MLB Rumors: 3 Potential Destinations for SP Carlos Rodon

Carlos Rodon is a 29-year-old lefty starter who is drawing a ton of interest on the open market. He spent last seven seasons as a member of the Chicago White Sox and all signs are pointing to the southpaw leaving Chi-city. The White Sox have some interest in bringing him back but it sounds like they won't be able to keep up to some of the offers from other teams.

3 Teams to Watch for to Sign Rodon

Texas Rangers: The Rangers have shifted their focus back to their rotation and look to add to the already signed Jon Gray. Rodon would be a great fit for the ball club and is someone one their radar. Last season he finished with a 13-5 record with a 2.37 ERA over 24 starts. Rodon struck out 185 batters over 132.2 innings and was one of the league's best pitchers. The Rangers are trying to get back to the promised land and with the additions of Corey Seager and Marcus Semien to their lineup, adding Rodon to Gray would be a great start to improving their rotation.

Detroit Tigers: The Tigers are sitting on their wallets just waiting to pounce. They've already made a mega-offer to Carlos Correa and would love to add Rodon to their rotation. It's going to come down to dollars and cents as the southpaw will receive offers from better ball clubs but the Tigers may outspend the rest of those interested. Tigers' manager A.J Hinch is a huge fan of Rodon's game and let's see if the two sides can make something work.

Los Angeles Angels: The Angels will be spending much more money on their rotation this offseason and once able look for them to sign a big name, and that name could be 'Carlos Rodon'. The lefty would help balance out their starting five and at only 29 is someone who can be there as a stable piece for years to come. The team doesn't want to waste the talents of Mike Trout any longer and are getting serious this winter. Rodon makes a ton of sense for the Angels and don't be surprised if a contract is announced before the start of next season.
