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.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Walks five in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (1-2) allowed four runs on eight hits with nine strikeouts and five walks across 4.2 innings during a loss to the Rays on Monday.

The 26-year-old threw more than 55.0 percent strikes, which actually isn't a horrible number, and induced 20 swinging strikes. However, he started behind in the count too often. Rodon only threw a first-pitch strike to 13 of the 27 batters he faced. He walked one batter in each of his first two outings this season, but walks were an issue last season for Rodon. The lefty is 1-2 with a 3.38 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 24 strikeouts in 16 innings this season. Hopefully he can re-find his control in his next probable start against the Yankees.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Retires 12 straight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (1-1) allowed one unearned run on two hits while striking out nine and walking just one across six innings to earn a victory against the Indians on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old featured his great stuff at Progressive Field on Wednesday, inducing 16 swinging strikes. Rodon allowed an unearned run in the first and then retired 12 straight batters starting in the second. The Indians only snapped that streak because Jose Ramirez reached on another White Sox error. Rodon is 1-1 with a 1.59 ERA, 15 strikeouts and 0.62 WHIP through two starts this season.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Posts six strikeouts in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (0-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits in 5.1 innings during a 5-3 loss to the Royals on Opening Day. He struck out six and walked one in the loss.

The Royals scratched out a run in the fourth and then scored a pair in the sixth. Rodon's defense didn't help him out, as the second run in the sixth scored on an error. The White Sox nearly erased a five-run deficit in the ninth to get Rodon off the hook, but they stranded the bases loaded. Rodon has been pretty average over the last three years, but six strikeouts in 5.1 frames is a good sign. The 26-year-old averaged more than a strikeout per inning during his first two MLB seasons (2015 and 2016).

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Makes final spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over two innings Friday against the Angels.

Rodon was expected to throw three innings in what was a planned abbreviated outing, but he didn't have his best command and the appearance was cut back to two innings. His spring ERA fell to 5.65. Next up for the left-hander is his first Opening Day start March 28 against the Royals.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Named Opening Day starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon was named Chicago's Opening Day starter Monday.

Rodon earns the honor despite a mediocre 4.18 ERA last season, a number which hid a poor 4.95 FIP and an even worse 5.40 xFIP. Optimism for the 26-year-old lefty rests in part on a nine-start stretch last summer in which recorded a 1.84 ERA, though he benefited from an unsustainable .175 BABIP over that run. Even if he doesn't reach another level this season, he still could be the best starter on a team which lacks anything close to a true frontline arm.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Makes penultimate spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings Sunday against Arizona.

Rodon was tagged for a pair of solo home runs and didn't have his best stuff, but he extended to 90 pitches, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The left-hander threw more in the bullpen following his departure to get his pitch count up to 100. He'll make one more start before the start of the regular season. Manager Rick Renteria plans to announce his Opening Day starter Monday, and Rodon is the leading candidate.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Rain moves work inside
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon's scheduled start Tuesday was rained out, but he put in his work by throwing to hitters in the batting cages, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Rodon got up and down six times and threw nearly 85 pitches. The left-hander is on schedule to pitch Opening Day, March 28, against the Royals.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Finishes strong Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon allowed one hit and one walk while striking out three over four scoreless innings Thursday against the Brewers.

Rodon survived the first inning, in which he allowed a walk, a double and a hard-hit fly out, then retired the final 10 batters he faced. The left-hander has battled health issues each of the last two seasons, but he enters 2019 in good shape and looks to deliver on the promise that made him the third-overall pick in 2014. He's the leading candidate to start Opening Day on March 28 against Kansas City.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Has one bad inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon allowed three runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two in Saturday's game against Colorado.

Rodon, throwing mostly fastballs and changeups. sandwiched two scoreless innings around a frame in which Pat Valaika blasted a three-run homer. The left-hander was unhappy about giving up the homer but pleased overall, having his fastball hit 93 mph "without max effort," per Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune.
