The Chicago White Sox are officially in agreement with Dallas Kqeuchel. He is going to come to Chicago and be a part of a pretty good rotation.

The Chicago White Sox have done it. They have added Dallas Keuchel via free agency to come to join the young pitching rotation. He will join the likes of Lucas Giolito, Michael Kopech, Dylan Cease, Gio Gonzalez and Reynaldo Lopez to form a pretty good starting rotation. This is the move that White Sox fans have been waiting for all offseason long. It was no secret that the organization was looking to add some pitching and now they have done that.

They signed Gonzalez earlier in the week but that wasn’t a move that satisfied the fans. It looks like a much better move now that they have added a guy like Keuchel to the mix for the next three years. It is a 55.5 million dollar deal with a 4th-year option that would make it 4 years at 74 million. It is the perfect deal for a White Sox team that needs an inning eating guy in the middle of the rotation starter. He isn’t the pitcher that he once was back in his Houston Astros days but he is still very good and will be a solid add for the White Sox.

This rotation appears to be very good now. It remains to be seen what their ceiling is because they still need to play the games but it figures to be a big improvement over what they were in 2019. This is a team that also figures to score lots of runs in 2020 because they have a very good starting lineup of position players who can hit.

Keuchel has won the Cy Young, a World Series, four Gold Glove Awards, and is a two-time all-star. That is a lot of experience to bring to a very young White Sox team. This team is looking to turn the corner in 2020 and the additions they have now made should be able to help them do just that. This is awesome news for Chicago White Sox fans.
