The Sox added the pitching depth they so sorely need. You remember last week when Carlos Rodón went on the IL and doctors recommended Tommy John Surgery? Yaaaa, Rick Hahn said they’d have to “look outside the organization for depth.” It looks like this could be it. Ross Detwiler has a 4.36 career FIP while posting a 1.4 bWAR. That isn’t very good. If this was 2010, oh baby, would people be writing about it! It’s not. Cleveland lit up Manny Banuelos today, as did the Red Sox on Saturday. It might be the end of his time in the rotation. Right now, it just seems like the Sox have a revolving door of desperately cheap starting pitchers. If you want to know how to solve this, check out my Wheeling and Dealing blog from last week.
In addition to that, the Sox can still sign Dallas Keuchel. This would forfeit a second round pick, but to be honest, second round picks as of late haven’t turned out to be as valuable as the White Sox front office thinks. I can bet you a thousand Dunkin’ Donits (see below) that Keuchel is better than whoever the White Sox will draft in the second round this season.
