It seems each time the No. 1 Chicago White Sox prospect Carlos Rodon takes the mound, he improves his value to the organization. Thursday night was no different for the left-hander.
Rodon started the game for the advanced Single-A Winston-Salem Dash on Thursday night, and in three innings, he didn’t allow a single run.
The No. 3 overall selection this past June allowed no runs on two hits and one walk. He struck out three and dropped his ERA with the Dash to 3.00.
The Dash eventually lost the game to the Potomac Nationals. 6-4. The Dash allowed nine total hits.
In his three innings, Rodon faced 11 batters.
Rodon has now pitched in three games with the Dash (six total innings), holding the opponent to a .182 batting average.
Thursday was his first start since joint the Dash.

The MiLB ERA for Rodon this summer (he also pitched for the Arizona Rookie League White Sox) is 4.00 (nine innings total), with the opponents having a batting average of .229.
If I were to bet on this, I would say Rodon will be making a start with the Birmingham Barons before the end of the month, maybe his next start.
Who knows, with what seems to be a good progression for Rodon each outing, maybe the White Sox organization sends him straight to Triple-A Charlotte with the Knights?
What do you think the White Sox will do next with Rodon?
