Dallas Keuchel pitched well in Sunday's victory over the Orioles, fanning seven over eight innings of two-run baseball.
Keuchel scattered five hits and walked one on the afternoon. He allowed a solo homer to Jonathan Schoop in the fourth inning and an RBI single to Adam Jones in the fifth, but that was the extent of the damage against him. Keuchel has been incredibly inconsistent this season, pitching to a 4.64 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 161 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he takes on the Rays at home on Saturday.

Dallas Keuchel allowed six runs on six hits over five innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday.

A two-run home run was among the six hits given up, but the performance wasn't actually as bad as his final line suggests. Keuchel walked just one while striking out seven, and he once again induced more ground balls than fly balls. The results haven't been what Keuchel has wanted in the past month -- he's just 1-3 in his last six starts -- but he's been much better since his early struggles. Keuchel will keep working on his 4.76 ERA Sunday at the Orioles.

Dallas Keuchel gave up five runs -- three earned -- in two innings before Wednesday's game against the Astros was rained out.

Lucky for Keuchel. Last year's Cy Young winner has been good more often than not lately, but this was shaping up as his second ugly outing in the past three. It's wiped from the books now, and he'll presumably come back to start this weekend.
Aug 10 - 11:40 PM

Dallas Keuchel rebounded beautifully from a disastrous start his last time out, shutting out the Rangers on three hits and a pair of walks on Friday night in Houston.

Keuchel struck out seven in the masterful outing, needing just 111 pitches to complete his fourth career shutout. He has been far too hittable for much of the season, but looked like the Cy Young Award winner from 2015 in this start, keeping all of the Rangers hitters off-balance the entire night. He'll look to replicate this fine start when he squares off against the Twins in Minnesota on Wednesday.
Aug 5 - 11:10 PM

Dallas Keuchel was obliterated in Sunday's 11-0 loss to the Tigers, surrendering seven runs on seven hits over five innings.

Keuchel (as he tends to do) dominated the Yankees in his last start, but he showed no such magic touch against the Tigers on Sunday. Things started off poorly enough, as the reigning AL Cy Young winner allowed a whopping six runs in the first inning, with a grand slam by James McCann serving as the killer blow. Keuchel allowed just one run the rest of the way, but the damage had already been done. The disaster bumped his ERA from 4.57 to 4.86. Any seven-run outing counts as a debacle, but Keuchel entered the game with a strong 2.33 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 22/6 K/BB ratio through four starts for the month of July. Fingers crossed that Sunday's outing was just a blip on the radar. He will look to move past it in a home start against the Rangers next time he takes the mound.
Jul 31 - 4:22 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball in a loss to the Yankees on Monday.

The Bombers didn't exactly tee off on Keuchel, but they did enough to beat him for the first time since 2014. Including last year's wild card game, Keuchel has a 1.38 ERA in six career starts against the Yankees.
Jul 25 - 11:17 PM

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.
Jun 29 - 7:40 PM

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.
