Rodon (shoulder) will not pitch any spring training games, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Rodon is throwing off flat ground -- recently moving out to 90 feet -- with all signs suggesting the left-hander is progressing nicely, according to Chicago general manager Rick Hahn. He'll likely throw in a competitive environment during extended spring training, followed by a rehabilitation assignment, and then an early-June return to the major leagues.
Rodon (shoulder) has been throwing from 90 feet without discomfort, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.
Rodon isn't yet throwing with full intensity, but the lack of discomfort is an encouraging sign. It seems that the White Sox are following through with their plan to take things slowly with Rodon. He likely won't be pitching until early June.
Rodon (shoulder) may not return until June, per general manager Rick Hahn, Richard Justice of MLB.com reports. "This is more about getting him healthy for the long term rather than an extra two or three starts in April or May of 2018," Hahn said. "I'm guessing it's going to be closer to June 1, but until he's actually throwing in games, it's still speculative."
Rodon, who underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery in September, has initiated a throwing program with hopes of joining the rotation at some point during the first half of the season. Initial reports speculated a possible April or May return, but Hahn's comments introduce doubts about that timeline.
Rodon (shoulder) was able to throw on back-to-back days, marking the first time since he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder in September, Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald reports.
Rodon continues to make positive stride although it remains likely that the southpaw will miss a little time at the beginning of the season. There should be a more concrete timetable in the near future, but as of late January, pitching coach Don Cooper said that he wasn't anticipating Rodon being ready until a few weeks into the season, at the earliest, according to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune. More should be known in the coming weeks once he's able to ramp up his activity.
Rodon (shoulder) received approval to resume throwing next week, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Rodon had a follow-up appointment Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Thursday, and earned clearance to get back to throwing for the first time since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder in late September. Pitching coach Don Cooper admitted that Rodon will likely miss some time at the beginning of the season, but more should be known once he's able to get back into the swing of things. Expect an update on his status around the start of spring training.
