The Chicago White Sox are a team with a lot of players in the organization looking to be full time starting pitchers with the team. Only Lucas Giolito and Dallas Keuchel are considered locks but you can assume, at least for now, that Gio Gonzalez, Dylan Cease, and Reynaldo Lopez will take up the other rotation pieces. Michael Kopech hopes to be a part of the team in the long term as well so that leaves a question mark for Carlos Rodon.
Rodon has been a really good pitcher that the White Sox have developed but he has been injured a lot. He needed Tommy John early last season which ended the 2019 campaign for him and if this was a normal season he would have missed at least the first half. We don’t know how COVID-19 will impact his return but chances are he is missing fewer man-games than we thought.
If the White Sox wanted to move him to another team for a fresh start, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. They would be able to get their newer pitchers in more and give Rodon a chance with a new team. It would also be nice to see him reach his potential with the White Sox and be a part of the solution but if one of their younger pitchers were to go, it would be him.
