Dallas Keuchel scattered seven hits while pitching eight innings of one-run ball against the Mariners on Saturday.

Keuchel was spotted a four-run lead by the time the first inning was over, thanks to early home runs by Chris Carter and Alex Presley. He did not squander the cushion. Other than an RBI single by Robinson Cano in the third, Keuchel sported what was mostly a clean line. He allowed struck out eight and walked one while scattering seven hits. The victory bumped him up to a 12-9 record this season. Keuchel has been one of the biggest surprises in the game this season, posting a 2.93 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and a 146/48 K/BB ratio over 200 innings. This was likely his final start of 2014, but he won't sneak up on anyone next spring.

Dallas Keuchel limited the Angels to one run over seven innings in a win Sunday.

Keuchel was nearly unhittable, giving up just three hits on the afternoon. Two of those came in the eighth inning, when a Gordon Beckham double and David Freese RBI single chased him from the game. Still, he was good enough for his 11th win, quite a feat on a 65-win Astros club. Keuchel has a 3.00 ERA heading into Friday's start against the Mariners.
Sep 14 - 8:47 PM

Dallas Keuchel allowed three runs -- two earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the A's on Sunday.

Keuchel gave up eight hits in the game, including just his 11th home run of the season. He continues to lower his ERA -- it's at 3.02 after Sunday's start -- but remains 10-9 to show for it. Keuchel hasn't won a game since July 30. He'll look to remedy that Saturday at the Angels.
Sep 7 - 9:55 PM

Dallas Keuchel held the Rangers to two runs over seven innings in a no-decision on Sunday.

Keuchel turned in his fourth straight quality start, but the left-hander is 0-1 in those four starts. On Sunday, he gave up five hits and two walks. Keuchel lowered his ERA to 3.03 with the outing. He'll carry a 10-9 record into Sunday's start at the Athletics.
Aug 31 - 6:19 PM

Astros manager Bo Porter said Thursday that the club will monitor Dallas Keuchel's workload down the stretch.

At 171 1/3 innings, Keuchel is just 6 1/3 frames shy of his career high. The team hasn't revealed a specific number that they have in mind for the lefty, but it's sounding like he could have a turn skipped or get shut down early. "You look at his workload and the number of innings he's thrown this year, and it's something we definitely need to keep an eye on," Porter said.

Dallas Keuchel gave up just two runs -- one earned -- over seven innings Tuesday, settling for a no-decision against the Athletics.

Keuchel did his usual thing, inducing 18 ground balls while striking out just three. The southpaw gave up five hits while walking three in the outing. And, also as usual, the Astros failed to give him much in the way of run support. Keuchel remained 10-9 with a 3.05 ERA through 25 starts, and he'll hope for some more support when he takes on the Rangers on Sunday.
Aug 26 - 10:53 PM

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.

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.
Aug 16 - 12:36 AM

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.
Aug 6 - 12:24 AM

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.
Jul 31 - 11:00 AM

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.
