The White Sox announced that southpaw Dallas Keuchel has been activated off the 10-day injured list in advance of his scheduled start Saturday night against the Reds.  Right-hander Jonathan Stiever was optioned to the club’s alternate training site to create roster space.

Keuchel was placed on the IL due to back spasms, and since his placement was retroactive to September 7, he will return having missed only a couple of days past the 10-day minimum.  The injury wasn’t thought to be overly serious in the first place, and Keuchel will now get to make at least one tune-up start before the White Sox begin their postseason run.

Time, TV, streaming info on Tampa Bay Lightning's potential Game 5 Stanley Cup clincher vs. Dallas Stars

  Time, TV, streaming info on Tampa Bay Lightning's potential Game 5 Stanley Cup clincher vs. Dallas Stars The Tampa Bay Lightning, holding a 3-1 series lead against the Dallas Stars, are in position to capture their first Stanley Cup since 2004 as they play the Dallas Stars in Game 5 Saturday night in the Edmonton, Alberta, bubble.

Signed to a three-year, $55.5M free-agent deal last winter, Keuchel has thus far been a big plus for the White Sox, posting a 2.19 ERA over his first 53 1/3 innings on the South Side.  ERA predictors (3.19 FIP, 3.84 xFIP, 4.42 SIERA) are naturally less impressed with Keuchel due to his lack of strikeouts, as he has only a 5.4 K/9.  As always, however, Keuchel is generating a ton of grounders (56 percent grounder rate), and this season has done a better job than ever of keeping the ball in the park.  The left-hander has a league-best 0.3 HR/9 this year, a massive improvement over the 1.3 HR/9 he posted over 112 2/3 innings with the Braves in 2019.
