Top Carlos Rodon News

  • Carlos Rodon: Opts out of deal

    Rodon exercised his 2023 opt-out clause and became a free agent Sunday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Rodon signed a two-year deal with San Francisco ahead of the 2022 campaign but will seek out a new contract after he posted a 2.88 ERA, 237:52 K:BB and 1.03 WHIP in 178 innings during his first season with the Giants. The southpaw figures to draw plenty of interest in free agency ahead of his age-30 season.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Not starting Tuesday

    Rodon won't start Tuesday against the Padres and isn't expected to pitch in Wednesday's season finale, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Manager Gabe Kapler indicated Monday the left-hander may not make his final turn through the rotation, and Alex Cobb has now been announced as the starter for the penultimate game of the season. Rodon threw a career-high 178 frames in 2022 and had a 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 237:52 K:BB with a 14-8 record. He joined the Giants on a two-year, $44 million deal in March but can opt out of the contract since he exceeded 110 innings, so he's likely headed back to the open market this offseason.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Moves to injured list

    Rodon was feeling under the weather Tuesday and was placed on the 15-day injured list, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The left-hander was originally slated to start Tuesday but instead had his final turn through the rotation skipped with the Giants already eliminated from postseason contention, and the team opted to move him to the IL to free up a spot on the active roster. Alex Cobb is pitching against the Padres in his place. Rodon closed out the year with a 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 237:52 K:BB across a career-high 178 innings, and he's likely to decline his player option for 2023 and become a free agent during the offseason.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Could be done for season

    Rodon may not make his final start of the regular season due to workload management, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Manger Gabe Kapler noted Monday that there's a possibility the ace won't make his final scheduled start of the season Tuesday against the Padres, noting his increase in workload during the 2022 campaign. Rodon owns a 14-8 record with a 2.88 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with a 237:52 K:BB across 178 frames, a career high for the southpaw. The team has yet to make a final decision, however.

He finishes September having allowing seven runs (six earned) across 26.2 innings in five starts. The ace southpaw has a 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 237:52 K:BB across 178 innings through 31 starts overall, and he tentatively lines up to make his final start of the season next week in San Diego.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Surrenders four in no-decision

    Rodon didn't factor into the decision during Friday's 6-5 win against Arizona, allowing four runs on four hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

    Rodon permitted a two-run Stone Garrett home run in the third inning and put two on in the fifth before being pulled, with both runners coming around to score. The poor start is only the 29-year-old's second in his last 10 turns, during which he's pitched to a 2.25 ERA with 79 strikeouts in 56 innings. Rodon possesses a 2.98 ERA and 1.05 WHIP to go along with the second-most strikeouts in MLB at 227 across 30 starts.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Start pushed to Friday

    Rodon's next start will be moved to Friday against the Diamondbacks due to a blister and cracked nail on his left hand, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    It was initially believed that Rodon was on track to make his scheduled start Tuesday in Colorado, but the team has decided to exercise caution by giving him a few extra days to recover. The Giants have yet to name Tuesday's starter following this change of plans.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Should make next start

    Rodon (finger) looks to be good to go for his next start, which lines up to come Tuesday in Colorado, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Rodon left his last start against Atlanta after just five innings and 71 pitches due to a blister and a cracked nail, but it doesn't look as though the issue will force him to miss a turn in the rotation. That's excellent news for the Giants and for those with Rodon on their fantasy teams, as Rodon's dominant season makes him a strong choice even at Coors Field.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Picks up win despite blister

    Rodon (13-8) earned the win against Atlanta on Wednesday after giving up one unearned run across five innings, but he exited the contest due to a blister and a cracked nail on one of his fingers, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. The left-hander struck out eight and allowed two hits and one walk.

    Rodon threw 47 of 71 pitches for strikes through five innings before departing the contest, as the finger issues didn't diminish his effectiveness. The 29-year-old's next turn through the rotation tentatively lines up for Tuesday in Colorado, and manager Gabe Kapler believes Rodon will be good to go for that outing.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Punches out 11 in loss

    Rodon (12-8) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk over 5.1 innings Friday, striking out 11 and taking a loss against the Cubs.

    Aside from Yan Gomes' two-run shot in the second inning, Rodon turned in a dominant performance in the tough-luck loss. The 29-year-old southpaw has recorded double-digit strikeouts in four of his last five starts, improving his K:BB to 212:48 through 162.2 frames. Rodon has given up two or fewer runs in seven of his last eight outings and he's now sporting a 2.93 ERA on the year. He's expected to face Atlanta at home next week.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Strong start goes unrewarded

    Rodon took a no-decision Sunday versus the Phillies, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out 10 over six scoreless innings.

John Brebbia couldn't hold the lead in the eighth inning, denying Rodon the win, though the Giants ultimately prevailed with a walkoff in the ninth. Rodon has recorded double-digit strikeouts in five of his last eight starts, and he's allowed more than two runs only twice in that span. The southpaw has a 2.92 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 201:47 K:BB through 157.1 innings across 27 starts this season. He's projected for a road start at Wrigley Field during next weekend's three-game series versus the Cubs.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Electric versus Tigers

    Rodon (12-6) earned a win after he pitched seven innings, surrendering one run on five hits while striking out 10 in Tuesday's victory over the Tigers.

    Rodon was in full command Tuesday, tossing six scoreless innings before the Tigers finally scratched a run across in the bottom of the seventh, accounting for all the damage against him. The left-hander registered double-digit punchouts for the second straight start and for the fourth time in six outings. Rodon has now compiled three consecutive quality starts, allowing four runs over 19 innings while striking out 28 batters over that stretch.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Mows down 11 batters in no-decision

    Rodon did not factor in the decision against Arizona on Wednesday despite allowing only one run on two hits and two walks while striking out 11 batters over six innings.

    Rodon exited after six frames staked to a one-run lead, but an eighth-inning Diamondbacks comeback removed his chance at a win. Despite the final outcome, the southpaw was dominant in the outing, racking up 19 swinging strikes and registering double-digit punchouts for the third time in his past five starts. Rodon has posted a 2.67 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 41:4 K:BB over 30.1 innings during that stretch. He ranks third in the majors with 179 strikeouts on the campaign.

    Rodon (11-6) allowed two runs on six hits and struck out seven over six innings, earning the win over the Pirates on Friday.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Earns 10th win

    Rodon (10-6) gave up one earned run on five hits and no walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings to earn the win in a 7-3 victory over the Athletics on Saturday.

    Rodon continued his excellent 2022 campaign by holding the Athletics to only one run on a Sean Murphy single. The performance wasn't his most dominant, but he did enough to pick up his 10th win of the season while lowering his ERA back under 3.00. The hard-throwing lefty now boasts a 161:39 K:BB in 128.1 innings this season to go along with an ERA of 2.95. He tentatively lines up for a favorable matchup at home against the Pirates in his next expected start.
