Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports that the Padres have interest in Dallas Keuchel.
However, Lin notes that Keuchel's asking price is "currently prohibitive" for the Padres. The veteran left-hander has been connected to numerous teams -- the Nationals, Phillies, Braves, Reds and Blue Jays among them -- but might not sign for a while given that he's a Scott Boras client and the best free agent starter left on the market.

Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports that the Nationals are interested in Dallas Keuchel but are "leery of giving him the five- or six-year deal he seeks."

The Nats already handed out a six-year, $140 million deal to Patrick Corbin, so they seem unlikely to pony up for Keuchel even after unloading Tanner Roark's contract. Anibal Sanchez and Wade Miley have also been connected to Washington and seem like more realistic targets.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Phillies are in on Dallas Keuchel and Zach Britton.

The Phillies missed out on Patrick Corbin last week, but they continue to be connected to the remaining big names on the market. Nightengale also hinted in his report that the team is still trying to lure either Manny Machado or Bryce Harper. This offseason could still go in a number of directions for Philadelphia.
Dec 11 - 1:14 PM

Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that the Braves "have not had any discussions" on free agent left-hander Dallas Keuchel.

This report is quite a contrast to what we heard from Jon Heyman of FanCred Sports, who wrote Sunday that the Braves seem to have Keuchel atop their wishlist. We'll soon find out if that was just an attempt to get the Phillies to increase their offer. The Reds have also been mentioned as a possible fit for the southpaw.
Dec 10 - 12:06 PM

According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, Dallas Keuchel looks to be the top free agent target for the Braves.

Heyman notes that the Braves are still looking for one starting pitcher, one reliever and one outfielder, after already inking Josh Donaldson to a free agent deal. Keuchel, 30, has already received interest from the Phillies, and the Reds have seemingly made him a top priority as well, so the bidding could be hotly contested here. Keuchel is considered the top starting pitcher remaining on the market after Patrick Corbin signed his six-year deal with the Nationals.
Dec 9 - 10:34 PM

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that the Phillies "will consider" free agent starter Dallas Keuchel.

Keuchel wasn't (and maybe still isn't) the team's first choice, but the Phils got out-bid for Patrick Corbin and there might not be any top-tier left-handed starters available for trade this winter. They've reportedly reached out to the Giants about Madison Bumgarner, but there are doubts about San Francisco's willingness to part ways with the 29-year-old ace. Keuchel, who turns 31 in January, posted a 3.74 ERA and 153/38 K/BB ratio over 204 2/3 innings (34 starts) this past season with the Astros. He's also said to be drawing heavy interest from the Reds.
Dec 4 - 7:11 PM

According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, the Blue Jays have interest in free agent southpaw Dallas Keuchel.

Their level of interest remains unclear at the moment, and Heyman notes that the Jays have also been connected to J.A. Happ. The Reds are reportedly "all over" Keuchel at the moment and seem willing to overpay if necessary to secure the 30-year-old southpaw.

Dec 2 - 4:42 PM

Jon Heyman of Fancred hears that the Reds are "all over" free agent starter Dallas Keuchel.

Heyman notes that it can be difficult to attract big-ticket pitchers to the hitter-friendly confines of Great American Ball Park, but he writes that the Reds "seem to have some funds this year, and they are said to love Keuchel." The 30-year-old left-hander posted a 3.74 ERA and 153/38 K/BB ratio over 204 2/3 innings (34 starts) this past season with the Astros. His soft-contact and groundball-based approach to getting outs would suit the environment in Cincinnati.
Nov 29 - 2:45 PM

Astros LHP Dallas Keuchel rejected a one-year, $17.9 million qualifying offer.

The Astros will pick up a draft pick assuming Keuchel departs as a free agent. Keuchel has regressed since he won the American League Cy Young award in 2015, but he's still been quite good over the last three seasons and won't have trouble landing a nice multi-year contract this winter.
Nov 12 - 5:24 PM

Astros extended a one-year, $17.9 million qualifying offer to LHP Dallas Keuchel.

Keuchel hasn't been the same pitcher over the last three seasons since his American League Cy Young-winning campaign, but he's still been plenty effective and the decision to give him a qualifying offer was a no-brainer. He will reject the offer and the Astros will net a draft pick if he winds up elsewhere.
Nov 2 - 5:52 PM

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that the Astros plan to make Dallas Keuchel a $17.9 million qualifying offer.

Heyman adds that Houston will not make Marwin Gonzalez a qualifying offer and they are undecided on whether to make Charlie Morton a qualifying offer. Keuchel will turn 31 in January but shouldn't have trouble landing a fairly lucrative multi-year contract this offseason. He made $13.2 million in 2018 in his final year of arbitration eligibility.
Oct 29 - 5:46 PM

Dallas Keuchel allowed two earned runs over five innings Tuesday in the Astros' ALCS Game 3 loss to the Red Sox.

Keuchel surrendered both of those runs in the top of the first inning, after giving up hits to each of the first three batters he faced. The left-hander mostly settled in from there, but he finished with zero strikeouts for the first time in 2018 and was out-dueled by Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi. The official loss went to Joe Smith, who yielded a go-ahead homer to Steve Pearce in the top of the sixth inning. Roberto Osuna was hammered for five earned runs in the top of the eighth.
Oct 16 - 9:14 PM

Astros' manager A.J. Hinch confirmed Sunday that Dallas Keuchel will get the start in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Red Sox.

This had been speculated all along, but is now official. The 30-year-old hurler gave up two runs on five hits over five innings in a victory over the Indians in the ALDS. He's 4-2 lifetime with a 3.28 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across nine appearances (eight starts) in his postseason career.
Oct 14 - 4:34 PM

Dallas Keuchel limited the Indians to two runs over five innings Monday as the Astros closed out their ALDS series with an 11-3 win.

The Indians picked up a run in the third inning on a Michael Brantley sacrifice fly, although they could have had more if Francisco Lindor swung away instead of laying down a sacrifice bunt. Naturally, Lindor slugged a 446-foot bomb in his next trip to the dish. That gave the Tribe a lead and Keuchel was pulled, but he got off the hook when the Astros rallied late. Keuchel would appear to be in line to pitch Game 3 of the ALCS.
Oct 8 - 6:00 PM

In his final tune-up of the regular season on Saturday, Dallas Keuchel surrendered one run on five hits and a walk over his three innings of work in a no-decision against the Orioles.

The one run that he did allow came on an RBI single by Austin Wynns in the second inning. The 30-year-old southpaw wraps up the regular season posting a 3.74 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 153/58 K/BB ratio across 204 2/3 innings. He'll join Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole as a very formidable trio atop the club's rotation in the postseason.
