Despite move to bullpen, Hector Noesi has starts ahead

White Sox

MILWAUKEE -- He’s in the bullpen for now but the White Sox still plan to use Hector Noesi as a spot starter.

While the announcement that Carlos Rodon is in the rotation has resulted in a move to the bullpen for bullpen, that won’t always be the case, general manager Rick Hahn said Tuesday. The White Sox don’t just intend to cut Rodon loose -- they have a plan in place to limit his workload. That means Noesi, who is 0-3 with a 5.94 ERA in five games (four starts), should get several starts along the way.

“This isn’t the end of Hector Noesi’s starting career, either,” Hahn said. “He will get more opportunities, primarily out the bullpen initially, be he will get chances to start as well and see where it goes. We will remain open-minded and flexible with this. This is the start of the process of making Carlos Rodon a regular member of the rotation and there will be adjustments along the way.”
