Baseball America On Carlos Rodon's Recent Performance

Jim Shonerd of Baseball America wrote a good piece on Carlos Rodon, his start Saturday, and the way he's been playing lately.

Rodon had everything working from the outset Saturday, from his overpowering fastball to his cutter and backfoot slider that make him deadly even against predominantly righthanded lineups. He hit 92-93 mph regularly throughout the night and retired the first 12 Tribe batters, carrying a no-hitter into the sixth before giving up a two-out single to William Shaw. He responded to that affront by striking out five of the next six.

Took a no-hitter deep into the game for the second straight start. He has allowed a total of three hits over his last 23 innings pitched, which is insane.
