Former White Sox pitcher Dallas Keuchel accepts minor league deal with Diamondbacks



CHICAGO (CBS/AP) –Former White Sox starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel is back on the job after agreeing to a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The southpaw was recently released by the White Sox after going 2-5 with a 7.88 ERA in eight starts. He was in the final season of a three-year, $55 million contract.

Keuchel, 34, won the AL Cy Young Award with the Houston Astros in 2015 and is also a two-time All-Star and a five-time Gold Glove winner. He’ll try to regain his old form by reuniting with pitching coach Brent Strom, who was with the Astros in 2015 and joined the D-backs in the offseason.

The Diamondbacks are looking for more options in their starting rotation after right-hander Humberto Castellanos went on injured reserve with an elbow injury.

If Keuchel is added to the 40-player roster, Arizona would only be responsible for a pro-rated share of the major league minimum of $700,000, and the White Sox would remain responsible for the remainder of his $18 million salary. dollars this year. The Sox also owe a $1.5 million buyout of a 2023 option.
