The Chicago White Sox could send two pitchers to the SF Giants for Carlos Rodon.

The Chicago White Sox would love to have Carlos Rodon back. For most of the 2021 season, he was the best pitcher on the team. It was his first fully healthy season so he did experience some arm fatigue late in the year but he was mostly elite.

The fact that they didn’t give him an offer is just horrible. He deserved to be given the chance to come back to the White Sox. If he rejected it, they would have been given an extra draft pick and some extra money but they decided not to.

Now, they would have to admit they were wrong in order to give something up to get him but it is worth it. Sending over Davis Martin and Jonathan Stiever to get him back would be a no-brainer. The Giants would be getting two decent pitching prospects for someone who may leave.

Martin has been really good in the few starts that he made with the White Sox this season. Getting something for him with his value this high might be a smart idea. Some might be upset to see him go but it would be so worth it for a pitcher like Carlos Rodon.
