Dallas Keuchel went the distance Tuesday, holding the Indians to two runs in a 4-2 victory.
It's the first time this season that Keuchel has allowed more than one run in a start, but something tells us he'll be OK with this effort. Both runs he allowed came on solo homers from Austin Jackson and Michael Brantley, and he should have allowed a third to Jason Kipnis if not for Josh Reddick scaling the wall to pull it back. Keuchel, who threw 122 pitches Tuesday, will take a 1.22 ERA into this weekend's outing versus the A's. He's back in Cy Young form. Apr 25 - 9:24 PM

Date:

Dallas Keuchel pitched seven innings of one-run ball and struck out seven in defeating the Angels on Wednesday.

Keuchel is 3-0 with a 0.96 ERA. He's not throwing any harder than usual or getting more strikeouts, but everything so far against him has been hit on the ground and scooped up by an infielder. He'll get the Indians next time out.
Apr 20 - 12:02 AM

Dallas Keuchel limited the A's to one run over seven innings in a victory Friday.

Keuchel outlasted Kendall Graveman in the battle of sinlerballers. He allowed four hits, walked two and struck out seven in the gem. Nevertheless, his ERA skyrocketed to 0.86. He'll get the Angels next time out.
Apr 15 - 1:45 AM

Dallas Keuchel allowed one run on two hits through seven innings against the Royals on Saturday.

He walked just one and struck out four. One of the two hits was a solo home run by Cheslor Cuthbert to account for the only run charged to Keuchel. He left the game with a 2-1 lead but that was quickly blown by Luke Gregerson, who gave up six runs in the next inning. Today's fine outing comes on the heels of seven scoreless innings in his first start. In total he has a 0.64 ERA with 8 strikeouts in 14 innings.
Apr 8 - 9:58 PM

Dallas Keuchel allowed two hits over seven innings and combined with two Astros relievers on a 3-0 shutout victory over the Mariners on Monday.

Keuchel looked stronger this spring than he did during the bulk of last year, but there wasn't much indication in March that his first outing of April would be this stellar. Both hits he allowed were singles, and he got 11 outs on the ground, compared to just one through the air. Luke Gregerson and Ken Giles finished up the three-hitter.
Apr 3 - 11:17 PM

Dallas Keuchel surrendered three runs in 4 2/3 innings Tuesday in a no-decision against the Marlins.

Keuchel seemed happy afterwards. He gave up a homer to Giancarlo Stanton and six hits overall, but he also got seven outs on the ground to go along with his four strikeouts. He doesn't appear to be a likely Cy Young contender right now, but since he's healthy again, he should be a mixed-league asset.
Mar 28 - 5:13 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced Friday that Dallas Keuchel will be the team's Opening Day starter.

The only thing that would've prevented this is Keuchel showing up to camp with his shoulder still bothering him as it did last season. Instead, he's said he feels great and it's shown with a 1.50 ERA over three Grapefruit League outings. Keuchel should be in line for a bounce-back season if he can stay healthy.
Mar 24 - 11:16 AM

Dallas Keuchel yielded two runs in five innings Wednesday against the Twins.

Keuchel had the sinker working today and his velocity has been decent, if not quite up to 2015 standards. He should return to functioning as a solid mixed-league starter this year.
Mar 22 - 4:37 PM

Dallas Keuchel held the Braves scoreless for four innings in his start Friday.

After sitting out the first two weeks, Keuchel has pitched seven scoreless innings in his two starts. He still needs to pick up a tad more velocity, but he's right about where the Astros wanted him to be.
Mar 17 - 4:28 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched three innings of shutout ball Sunday against the Nationals.

The Astros decided to be careful with Keuchel after his bout with shoulder inflammation last year, so this was his spring debut today. He had a pretty easy time, though his velocity was down a tick from what one expects from him. It'll be something to watch over the rest of the month.
Mar 12 - 5:18 PM

Dallas Keuchel (shoulder) has been cleared to make his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday against the Nationals.

It's the next step for Keuchel after he threw 39 pitches over two-plus innings in a simulated game on Tuesday. According to Astros manager A.J. Hinch, the plan is for him to throw two innings. Keuchel is being brought along slowly this spring after he pitched through what he recently described as "major inflammation" in his rotator cuff last season. The good news is that he's feeling much better now.
Mar 8 - 10:11 AM

Dallas Keuchel (shoulder) threw 39 pitches over two-plus innings in a simulated game on Tuesday.

Everything went well, as Keuchel said his body and arm felt "good." Nothing has been officially announced, but the southpaw said he's ready to make his spring debut. The Astros are being careful with Keuchel this spring after he dealt with shoulder inflammation last season while posting a 4.55 ERA over 26 starts, but he still has enough time to get ready for Opening Day.
Mar 7 - 10:47 AM

Dallas Keuchel (shoulder) will throw a simulated game on Tuesday.

Keuchel is behind the other Astros starters in camp following last season's shoulder issues. The hope is that he could be ready to make his Grapefruit League debut by the end of next week. Barring any setbacks, Keuchel should still have enough time to get ready for Opening Day.
Mar 3 - 10:00 AM

Brian McTaggart of MLB.com writes that Dallas Keuchel (shoulder) "could be in line to appear in his first Grapefruit League game in the next 10 days or so."

There is no definitive date for Keuchel to make his debut, but he is getting closer. On Wednesday, he threw his second session of live batting practice. That went off without issue. The Astros are playing it safe with the 29-year-old southpaw following a season in which he dealt with shoulder inflammation and struggled to the tune of a 4.55 ERA. Assuming no setbacks, Keuchel should be able to put in enough spring starts -- even with the late debut -- that he will be ready to roll on Opening Day.

Dallas Keuchel will throw another live batting practice session on Wednesday.

Kuechel last threw BP on Sunday. The Astros are bringing him along slowly this spring after his shoulder issues from last week, but manager A.J. Hinch said Wednesday that he's progressing nicely. It's not clear when he'll make his spring debut, but the Astros have mapped out a plan for him to be ready for Opening Day.
