The Chicago White Sox have brought back pitcher Carlos Rodon on a one-year, $3 million deal.
Rodon was limited to just 7.2 innings over four appearances with two starts in last year's shortened season due to injuries. Rodon will likely compete with Dylan Cease and Reynaldo Lopez for the final two spots in the White Sox starting rotation with Michael Kopech potentially being held back initially according to Rosenthal.
LHP Carlos Rodon was non-tendered by the White Sox Wednesday.
Rodon was entering the final year of arbitration and Chicago decided to non-tender the LHP. He dealt with shoulder discomfort during the regular season, but returned to the mound in late-September. Rodon posted a (0-2) record along with a 8.22 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 6:3 K:BB over seven 2/3 innings for the White Sox in 2020. The 27-year-old left-hander will try to latch onto another team willing to take a gamble on the oft-injured pitcher.
The White Sox activated LHP Carlos Rodon (shoulder, back) off the 45-day injured list.
Rodon has been sidelined since making his first two starts of the year. He's rejoining the team as a reliever for the final few days of the regular season.
White Sox LHP Carlos Rodon (shoulder, back) could throw a bullpen on Monday.
Rodon was originally placed on the IL with a shoulder injury but has since developed a back problem. There isn't enough time left in the season to bring him back as a starter, so he'll pitch out of the bullpen if he returns at all.
