Dallas Keuchel pitched six innings of shutout ball in Saturday's win over the Angels.
Keuchel has been nothing short of phenomenal to start the 2015 season. After holding down the Angels, he now boasts a microscopic ERA of 0.90. He struck out seven, walked three and allowed just two hits in his six innings. If we're going to nitpick, he could be slightly more efficient, as he had already thrown 105 pitches through six frames. Still. After a stellar 2014 campaign in which he finished with a 2.93 ERA and a 146/48 K/BB ratio over 200 innings, Keuchel's come out firing. He'll try to keep up the stellar start on his road date with the A's. Apr 18 - 11:42 PM

Dallas Keuchel allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Rangers.

Keuchel has been fantastic in his first two starts. He shut the Indians down on Opening Day and flummoxed the Rangers on Sunday, when he took a shutout into the seventh inning before losing steam. A two-run single by Leonys Martin broke up the shutout. Keuchel struck out three and walked three while limiting the Rangers to six hits in the outing. Keuchel has averaged 6.3 K/9 in his career, so the low strikeout total isn't particularly surprising. The lefty will face off against the Angels in his next start.
Apr 12 - 7:59 PM

Dallas Keuchel blanked the Indians over seven innings in an Opening Day win on Monday.

Keuchel was terrific, out-pitching last year's AL Cy Young Award winner. The lefty limited the Indians to three hits and three walks while striking out four. Keuchel is coming off of a breakout 2014 campaign in which he finished with a 2.93 ERA and a 146/48 K/BB ratio in an even 200 innings.
Apr 6 - 9:40 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball Wednesday versus the Tigers.

Keuchel ends the spring with a 1.80 ERA in four starts. Next up for him is a showdown with the Indians' Corey Kluber on Monday.
Apr 1 - 5:16 PM

Dallas Keuchel blanked the Yankees for 4 1/3 innings in his start Saturday.

Keuchel was one of the AL's best left-handers last year, but it hasn't earned him much respect in fantasy drafts this spring. We think he's legit, and while it might not lead to a 2.93 ERA again, he should still be useful in mixed leagues.
Mar 21 - 4:40 PM

Dallas Keuchel has been named the Astros' Opening Day starter.

Keuchel is plenty deserving, as he posted a surprising 2.93 ERA and 146/48 K/BB ratio in 200 innings across 29 starts last season. He'll attempt to build on that success in 2015.
Mar 17 - 11:22 AM

Dallas Keuchel has been named the 2014 American League Gold Glove winner at pitcher.

He's a first-time winner but is very deserving, as Keuchel rated very well defensively. The left-hander beat out Mark Buehrle and Felix Hernandez for the award.

Dallas Keuchel has been shut down for the season.

Keuchel has tossed an even 200 innings this season, topping his previous career high of 177 2/3 frames. The left-hander went out in style, throwing eight innings of one-run ball versus the Mariners Saturday to lower his ERA to 2.93. It was a breakout season for Keuchel.

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.
Sun, Sep 14, 2014 08:47:00 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.

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.
Sun, Aug 31, 2014 06:19:00 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.

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.
