Dallas Keuchel is an interesting option for the Chicago White Sox. He spent his entire career before last year with the Houston Astros. He then signed with the Atlanta Braves halfway through the year after he wasn’t able to get a deal done. He sort of fell victim to a hard offseason led by Bryce Harper and Manny Machado taking forever to sign with their new teams. He had a pretty good year with the Braves who went on to win the National League East.
He has a lot of career accolades for a guy who might not be as highly touted as some of the other starters on the market. He won the Cy Young in 2015, is a two-time all-star, and a 2017 World Series Champion. He is also a superb defensive pitcher as he has won the Gold Glove for the position four times. This is a good pitcher that would look really nice on the White Sox.
With his experience, he would be able to come in and help the White Sox get to the next level. He knows how to pitch in a big game so he can help some of the younger guys who don’t know how to handle the pressure yet. Veteran starters are very important and a guy like Keuchel coming to this young team would really help. Maybe the White Sox have a chance at some of these guys and maybe they don’t but the bottom line is that any of them would come in and bring some deep playoff experience to a young team.
