White Sox mapping out blueprint for Carlos Rodon's future
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/24/15) The White Sox are willing to wait before deciding Carlos Rodon's immediate future, according to Comcast SportsNet Chicago on Saturday.
Although general manager Rick Hahn said Rodon will go through his first professional spring training as a starter, pitching coach Don Cooper indicated that the team could use a similar bullpen-to-rotation blueprint to groom Rodon down the road, which Chicago used for previous pitchers like Chris Sale and Mark Buehrle.
"We didn't draft this guy third in the nation to be a reliever," Cooper said. "At some point he's going to be a starter. We haven't discussed when is that point. Right now he's going to come to spring training, show us what he can do and he's going to give us all the information we need.
"Chris Sale, Mark Buehrle, they started their careers in relief. Buehrle's one of the top pitchers over the last 15 years in White Sox history and Sale is quickly rising up those ranks."
After being drafted No. 3 overall in June, the left-hander worked his way from the Arizona League to Triple-A Charlotte in limited minor league action. He told the Chicago Tribune he's ready for whatever comes his way.
"I'm just focusing on getting better," Rodon said. "They tell me what to do, I show up and I pitch. That's how I look at it."
White Sox expect Carlos Rodon to begin MLB career in bullpen

|(12/9/14) When White Sox pitcher Carlos Rodon does make his major league debut, White Sox executive vice president Kenny Williams said in a radio interview Tuesday morning it will most likely be out of the bullpen.
Rodon was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft, and the White Sox were considering promoting him to the major leagues late in the season, but decided against it.
GM hints that Carlos Rodon won't be coming up
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/2/14) White Sox general manager Rick Hahn indicated pitching prospect Carlos Rodon won't be called up during September, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
"It just wasn’t right time in [Rodon's] development to bring him to the big leagues and and ask him to get big league hitters out," Hahn said. Rodon was the third overall pick in the June draft, but was thought to be one of the closest players to the majors. The club could still bring Rodon up during the month, but it seems unlikely given Hahn's comments.
Carlos Rodon an option for September
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/8/14) The White Sox might be willing to call up 2014 first-round pick Carlos Rodon to make his major-league debut this month, though manager Robin Ventura told MLB.com they are not ready to make that call.
"I'm not even going down that far," Ventura said. "We are concerned about what's going on right here. If they say he's pitching well enough to come up, then the more the merrier at this point."
Rodon, who was the No. 3 overall pick and is currently pitching at Class A Winston-Salem, would likely come up during September roster expansion. That would put him on a similar development path as current ace Chris Sale. Rodon would be expected to pitch out of the bullpen, in order to manage his workload.
Rodon has appeared in five games in the minors since signing his first contract, striking out 13 batters and walking four in nine innings of work.
Carlos Rodon to make Class A debut Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(7/29/14) White Sox pitching prospect Carlos Rodon is scheduled to join high Class A Winston-Salem Wednesday and pitch in relief for the team on the same day, MLB.com reports.
Rodon made two appearances with the team's Arizona League affiliate, giving up two earned runs on four hits in three innings while striking out five and walking none. He was selected third overall in his year's amateur draft and could move quickly through the system.
|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 has a strong chance of cracking the White Sox's roster, if not right out of spring training, then at some point during the season. It is not yet known if the organization wants him to break in as a starter or reliever.
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. He's a must-draft in deeper leagues regardless of his status in spring training, and if he starts the year in the bullpen or minors, he could still be a key FAAB target in standard mixed leagues during the season.
