White Sox SP Carlos Rodon strikes out nine in four innings
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) White Sox starting pitcher Carlos Rodon shined in Wednesday's matchup with the Royals, allowing just four hits in four scoreless innings while striking out nine and walking none.
The third overall pick in last June's MLB draft, Rodon made it to Triple-A in his first major-league season while delivering a 2.96 ERA and 38:13 K:BB ratio in 24 1/3 innings across three levels. He's turned in a 3.65 spring ERA in 12 1/3 innings while striking out 19 batters and walking three.
"I feel like I'm close," Rodon said after the outing, per MLB.com. "That's a decision I can't make and that's up to other people. I have to keep doing what I'm doing."
Rodon won't make the rotation out of spring training but could contribute at the major-league level at some point this season.
Carlos Rodon may not win spot in White Sox rotation
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/16/15) White Sox LHP Carlos Rodon , the third overall pick in last year's amateur draft, made his third start of the spring on Monday.
Rodon had a shaky first inning, giving up two runs on a hit, two walks and a hit batter. After allowing a hit to start the second inning, he retired the final six batters he faced, striking out three and lowering his spring ERA to 6.14. He threw 49 pitches, 28 of them strikes, in the outing.
Rodon took a rotation spot after Chris Sale went down with a foot injury in the spring. And, while Sale is expected to miss at least a few starts in the opening weeks of the season, Rodon may not be the one to fill the spot.
Veteran RHP Brad Penny , who has a 3.52 ERA this spring, may get the call instead, because the White Sox don't want to send Rodon back down after Sale returns to the rotation.
“The last thing you want is: bring him up when he’s not ready just to throw him into a game and send him back down,” manager Robin Ventura told JJ Stankevitz of CSN Chicago. “But a guy like him, he works so hard to get to this point, you don’t want it to be a short stint, you want him when he comes up he’s ready to go and you keep him there.”
“He’s a horse,” Ventura said. “He goes out there, he’s big and strong, there’s all those things that you like to see in a pitcher that he has.”
White Sox pitcher Carlos Rodon: I feel like I'm ready
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/7/15) White Sox pitcher Carlos Rodon is feeling strong and cofident after making his first start of spring training Friday, reports MLB.com.
"If it's up to me, I feel like I'm ready," Rodon said. "It's a decision they have to make. It doesn't matter what I think sometimes."
Rodon, who struck out four in two shutout innings Friday, feels that he benefited from going to college instead of coming to the league straight out of high school.
"I've talked about this with a lot of people," Rodon said. "A guy is coming out of high school, he needs three to five years to develop. College guys have more makeup, understand what he needs to do himself, how to keep his composure. We are going to be more ready, that's a good way to put that, than a high school guy."
White Sox P Carlos Rodon makes spring debut
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/6/15) White Sox pitcher Carlos Rodon, the the third pick in the 2014 draft, made his spring debut Friday afternoon against the Padres. He struck out four in two shutout innings. Of his 31 pitches, 21 were called for a strike.
According to MLB.com, Rodon threw more in the bullpen following his debut.
"I didn't really expect anything, just try to go out there, pound the zone, fastball-slider and I felt good," Rodon said, per Comcast SportsNet Chicago.
White Sox's Carlos Rodon to take Chris Sale's start
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) With pitcher Chris Sale sidelined with a broken foot, White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said Carlos Rodon will start Friday in place of Sale, reports MLB.com.
Rodon has never pitched in a major-league game.
|2014 summary: The White Sox drafted Carlos Rodon out of North Carolina State with the third overall pick in the 2014 June Amateur Draft. He pitched briefly at the Arizona Rookie League, Advanced Class A Winston-Salem and Triple-A Charlotte. Across the three stops, Rodon allowed eight earned runs over 24 2/3 innings for a 2.92 ERA with 38 strikeouts and 13 walks.|
Playing time status: Rodon figured to begin this season in the minors, but a strong performance this spring has earned him consideration for a rotation spot. Ultimately, the White Sox may decide to take it slow with their first-round pick, but chances are he'll be up sooner than later this season.
2015 outlook: Unless it's clear that Rodon is going to be a part of the White Sox's rotation, he can be ignored in standard mixed leagues -- other than keeper leagues -- on Draft Day. Given his upside and proximity to the majors, though, he's an advisable draft-and-stash in deeper leagues.
