Carlos Rodon is making a rehab start for Chicago White Sox single-A affiliate Winston-Salem on Tuesday night, and it just so happens that Winston-Salem is in the triangle to face the Carolina Mudcats.
So you’ve got yourself an extremely rare opportunity to watch the big fella pitch again in the Raleigh area, folks; I’d take advantage of that if I could.
Rodon has been on the shelf since he developed elbow bursitis in spring training and is probably still a ways off from returning to the White Sox, assuming he returns at all this season. They’ve been extra careful with this injury since the team is in full rebuilding mode right now and his presence would have no impact on what is already a lost season.
That makes Tuesday night the first official Carlos Rodon Day of 2017. Cheers and hooray to us all for this great and most blessed of days.
