Carlos Rodon Will Have Tommy John Surgery

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Carlos Rodon (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery this week and isnt expected back until the second half of next season at the earliest. Its a shame as Rodon was off to a nice start this season and has fought numerous injuries throughout his career. Manny Banuelos has been pitching in place of Rodon and is no more than a streaming option at this point.

Fate of Carlos Rodon Still Unknown

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Carlos Rodon, who has been sidelined since May 2 with elbow problems, continues to await a final decision as to whether he will undergo Tommy John surgery, and an announcement is not expected until next week. However, the worst can be expected at this point. Rodon only had a 5.19 ERA in seven starts, but 46 strikeouts in 34 2/3 innings had helped him to a 3.54 FIP. Unfortunately, that appears likely to be irrelevant now as the surgery, if he has it, will likely keep him out until midway through the 2020 season.

Tommy John Surgery Recommended For Carlos Rodon

The first opinion Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Carlos Rodon (elbow) received suggested Tommy John surgery. The team is awaiting the results of a second doctor's opinion, but it's not looking good so far for the left-hander. If Rodon does indeed have elbow reconstruction, he'd be out the rest of this year part of the 2020 season. The 26-year-old was 3-2 with a 5.19 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 34 2/3 innings (seven starts) before his injury. The strikeouts have been there, but his lack of control (4.4 BB/9) continues to hurt him. If Tommy John surgery is confirmed, you can drop him in all redraft leagues.
