Rodon says he is going to start throwing on Monday. It’s unclear when he might he might be ready for games, but he is expected to begin this season on the DL.

Rodon was selected by Chicago with the No. 3 pick in the 2014 draft. He is 20-21 with a 3.95 ERA in three major league seasons.

General manager Rick Hahn says Friday the team will go through the process with Rodon ”as cautiously as we need to be.”
