Carlos Rodon has confirmed today that he will return to the pitch. The player is set to debut for the New York Yankees on Tuesday night at TD Bank Ballpark. He will wear the Somerset Patriots colors as the team begins a week-long series with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.

The first game between the Double-A Yankees, the Somerset Patriots, and the Fisher Cats starts at 7:05. Thus, fans can witness a truly high-level MLB pitcher in action during this Minor League match.

What happened to Carlos Rodon

Carlos Rodon suffered a forearm injury in spring training and has been battling both the arm injury and a back issue that has kept him from pitching in a game this season.

Carlos Rodon is seen as one of the most talented players on the Yankees roster. In the late off-season, he signed a massive six-year deal worth around $162 million, hoping the two-time All-Star would settle in as the Yankees’ number 2 starter behind the ace Gerrit Cole.

It’s worth noting that the Somerset Patriots have been the home for many Yankees players to recover and be ready to play in the American Baseball League.

What to expect from Carlos Rodon

In his career, Carlos Rodon owns a 56-46 record with a 3.60 ERA and 947 strikeouts over 847.1 innings pitched in 152 career games (147 starts). Over the last two seasons, Carlos Rodon has gone 27-13 with two complete games, a 2.67 ERA, and 422 strikeouts in 55 starts.

Carlos Rodon is now the seventh Yankee to rehab in Somerset this season, joining the likes of Harrison Bader, Josh Donaldson, Ian Hamilton, Tommy Khanle, Luis Severino, and Giancarlo Stanton.

Rodon has not made his comeback to the first team, but the Yankees Nation eagerly awaits his debut with the iconic jersey in MLB. Therefore, as he does not return to the big stage, the Pinstripes Nation will provide the latest updates on his performance in the Minor League.
