It’s taken him a while, but Rodon, the third pick of the 2014 draft, looks like he’s finally settled in for the White Sox.
Since coming off the disabled list to make his season debut in June, the 25-year-old southpaw has posted a 6-4 record to go along with a 2.89 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and .181 batting average against — that last number would have him ranked third in the majors (!) had he amassed enough innings to qualify.
Even though he doesn’t have enough innings to qualify for the league leaderboard, Rodon has still pitched 99.2 innings in 15 starts, and that’s a decent sample size upon which we can base our pick.
