Carlos Rodon Returning to the White Sox

Chicago Cubs

No Carlos Rodon for the Cubs, as the former White Sox lefty is former no more. He’s sticking with his original club.

Rodon was among the many buy-low, bounce-back options the Cubs were looking at, but you can’t be shocked he’s sticking with the organization he knows. Maybe a new pitching setup will help him get back on track. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of deal he’s getting.

As for the Cubs, I really liked Rodon’s potential upside and the fact that he’s a lefty. Oh well. Others on the radar in this tier include Jeff Samardzija, Jake Arrieta, Chris Archer, Mike Foltynewicz, Rick Porcello, and Trevor Williams, among others.

UPDATE: Rodon gets $3 million, which was probably just a touch more than Cubs wanted to commit to an upside guy.
