Rodon al­ready com­fort­able

Chicago Sun-Times - - SOX BEAT -

A year ago, he was the prized prospect. This time around,

Car­los Rodon reg­is­tered a free and easy, al­most ho- hum three score­less in­nings. “I just know what I’mdo­ing a lit­tle more af­ter one year of spring train­ing,’’ Rodon said af­ter hold­ing the Padres to a sin­gle and a walk while strik­ing out two. “A lit­tle more com­fort­able, just go­ing out there and work­ing on stuff. Fast­ball, change, try­ing to get bet­ter on those things and bring it into the sea­son.’’ It was Rodon’s first start af­ter his strong fin­ish in 2015, when he posted a 3.75 ERA as a rookie. His fo­cus in 2016 is three- fold: “Com­mand the zone, cut down on walks and try to go long in the game.’’
