Carlos Rodon, Giants Reportedly Agree to 2-Year, $44M Contract in Free Agency

Former White Sox starting pitcher Carlos Rodon has agreed to sign with the San Francisco Giants on a two-year contract worth $44 million, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The White Sox didn’t give Rodon an $18.4 million qualifying offer prior to the MLB lockout that lasted 99 days, which allowed him to test the open market.

Rodon was named to his first All-Star Game in 2021. He posted a team-best 2.37 ERA with 185 strikeouts in 132.2 innings pitched, tying for the team lead with 13 wins.

The giants are brilliant at these kind of deals. I’m sure we’ll find the Cards came in second place

Yeah, he was the one SP I was hoping the Cardinals would go after, but those $$$/yr seem too rich for the Cardinals' taste.

They gave $44M to Matz, but for four years.

Why didn't the White Sox extend the QO to Rodon?

Sigh. I wanted to believe the Twins were vaguely interested in competing this year, but obviously (based on their free-agent acquisitions) they are not. Oh well.
