Carlos was originally drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2011, but did not sign. In 2014, the Chicago White Sox selected Rodon in the first round of the amateur draft, third overall. Carlos quickly moved up the ranks in the White Sox farm system and made his MLB debut on April 25, 2015.
Rodon's MLB beginnings were encouraging, but a bit rough. During the last two months of the '15 season, Carlos smoothed out those rough edges and transformed himself into an even better pitcher. The smart money is on Rodon continuing to adjust, retool and focus on improvement, where he could eventually find himself near the top of the heap of MLB starting pitchers.
