Statistically, it was a rough season for Dallas Keuchel.

The White Sox's starting pitcher was 9-9 with a 5.28 ERA, he lost his rotation spot late in the year and was left off the playoff roster.

 

Keuchel did play his usual stellar defense when he was on the mound, and the 33-year-old lefty was named the American League Gold Glove Award winner among pitchers Sunday night.

En route to winning the fifth Gold Glove of his career, Keuchel was credited with a career-high 12 defensive runs saved. That's the highest total for a major-league pitcher since Mark Buehrle also saved a dozen runs for the Marlins in 2012.

Rodon a free agent:

Carlos Rodon did not receive an $18.4 million qualifying offer from the White Sox by Sunday's deadline.

The left-handed starting pitcher is a free agent.

Battling injuries for the fifth year in a row, Rodon managed to go 13-5 with a 2.37 ERA and 185 strikeouts in 132⅔ innings. He pitched a no-hitter against Cleveland on April 14 and made his first All-Star team.

Rodon was bothered by shoulder discomfort during the second half of the season and was limited to 43 innings pitched.
