Dallas Keuchel punched out five batters and allowed just one hit and no runs in 3 2/3 innings on Saturday against the Nationals.

The only hit he allowed was a single by Bryce Harper. Keuchel's spring got off to a late start after he battled a foot injury early in camp. This was just his second start but he already looks poised to get the season rolling. The former Cy Young winner went 14-5 with a 2.90 ERA in 23 starts for the Astros last year.

Making his spring debut, Dallas Keuchel gave up two runs in 1 2/3 innings against the Marlins.

Oddly enough, the Astros chose to announce during the game today that Justin Verlander, not Keuchel, would start on Opening Day. It's not a surprising decision, but to announce it on the day that Keuchel is pitching was a weird choice. Keuchel, the 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner, had started on Opening Day the previous three years.
Mar 5 - 5:04 PM

Dallas Keuchel will make his Cactus League debut on March 5 against the Marlins.

Keuchel suffered an undisclosed injury in his left foot that he battled through during the second half of the 2017 season and aggravated during the club's World Series celebration. He's fully recovered and ready to go now though, just slightly behind the other starting pitchers in camp. He is scheduled to make five starts this spring.

Astros and LHP Dallas Keuchel avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $13.2 million contract.

Keuchel was arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter before he enters his walk year. The former Cy Young winner put up a 2.90 ERA over 23 starts for the Astros last season.
Jan 12 - 4:40 PM

Dallas Keuchel (foot) said Saturday that he has been out of his walking boot for a week now and has already resumed throwing.

The left-hander pitched with an undisclosed injury to his left foot during the second half of the 2017 season and may have aggravated that injury during the club's World Series victory parade. Keuchel noted that he expects to be pitching off of a mound in early February and shouldn't have any limitations in spring training.
Jan 6 - 11:49 AM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dallas Keuchel has hired Scott Boras as his new agent.

The 29-year-old hurler is preparing to hit free agency following the 2018 season, and this could be an indication that he's planning on testing the open market. Keuchel is currently recovering from a minor left foot sprain and is expected to be fully healthy for the start of spring training.

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, Dallas Keuchel "pitched with an undisclosed injury to his left foot during the second half of the season and throughout [the Astros'] run to the World Series title."

Keuchel told TMZ cameras earlier this month that he injured his foot when he slipped during the Astros' World Series victory parade, but the issue actually dates back to the middle of the summer. Perhaps he then reaggravated it while celebrating with his teammates in downtown Houston. A source told Crasnick that the symptoms suggest a case of plantar fasciitis, which can be a chronic thing for athletes. Nonetheless, the expectation is that Keuchel will be 100 percent for the beginning of spring training in February.

Dallas Keuchel suffered what the Astros are referring to as a minor left foot sprain when he slipped during the team's World Series victory parade.

Oops. TMZ Sports first reported news of the injury and had video with Keuchel wearing a walking boot. The boot is considered precautionary, though, and the team has indicated that the ailment isn't a big deal. Barring something unforeseen, Keuchel is expected to be ready to go for the beginning of spring training.

Dallas Keuchel struggled in a no-decision against the Dodgers in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday, surrendering four runs (three earned) on five hits in his 3 2/3 innings of work.

Keuchel walked two and struck out four in the ballgame. The Dodgers got to him early in this one, loading the bases in the first inning with a single and a pair of walks, leading to a three-run inning. It's likely that Keuchel is done for the season now, though he could conceivably be utilized out of the bullpen should the Series go to a decisive Game 7.

Astros' manager A.J. Hinch confirmed Friday that Dallas Keuchel will start Game 5 of the World Series against the Dodgers.

That means that Justin Verlander will pitch a potential Game 6 if necessary and Lance McCullers would get the call should the series go to seven games. The Astros will send Charlie Morton to the hill on Saturday, looking to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series.

Dallas Keuchel allowed three earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Tuesday as the Astros lost Game 1 of the World Series against the Dodgers.

Keuchel wasn't bad, but Chris Taylor popped him for a solo shot to lead off the bottom of the first inning and Justin Turner added a two-run dinger in the bottom of the sixth. Houston's offense managed just one run against Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles bullpen as the Astros fell 3-1. Keuchel may get the call in Game 4 of the World Series, depending on how the next couple of games play out.

Dallas Keuchel will start Game 1 of the World Series for the Astros on Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

Keuchel is the obvious choice with Justin Verlander having pitched on Friday. He will be taking the ball on an extra day of rest when he opposes Clayton Kershaw at Dodger Stadium, while Verlander will go in Game 2 Wednesday on regular rest. The Dodgers have not announced who will pitch for them in Game 2, but it will likely be Rich Hill.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch has already made it known that it will be an "all hands on deck" approach for the club's pitching staff in Game 7 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Saturday.

"I'll use every pitcher on the staff if we have to to get 27 outs" Hinch told reporters after Friday's victory. Presumably, that means the entire staff minus Justin Verlander who fired 99 pitches over seven shutout innings in Friday's win, but stranger things have happened. Keuchel has already announced that he's available for Saturday's elimination game.
Sat, Oct 21, 2017 10:56:00 AM

Dallas Keuechel gave up four runs in 4 2/3 innings for Houston in a 5-0 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday in Game 5 of the ALCS.

Keuchel did strikeout eight and walked just one, but he also gave up seven hits while not making it out of the fifth innings. In his career, Keuchel has dominated the Yankees, but he just didn't have his best stuff or command on Wednesday. It's possible we'll see Keuchel pitch in Game 7 out of the pen on two-days rest, but this very well could have been his last start of the 2017 season.
