I think it would be prudent for the Sox to cautiously proceed in just that fashion.

Meh. Notwithstanding the Danks experience, I'll wait for a doctor to find an objective reason to be concerned before I re-calibrate my expectations for Rodon.

Yes, the Sox should proceed as such. But, i'm not writing him off yet. Don't get me wrong, it'll be very disappointing if Rodon's career is derailed by shoulder problems. But, that being said, at least the Sox rebuild doesn't rest on his success. We were in a far different situation in 2012 with Danks since the Sox had just locked him up to a 5-yr/$65M deal and let Buehrle walk that offseason only to have Danks go down with his shoulder injury in May. This time around, the Sox have much more high-quality starting pitching depth in the organization and they aren't committed financially to Rodon long-term.

Of course, we'd much rather that this turns out to be nothing and Carlos goes on to have a long, effective career as a Sox starter. Losing him would be a blow to this team without a doubt, but not one that should derail the organization's progression towards being a playoff contender again in a couple of years.

At any rate, I don't expect that we'll find out anything new other than speculation at least until pitchers report to Glendale in late February.

I know what you're saying is right but why do I feel like I am getting kicked in the gut?

Rodon, who is at SoxFest this weekend, will be starting a throwing program on Monday:

Rick Hahn says Rodon won't pitch in any Cactus League games and isn't expected to pitch in a game until extended spring training. I don't read this to mean there has been a setback in his rehab. They've said all along that there is a 6-8 month recovery window for his surgery.

Best possible scenario is that he comes back with guns blazing for the second half of 2018, has no sign of any lingering health issues, and they pencil him into the 2019-2021 rotation.

Worst possible scenario is that 2018 is a washout, they feel they need to cut their losses, and they can't get anything for him in a trade.

Most likely scenario is he comes back, pitches well enough to tease, and gets traded in the offseason for a more dependable major league piece and a lottery ticket.

Agreed. This is the best situation because with his agent he's not staying long term. He'll go through the free agent process and frankly he hasn't shown me enough to warrant a 100 million dollar deal even if the Sox were willing to take that risk.

I posted this in the spring training thread too, but some encouraging progress by Rodon in his rehab from shoulder surgery. Yes, he still has a long way to go, but we can only take this one step at a time.

Per Chuck Garfien on Twitter

"Rodon says he’ll likely start a rehab assignment in extended spring training soon, then minors and hopefully in majors when he comes off 60-day DL at end of May."

So if all goes well we should see Rodon back in a month or so

Well there's good news and bad news...

Bad news... Carlos Rodon took a linedrive off the forehead yesterday during the game.

Good news... he appears to be fine and bounced right back up. They took him out as a precaution anyway, but wow...

He struck out 6 in 2.2 before being removed.

I like the closing line in the article about the fielder getting the out after catching the ball off of Rodon's forehead

I remember explaining this little oddity to baseball rules to an uninitiated friend, and he couldn't stop laughing--and that was just at the Jose Canseco example we all remember.

Any update on his health since then? I mean, I know he looked like it was okay immediately after, but how does he feel after the adrenaline subsided and his body was able to take stock of the damage? Here's to hoping and praying that he doesn't go right back to the DL

At most he would be put in the concussion protocol which would slow down his ability to pitch live games but shouldn't stop him from rehabbing and continuing to stay strong with his arm. So long as his arm is healthy this might set him back a week or two but not much more, unless it's a really bad concussion but normally that means the player got knocked out. Rodon didn't so here's hoping he's fine or his set back is a minor one
