Chicago White Sox are continuing to make moves in what turned out to be a particularly busy offseason for them. According to several reports, White Sox signed free agent pitcher Dallas Keuchel.
The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports that Keuchel and White Sox agreed to a three-year deal, worth $55.5 million. The contract also has a fourth-year option that comes with $18.5 million in compensation for the 31-year-old left-hander.
Keuchel was a free agent prior to the 2019 MLB season as well but opted to wait deep into the year in order to sign with a playoff team. He ended up getting a one-year deal, worth $13 million from Atlanta Braves.
Keuchel ended up playing 19 games in the regular season, having an 8-8 record with a 3.75 ERA and 91 strikeouts. He also helped the Braves advance to the National League Divisional Series, where they lost to St. Louis Cardinals.
Before signing Dallas Keuchel, White Sox brought in All-Star catcher Yasmani Grandal, outfielder Nomar Mazara, catcher James McCann, and pitcher Gio Gonzalez. The team also inked All-Star first baseman Jose Abreu to an extension.
