While the entire Chicago White Sox starting rotation has been phenomenal this year, the success has been driven by a pair of veterans: Lance Lynn and Carlos Rodon. As this team ramps up for a postseason run, the health of their two front-line starters if of utmost importance.

On Tuesday, the White Sox got some very promising news on Rodon's latest injury update. He's been sidelined temporarily with shoulder fatigue, dating back to before the Field of Dreams Game on Aug. 12. But, all signs point to a prompt return for the AL Cy Young award candidate.

Carlos Rodon Injury Update

According to reports, the veteran left-hander threw from 90 feet on Monday and is feeling "very good." Rodon even added after the throwing session that he has his eyes set on a return to Chicago's rotation next week.

This is a best-case scenario for Chicago. After all, the Cy Young award candidate has been phenomenal in his career-best season. On the year, Rodon is pitching to a stifling 2.38 ERA and 0.957 WHIP across 19 starts. He's recorded a decision in every start while the White Sox have maintained a 12-7 record in his starts.

Currently, Chicago looks like a lock to win the AL Central division thanks to their 69-50 record and 11.0-game lead. The White Sox have the third-best odds to win the World Series at +600, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
