The Chicago White Sox are a team that has had ups and downs so far in 2022. As a result, they have mostly been a .500 team. One thing they have done that is good so far this season is DFA Dallas Keuchel. He was awful and they finally cut bait with him.
Keuchel ends his 2022 White Sox season with a 7.88 ERA and 2.156 WHIP. His horrid stats all lined up to a -1.2 WAR which is just bad. The White Sox were far off with him in the lineup and they have some unnecessary losses because of it.
The good news is that the White Sox clearly showed that they are serious about winning. Whether they start doing that or not is a different story but we can only hope. There are plenty of other players deserving of this Dallas Keuchel DFA treatment.
Nobody should be safe when the expectations going into the season were what they were. These are the three players most deserving of a DFA:
It is time for the Chicago White Sox to end the Josh Harrison experiment.
The Chicago White Sox should already acknowledge that Josh Harrison isn’t it for them. They thought that he might be able to come in on the cheap and provide a solid second baseman for the squad as they look to take the next step.
So far, he has been bad. In 99 at-bats, he has a .172 batting average and a .518 OPS. He doesn’t have a home run yet and only three RBIs. That is not going to cut it for what should be a championship-caliber team.
This team needs to do even more to show that they are serious about competing. Cutting Josh Harrison and letting someone better take his spot would really go a long way. It is sad but he just doesn’t give enough offense.
