White Sox place Rodón on IL with shoulder fatigue

MLB

MINNEAPOLIS (AP)The Chicago White Sox placed left-hander Carlos Rodon on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday with left shoulder fatigue.

Rodon was headed back to Chicago on Wednesday to receive further testing. Chicago manager Tony La Russa said the team made the move to the injured list based on Rodon’s complaints of soreness and fatigue in his throwing shoulder.

”Hoping it’s a short break and he’ll be back sooner than later,” La Russa said.

Rodon is 9-5 with a 2.38 ERA in 19 starts this season and was an All-Star for the first time in his career. Right-handed reliever Matt Foster was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.

Rodon was scheduled to start Thursday’s Field of Dreams game in Iowa against the Yankees. La Russa altered his starting rotation as a result, pushing Lance Lynn back a day to start Thursday and having Reynaldo Lopez start a bullpen game on Wednesday in the series finale at Minnesota.

La Russa also announced that he wouldn’t be with the team in Iowa. He will be attending a funeral after a death in his family. Miguel Cairo will manage the White Sox.
