White Sox: Carlos Rodon Continues to Recover from Bursitis
Colleen Kane writes Carlos Rodon’s recovery from bursitis in his left elbow is going slow but positive. The White Sox will re-evaluate him on April 21.
The Chicago White Sox have had a good start to the season and it’s been without starting pitcher Carlos Rodon. Colleen Kane of the Tribune writes the lefty’s recovery has been positive but slow. He is on a throwing program and will be evaluated again on April 21. Manager Rick Renteria said he has yet to throw off the mound.
Jose Quintana has struggled to start the season so the team could desperately use Rodon. However, the team is technically in the midst of a rebuild, so there is no need to rush him back. They need to give him all the time he needs to recover. And to make sure this doesn’t continue to be an issue for him.

It is quite troubling to see the youngster having elbow problems this early in his career. But hopefully this was just a minor injury. It seems like the organization is being extra cautious, as they should be. There is no reason to risk further injury. Especially to a guy who is in your future plans.
The White Sox are rich with talent at pitching. But Rodon would definitely be the veteran, once the youngsters in the minors are ready. He would also be the only lefty. Assuming Quintana isn’t a part of the team.
If Rodon can come back and be the same pitcher he was at the end of the last season, this team will be in business. They have been playing extremely well to open the season and are sort of a surprise.

No one really saw this team going anywhere. Yet they have a winning record, albeit just 11 games in. However, they could be getting some reinforcements on offense in the form of Yoan Moncada later this season. Rodon coming back healthy will also help this team greatly and give them another reliable arm in the rotation.
