Chicago White Sox won’t bring up top pick Carlos Rodon

There was some discussion  a few weeks back that the Chicago White Sox could be tempted to recall left-hander Carlos Rodon, their first-round pick in June’s draft, but general manager Rick Hahn told the Chicago Sun-Times Tuesday that won’t happen.

Per Daryl Van Schouwen of the Sun-Times, via Twitter:

Rodon rocketed through the White Sox’ farm system this summer after signing with Chicago after he was taken third overall in June.

Rodon made a start and a relief appearance for the White Sox Rookie-level affiliate in the Arizona League, pitching three innings and allowing two runs on four hits with five strikeouts.

In two starts and two relief appearances with High-A Winston-Salem, Rodon worked 9.2 innings and surrendered three runs, two earned, on seven hits with five walks and 15 strikeouts.

He made three starts for Triple-A Charlotte, working 12 innings and allowing four runs on nine hits, walking eight and fanning 18.

Rodon’s last start at Charlotte was Saturday, when he worked five innings and took a no-decision against Atlanta’s top farm club in Gwinnett, throwing 81 pitches.

Rodon started 14 games for North Carolina State this spring, going 6-7 with a 2.01 ERA in 98.2 innings, striking out 117.
