was dealing with a muscular tear. The veteran southpaw is headed to the IL for the second time this season, after he began the campaign on the shelf while recovering from forearm and back injuries before making his Yankees debut July 7. A timeline for Rodon's return hasn't yet been established, but his upcoming absence likely solidifies the struggling Luis Severino's spot in the rotation after Yankees manager Aaron Boone had previously been non-committal about Severino's role moving forward....

Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Suffering from hamstring tightness
The Yankees announced that Rodon was removed from his start Sunday against the Astros due to left hamstring tightness. He was charged with five earned runs on three hits and two walks and struck out five over 2.2 innings prior to departing.
After being visited by a trainer on the mound to have his leg checked out, Rodon pled his case to stay in the game, but the Yankees ultimately called an early end to what had been a rough outing even before the injury cropped up. Though an initial diagnosis for his injury has been provided, Rodon will be examined over the next 24 hours before the Yankees offer up an updated timeline for when the southpaw might be ready to pitch again. If Rodon is unable to make his next turn through the rotation next weekend in Miami and is forced to the injured list, Luis Severino would likely stick around as a starter after manager Aaron Boone was previously non-committal regarding Severino's role moving forward. The Yankees could also turn to Jhony Brito to replace Rodon in the rotation, if needed.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Slated for MRI
Rodon (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Monday, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.
Rodon was removed from Sunday's start against the Astros due to left hamstring tightness, and the Yankees aren't yet sure whether he'll require a trip to the injured list. He described his exit as precautionary, but his imaging should help offer clarity on the severity of the injury, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the team update his status afterward. If Rodon is unable to make his next turn through the rotation, Luis Severino is a strong candidate to remain a starter.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Pulled with injury
Rodon was removed during the third inning of Sunday's start against the Astros with an apparent leg injury, David Lennon of Newsday reports.
Rodon endured a rough day even prior to the injury, as Houston tagged him for five runs on three hits -- including a pair of home runs -- and two walks in 2.2 innings. The specifics of the 30-year-old's injury are unclear, leaving his availability for the next turn through the rotation up in the air.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Falls to Tampa Bay
Rodon (1-4) took the loss Tuesday, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks over four innings against the Rays. He struck out five.
After Rodon surrendered a run in the second inning, Yandy Diaz led off the third with a solo homer before Randy Arozarena tacked on a two-run blast later in the frame. It's the third time through his first five outings that Rodon has allowed four or more runs. The 30-year-old southpaw's ERA is up to 6.29 with a 1.48 WHIP and 20:16 K:BB through his first 24.1 innings with the Yankees. Rodon will look to get on track in his next outing, currently scheduled for this weekend against Houston.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Nabs first win as Yankee
Rodon (1-3) earned the win over the Mets on Wednesday, allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out four batters over 5.2 innings.
Rodon logged his longest outing of the campaign, notching one more out than he did in his season debut against the Cubs on July 7. The left-hander continued to struggle with his control -- he's walked multiple batters in each of his four starts and has 12 walks across 20.1 innings on the campaign -- but Rodon held the Mets to just one extra-base hit and one run. He appears to still be trying to find his groove, having managed just a 6.7 K/9 after posting a 12.2 K/9 over his previous two campaigns combined. Nonetheless, Wednesday's win was a step in the right direction given that Rodon had dropped each of his first three starts.... See More ... See Less
