Former NC State pitcher Carlos Rodon will be with the Winston-Salem Dash for their series at Five County Stadium Friday.

Rodon, the 2014 first round pick of the Chicago White Sox, will be working out with the Winston-Salem Dash until traveling to Chicago for a formal introduction and press conference on July 18 at U.S. Cellular Field.

The White Sox and Rodon reached an agreement Friday on a minor league contract that includes a nearly $6.6 million signing bonus.

The lefty will not be added to the Dash’s active roster during his time with Winston-Salem. White Sox general manager Rich Hahn says he sees him as a "premium front end starter," and there is a chance Rodon could be called up to the majors this season.

Rodon was selected with the third overall pick, the highest White Sox draftee since 1977. He guided the N.C. State Wolfpack baseball program its first College World Series in Omaha since 1968 and finished with a career 25-10 record to complement a 2.24 earned run average. A native of Holly Springs, North Carolina, Rodon finished with 436 career strikeouts, a N.C. State record and is one of four pitchers in the ACC to surpass the 400 mark.

Winston-Salem comes to Zebulon for a big series against the Mudcats. Carolina leads their interstate rivals by a game for first place in the Carolina League Southern Division.

The Mudcats continue their series with the Dash on Saturday night at 6 p.m.
