Rodón supports wife's social media use: ‘She's a big Carlos fan'


There’s no bigger fan of Giants starting pitcher Carlos Rodón than his wife, Ashley Rodón, and she isn't shy about defending him on social media. 

Ashley has used Twitter this season to call out missed strike calls from umpires during the 29-year-old’s starts and his initial All-Star snub, even though he is one of the top pitchers in the NL when it comes to WAR. 

But Carlos is fully supportive of Ashley's passion online as the Giants make their push for the playoffs in the second half of the season. 

“I just let her do what she wants, you know?” Carlos told NBC LX at MLB All-Star Media Day. 

“She’s her own person, and she’s, you know, she knows what to say and what not to say, and she’s just a big she’s a big team supporter and a big Carlos fan. Let’s put it out. She’s a Giants fan through and through.”

Whether his wife's campaigning helped or not, the Giants' pitcher was selected to replace Milwaukee Brewers' Josh Hader on the NL All-Star roster. However, Rodón won’t participate in Midsummer Classic due to a split fingernail/blood blister

After talking it over with manager Gabe Kapler, he opted out of participating in the game. The Giants are currently a half-game out of the last wild-card spot, so they cannot let the injury lead to anything that will keep Rodón out for any significant time.
