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.
Jun 16 - 12:05 AM

Dallas Keuchel allowed two runs over seven innings but took the loss Tuesday against the White Sox.

Keuchel was his usual self, giving up seven hits and two walks while striking out five, but the Astros were unable to get anything going offensively against White Sox starter Carlos Rodon. The game was scoreless until Jose Abreu took Keuchel deep in the sixth inning, accounting for both of the runs against the southpaw. The loss was his second in four starts but Keuchel is still 7-2 with a stellar 1.90 ERA and 0.95 WHIP through 13 starts. He'll look for a better result Monday against the Rockies.
Jun 10 - 12:50 AM

Dallas Keuchel allowed just two runs in Thursday afternoon's no-decision loss to the Orioles, but his 108 pitches thrown through six innings prevented him from lasting deeper in the contest.

Keuchel continued his season-long roll, albeit less efficiently than normal. Thursday's start was the first in his last four in which he failed to last seven innings. While he struck out seven, he threw just 66 of his 108 pitches for strikes. We should take this as a good sign that Keuchel has learned how to manage a game even when his stuff is moving outside of the strike zone. He holds a 1.85 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 67/22 K/BB ratio over 87 2/3 innings this season and will try to keep things rockin' on a road date with the White Sox next time he takes the ball.
Jun 4 - 5:13 PM

Dallas Keuchel was flat-out dominant in Saturday's 3-0 win over the White Sox, striking out 11 in a complete game shutout.

Keuchel had everything working against the White Sox. Not only did he strike out 11, he did so without walking a batter. With the spectacular effort, he dropped his ERA to a stellar 1.76, to go with a 0.91 WHIP and 60/21 K/BB ratio over 81 2/3 innings. It's been a beautiful season to this point. The Orioles are up next on Keuchel's schedule.
May 30 - 6:50 PM

Dallas Keuchel took a complete-game loss after giving up four runs in eight innings Monday against the Orioles.

Keuchel gave up a pair of two-run homers today after allowing just one bomb in his first nine starts. Obviously, he was strong otherwise, which is why he got to finish the game, but the Astros couldn't bail him out in the 4-3 loss. It was his first defeat after six wins this year. Keuchel's ERA rose from 1.67 to 1.98.
May 25 - 4:37 PM

Dallas Keuchel limited the A's to one (unearned) run over seven innings Wednesday in the Astros' 6-1 victory.

Keuchel scattered six singles and two walks over his seven solid frames, whiffing four. The 27-year-old left-hander is now 6-0 with a 1.67 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 46/20 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings this season. And he boasts a 2.06 ERA over his last 144 1/3 innings dating back to last summer. Keuchel will try to keep it all working next week in Baltimore. There's little doubt at this point that he is a legitimate staff ace.
