White Sox’ Carlos Rodon makes second start of spring

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Carlos Rodon makes his second start of the spring Thursday when the White Sox host the Brewers in a Cactus League game at Camelback Ranch.

Rodon is the favorite to be the White Sox starter Opening Day on March 28 in Kansas City. In his first Cactus League start against the Rockies, he left a slider in the middle of the strike zone and gave up a three-run homer to Pat Valaika in the second inning. Around that frame, he pitched two scoreless innings, striking out two and walking one over his three innings of work.

Rodon has never started an opener.

“It would be pretty cool,” Rodon said. “But it’s something that has to be earned.”
