Starting pitching depth was a key concern among White Sox fans (myself included) this past offseason. Ultimately, the decision to bring back Carlos Rodón was a disappointing one for many. However, if Rodón performs as he did tonight, and he manages to stay healthy, his one year, $3 million deal will turn out to be a big-time bargain.
The White Sox used big performances from Rodón, the bullpen (Michael Kopech and José Ruiz), Yasmani Grandal and of course, Yermín Mercedes, to win tonight’s matchup, 6-0.
Carlos Rodón got through five innings, and although there were a couple of hiccups, he allowed zero runs.
