Chicago White Sox designate Dallas Keuchel for assignement

CHICAGO -- The White Sox designated left-handed pitcher Dallas Keuchel for assignment on Saturday, two days after he gave up six runs in two innings to the Boston Red Sox.

Keuchel, 34, had a 7.88 ERA this season after compiling a 5.28 mark last year. After signing a three-year, $55.5 million deal with the White Sox before the 2020 season, he finished fifth in Cy Young voting with a 1.99 ERA.

The White Sox don't have much room in their rotation when all their arms are healthy. Veteran Johnny Cueto has pitched well in his return to the majors while righty Lance Lynn is close to returning from a knee injury that has sidelined him since spring training.
