White Sox to Call Up Top Pitching Prospect Carlos Rodon

White Sox to Call Up Top Pitching Prospect Carlos RodonPhotos.come/Thinkstock(CHICAGO) -- Reinforcements are coming for the Chicago White Sox. The team plans to call up top pitching prospect Carlos Rodon to the Majors on Monday. Rodon was the third overall pick in the 2014 draft by the White Sox. The 22-year-old Rodon had a successful yet brief minor league stint. He appeared in 11 games, making eight starts through the White Sox minor league system. "There will still be butterflies when the debut comes, whatever day that is," Rodon said at the end of spring training. "But it makes it a little easier I guess because I've faced big-league hitters before. But it counts a little more when that happens." He wound up going 1-0 with a 3.15 ERA. Rodon also performed well in the spring, going 2-0 with a 3.06 ERA, five walks and 21 strikeouts in 172/3 innings. Despite the White Sox high hopes for the talented left-hander, the team will begin his Major League career with him pitching out of the bullpen at first to help ease his transition to facing Major League hitters.

Phil Hughes Excited for Opening Day Start Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Twins pitcher Phil Hughes will make the first Opening Day start of his career on Monday when Minnesota takes on the Detroit Tigers. Hughes will have a tough counterpart in David Price, but is looking forward to it. "It's very cool," Hughes said this week about making the Opening Day start.  "It's something that I never had the opportunity to do in my career."  "I've been a part of a lot of Opening Day's and to see that kind of atmosphere is going to be great to be a part of." Hughes was 16-10 last season with a 3.52 ERA in his first season in Minnesota. "It's a little bit different," Hughes said of the adjustments to pitching on Opening Day.  "You have to time your routine.  I'll just kind of play it by ear, it should be a good atmosphere in Detroit." Hughes spent seven seasons with the New York Yankees before coming to Minnesota last year. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

White Sox Agree to Contract Extension with Adam Eaton Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(GLENDALE, Ariz.) -- The Chicago White Sox are doing all they can to lock up their core players, the latest being outfielder Adam Eaton. The team announced they've agreed on a five-year, $23.5 extension with the speedy outfielder. "We have a kid here who we think is going to be an essential part of our success over the next couple of years and is a rare piece in this game, a top of the order player who plays in the middle of the diamond, plays a premium position and brings you plus offense and the ability to get on base and run," general manager Rick Hahn said. "It's an important piece to any successful club and we're happy that we can work out something that extends his stay in a White Sox uniform to potentially seven years." Eaton came over to the White Sox from the Arizona Diamondbacks via trade last offseason. In 123 games for Chicago last season, Eaton hit .300 with 76 runs scored and 15 stolen bases.

White Sox Sweep Twins on Viciedo Walk-Off

White Sox Sweep Twins on Viciedo Walk-Off Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- A less than impressive season for Chicago saw a bright spot on Saturday. The White Sox swept a doubleheader with the Minnesota Twins at home, winning Game 1, 5-1, before a walk-off homer in Game 2 notched a 7-6 victory. Jose Quintana paced the White Sox (68-80) in the opener with 13 strikeouts while Alexei Ramirez homered in the third to open the scoring. His 15th long ball of the year gave Chicago a 2-0 lead in the third inning before the team tacked on three more in the eighth. Meanwhile, Quintana (8-10) walked just two batters in seven innings of work. The nightcap was a little more stressful for the White Sox as Minnesota (62-86) opened up a 4-0 lead in the first inning. After Trevoe Plouffe's RBI single started the scoring, Oswaldo Arcia slammed a three-run shot off Logan Darnell. Chicago did battle back though, Avisail Garcia's three-run blast in the bottom of the first made it a one run game before rookie Jose Abreu tied things up with his 34th homer of the year. The White Sox rallied again in the seventh, tying the game on a Conor Gillaspie single, before the Twins took the lead in the ninth. Kurt Suzuki doubled off Jake Petricka to give Minnesota a 6-5 lead, and seemingly the win. However, Abreu worked a 15-pitch walk from closer Glen Perkins, starting a rally. Pinch runner Jordan Danks was retired on a fielder's choice from Garcia, but Dayan Vicideo launched a walk-off, two-run homer to left for the victory. Chicago has now won four straight games for just the second time all season, the first since May 4-7. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Angels Acquire Second Baseman Gordon Beckham from the White Sox

Angels Acquire Second Baseman Gordon Beckham from the White Sox Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Gordon Beckham-era is over in Chicago as the White Sox have traded the second baseman to the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named later. "This trade, quite frankly, was more about creating an opportunity for some of our young players to come up here, get some playing time and become part of this next core of White Sox players that we have put together over the last several months and are going to continue to work on over the next several months," White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said. Beckham was the eighth overall pick by the White Sox back in 2008 and much was expected of him once he made his MLB debut back in 2009. Even though he'd been the team's primary second baseman since being called up, he never quite lived up the lofty expectations placed on him. In 739 games with the White Sox, Beckham hit just .244 with 61 home runs and a .306 on base percentage. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
