Dallas Keuchel went the distance in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday, giving up three runs over eight innings.
The three runs all came in the second after a single and two doubles to start the inning. Those doubles were the only extra-base hits given up by Keuchel in the contest, and he walked none. The complete game was his fifth of the year, making him the first Astros pitcher to get to five since Mike Hampton and Darryl Kile finished with seven and six, respectively, in 1997. The wins haven't been there lately, but Keuchel remains one of the AL's better starters with his 3.12 ERA and 125/40 K/BB ratio in 24 starts. Aug 21 - 3:35 PM

Dallas Keuchel yielded three runs over seven innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday

Keuchel gave up five runs over six innings last time out against the Rangers, but he got back on track in this one. He allowed six hits and three walks while striking out eight batters. The southpaw hadn't struck out more than seven batters in a game since May 19, so this was nice to see. An unexpected success story, Keuchel now owns a 3.11 ERA and 120/40 K/BB ratio over 156 1/3 innings this season. He'll face the Yankees on the road next.

Dallas Keuchel allowed five runs on six hits over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

Keuchel walked three while striking out four in the outing. It was a clunker after three stellar starts his last three times out, as he'd given up just two runs over his previous 23 innings before Sunday's loss. He fell to 10-8 with a 3.07 ERA in the defeat. He'll hope to get back on track Friday at the Red Sox.
Aug 10 - 6:42 PM

Dallas Keuchel held the Phillies to one run over seven innings on Tuesday, but took a no-decision as the Astros eventually lost in 15 innings.

Keuchel was denied his 11th win of the season despite the strong effort. He limited the Phillies to five hits and a walk while striking out four. The lefty continues to rank among the game's better hurlers, sporting a 2.89 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 108/34 K/BB ratio. He'll toe the slab against the Rangers in a home start on Sunday.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Astros have taken Dallas Keuchel off the trade market.

Keuchel threw his fourth complete game of the season on Wednesday against the A's, allowing only four hits and one run over nine innings. The 26-year-old left-hander owns an impressive 2.97 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 104/33 K/BB ratio through 136 1/3 total frames this season. There was no good reason for Houston to trade him.

Dallas Keuchel tossed his fourth complete game of the season in Wednesday's 8-1 rout of the A's.

Keuchel was fantastic, allowing only four hits (and one run) over his nine frames. The only run that Oakland scored was on a Josh Donaldson solo homer in the top of the second inning. Keuchel struck out five and now boasts a 2.97 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 104/33 K/BB ratio through 136 1/3 innings this season. The Orioles have expressed interest in acquiring him before Thursday's July 31 trade deadline, but Houston seems likely to keep the blossoming 26-year-old southpaw.
Jul 30 - 5:07 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles are interested in the Astros' Dallas Keuchel and Jarred Cosart.

The O's don't want to give up one of their better pitching prospects for a rental like Jon Lester and instead are focused more on players that they'd control longer. Both Keuchel and Cosart have yet to reach arbitration, so they'd fit the bill. The Orioles have also dealt with the Astros in the past, having acquire Bud Norris at the deadline last season.
Jul 30 - 10:01 AM

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow told FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal Monday that he's willing to trade one of the team's starters if he can "get back a big-league piece, preferably a bat."

Rosenthal lists Dallas Keuchel, Collin McHugh and Jarred Cosart as starters that could be on the move for the right price. "We do seem to have an excess of pretty good young starters so we wouldn’t rule anything out," Luhnow said. "We’d have to get back a big-league piece, preferably a bat, in a package that makes sense for the future and present." As Rosenthal points out, Keuchel, McHugh and Cosart all have fewer than two years of major-league service time, so the Astros will want something pretty good in return.
Jul 28 - 6:41 PM

Dallas Keuchel suffered a tough luck loss against the Marlins on Friday, allowing just two unearned runs on nine hits over his seven strong innings.

He punched out seven without issuing a walk on the evening. It was certainly an encouraging start for Keuchel, who appears to be completely over his wrist injury. A defensive miscue by Kike Hernandez ended up being responsible for a pair of runs scoring in the seventh inning, and that was the only offense in the ballgame. He'll bring a 3.11 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 99/30 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Athletics.
Jul 25 - 11:19 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched 6 2/3 innings and allowed four runs Wednesday in a win over the Rangers.

Keuchel got the win, but it was another start that didn't measure up to his performances prior to his wrist injury. He struck out three and walked one against a mediocre offense tonight, and if not for a couple of nice plays from Enrique Hernandez, the outing could have gone considerably worse. How much the wrist was a factor is hard to say, but it remains a source of concern.
Jul 9 - 11:39 PM

Dallas Keuchel had his worst start of the season Friday against the Angels, giving up five runs and 13 hits in five innings.

Rather than play it safe and DL Keuchel after he came down with wrist inflammation, the Astros had him skip just one start. In his return tonight, he wasn't his usual self, striking out just one batter and allowing four more hits than he had in any previous start this season. We'll see what happens next, but it seems unlikely that he's 100 percent.
Jul 5 - 12:48 AM

Dallas Keuchel (wrist) is expected to start on Friday in Anaheim.

Keuchel missed his last outing with left wrist inflammation. He had been pegged to return on Thursday, but the Astros have decided to let Brett Oberholtzer make one more start and given Keuchel an extra day. The left-hander boasts a 2.78 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over 15 starts this season.
Jul 2 - 10:23 AM

Dallas Keuchel (wrist) is hoping to be ready to start on Thursday in Anaheim.

Keuchel had to be scratched from Saturday's outing due to left wrist inflammation. He underwent an MRI and X-ray and has already felt improvement after taking some antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. "I’ve never really had something like this, so I was kind of nervous and the training staff was telling me it was nothing to really be concerned about," Keuchel said.
Jun 29 - 2:04 PM

Dallas Keuchel won't start Saturday because of swelling in his left wrist, the Astros announced.

No word yet on what's causing the swelling. It's in his throwing arm, so it seems like a significant source of concern. The Astros have rearranged their rotation so that Brett Oberholtzer will start Saturday against the Tigers.
Jun 28 - 12:41 AM

Dallas Keuchel allowed five runs -- four earned -- over eight innings in a complete-game loss to the Rays on Sunday.

It's a testament to Keuchel's stellar season thus far that he's being allowed to go the distance even when he doesn't have his best outing. The left-hander gave up nine hits and walked four in the start, which dropped him to 8-5 with a 2.78 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. He's lost two straight, and he'll look to turn that around Saturday against the Tigers.
