Dallas Keuchel pitched well in earning a no-decision against the A's on Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Keuchel did walk three, but overall, this was another step in the right direction for the embattled ace. He was actually pitching a shutout into the seventh, but was lifted with one out after running into trouble. Ken Giles would surrender a two-run double to Ryon Healy to bring home the two runs on Keuchel's line. The 28-year-old southpaw will carry a 4.70 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 110/40 K/BB ratio (126 1/3 innings) into a home start against the Yankees next time he toes the rubber. Very quietly, Keuchel has been pulling his act together after a horrific start. He has allowed more than two earned runs just once in his last six outings.
Jul 20 - 2:01 AM

Dallas Keuchel struck out six while allowing two runs over six innings in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

Keuchel gave up five hits and a walk in the effort. He's now ripped off three straight wins to improve to 6-9, lowering his ERA to 5.02. Keuchel has one more start before the All-Star break to try to keep the winning streak going, with that start coming Sunday against the Athletics.
Jul 5 - 11:09 PM

Dallas Keuchel turned in a quality start in Wednesday's win over the Angels, yielding three runs (two earned) on six hits over six innings.

Wednesday's start was fine enough, but Keuchel remains one of the more disappointing players in all of the fantasy landscape. Even in this "fine enough" start, he struck out just four and walked three. For the season, the reigning AL Cy Young winner holds a 5.13 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 93/34 K/BB ratio across 107 innings. A home start against the Mariners shows next on his schedule as he looks to try to drop his ERA back under 5.00.

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.
