White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Throws 45 pitches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) started Saturday's intrasquad game and threw 45 pitches, Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald reports.

The action marked the first time Rodon has thrown off the mound at Guaranteed Rate Field since May 2019. "As far as stuff, the ball feels like it was coming out good," Rodon told Scott Merkin of MLB.com. "Today, it [velocity] was a little down, and the last BP it was coming out really well. Hopefully, this next go around next five days I get that recovery I need, and I step on the mound and it's back." Rodon mentioned a need to get up and down a few more times and try to hit the 90-pitch mark before the start of the season. The left-hander may not be part of the rotation to start the season, but he could pitch multiple innings as a reliever (or opener).

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Says he's close to 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) threw three innings and 45 pitches during a live batting practice session Sunday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Rodon, who underwent Tommy John surgery last May, described himself as close to 100 percent following the session. He threw all of his pitches, including a fastball he termed "electric." Rodon is next scheduled to pitch in an intra-squad game Friday. The left-hander should be ready to hurl for the White Sox during the 2020 season, but he may not have a spot in the rotation right away. The White Sox currently have five healthy starters, so Rodon may have to bounce between the rotation and bullpen.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Could be ready late July
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) should be ready to pitch at some point near the start of the regular season or shortly thereafter, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The White Sox have five set starters ready to throw when MLB's season resumes around July 23 or 24, but they will get an added boost with both Rodon and Michael Kopech coming off Tommy John elbow surgery. Rodon had talked about being ready to pitch by June, so it's likely he'll be contributing at some point. With starters not expected to pitch deep into games initially, both Rodon and Kopech could be used as openers or in piggy-back situations.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Aiming for June return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) said he feels good enough that he could be pitching by June, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Rodon went as far as saying a June return "is realistic," but the left-hander admits getting the White Sox management and medical staff to give him permission would be a sticking point. Original estimates pegged a July return for Rodon, who is in the final stages of rehab from Tommy John surgery. Rodon has been throwing three days per week at the team's spring training complex in Glendale (Ariz.), including bullpen sessions on Mondays and Fridays. That's the same activity he would have been performing even if MLB had started its season on time.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Could return by July
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) could return to active duty by July, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper talked about what looks like a strong starting rotation to open the season, then anticipated the additions of Rodon and Michael Kopech. Cooper expects both pitchers to join the rotation at some point in 2020. Rodon played catch while training camps were open, and Cooper said the left-hander looked better than expected. Rodon underwent Tommy John surgery in May of 2019, so a return during the second half of the season is likely, unless there's a setback.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Making good progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) has exceeded expectations in his rehab process, according to pitching coach Don Cooper, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Rodon underwent Tommy John surgery back in May, which is expected to keep him out until some point in the second half this season. It's unclear if Cooper's comments indicate that he's on a faster timeline than expected, or if he's simply throwing quite well for where he currently is in the process. He threw a side session Monday.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) was able to play catch Wednesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Rodon is expected to miss a fair portion of the upcoming season while he works his way back from Tommy John surgery in May. His expected return date is not yet clear.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Signs without arbitrator
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) agreed to a one-year, $4.45 million deal with the White Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

Rodon made just seven starts last season before undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. The procedure will keep him out for a large portion of the upcoming season.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Reinstated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Thursday.

Rodon underwent Tommy John surgery in May and the southpaw is still expected to be sidelined until late next season. The team just reinstated him to the 40-man roster heading into the offseason, as was required by MLB. In 27 starts over the past two seasons, Rodon posted a 4.40 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Shifts to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

The transaction makes room on the 40-man roster for Jimmy Cordero, who was claimed off waivers from the Mariners in a corresponding move. It has no effect on Rodon's recovery time, as he isn't expected to return until the middle of next season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Has successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon underwent successful Tommy John elbow surgery on Wednesday, Russell Dorsey of MLB.com reports.

