Rondon went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Oakland.
Rondon started at shortstop Sunday and knocked in a run for the third consecutive game. Leury Garcia has been the primary fill-in for the injured Tim Anderson (ankle) at short, but Rondon will see an occasional start until Anderson is ready to return.
Rondon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Rondon will be on the bench for the third time in four games after it appeared earlier in the week that he might take over as the White Sox's primary designated hitter following the release of Yonder Alonso. With Rondon batting just .159 since the beginning of June, however, manager Rick Renteria may be more inclined to simply rotate a number of options at DH rather than having one player handle the job.
Rondon went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's loss to the Tigers.
Rondon hit his third homer of the season in the fourth inning off Matthew Boyd. His season slash line still sits at an ugly .195/.267/.293 in 46 games.
Rondon will start at second base and bat seventh Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Rondon will fill in for an ailing Yolmer Sanchez (illness) for the third straight game. Along with Sanchez, Tim Anderson (ankle) will be on the bench, leaving the White Sox with little depth in the middle infield. The team is expected to place Anderson on the 10-day injured list Friday, potentially creating more opportunities for Rondon and Leury Garcia to see work at shortstop.
Rondon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.
Rondon manned the hot corner in each of the past four games, but he'll be back on the bench Sunday with everyday third baseman Yoan Moncada (back) gaining clearance to return. While Moncada was sidelined, Rondon went 3-for-13 with a pair of walks.
Rondon made a second straight start at third base and went 0-for-3 with a walk in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Yankees.
Rondon is filling in at third base for the injured Yoan Moncada (back), who hopes to return over the weekend. Rondon is a utility piece for the White Sox and is approaching a career high in plate appearances, although his .200 batting average makes him less than desirable.
Rondon started at designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in the White Sox's 2-0 win over the Royals.
Rondon filled in for the left-handed-hitting Yonder Alonso against a right-hander, and there's reason to believe the switch could be longer than a one-day break. Manager Rick Renteria spoke to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times about the change Saturday. "Let's see if we can give [Alonso] a mental respite, so to speak," Renteria said. "He didn't ask for it. But I think sometimes you have to look at your guys and make a decision, and right now I'm going to let Jose [Rondon] take that slot." That sounds like Renteria is moving on from Alonso as an everyday regular at this time.
Rondon started at shortstop Saturday in place of the injured Tim Anderson (wrist). He went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in an 8-1 loss to the Twins.
Anderson was a late scratch after taking a pitch off his wrist during Friday's game. "He was just sore," manager Rick Rentera told Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times. "He tried to hit [Saturday morning] and said his wrist was too sore from the blow. So we decided to scratch him. He'll get treated up and we'll try to get him in the lineup as soon as possible." Rondon has one hit and six strikeouts in his last 17 at-bats, a stretch that's dropped his average to .203.
Rondon replaced an injured Leury Garcia (back) in center field during Sunday's 5-1 win over Toronto. He went 1-for-3.
The White Sox made Nicky Delmonico (shoulder) a late scratch before losing Garcia in the fourth inning. That leaves Chicago thin in the outfield, which could lead to a start Monday against the Indians for Rondon.
Rondon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.
Rondon started each of the first three games of the series, going 2-for-12 with a double, a run and an RBI. The Red Sox deployed lefty starting pitchers for each of those three contests, so Rondon still appears to be locked into a short-side platoon role at second base with Yolmer Sanchez.
Rondon started in left field in place of the injured Eloy Jimenez (ankle) on Sunday. He went 0-for-3 in a 4-1 win over the Tigers.
Rondon got the start against the left-handed Matthew Boyd and will likely platoon in left field with Nicky Delmonico as the left-handed-hitting complement to Rondon. The 26-year-old Rondon is batting .400 (8-for-20) against southpaws but just .118 (2-for-17) against right-handers.
Rondon played shortstop and third base and went 2-for-2 in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Kansas City.
Rondon came off the bench when shortstop Tim Anderson was tossed for his role in a bench-clearing brawl. Rondon later moved to third base when Yoan Moncada was removed after taking a throw off his helmet.
Rondon went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in a 5-1 loss to the Rays on Monday.
This was the 25-year-old's first multi-hit game of the season, and he now has hits in four straight games. Considering Rondon has only played in five contests, that's pretty good production. He is 5-for-20 (.250) with three extra-base hits, two RBI and three runs in five games this season.
Rondon will start at second base and hit second in Sunday's game against the Mariners.
Rondon will substitute in for top second baseman Yolmer Sanchez for the second time in the series and could see the bulk of the action at the keystone when the White Sox face left-handed pitching, like they will Sunday with southpaw Wade LeBlanc twirling for the Mariners. Sanchez is a switch hitter but owns a career .224/.270/.320 batting line (60 wRC+) versus lefties.
Rondon started at second base and went 1-for-3 with a double in Friday's 10-8 win over the Mariners.
Manager Rick Renteria sat Yolmer Sanchez, who had started the first five games at second base, in favor of Rondon in the White Sox' home opener. Sanchez, who made an appearance as a pinch hitter and finished the game at second, is 1-for-21 through six games. Rondon isn't hitting much better (2-for-12), but it looks like he'll get a chance to usurp the starting job from Sanchez.
Rondon is starting at shortstop and batting seventh Wednesday against Cleveland.
Rondon is getting the start in place of everyday shortstop Tim Anderson, who is away from the team on paternity leave. Rondon also got the start Monday, going hittless while striking out three times. Anderson is expected to return to the team for Thursday's home opener against the Mariners, so Rondon will return to the utility role off the bench.
Rondon started at shortstop in place of Tim Anderson (personal) and went 0-for-4 with a run scored and three strikeouts in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Indians.
Rondon, who hadn't played during the first three games, was originally set to play second base in place of Yolmer Sanchez but slid to short when Anderson was scratched. He showed some pop last year, homering 24 times between Triple-A and the majors, and Rodon could unseat Sanchez if that type of contact continues.
Rondon will break camp with the White Sox, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Rondon, who is out of minor-league options, earned a spot on the strength of his versatility and strong bat. He expanded his resume during spring training by adding left field to his skill set.
Rondon played left field in a "B" game Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Rondon also played outfield in Venezuela over the winter, adding to his portfolio of positions. He's been exposed to all four infield positions and is expected to make the Opening Day roster due to his versatility. He showed off a power bat last season when he hit 24 home runs between the minors (18 in 80 games) and majors (six in 42).
Rondon is spending time in the outfield this spring in hopes of opening up more paths to playing time, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Rondon played some left field in winter ball but has yet to play the outfield in a major-league game. He's a good bet to make the roster as the team's top backup infielder but will likely be stuck on the bench for most games. Adding outfield flexibility would certainly help him, as the White Sox are short on proven outfielders.
