Report: Carlos Rodon to undergo Tommy John surgery
The news White Sox fans and their front office did not want to hear. Carlos Rodon will indeed go under the knife and have Tommy John surgery according to Daryl Van Schouwen:
Carlos Rodon scheduled for Tommy John.

The future of the White Sox rotation has been snake bitten–Zack Burdi, Michael Kopech and Dane Dunning have all been shelved after having the surgery in recent years. Burdi’s back, pitching at Double-A Birmingham, but Kopech and Dunning are still on the mend. Kopech’s not expected to be back on a big league mound until the 2020 season. Dunning’s surgery came later and could be facing a further off return date.
If Rodon is sidelined for roughly a year while in recovery mode, that would have more negative effects on the White Sox planned rotation of the future.
Stay tuned as MFST will continue to update the situation.
