The Chicago White Sox are wasting their time with Dallas Keuchel in 2022.
In 2020, Dallas Keuchel was one of the best pitchers in the American League. He finished with better numbers than Lucas Gilito who was also magnificent that year as well. The difference is that Lucas Giolito is getting better and better while Keuchel declines hard.
The only person who doesn’t know that Dallas Keuchel is declining is Dallas Keuchel too as he makes rude comments about defense and the manager taking him out too early the only time he does have a good start. They need to lose this guy as soon as possible.
As mentioned before, Dallas Keuchel is significantly better paid than Vince Velasquez and he has a higher reputation than him so Velasquez is the odd man out of the rotation right now. They both need to go but Keuchel might need to go sooner.
It is sad to see what has happened as he is a former Cy Young Award winner and World Series champion but the White Sox can’t be using this guy in a division title race. They have very little chance to win when he is on the mound.
If there is a team out there willing to take a prospect to eat Keuchel’s contract or give him a chance to start with low pressure, the White Sox should do it. If he keeps pitching as bad as he has for the last year and a half, they should just DFA him. Enough is enough.
