Swats 24th homer
DHChicago White Sox
September 29, 2018
Rondon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 12-4 loss to the Twins.
ANALYSIS
Rondon's homer was his sixth in the majors and 24th overall after hitting 18 at Triple-A Charlotte. He started at shortstop Friday, but the White Sox are talking about getting the infielder comfortable in the outfield during the offseason. There will be an opening in the outfield in 2019, and his power surge this year puts him in a position for a role next season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
After spending the bulk of the 2016 campaign at Double-A San Antonio, the Padres gave Rondon a quick taste of Triple-A El Paso before he debuted with the big club in September. If he reaches his ceiling at the plate, Rondon may be a steady .280 hitter down the road, but his carrying tools are currently his defense and his arm. Rondon chipped in with 13 steals in 17 attempts at Double-A, but he did not successfully swipe a big in 32 games between El Paso and San Diego. The Padres had Javier Guerra penciled in as their long-term shortstop, but a disappointing age-20 season in the California League leaves his long-term outlook cloudy. Barring the addition of competition from outside the organization prior to spring training, Rondon may get an opportunity to compete for an Opening Day roster spot. It's likelier he will return to El Paso to begin 2017 with the hope of earning a midseason callup if the position remains an area of need.
There is a glaring hole at shortstop in San Diego, one which Rondon could fill at some point in 2016, but he may be destined to be more of a utility type long-term with Javier Guerra looking like the future at the position for San Diego. While Rondon's defense is certainly adequate, there is very little pop in his bat, as evidenced by his .388 career slugging percentage in the minors. He has made up for it to a certain extent with an advanced eye at the plate for his age, but Rondon struggled against more advanced pitching after his move up to Double-A San Antonio in mid-June before an elbow injury ended his season. Tommy John surgery was ultimately deemed necessary, carrying with it a 3-to-4 month recovery timetable, but the Padres still felt Rondon was worthy of protection from the Rule 5 draft, so they added him to the 40-man roster in November. If he does earn a job eventually, Rondon will likely only be on the fringes of consideration in NL-only leagues.
There is some question regarding Rondon's long-term future, as he may be more of a utility player than a regular shortstop, although his defense at the position grades out well. Spending his entire 2014 season at High-A, Rondon hit .327/.362/.418 with no homers, 24 RBI and eight steals (in 14 attempts) at Inland Empire before putting together a .301/.371/.380 line (3-for-4 in stolen-base attempts) in 37 games at Lake Elsinore after being acquired by the Padres as part of the Huston Street deal in July. As he's advanced, Rondon has continued to show a steady hit tool despite a complete lack of power. He'll likely begin the season at Double-A and the trades of top shortstop prospects Trea Turner and Jace Peterson in the offseason could open a path to the majors.
