Chicago White Sox SP Hector Noesi has been moved to the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Noesi loses what little value he had in deep AL-only leagues with this move out of the starting rotation. Carlos Rodon ($4,200, 8.4% of cap), who will make his second start against the Oakland Athletics Friday, has extreme strikeout upside. However, the Pale Hose may be careful with how much he's used this year, and he'll be a risk/reward play at FantasyScore based on the matchups.

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon isn't guaranteed to stay in the starting rotation after a solid start over the weekend and with SP Hector Noesi struggling, and manager Robin Ventura won't commit to anything past the team's series this week against the Milwaukee Brewers. A lot will depend on how much the starters pitch this week and if Noesi is needed in relief. Rodon's innings limit this year remains a big part of the equation.
Fantasy Tip: Rodon's ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) role seems to be at a crossroads right now, but it's likely that he'll stay in the rotation after being stretched out from a relief role for his start last weekend. He clearly has more upside and strikeout ability than Noesi, making him highly attractive to fantasy owners in all leagues. Rodon should be owned everywhere by now, and he'll gain more value if he sticks in the rotation. At FantasyScore, he's a fine matchup play for his strikeout abilities.

Chicago White Sox SP Hector Noesi (back) left in the second inning against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, May 9, with a lower-back contusion and is considered day-to-day.
Fantasy Tip: Noesi ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been struggling this season, and this injury could open the door for Carlos Rodon ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) to become a regular in the rotation. Rodon could make a nice upside play at FantasyScore because of his strikeout potential.

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks and SP Hector Noesi have allowed a combined nine homers and a 1.47 WHIP in their eight starts, which covered only 39 1/3 innings.
Fantasy Tip: The whole White Sox rotation is struggling, but you have to wonder if Danks ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) and Noesi ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will have a short leash. With Carlos Rodon ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) being stretched out, one or both of these pitchers could lose a starting spot. It's best to avoid both.

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon, who is equipped with a devastating slider and who has been compared with Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw and San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner, will initially pitch out of the bullpen, but he could find himself in the starting rotation as soon as the series against the Detroit Tigers May 5-7. A heavy workload at North Carolina State last year makes him an injury risk, but he could still replace SPs John Danks or Hector Noesi in the rotation and throw a total of around 175 to 180 innings in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Rodon is currently unavailable at FantasyScore because he'll initially pitch in relief. In all other fantasy leagues, Rodon should be acquired immediately and stashed in the meantime. There's a good chance he's already owned in AL-only formats.
