Dallas Keuchel allowed a lone run in seven innings of work to pick up his 16th win on Monday as the Astros powered past the Mariners 8-3.
Keuchel allowed a solo home run to Mark Trumbo in the second inning, a powerful blast that landed in the second deck in right field. It was the only blemish on the line as the lefty scattered six hits and a walk while striking out eight. Keuchel is in the AL Cy Young award conversation as he leads the league in wins with a 2.24 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and a 173/42 K/BB ratio over 192 2/3 innings. He'll face the Twins at home next.

Dallas Keuchel picked up his 15th win with seven scoreless innings as the Astros trounced the Yankees 15-1 on Tuesday.

Keuchel didn't need to be nearly as sharp as he was, scattering three hits while walking none and striking out nine on 88 pitches. The lefty is the American League leader in wins with a 2.28 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and a 165/41 K/BB ratio over 185 2/3 innings. Keuchel will attempt to pad his AL Cy Young case in a home start against the Mariners next week.

Dallas Keuchel says his agent has been discussing a contract extension with the Astros.

Keuchel will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and should hit it big. Houston might look to buy out all three of his arbitration years and a season or two of free agency. The 27-year-old left-hander holds a stellar 2.37 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 156/41 K/BB ratio in 25 starts this summer and he leads the American League in wins with 14. "I know we're in a great position for the next probably five, 10 years, and that’s what it’s all about," Keuchel told the Houston Chronicle. "It’s all about winning. Me personally, it’s not about the dollar amount."
Aug 24 - 12:32 PM

Dallas Keuchel picked up his 14th victory of the season on Friday, allowing just one run on six hits over seven strong innings.

Keuchel racked up eight strikeouts on the night while walking one (Miguel Cabrera). The only blemish on his evening was an RBI single off the bat of Victor Martinez in the fourth inning. Continuing to build a strong case for the American League Cy Young Award, Keuchel boasts a 2.36 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 151/40 K/BB ratio across 171 2/3 frames on the year. He'll look to continue that dominance when he does battle against the Rays at home on Wednesday.
Aug 14 - 11:24 PM

Dallas Keuchel improved to 13-5 after defeating the Diamondbacks on Saturday, tossing six innings of two-run ball in the 9-2 victory.

Keuchel struck out eight, but also walked three. The free passes led to two runs in the second inning, including one that scored when the All-Star offered ball four to Ender Inciarte with the bases loaded. The 27-year-old southpaw calmed down after all that silliness, though, shutting out the Diamondbacks the rest of the way. Keuchel's consistently great play has put him in the AL Cy Young conversation, as he holds a 2.35 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 140/37 K/BB ratio over 157 innings. He'll head to Oakland for a road outing against the A's in his next scheduled start.
Aug 1 - 11:05 PM

Dallas Keuchel posted a rare poor start in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Royals, allowing five runs on 10 hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Keuchel was coming off one of his best starts of the season, a 13-strikeout, seven-inning shutout performance against the Rangers, but he was hit early and often by the Royals on Sunday. The All-Star southpaw loaded the bases with nobody out in the first inning and ultimately surrendered four runs in the frame courtesy of a two-run single by Omar Infante and a two-run double by Cheslor Cuthbert. He also served up a solo home run to Lorenzo Cain an inning later before finally settling in. Keuchel's been one of the best starters in the bigs and we're not particularly worried about one poor start, as he holds a 2.32 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 132/34 K/BB ratio over 151 innings this season. He'll look to rebound in a home outing against the Diamondbacks next time he takes the mound.
Jul 26 - 4:55 PM

Dallas Keuchel struck out 13 batters over seven scoreless innings Sunday in the Astros' 10-0 rout of the Rangers.

Keuchel was stellar in his first appearance of the second half, yielding only two hits and issuing zero walks while moving to 12-4 on the season. A groundball pitcher by trade, the 27-year-old has stepped up the strikeout totals in 2015, now with a 127/34 K/BB ratio in 144 1/3 frames. He also has a 2.12 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. Incredible stuff.
Jul 19 - 5:21 PM

Dallas Keuchel allowed one unearned run over his two innings in Tuesday's win over the National League.

The left-hander had an uneventful 1-2-3 first inning, but Paul Goldschmidt had an infield single to lead off the second and came around to score after a Josh Donaldson throwing error. Keuchel was followed by Felix Hernandez and David Price, who both had quick frames. Glen Perkins allowed a run in the ninth inning but held on to close out the American League's 6-3 victory.
Jul 14 - 11:52 PM

Dallas Keuchel has been named the American League starter for Tuesday's All-Star Game.

Keuchel has backed up his breakout 2014 season with an even better 2015, boasting a 2.23 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 114/34 K/BB ratio through an MLB-high 137 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old left-hander will be followed Tuesday by some combination of Chris Archer, Sonny Gray, Felix Hernandez, David Price, Chris Sale, and Hector Santiago. Zack Greinke is starting for the National League.
Jul 13 - 12:40 PM

Dallas Keuchel fell to 11-4 after tossing seven innings of three-run ball against the Rays on Saturday.

Keuchel struck out four and walked two while scattering seven hits in the contest. All three runs scored against him in the second inning, when he allowed a pair of RBI singles. An All-Star this season, Keuchel has posted phenomenal first-half numbers and now holds a 2.23 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and a 114/34 K/BB ratio across 137 1/3 innings.
Jul 11 - 7:01 PM

Dallas Keuchel won his AL-leading 11th game on Monday, allowing three runs in six innings as the Astros topped the Indians 9-4.

Keuchel was relatively hittable, allowing a season-high nine hits, but gave up only one walk and struck out eight to limit the damage. Along with a terrific 11-3 record, the newly-minted AL All-Star has a 2.14 ERA with a 0.99 WHIP and a 110/32 K/BB ratio over 130 1/3 innings. Keuchel's final start of the first half will occur in Tampa against the Rays.
Jul 6 - 10:58 PM

Dallas Keuchel threw eight scoreless innings as the Astros shut out the Royals 4-0 on Tuesday.

The southpaw scattered seven hits without walking a batter, mixing in seven strikeouts over his eight innings. Such lines have become pretty common for Keuchel, who improved to 10-3 with a 2.03 ERA and 0.96 WHIP with the victory. His career high in wins is 12, achieved last year, but Keuchel is threatening to match that by the All-Star break. He'll attempt to take one step closer Monday at the Indians.
Jun 30 - 11:36 PM

Dallas Keuchel struck out a career-high 12 batters in shutting out the Yankees on Thursday.

Wowsers. Keuchel got some help from Joe West on a few of the strikeouts tonight, but he likely would have shut down the Yankees regardless. It ended up being his third career shutout and ninth complete game. He's 9-3 with a 2.17 ERA this season, making him a candidate to start the All-Star Game.
Jun 25 - 10:52 PM

Dallas Keuchel was knocked around for five earned runs over six innings Saturday by the Mariners.

He just didn't have it in this one. Keuchel, a control specialist, walked four batters in the bottom of the second inning and gave up homers in the third, fifth, and sixth. Look for the 27-year-old left-hander to bounce back at home next week against the Yankees. He still has a tremendous 2.35 ERA and 0.98 WHIP.
Jun 21 - 1:04 AM

Dallas Keuchel moved his record to 8-2 by limiting the Rockies to three runs over 6 2/3 innings in Monday's 6-3 victory.

Keuchel had a perfect game through five innings but wound up allowing three hits and two runs in the sixth. The 6 2/3 frames qualifies as an abbreviated outing for him but goes as a quality start. For the first time all season, his ERA is above 2.00 (it's 2.04). He'll take on the Mariners on the road this weekend.
