One of the biggest free-agent splashes the White Sox have made in recent memory was bringing in Dallas Keuchel to pitch for them. He is for sure going to be a big part of this rotation going forward. The bottom end of the rotation might need some figuring out but the top is certainly set. Keuchel should slot right in there at the top right behind Lucas Giolito.

Keuchel has had a tremendous career. It is now controversial but he was a member of the 2017 Houston Astros World Series team. He was also a Cy Young award winner in 2015 so there is no doubt that this guy brings some experience to this young group. He can bring some knowledge on how to be successful in a squad that doesn’t have that much experience in meaningful games.

You shouldn’t expect Keuchel to bring that Cy Young level of play to the White Sox because that might not be realistic. What you can expect, is a great pitcher who is a serious upgrade over what they have had over the last few seasons. This is going to be a good staff and Keuchel is going to be right in the middle of it.
