Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said that starting pitcher Carlos Rodon (elbow) is three-quarters of the way through his rehab for Tommy John surgery. Rodon's estimated return is between mid-July and August. The White Sox will have a better idea of Rodon's timeline when he's cleared to begin a rehab assignment. The 27-year-old left-hander made just seven starts in 2019 before he underwent Tommy John surgery, posting a weak 5.19 ERA and 1.44 WHIP while striking out 46 and walking 17 in his 34 2/3 innings. Rodon has appealing strikeout upside, but his career 3.9 BB/9 has made him a frustrating and volatile fantasy commodity. You can ignore him in redraft leagues to start the year.
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.
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.
