White Sox Make Corresponding Move as Rodon Signing Becomes Official

On Monday, Chicago White Sox made the return of 28-year-old pitcher Carlos Rodon official. In order to do so, they had to make a corresponding move to keep the roster at 40.

The club designated 24-year-old right-hander Emilio Vargas for assignment after claiming him off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks earlier this offseason. Vargas has spent the majority of his time bouncing around from Rookie League to Single-A but did see some action in Double-A as well.

Rodon returns to the White Sox on a one-year deal worth $3 million guaranteed. It’s a straight-forward contract for the Scott Boras client who was a former first-round pick out of North Carolina State. Rodon will get the benefit of throwing under the guidance of new pitching coach Ethan Katz, who brings a different approach to the art of hurling the ball compared to Don Cooper.
