White Sox's Rodon named AL Player of the Week
After pitching a no-hitter last against the Indians last Wednesday, Carlos Rodon was named American League Player of the Week.
In his second start of the season, Rodon retired the first 25 Cleveland batters in order before hitting Roberto Perez in the foot with one out in the ninth inning.
He got the last two outs and recorded the 20th no-hitter in White Sox history.
Rodon, who also became the first pitcher in major-league history to throw a no-hitter within two years of having Tommy John surgery (May 15, 2019), is 2-0 this season and he's not allowed a run over 14 innings while striking out 16 and holding opposing hitters to a .045 average (2-for-44).
The 28-year-old lefty is scheduled to start against Cleveland's Zach Plesac Tuesday night in a rematch of last week's no-hitter.
