Fight suspensions might get Carlos Rodon in White Sox rotation
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) White Sox rookie pitcher Carlos Rodon may end up getting his first career start, thanks to a bench clearing brawl.
Jeff Samardzija and Chris Sale both received five game suspensions that would require them to miss a start. That means Rodon may be called on to fill in.
"Certainly Carlos is stretched out and does have the ability to start should he be needed," general manager Rick Hahn said, per ESPN. "At the same time we need to balance that against keeping him on the current program [a long-man relief role], as well as some of the other potential alternatives we have within the system to make a spot start should we get to that point. So it is a possibility, but not one we are ready to commit to just at this time."
White Sox rookie Rodon 'ready to get back on the mound'
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) White Sox highly touted pitching prospect Carlos Rodon arrived at the park Wednesday sans the mustache gracing his upper lip for his major league debut Tuesday night.
Superstiton? Maybe. But why take chances? The 22 year old was terrible in his first appearance, giving up three hits, three walks and two earned runs in 2 1/3 innings against a Cleveland team that had been struggling mightily at the plate.
As for the mustache, Rodoon told the Chicago Tribune that he was merely seeking to "change the juju up." He then spoke about his eagerness to return to action.
"I'm ready to get back on the mound, man," he said.
Pitching coach Don Cooper is ready for him to do the same thing.
"There was nothing where we wanted it last night," Cooper said. "He threw more balls than strikes. I'm sure it had a lot to do with it, the nerves. He wasn't finishing his pitches, was standing straight up at the end. I think the moment was a big moment."
White Sox's Ventura: Carlos Rodon might start later in season
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) White Sox prospect Carlos Rodon will continue to work as a reliever to begin his MLB career, manager Robin Ventura told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday. However, Ventura added there is an "opportunity" for the highly touted prospect to enter the rotation later in the season.
Rodon made his MLB debut Tuesday, allowing two earned runs on three hits and three walks in 2 1/3 innings. He struck out one.
ChiSox prospect Carlos Rodon struggles in relief role in MLB debut
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/22/15) Carlos Rodon, the White Sox No. 3 overall pick in 2014, made his major-league debut Tuesday, giving up two runs, three hits and three walks in 2 1/3 innings of relief.|
"Yeah, a little bit of butterflies. It was fun to be out there, though. Considering," Rodon said afterwards. "[Relief] is something I have to be ready for. No excuses. Maybe overthrowing but no excuses. Just have to be good in that situation."
Rodon gave up a two-run single to pinch hitter Ryan Raburn in the sixth and allowed two more runs in the seventh.
"I threw all over the place but finally found some command," Rodon add.
White Sox add Carlos Rodon, activate Jake Petricka from DL
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) The White Sox purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Carlos Rodon Monday while also activating right-handed pitcher Jake Petricka from the 15-day disabled list.
The pair are set to strengthen the team's bullpen, which is 26th in the league with a .252 batting average against while posting a 3.86 ERA.
Rodon was the team's No. 3 overall selection in last year's draft and has thrown just 34 1/3 inings in his professional career. He's expected to pitch out of the rotation long-term but will begin his career as a reliever. The White Sox did the same thing with current ace Chris Sale, who made 79 relief appearances in 2010 and 2011 before joining the rotation in 2012 and reeling off three straight seasons with top-six Cy Young finishes.
Petricka opened the season on the disabled list due to a sore right forearm. He started his rehab assignment Thursday and is able to join the team this week after suffering no setbacks.
"It was a matter of getting rid of that soreness, and time wasn't on our side in spring and now we are here," Petricka said, per MLB.com. "I mean, I definitely wanted to be here, but it was more of a mental change than physical because the structure was fine in the arm. It was a matter of getting it feeling good again. That was a tough little battle. But it's over and now let's have a good long season."
|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.
