Chicago White Sox Place Former Yankees' Top Prospect On Waivers

The Chicago White Sox have made a significant decision by placing former top New York Yankees' prospect Deivi Garcia on waivers.

Garcia, once celebrated for his promising abilities, has faced a tumultuous journey in Major League Baseball.

Initially dazzling with the Yankees in 2020, his performance dwindled over subsequent seasons, culminating in his recent struggles with the White Sox.

With an ERA surpassing 10.00 in the 2024 season and limited successful outings, the team has opted to explore new directions for their bullpen, marking an uncertain future for Garcia.

Over his four-year career, the 24-year-old holds a 5.02 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, with 65 strikeouts across 71.2 innings and 30 appearances.

In response to Garcia's inconsistency, the White Sox are shifting their strategy by integrating more experienced pitchers.

Brad Keller, a veteran who has battled through injuries, including shoulder surgery and thoracic outlet syndrome, has been called up from Triple-A Charlotte.

Keller's recent performances suggest a potential resurgence, offering the White Sox a chance to stabilize their pitching lineup as they aim to enhance their competitiveness.
