Spring Training Notes: Everyone says Carlos Rodon is fine

Carlos Rodon tossed live batting practice Wednesday and said he felt good, although there’s still no timetable for him appearing in a Cactus League game as the White Sox continue to monitor his progress after he experienced arm fatigue a season ago.
