Is Rodon Ready for His First MLB Start This Year?

A ninth-inning collapse led to the Yankees’ demise last night but they’ll try to get right back on the horse Wednesday when they send Masahiro Tanaka (5-7, 5.74 ERA) to the mound to face the Pale Hose. The sinker-ball specialist is coming off his best start of the season and is one of the many reasons why the Bronx Bombers will come into tonight’s contest as large moneyline favorites.

  • The Yankees are 1-10 SU in their last 11 games against teams with losing records.
  • The visiting team is 9-27 SU in its last 36 games in this matchup.
  • The White Sox are 5-1 SU in their last 6 home games with Carlos Rodon as the starting pitcher.

Carlos Rodon is finally prepared to make his first big-league start of the season but if you look at the numbers he’s posted in his rehab outings, you may question the validity of his readiness. The southpaw posted a combined ERA over 10 through three warm-up starts and his 9.64 career ERA against the Yankees also fails to inspire confidence.

The lefty has been incredibly inconsistent over the course of his young career but showed his serious potential when he posted a 3-0 record and a 1.47 ERA in five August starts last year.

An interesting matchup tonight will ensue when Rodon goes up against the right-handed Aaron Judge for the first time. Righties have dominated the 24-year-old (.799 OPS and 21 home runs) in 2017 and Judge is currently the best righty hitter in baseball.
