White Sox starter Carlos Rodón will undergo Tommy John surgery this week,’s Scott Merkin reports. Rodón can be expected back on the mound in the second half of the 2020 season at the earliest.

Rodón, 24, landed on the IL two weeks ago due to inflammation in his left elbow, and the potential for Tommy John surgery was known then. He sought two different opinions from doctors and it appears surgery was the recommended route.

Rodón made seven starts this season, alllowing 20 runs on 33 hits and 17 walks with 46 strikeouts in 34 2/3 innings.
