MLB - US Sports: Rodon signs for Giants

Left-hander Carlos Rodon has signed with the San Francisco Giants on a two-year contract worth $44 million that includes an opt-out after the first season.

 

Rodon is 25/1 to have the most regular season strikeouts in MLB and he set a career high wins with the Chicago White Sox in 2021 in going 13-5 with a 2.37 ERA and made his first All-Star team.

Fresh off a starring season

His 24 starts and 132 innings are the most for him since 2016, well beyond his totals in the previous two years combined.

Despite the success, Rodon has a history of arm and shoulder injuries and threw just 28 innings over the final two months of the regular 2021 season.

He played a big part as the White Sox ran away with the American League Central title at 93-69. The 'SouthSiders' beat Cleveland by 13 games and finished with their highest win total since the 2005 World Series Championship team went 99-63.

Rodon was a third overall selection in the 2014 first-player draft out of North Carolina State, has a career record of 42-38 with a 3.72 ERA and 710 strikeouts in 121 games.

Extra option

The Giants will add Rodon to their rotation which includes ace Logan Webb and lefty Alex Wood. San Francisco lost Kevin Gausman to the Toronto Blue Jays earlier in the offseason on a $110 million, five-year deal and they declined Johnny Cueto's $22 million contract option.

The Giants won a franchise-record 107 games last season before losing to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Division series.
