Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the White Sox will promote pitching prospect Carlos Rodon on Monday. They will have him work out of the bullpen.
Rodon, 22, was taken by the White Sox in the first round (3rd overall) in the 2014 draft. He joined the White Sox for spring training and performed well, posting a 3.06 ERA with a 21/5 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 Cactus League innings. Despite the injury to starter Chris Sale which delayed his start to the season, the White Sox had Rodon start the season with Triple-A Charlotte.
With Charlotte, Rodon has allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits and four walks with 13 strikeouts in 10 innings.
