GLENDALE, Ariz. -- White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper does not currently have Carlos Rodon scheduled to start a Cactus League contest. But the White Sox top prospect and No. 14 prospect overall, as ranked by MLB.com, will be throwing innings and progressing as a starter.
Cooper added that the 22-year-old southpaw could start a "B" game or get a start in one of the two split-squad setups on March 12 and April 1. Rodon was characterized by Cooper as someone who wants to be good and has set the bar high personally, but Cooper wants the young hurler simply to feel comfortable as himself in his first big league camp.
