— Carlos Rodon’s rapid rise through the Chicago White Sox system took yet another step Saturday as he was promoted to Triple-A Charlotte.

Rodon will join the Knights Sunday in Durham as they take on the Bulls at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, however, he will not make his Triple-A debut until Tuesday when they host Gwinnett. The Bulls and Charlotte wrap up their season series with each other at DBAP Sunday night at 5 p.m.

A Holly Springs native who starred at NC State, Rodon was the No. 3 overall pick of the White Sox in the 2014 MLB Draft. He had two appearances in the Arizona Rookie League before making the jump to Single-A Winston-Salem where he appeared in four games, starting two.

In six career professional appearances between the two levels, Rodon has given up five runs on 11 hits in 12.2 innings. He has also struck out 20 batters and walked just five.

The Knights website indicated that Rodon will get the start Tuesday at BB&T Park against Gwinnett, the Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves.

Rodon’s promotion was one of three notable moves the White Sox have made in the last 24 hours. Joining Rodon in Charlotte will also be outfielder Josh Richmond and former UNC Charlotte pitcher Tyler Barnette.

    Why not? Doesn't matter if it's 1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year, etc. According to MLB, Moore has 4 years MLB experience. Really doesn't matter if it's 1 year or 4 years we're looking at.

    Simple question really......

    Negative! Doesn't matter to me that Moore got the call in September. Clemens was 21 years of age when he made his debut, Moore was 22. Moore appeared in 31/27 during his 2nd/3rd seasons in the Bigs, Clemens appeared in 15/33.
    Moore's combined appearances = 58 to the Rocket's 48. The Rocket went 31-9 while Moore went 28-15.

    Let's compare their 3rd seasons in the Bigs. The Rocket went 24-4 in 33 Gs, 254 IP, 238 K's, a 2.48 ERA. Moore went 17-4 in 27 Gs, 3.29 ERA, 150 IP, 143 K's.

    Comparing Moore to the Rocket is like comparing a hamburger to a steak.

    But Clemens pitched 10 times as many games his first season, Moore only made 3 appearances, he was in AAA until September. And Moore made 2 starts this season, so you're really comparing Moore's 2 season to Clemens' 4, which is like comparing a bicycle to a Bugatti. If you're going to compare pitchers "stuff", which is where this all started, you have to use a time frame that makes sense, not using twice as much data from one player to diminish another.

    Based on a report I saw dated June 2013, regarding Tommy John surgery, the success rate was around 85%. That report also indicated that there is a 12-16 month rehab period. No guarantees. Hope Moore makes it back & has a HOF career.

    Somebody else brought up Moore. And since he's only been in the Bigs for 4 years, it was the only data available on the BL level. Very relevant if you're gonna do a comparison at this stage. Clemens pitched more during his first 4 years but that speaks to his durability/skill. If Moore comes back & has the career Clemens did, which I doubt, we can pick this up in the future. There is nothing to compare at this point. Moore had a great year last season but he's gonna have to do that for the next several years....like Clemens.

    IP first 4 years...same age,
    Rocket - 766
    Moore - 347...is what it is.

    Pitchers coming back from Tommy John surgery have, for the most part lately, been just as good as before.
    Also, comparing Moore and Clemens stats for their first 4 years is very misleading (not sure why Moore was even brought up in this comparison). Clemens appeared in 105 games in his first 4 season and made his first ever start in May of that year. Moore has played in 63 games in the majors, his first was in September. And the fact that Clemens has finished his career and Moore could play for another decade makes this comparison useless. Add to the fact that Clemens has been tied to steroid usage, and that clouds his stats some (even though he was more likely to use them later in his career than in his first 4 years, amphetamine usage was very high at the time and has been illegal for all of Moore's big league career).

    Good point about intimidating southpaws. If he can manage to stay healthy, the sky is the limit. Can be tough being a pitcher given the strain on the arm. Hopefully, he won't have to deal with that. Ex. M Moore

    Rocket - 60 & 22 w 694 K's

    Moore - 29 & 17 w 339 K's

    ***Moore tore a ligament in his elbow earlier in the season & may never be the same. He was capable of hitting the upper '90s before his injury (2 games pitched in 2014)
