Dallas Keuchel agrees to 3-year contract with White Sox
The Chicago White Sox have made a big addition to their starting pitching rotation.
The White Sox and Dallas Keuchel have agreed to a deal, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported on Saturday. The deal is for three years and worth $55.5 million.
Keuchel was a big free agent in last year’s class but went unsigned until midway through the year after not finding an offer to his liking. He ended up signing a 1-year, $21.1 million prorated deal with the Atlanta Braves in June.
Keuchel, 31, made 19 starts for the Braves last season. He went 8-8 with a 3.75 ERA in 112.2 innings, striking out 91. He went through a dominant stretch in August where he won five straight starts and allowed just four runs.
The White Sox recently added Gio Gonzalez to their rotation, joining emerging ace Lucas Giolito. They also have Carlos Rodon and Michael Kopech rehabbing from Tommy John surgeries. If all their players get healthy, they could have a nice staff in 20201.
