Dallas Keuchel (neck) played catch on Monday.
It's the first time he's done so since he landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a nerve issue in his neck. "It's very early in his progress," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "Playing catch is playing catch. The next step would be playing catch a little harder and a little further and then take steps toward getting on the mound." It sounds like Keuchel is probably still a couple weeks away from a return even if all goes well. Jun 20 - 10:56 AM

Dallas Keuchel (neck) said Friday that he's hoping to resume throwing in the next day or two.

Keuchel has been on the disabled list since June 5 because of a lingering nerve issue in his neck. There's no real timetable for his return at this point, but the picture should become clearer by the middle of next week. The ace left-hander is sitting on a brilliant 9-0 record, 1.67 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 69/18 K/BB ratio in 75 2/3 innings.

Dallas Keuchel (neck) will be shut down from throwing for a week.

Keuchel was examined by team doctors on Friday after landing back on the disabled list Thursday, retroactive to June 5, with a lingering nerve issue in his neck. The hope is he'll only have to miss one or two more turns in the rotation, but the first-place Astros figure to play it safe with their ace. Keuchel missed a start in May with the very same issue.
Jun 10 - 1:09 PM

Astros placed LHP Dallas Keuchel on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 5, with a neck injury.

Keuchel was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday against the Royals due to what was originally described as an illness. He's still feeling neck discomfort -- something that also caused him to miss a start in May. The ace left-hander is headed back to Houston for an evaluation by team doctors.
Jun 8 - 3:19 PM

Dallas Keuchel (illness) has been scratched from his scheduled start against the Royals on Wednesday.

Keuchel had an opportunity to improve to 10-0, but he will have to hold off on that quest until he is feeling a bit better. Dayan Diaz will take the ball in his place, to be opposed by Jason Vargas.
Jun 7 - 8:11 PM

Dallas Keuchel improved to 9-0 after tossing six scoreless frames against the Rangers on Friday.

More excellence from Keuchel. After waiting out a lengthy rain delay, the southpaw surrendered just three hits while walking a pair and striking out seven. In addition to his perfect record, Keuchel is second in the AL with a 1.67 ERA to go along with a 69/18 K/BB ratio over 75 2/3 innings. After a disappointing 2016, he’s back in a big way.
Jun 3 - 1:24 AM

Dallas Keuchel allowed just one earned run, four hits and two walks while recording eight strikeouts across six innings in a win Saturday against the Orioles.

Keuchel showed no ill effects from the neck injury which forced him to the 10-day disabled list. He made 86 pitches, throwing 55 for strikes, and continues to mow down opponents. Keuchel is now 8-0 with a 1.81 ERA and sparkling 0.88 WHIP, and he is even better at home. The southpaw is 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA in five outings at Minute Maid Park this season. His next scheduled start is set for Friday in Texas.
May 27 - 11:08 PM

Astros activated LHP Dallas Keuchel from the 10-day disabled list.

He'll jump right back into the rotation on Saturday against the Orioles. The left-hander has been outstanding this season, posting a 7-0 record, 1.84 ERA, 0.86 WHIP with a 54/14 K/BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings.
May 27 - 2:56 PM

Dallas Keuchel (neck) plans to return to the Astros' rotation Saturday against the Orioles.

That's the first day he's eligible for activation from the 10-day disabled list. "I feel a lot better," Keuchel told reporters Tuesday. "The plan is still the same ... good for Saturday." The ace left-hander was 7-0 with a sensational 1.84 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 54/14 K/BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings before going down with a pinched nerve in his neck.
May 23 - 6:12 PM

Astros placed LHP Dallas Keuchel on the 10-day disabled list with a pinched nerve in his neck.

The issue is believed to be minor and he's only expected to miss one start. Keuchel has been one of the most dominant starters in the league to this point of the season, posting a 7-0 record while registering a 1.84 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 54/14 K/BB ratio across 63 2/3 innings.
May 20 - 11:27 AM

Dallas Keuchel yielded two runs over five innings in Tuesday’s 12-2 win over the Marlins.

The left-hander gave up four singles and didn’t walk anyone while recording four strikeouts. He had thrown just 70 pitches, but it appeared Astros manager A.J. Hinch just wanted to buy Keuchel some rest with the club having a 10-2 lead at the time. Not surprisingly, it’s the shortest outing of the season for Keuchel, who is now 7-0 after nine starts. He’ll take on the Tigers and Orioles next week at home.
May 16 - 10:27 PM

Dallas Keuchel was nearly flawless Thursday, striking out nine while allowing only an unearned run over six innings in the Astros' 3-2 win over the Yankees.

Keuchel yielded five hits -- all singles -- with one walk over his six frames. The nine strikeouts tied a season high, giving him 50 punchouts in 58 2/3 innings to date. The win improved the southpaw to a still-perfect 6-0 with a microscopic 1.69 ERA and 0.87 WHIP. As if Keuchel needed any help, he'll get to face the opposing pitcher his next time out when the Astros visit the Marlins on Tuesday.
May 11 - 11:19 PM

Dallas Keuchel was charged with five runs in eight-plus innings Friday in a no-decision against the Angels.

It was two runs through eight innings before Keuchel went back out for the ninth. He loaded the bases before being pulled, and all of the runners came around to score off A.J. Hinch. That one partial inning took Keuchel's ERA from 1.37 to 1.88.
May 6 - 2:58 AM

Dallas Keuchel tossed 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball as the Astros rolled to a 7-2 victory on Sunday.

Keuchel gave up just three hits and two walks while striking out nine in yet another dominant performance. He was working on a shutout until Ryon Healy hit a soft RBI single to center field in the top of the eighth. Keuchel moved to 5-0 with the win and boasts a 1.21 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 36/11 K/BB ratio through 44 2/3 innings (six starts) this season. A road start against the Angels is next for the 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner.
Apr 30 - 5:44 PM

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.
