The Chicago White Sox continue to hover around the .500 mark while dealing with several injuries to the major league roster. Players such as James Shields, Nate Jones, Zach Putnam, and Jake Petricka have been shelved with injuries, but the White Sox continue to play decent baseball.

One injured player that we have not yet seen this year is Carlos Rodon. Rodon suffered an infirmity to his bicep in Spring Training. He recently told reporters that when the injury first occurred, he only expected to be out until about May 1. Obviously, that wasn’t the case. Rodon explained how his lengthy rehab process has been a very frustrating one. The White Sox have repeatedly stated that they intend to be as cautious as possible with Rodon’s injury, and they have no intentions to rush him back to the rotation.

Rodon has now thrown a total of five simulated games, and he threw to White Sox minor leaguers in Arizona recently. Clearly, progress is being made, but a return to the White Sox likely will take a few more weeks at the earliest. The earliest possible outcome for Rodon would be a rehab assignment to the minor leagues during the first week of June.

The White Sox have high hopes for Rodon. They expect him to be a dominating starting pitcher for many years to come. Because of this, taking the cautious route with Rodon is the best choice.
