According to Jon Heyman of the MLB Network, Carlos Rodon has signed a deal to return to the Chicago White Sox. Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports the deal is worth $3 million.

The White Sox drafted Carlos Rodon in the first round of the 2014 MLB Draft with the third overall selection. He was even the club's opening day starter in 2019. His career has been full of ups and downs. The injury bug has seemed to always pay a visit to Rodon, which hurt him in finding the consistency he needed to become a staple in the White Sox rotation on a consistent basis.

This is a typical White Sox move as they went with a cheaper option and also one that is familiar to them. Rodon has a career ERA of 4.14 and has not pitched over 100 innings since 2018. One would assume that he will serve as a placeholder of sorts until the White Sox's second-ranked prospect Michael Kopech is ready to join the major league club.
