Astros and LHP Dallas Keuchel avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.25 million contract.
It's a record one-year deal for a first-time arbitration-eligible player. Of course, the bump in salary is well earned after Keuchel held a 2.47 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 213/49 K/BB ratio across 226 innings in 2015 on his way to the American League Cy Young award. Jan 15 - 2:40 PM

Darek Braunecker, the agent for Dallas Keuchel, told MLB Network Radio that the Astros and Keuchel have not discussed a long-term contract this offseason.

In late November, the Houston Chronicle reported that the Astros were expected to open long-term contract discussions at some point this winter. It appears they haven't started into those yet, which begs the question whether such talks will actually take place before the start of spring training in February. Braunecker indicated that while the two sides did engage in some preliminary contract discussions during the 2015 season, they weren't of an advanced nature. The AL Cy Young winner held a 2.47 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 213/49 K/BB ratio across 226 innings while working to a 20-8 record during the past campaign.

The Astros are expected to discuss a long-term contract with Dallas Keuchel this offseason.

Keuchel is entering his first year of arbitration. Astros beat writer Evan Drellich called Keuchel a "hard comp," which means it's difficult to compare him to other players because of his age, style and unusual career arc. That could have an impact on negotiations. Either way, the Cy Young winner should be in for a big raise this offseason.

Dallas Keuchel was named the winner of the 2015 American League Cy Young Award by the Baseball Writers Association of America on Wednesday.

Keuchel won the Cy Young on the strength of a stellar 2015 campaign that included a 2.47 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 213/49 K/BB ratio over 226 innings. He finished the year with a 20-8 record. The 27-year-old southpaw is the third Astro to win the award, joining Mike Scott (1986) and Roger Clemens (2004). David Price placed second for the pitching honor, while Sonny Gray rounded out the Top-3.

The Baseball Writers Association of America has announced Sonny Gray, Dallas Keuchel and David Price as finalists for the 2015 American League Cy Young award.

Keuchel showed in 2015 that his breakout 2014 campaign was no fluke, as he took it to another level with a 2.47 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 213/49 K/BB ratio across 226 innings. He might be the favorite to take home the hardware.

Dallas Keuchel was once again outstanding as the Astros took control of the ALDS with a win over the Royals on Sunday, scattering just five hits over seven innings of one-run ball.

The odds-on favorite to take home the American League Cy Young award, Keuchel racked up seven strikeouts on the afternoon while walking three. The only blemish on his day was a solo home run off the bat of Lorenzo Cain in the fourth inning. It was a brilliant followup to his six shutout innings against the Yankees in the Wild Card game to put the Astros in this position. The next time he takes the hill will be in Game 1 of the ALCS should the Astros advance.

Dallas Keuchel is scheduled to start Game 3 of the ALDS against the Royals on Sunday.

Keuchel already pitched the Astros into the postseason when he tossed six shutout innings against the Yankees in Tuesday's AL Wild Card Game. On short rest, at that. He'll have a chance to try to conjure some October magic once more on Sunday. In Game 3, he's scheduled to pitch against the Royals' Edinson Volquez.

Dallas Keuchel held the Yankees off the scoreboard over six innings as the Astros won Tuesday's American League Wild Card Game 3-0.

Pitching on three days' rest, Keuchel looked a little amped up in the first inning but quickly settled in, ultimately yielding just three singles and one walk while striking out seven. He ran into a little trouble in the sixth with a couple runners reaching, but he got out of it and the bullpen shut down the Yanks over the final three frames. The Astros will play in Kansas City on Thursday in Game 1 of the ALDS, with Keuchel on track to pitch Game 3 when the series goes to Houston.

Dallas Keuchel will start against the Yankees in Tuesday's American League Wild Card Game.

It'll be the first postseason appearance for the 27-year-old left-hander, who registered a stellar 2.48 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 216/51 K/BB ratio across 232 regular-season innings. Keuchel will face off against Masahiro Tanaka on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium as the Astros try to advance to their first ALDS.

Dallas Keuchel cruised to his 20th win after allowing two runs in six innings Friday against the Diamondbacks.

The Astros scored five runs in the first two innings and 21 overall, so this was Keuchel's easiest win of the year. With a 2.48 ERA and 216 strikeouts in 232 innings, he remains right in the thick of the Cy Young race. It will come down to him and David Price.

Dallas Keuchel was brilliant in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Rangers, striking out 10 and allowing just one run over seven innings.

This was Keuchel's fifth game with double-digit strikeouts. He also walked two and allowed just two hits over his seven sterling innings. The 27-year-old southpaw's brilliant 2015 campaign could eventually lead to an AL Cy Young award. A 19-8 record, 2.47 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 213/49 K/BB ratio across 226 innings will win that award for you on occasion. The Diamondbacks will be kind enough to host him in his final start of the season next weekend.

Dallas Keuchel improved to 18-8, giving up only one run over 7 2/3 innings to beat the Angels on Monday.

Keuchel relented his only run in the sixth inning on a pair of singles followed by a ground out. He allowed six hits overall along with a walk and six strikeouts. The lefty has a superb 2.51 ERA with a 1.02 WHIP and a 203/47 K/BB ratio over 219 innings. Keuchel will pitch the Astros' final home game of the regular season against the Rangers.
Mon, Sep 21, 2015 11:24:00 PM

Dallas Keuchel was smoked for nine runs over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

The Astros saw the Rangers overtake first place in the AL West on Tuesday, and they were counting on Keuchel to stop the bleeding, but it was pretty much over after the Rangers opened up the game with a six-run first inning. The lefty gave up 11 hits overall while striking out five and walking none. Keuchel's previous career-high four runs allowed in a game was seven, which he has done five times but not since September 2013. He still has great numbers on the season, boasting a 2.56 ERA with a 1.03 WHIP and a 197/46 K/BB ratio over 211 1/3 innings. Keuchel will try to rebound in a home start against the Angels.
Wed, Sep 16, 2015 10:56:00 PM

Dallas Keuchel was charged with a loss to the Angels on Friday after giving up three unearned runs in six innings.

All of the runs followed Keuchel's own error in the second. It was the first error of the year for the 2014 Gold Glover and just his second in three years, but it couldn't have come at a worse time, as the Astros went on to lose 3-2.
Sat, Sep 12, 2015 01:19:00 AM

Dallas Keuchel was sharp in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Twins, allowing three runs on five hits over eight innings.

This was Keuchel's fourth double-digit strikeout game this season. The Twins did their damage in the form of a trio of solo home runs by Brian Dozier, Eduardo Escobar and Aaron Hicks. The home run ball hasn't been much of an issue for him in 2015, though, as even with the three surrendered on Sunday, he's allowed just 13 bombs in 200 2/3 innings. With his 2.99 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 185/44 K/BB ratio, the 27-year-old southpaw is in the midst of a Cy Young-worthy campaign. He'll look to continue this strong open to September when he takes to the road to duel with the Angels in his next scheduled start.
