Carlos Rodon Signs With San Francisco Giants

Free agency has just started and a major name is off the market. Carlos Rodon is headed to San Francisco. Who will he be joining?

The second domino has fallen and as predicted pitching will be the first dominoes to fall. Carlos Rodon has decided on a destination.

Carlos Rodon Signs

Jon Heyman is reporting the contract details as follows:

The 29-year-old starting pitcher has been in high demand since he decided to test free agency. Coming off of an All-Star appearance and fifth place Cy Young finish, Carlos Rodon was in for an enormous payday. Rodon posted a 2.65 FIP and 183 ERA+ in 132 2/3 innings pitched across 24 starts for the Chicago White Sox. Additionally, Rodon showed his usual top notch control by striking out 185 batters while only walking 36.

Rodon just finished off a contract in which he was paid $3 million in 2021. At $22 million per year, Carlos Rodon is getting paid for his hard work.

San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Giants have proven they are in it to win it for 2022. At the beginning of the offseason, prior to the lockout, the Giants signed one new starting pitcher and kept two familiar faces. Anthony DeScalfani was signed for three years and $36 million while Alex Wood accepted a two year, $25 million offer. Alex Cobb is a new face joining the rotation with a two year, $20 million deal.

There is no doubt the Giants treat pitching as the number one priority. However, this offseason, they also turned their sights to leadership and a veteran presence. First basemen Brandon Belt recently signed a one-year, $18.4 million offer solidifying a veteran infield.

The Giants are not only poised for a playoff run but for a World Championship run.
