The Chicago White Sox and left-hander Carlos Rodon have agreed on a one-year, $3 million deal, according to multiple reports on Saturday.

The White Sox declined to tender Rodon a 2021 contract in December. But now they are set to bring back the player they selected No. 3 overall in the 2014 draft.

The 28-year-old Rodon has never lived up to that billing while going 29-33 with a 4.14 ERA in 97 appearances (92 starts) with the team from 2015-20. He was 0-2 with an 8.22 ERA in four appearances (two starts) last season.

Rodon was Chicago’s Opening Day starter in 2019 but pitched just seven times before undergoing Tommy John surgery in May.
