Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dallas Keuchel has hired Scott Boras as his new agent.
The 29-year-old hurler is preparing to hit free agency following the 2018 season, and this could be an indication that he's planning on testing the open market. Keuchel is currently recovering from a minor left foot sprain and is expected to be fully healthy for the start of spring training. Dec 10 - 5:01 PM

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, Dallas Keuchel "pitched with an undisclosed injury to his left foot during the second half of the season and throughout [the Astros'] run to the World Series title."

Keuchel told TMZ cameras earlier this month that he injured his foot when he slipped during the Astros' World Series victory parade, but the issue actually dates back to the middle of the summer. Perhaps he then reaggravated it while celebrating with his teammates in downtown Houston. A source told Crasnick that the symptoms suggest a case of plantar fasciitis, which can be a chronic thing for athletes. Nonetheless, the expectation is that Keuchel will be 100 percent for the beginning of spring training in February.

Dallas Keuchel suffered what the Astros are referring to as a minor left foot sprain when he slipped during the team's World Series victory parade.

Oops. TMZ Sports first reported news of the injury and had video with Keuchel wearing a walking boot. The boot is considered precautionary, though, and the team has indicated that the ailment isn't a big deal. Barring something unforeseen, Keuchel is expected to be ready to go for the beginning of spring training.

Dallas Keuchel struggled in a no-decision against the Dodgers in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday, surrendering four runs (three earned) on five hits in his 3 2/3 innings of work.

Keuchel walked two and struck out four in the ballgame. The Dodgers got to him early in this one, loading the bases in the first inning with a single and a pair of walks, leading to a three-run inning. It's likely that Keuchel is done for the season now, though he could conceivably be utilized out of the bullpen should the Series go to a decisive Game 7.
Oct 30 - 1:42 AM

Astros' manager A.J. Hinch confirmed Friday that Dallas Keuchel will start Game 5 of the World Series against the Dodgers.

That means that Justin Verlander will pitch a potential Game 6 if necessary and Lance McCullers would get the call should the series go to seven games. The Astros will send Charlie Morton to the hill on Saturday, looking to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series.
Oct 28 - 11:24 AM

Dallas Keuchel allowed three earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Tuesday as the Astros lost Game 1 of the World Series against the Dodgers.

Keuchel wasn't bad, but Chris Taylor popped him for a solo shot to lead off the bottom of the first inning and Justin Turner added a two-run dinger in the bottom of the sixth. Houston's offense managed just one run against Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles bullpen as the Astros fell 3-1. Keuchel may get the call in Game 4 of the World Series, depending on how the next couple of games play out.
Oct 24 - 10:43 PM

Dallas Keuchel will start Game 1 of the World Series for the Astros on Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

Keuchel is the obvious choice with Justin Verlander having pitched on Friday. He will be taking the ball on an extra day of rest when he opposes Clayton Kershaw at Dodger Stadium, while Verlander will go in Game 2 Wednesday on regular rest. The Dodgers have not announced who will pitch for them in Game 2, but it will likely be Rich Hill.
Oct 22 - 11:06 AM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch has already made it known that it will be an "all hands on deck" approach for the club's pitching staff in Game 7 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Saturday.

"I'll use every pitcher on the staff if we have to to get 27 outs" Hinch told reporters after Friday's victory. Presumably, that means the entire staff minus Justin Verlander who fired 99 pitches over seven shutout innings in Friday's win, but stranger things have happened. Keuchel has already announced that he's available for Saturday's elimination game.
Oct 21 - 10:56 AM

Dallas Keuechel gave up four runs in 4 2/3 innings for Houston in a 5-0 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday in Game 5 of the ALCS.

Keuchel did strikeout eight and walked just one, but he also gave up seven hits while not making it out of the fifth innings. In his career, Keuchel has dominated the Yankees, but he just didn't have his best stuff or command on Wednesday. It's possible we'll see Keuchel pitch in Game 7 out of the pen on two-days rest, but this very well could have been his last start of the 2017 season.
Oct 18 - 8:43 PM

Dallas Keuchel punched out 10 batters and fired seven scoreless innings while leading his team to a 2-1 win over the Yankees in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Friday.

He surrendered just four singles and a walk in the dominant outing. His tailing fastball generated 14 swinging strikes and looked nearly unhittable. Keuchel tossed 109 pitches in this one and may not be available to start again until Game 5 of the series. He's been in peak form in the playoffs, having allowed only one run in 5 2/3 innings against the Red Sox in Game 2 of their ALDS series.
Oct 14 - 12:31 AM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced Wednesday that Dallas Keuchel will start Game 1 of the ALCS.

Justin Verlander will follow him in Game 2 of the ALCS. Keuchel worked 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball in his one ALDS start against the Red Sox, striking out seven batters and yielding just three hits. Houston will either be matched up against the Indians or Yankees in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series. Those teams are playing a winner-advances ALDS Game 5 on Wednesday night at Cleveland's Progressive Field.
Oct 11 - 2:00 PM

Dallas Keuchel spun 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball in Friday’s 8-2 ALDS Game 2 victory over the Red Sox.

Keuchel didn’t look overly sharp early on, missing some spots and working slowly. He was able to limit the damage to a Jackie Bradley RBI single, though, and eventually settled in. Overall, the left-hander walked three but permitted just three hits while striking out seven batters. If the Astros can close the Red Sox out quickly, Keuchel is set up to pitch Game 2 of the ALCS.
Oct 6 - 6:30 PM

Dallas Keuchel will throw a simulated game on Sunday.

It would have been his regular turn in the rotation, but the Astros will instead hold him back until the ALDS. Collin McHugh will start for the Astros in Sunday's regular season finale against the Red Sox.
Sep 30 - 12:24 PM

Dallas Keuchel is unlikely to pitch Sunday in Boston.

Keuchel would be on normal rest for the Astros' regular-season finale at Fenway Park, but there's no reason to put him out there against a potential postseason opponent. The left-hander will get himself ready for the American League Division Series with simulated side sessions.
Sep 27 - 1:05 PM

Dallas Keuchel allowed two runs – one earned – while notching eight strikeouts over six frames in Tuesday’s 14-3 rout over the Rangers.

Keuchel could pretty much coast in this one, as the Astros got up being early and the Rangers pulled a lot of their starters from the lineup. Delino DeShields hit a solo shot of the lefty, but Keuchel gave up only five hits and a walk on the night to go along with his eight punchouts. He’ll have one more tune-up outing Sunday in Boston.
