White Sox prospect LHP Carlos Rodon allowed one run on two hits in one inning Tuesday in his professional debut in the Rookie-level Arizona League.
He struck out one batter in the outing. Selected by the White Sox with the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, Rodon, 21, finally began his career after signing for $6.582 million, which was well above the assigned slot value of $5.7 million. The left-hander has the potential to move quickly through the South Siders' system and could reach the High-A level before season's end, thus putting him on pace to debut in the major leagues at some point in 2015.
