CHICAGO -- Top draft pick Carlos Rodon made quick work of his Triple-A debut Tuesday, giving up one run over three innings for the Charlotte Knights.

The White Sox weren't looking for any more than 60 pitches from the left-hander and were satisfied with his 55-pitch night. He gave up his one earned run and one hit, with three walks and three strikeouts against the Gwinnett Braves.

Rodon was the No. 3 overall selection, and is the first player from this June's draft to reach the Triple-A level this season. There remains a strong possibility the 21-year old will find his way to the major leagues when rosters expand in September.

Before being promoted to Charlotte, Rodon had a 1.96 ERA with 15 strikeouts in four outings (two starts) at Single-A Winston Salem. He also appeared briefly in the Arizona Rookie League after agreeing to a $6.582 million signing bonus.
