CHICAGO -- Carlos Rodon will be promoted to Triple-A Charlotte following four games with Class A Winston-Salem, two starts for the Dash and six games overall, including the Arizona Rookie League White Sox.

The White Sox top pick in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft and third overall selection has posted a 2.84 ERA, with 20 strikeouts and five walks over 12 2/3 innings. The southpaw, ranked the organization's top prospect, struck out seven over 3 2/3 innings in his last start for the Dash against Lynchburg on Aug. 13.

Rodon will have five days off between starts moving into Tuesday. If he stays on that five-day rest with Charlotte, he also would pitch on Aug. 25 at home against Norfolk and on Aug. 31 at home against Gwinnett. That schedule leaves Rodon primed for a September callup, although the White Sox have given no indication that move was probable.
