Chicago White Sox sign Kendall Graveman for 3 years

The Chicago White Sox and the free agent reliever Kendall Graveman they’re closing in on a three-year deal worth around $ 24 million, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.

Graveman’s addition would boost a White Sox bullpen that already includes Craig Kimbrel and Liam Hendriks. Star closers are set to make a combined $ 29 million in 2022.

The 30-year-old Graveman had a 1.77 ERA with 61 strikeouts and 10 saves in 56 appearances between the Houston Astros and the Seattle Mariners last season.

According to Javier González, Graveman was MLB’s best reliever until the deadline, when he went from Seattle to Houston. Although it continued to have some dominance, its metrics fell. That added to the fact that he had saved 10 of 12 chances in SEA, in HOU 3 BS in 3 SV Sit. But undoubtedly a good signature for CHW.

Now the bullpen of the Houston Astros has the same weakness as at the beginning of the season, since his acquisitions to strengthen the last innings leave the team, Graveman has already signed with another team and Yimi García is a free agent.
