The Chicago White Sox began their first series against the Cleveland Indians on Monday. However, instead of projected starter Carlos Rodon taking the mound, manager Tony La Russa went with Dallas Keuchel instead. It was announced that Rodon was experiencing an illness.
The White Sox ended up winning Monday night, so all seemed to work out. However, it left many to question when Rodon would return. That question was answered today, with the team announcing the lefty will return to the mound on Wednesday.
For now, it seems as though Carlos Rodon’s place in the rotation is safe. However, with the recent emergence of Michael Kopech out of the bullpen, missing any starts moving forward may not bode well for Rodon.
The White Sox trot Lucas Giolito out tonight against Shane Bieber. As Scott Merkin noted, Rodon and Lance Lynn have the next two starts.
