Héctor Luis Rondón (born February 26, 1988) is a Venezuelan professional baseball pitcher in the Chicago Cubs organization.

Professional career[edit]

Cleveland Indians[edit]

Rondón signed as an international free agent with the Cleveland Indians. He had Tommy John surgery in 2010 and fractured his elbow in 2011.[1]

Chicago Cubs[edit]

Rondón was selected by the Chicago Cubs from the Indians in the 2012 Rule 5 Draft.[2] He made the Cubs' 2013 Opening Day roster and made his major league debut on April 3.

After struggles by Cubs closer José Veras early in the 2014 season, Rondón was named the new Cubs closer.
