The White Sox lost 16 billion won in the air
Dallas Keuchel (34), who is in the process of being released from the Chicago White Sox, eventually becomes free. No team could afford him, whose remaining annual salary is about 13 million dollars.
New York media “SNY” said on the 1st (Korea Standard Time) that left-hander Keuchel from Cy Young Award will pass Waver and qualify for FA. On the 29th of last month, Keuchel was excluded from the 40-man roster after being processed by the White Sox as a transfer designation (DFA). The team that wants him can be taken through a Waver period claim, but the remaining salary was too large to take him.
Keuchel, who signed an FA contract with the White Sox in December 2019 for a three-year guarantee of $55 million (about KRW 69.2 billion), is the last year of his contract. There were also team options for next season (20 million dollars a year, 1.5 million dollars a year for buyouts), but the White Sox cleared up the Keuchel two months after the opening of this year.
With an annual salary of 18 million dollars (22.4 billion won) this year, the remaining annual salary alone is 13 million dollars (about 16.2 billion won). There was no team that would take Keuchel with the remaining salary, and the White Sox would pay for it all. Keuchel will be an FA status that allows him to freely sign with any team with the lowest calculated salary to work. After being released from the New York Mets, some teams are expected to use Keuchel at a low price like infielder Robinson Cano, who signed a minimum salary contract with the San Diego Padres.
Keuchel, who made his debut with the Houston Astros in 2012, has stood out since 2014. In 2015, he pitched 232 innings in 33 games and received the American League Cy Young Award with 20 wins, 8 losses, 2.48 ERA, and 216 strikeouts. The pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin referred to when he tried to install a cutter after returning from a shoulder injury is not a Kyclo fastball pitcher, but he is a technician type with excellent pitching, control, and ground ball guidance
Keuchel, who also played as a leading pitcher for Houston and won the 2017 World Series, however, his performance fell ahead of the FA. Without receiving the expected offer, he signed a one-year contract with the Atlanta Braves in June 2019 and took the FA exam again 파워볼사이트
He succeeded in winning a three-year FA contract with the White Sox by showing the possibility of a rebound in Atlanta. During the 2020 Corona Shortening Season, he announced his revival as fifth place in the Cy Young Award with 6 wins and 2 losses in 11 games and a 1.99 ERA.
However, his performance fell again with 9 wins and 9 losses and a 5.28 ERA in 32 games (30 starts) last year, and he left the White Sox this year after leaving the worst number in his career. The White Sox, which invested a lot of money, lost a lot of money