Rodon was placed on the injured list following his last start and eventually opted to undergo the surgery. The White Sox expect a full recovery with an estimated return in mid-2020.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Undergoing Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon will undergo Tommy John surgery on Wednesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

A second opinion confirmed the worst fears about Rodon's injury, and he'll finish the season with a 5.19 ERA in seven starts. The procedure carries a recovery time of over a year, so he'll miss the entirety of 2019 and any return in 2020 will likely come late in the season.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Surgery decision coming next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon is expected to decide on a treatment method for his left elbow injury at some point next week, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

After meeting with a doctor last week shortly after he was diagnosed with an edema in the flexor mass of his left elbow, Rodon was recommended to undergo Tommy John surgery to address the matter. The southpaw is set to receive a second opinion in the next few days, after which he should have a better idea of whether surgery and the long rehab that comes with it is the best course of action. A reconstructive procedure would spell an end to Rodon's 2019 campaign and keep him sidelined for the majority of 2020, too.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Tommy John surgery recommended
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (elbow) was recommended to undergo Tommy John surgery in his initial meeting with a doctor, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

This is a tough blow for Rodon and the White Sox, though it's not too surprising after general manager Rick Hahn didn't rule out the possibility while expressing concern regarding the southpaw's elbow injury -- which was originally diagnosed as an edema in the flexor mass in Rodon's throwing arm -- last week. Rodon is awaiting the results of a second opinion before moving forward with a decision.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Concern regarding injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Rick Hahn expressed concern when discussing Rodon's elbow injury, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

Rodon was sent to the injured list Thursday with what was described as an edema in the flexor mass in his throwing arm. While the exact severity of the issue is not yet known, the White Sox are expecting to be without Rodon for a lengthy period of time. "At this point, you can say based simply upon the edema he's going to be down for a little while," Hahn told Scott Merkin of MLB.com. The general manager also didn't rule out the possibility of Tommy John surgery, stating that everything is still on the table until the southpaw is further evaluated. The White Sox may eventually look outside of the organization for a replacement starter, but for now, Dylan Covey is expected to fill in for Rodon in the rotation.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Sent to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with left elbow inflammation.

This comes a day after Rodon was tagged for three runs on five hits and two walks across just 3.2 innings during Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Orioles. The severity of the issue is not yet known; according to James Fegan of The Athletic, the southpaw is scheduled to undergo a variety of additional tests in the coming days. Lucas Giolito (hamstring) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move, while Dylan Covey is set to take Rodon's place in the rotation for the time being.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Lasts only 3.2 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon gave up three runs on five hits and two walks over 3.2 innings during Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Orioles. He struck out six but did not factor in the decision.

Rodon failed to get through four innings for his second straight start, though he was able to limit the damage to three runs Wednesday. The 26-year-old has been up-and-down to begin the season and will carry a 5.19 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 46:17 K:BB into Monday's start at Cleveland.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Shelled by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon allowed eight runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out five over three innings in Friday's no-decision against the Tigers.

Rodon simply didn't have it Friday night, as he surrendered two runs in the first, followed by one in the second, two in the third and three more in the fifth. The 26-year-old's ERA took a significant hit (2.89 to 4.94), especially this early in the season, but his team managed to get him off the hook for the loss by exploding for 12 runs on the night.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Sharp against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (3-2) picked up the win in Friday's 7-3 victory over the Tigers, giving up one run on three hits and three walks over six innings while striking out six.

A solo home run by Josh Harrison was the only blemish on Rodon's line for the evening. The southpaw has produced quality starts in three of his last four outings, and he'll take a 2.89 ERA and impressive 35:12 K:BB through 28 innings into his next trip to the mound Wednesday in Baltimore.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Tosses six strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (2-2) picked up the win after allowing two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings Sunday against the Yankees.

Rodon surrendered a run in the first inning and another in the third, but he managed to settle down and toss three scoreless frames to close out his start. He fired 74 of 112 pitches for strikes and threw first-pitch strikes to 15 of the 23 batters he faced. The 26-year-old has posted a 3.27 ERA with 29 punchouts over 22 innings so far in 2019 and is slated to toe the rubber next against the Tigers on Friday.
