Carlos Rodon is coming home for his first start since spring training.
The former N.C. State star will pitch for the Winston-Salem Dash on Tuesday night (7 p.m.) against the Carolina Mudcats at Five County Stadium in Zebulon.
Never miss a local story.
Rodon, who led the Wolfpack to the College World Series in 2013 and was the top pick of the Chicago White Sox a year later, has been sidelined with an arm injury since March.
The left-hander, who grew up in Holly Springs, went 9-10 with a 4.04 ERA last season with the White Sox and was 9-6 (3.75 ERA) as a rookie in 2015. He has been on the 60-day disabled list with bursitis in his left biceps.
He hasn’t pitched since he threw four scoreless innings on March 19 in a spring training game.
Rodon started a pair of games for the Dash, the White Sox Single-A affiliate, in 2014 after Chicago made him the No. 3 overall pick in the draft.
