Bummer/ Gonzales/Rodon

Recommended Posts

Good Morning 

Anyone have any updates on these 3. Our bullpen seems to be staggering and would be great to have Gio and especially ABum in the pen. I still want to see if Carlos can pitch well as a 5th if healthy.

Bummer - has a nerve issue, just hope he returns before october

Rodon - throwing in Schaumburg, hopefully next week

GG - should be next week too

This info was mostly shared in RHs recent press conference after trade deadline passed.

I don't think Bummer is coming back soon.

They said Gonzalez might be back by Sunday.

Rodon will likely be back soon.

Need a pool on how many innings Rodon pitches before surgery. I say three.

I remember when people were counting on him this season. Should have learned. I really wish they would just make him a dominant bullpen guy at this point. Not sure he will be worth the 5mil or so next season. What a frustrating dude this guy has been.

Unfortunately, we need Rodon in the rotation now.  Probably going to piggy back Rodon and Gio G to start.

Rodon supposedly threw 60(?) pitches in Schaumburg last weekend.  Haven't heard anything more beyond Keuchel saying Rodon could start or come out of the pen after the trade deadline passed.

GioG's IL stint is retroactive to Aug 27th so he would be eligible to come off this weekend.  Haven't seen anything further since he went on the IL on Aug 30.

With 2 off days next week, Sox won’t need a 5th starter til the 4 game series against the Twins starting September 14th. Rodon can be lined up to pitch the first or second game of that series.

Bummer moved to the 45 day DL.  Done for 2020.  This is gigantic loss for our 2020 hopes.  The bullpen will need some divine intervention.

He can return September 23rd.

He could technically return before season's end.  Not holding my breath though.

100% the right decision on Bummer. I wouldn't have him pitch at all till next season. He is way too important for the future in our pen.

Bleacher Report said "effectively done" for 2020.

I hope you are correct.

I'm not saying he'll be back. The 45 day DL is meaningless though because it's retroactive.

Oh wow Rodon is hurt, how surprising

If you are counting on Rodon you deserve to be disappointed.

Man I feel for Carlos, such potential, just made of glass. I don’t think he’ll attempt to convert to the BP either, due to his agent and his competitive nature. What are the chances he doesn’t throw a pitch as a White Sox again?

Rodon could potentially make more money in the future as an elite reliever than he would as a constantly injured starting pitcher.

If the Sox don't non-tender him, he's going to have to adjust to not starting.  I just can't see the FO going into next season, a season with real expectations, penciling Rodon in every 5th day again.  Too many question marks in the rotation as it is.  At best he is the long man/spot starter/piggy back off Cease & Dunning until Kopech is up.
