Dallas Keuchel earned a win by hurling 6 1/3 innings of four-run baseball on Friday in Kansas City.
Keuchel struck out only two batters and also walked two. He gave up 11 hits, two of which escaped the yard. It was not a very encouraging outing for his bedraggled fantasy owners. The win improves his record to 4-9 with a 5.35 ERA. That is not at all what his owners paid for in drafts this Spring. His 3.44 xFIP hints at better things on the horizon. Jun 25 - 1:48 AM

Dallas Keuchel threw seven innings and allowed two runs in a no-decision against the Reds on Saturday.

Keuchel gave up just five hits without walking a batter and left with the lead, but the Astros bullpen blew his chance at his fourth win. Keuchel struck out six in the affair. He's shown some signs of figuring it out in recent weeks, but he's still not the Cy Young winner we saw a year ago, clearly. Fantasy owner have little choice but to hold onto him in hopes that he resembles something close to that in short order. Keuchel will carry a 5.32 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into Friday's start at the Royals.
Jun 18 - 7:47 PM

Dallas Keuchel scuffled through Sunday's loss to the Rays, allowing five runs (four earned) on five hits over five innings.

Keuchel struck out nine and managed to keep the Rays off the scoreboard until the fifth inning. That frame would be a nightmare for the defending AL Cy Young winner, as Keuchel surrendered five runs in the inning keyed by RBI singles off the bats of Mikie Mahtook and Evan Longoria. The 28-year-old southpaw holds a 5.54 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 81/29 K/BB ratio across 87 2/3 innings (14 starts). He will face the Reds in a home start next time he takes the mound.
Jun 12 - 4:08 PM

Dallas Keuchel was victimized by the long ball in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers, surrendering four runs on 10 hits over 7 1/3 innings of work.

Keuchel struck out eight and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. Bobby Wilson smacked a solo homer off of him in the fifth inning and Ian Desmond belted a go-ahead two-run shot in the eighth. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner now sits at a disappointing 3-8 on the season with a 5.44 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. He'll look to turn things around on Sunday against the Rays in Tampa Bay.
Jun 7 - 11:00 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched six innings and allowed three runs Thursday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

Keuchel has given the Astros quality starts four of his last six times out. Unfortunately, he was so bad in the other two that his ERA is still sitting at 5.50 for the year. At least he seems to be making some progress of late. Still, his velocity needs to pick up a bit for him to take a big step forward.
Jun 2 - 5:12 PM

Dallas Keuchel recovered from a shaky start to limit the Angels to two runs over seven innings in Saturday's 4-2 win.

Keuchel gave up back-to-back solo homers to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols in the first inning but settled down to put up six zeroes in his final six innings of work. The southpaw gave up just one other hit, didn't walk a batter and struck out five on the night. It ranked among his best starts of the season, improving him to 3-6 with a 5.58 ERA and 1.47 WHIP through 11 outings. We'll see if Keuchel can use the start as a springboard or if it was an aberration when he takes on the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
May 29 - 1:07 AM

Dallas Keuchel surrendered seven earned runs over six innings Sunday in a loss to the Rangers.

Yet another brutal outing from the reigning 2015 American League Cy Young Award winner, who now stands 2-6 with a 5.92 ERA through 10 starts this year. He struck out six Sunday and issued only one walk, but the Rangers made a whole lot of hard contact. Keuchel will look to straighten things out in his next start on the road against the Angels.
May 22 - 4:56 PM

Dallas Keuchel registered a quality start Tuesday, allowing three runs over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the White Sox.

It wasn't a dominant performance, as Keuchel gave up six hits and walked three, but he'll take the positives where he can get them in what has been a frustrating first month and a half. With the no-decision, the southpaw remains 2-5 with a 5.43 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in nine starts. He's still getting ground balls but is making too many mistakes that are being hit too hard. Owners should be reminded that it's still mid-May and that patience is a virtue. Keuchel will next try to right the ship Sunday against the Rangers.
May 18 - 12:25 AM

Dallas Keuchel allowed eight runs on 10 hits over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

Keuchel gave up two home runs among his 10 hits, and he also walked three on the night. It was a disappointing turn after he showed some signs of improvement his last time out. With the loss, the southpaw dropped to 2-5 with a 5.58 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in eight starts. He's a much better pitcher than recent results suggest, and he'll look for better days Wednesday at the White Sox.
May 12 - 11:00 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched well in Saturday's 10-inning, 3-2 loss to the Mariners, taking a no-decision despite hurling seven innings of two-run ball.

Keuchel's results have been among the more troubling of the early season, but even if he failed to earn a win against the Mariners, it was at least a step in the right direction. He kept the walks down (just one of those) and struck out eight (tying his best total this season). Fantasy owners should stay the course despite Keuchel's early 4.70 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. He will try to back up the nice outing with another of the same species when he heads to Fenway for his next scheduled start.
May 7 - 11:01 PM

Dallas Keuchel dropped to 2-4 after giving up five runs in 4 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Twins.

Keuchel's velocity remains down significantly, and he's walked 18 batters in 37 innings. Those two factors would seem to suggest he's dealing with an injury of some sort, but he hasn't admitted to anything. On the plus side, he's still getting grounders and swings and misses. He's not nearly hopeless yet.
May 3 - 12:00 AM

Dallas Keuchel failed to rev in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, surrendering five runs on six hits over six innings.

Keuchel punched out five and walked two on the evening. He kept the Mariners off the scoreboard until the fourth inning, when Nelson Cruz hit an RBI single. That would have been survivable. A four-run fifth by the M's, less survivable. With the loss, Keuchel falls to 2-3. He has allowed 11 runs in his last 12 innings and will try to right the ship in a home start against the Twins in his next outing.
Apr 27 - 2:27 AM

Dallas Keuchel was abysmally ineffective in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Rangers, allowing six runs on 13 hits over six innings.

That Keuchel managed to throw six innings is impressive in its own way, given how often he had runners on base. The Rangers struck for three runs in the first inning before pulling back for solitary runs in the second, third and fifth innings. Even with Thursday's trying start, the ace southpaw still holds a 3.71 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 22/11 K/BB ratio across 26 2/3 innings. He will look for easier times on the mound when he takes to the lonesome trail to face the Mariners in Seattle next time out.
Apr 21 - 10:51 PM

Dallas Keuchel scattered five hits over eight scoreless innings against the Tigers on Friday en route to his second victory of the season.

Keuchel racked up four strikeouts on the night while walking only one. It was far and away the finest start of the year for the reigning American League Cy Young award winner. It's certainly impressive that he was able to hold down an offense that mashes left-handed pitching and had averaged over six runs per game heading into Friday. Keuchel will look to further improve upon his 2.18 ERA and 1.21 WHIP when he squares off against the Rangers in Texas on Thursday.
Apr 15 - 11:03 PM

Dallas Keuchel allowed three earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Brewers.

Keuchel again struggled with his command, issuing six walks in the frustrating outing at Miller Park. He had an excuse for the four walks he issued in his debut last week at a cold and wet Yankee Stadium, but the roof was closed on Sunday afternoon in Milwaukee. Keuchel will try to find his groove next time out against the Tigers. It'll be a home start at the roof-ready Minute Maid Park.
