Carlos Rodon’s disappointing season isn’t getting any better.
The White Sox sent the former N.C. State star to Charlotte for a rehab assignment on Monday, and the left-hander struggled in his start against the Louisville Bats. Rodon gave up five hits, three runs and two walks over 3 2/3 innings in a 6-2 Knights loss. Rodon has been on the disabled list since July 6 with a sprained left wrist. He’s 2-7 with a 4.50 ERA for the White Sox.
Louisville battered three Charlotte pitchers for 13 hits. Reliever Kameron Loe gave up eight hits, two walks and three runs over 3 1/3 innings.
Jason Coats had three hits for Charlotte and raised his batting average to .340.
The teams continue their series at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday.
