Rodon (elbow) has exceeded expectations in his rehab process, according to pitching coach Don Cooper, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Rodon underwent Tommy John surgery back in May, which is expected to keep him out until some point in the second half this season. It's unclear if Cooper's comments indicate that he's on a faster timeline than expected or if he's simply throwing quite well for where he currently is in the process. He threw a side session Monday.
Rodon (elbow) was able to play catch Wednesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
