Dallas Keuchel dropped to 2-4 after giving up five runs in 4 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Twins.
Keuchel's velocity remains down significantly, and he's walked 18 batters in 37 innings. Those two factors would seem to suggest he's dealing with an injury of some sort, but he hasn't admitted to anything. On the plus side, he's still getting grounders and swings and misses. He's not nearly hopeless yet. May 3 - 12:00 AM

Dallas Keuchel failed to rev in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, surrendering five runs on six hits over six innings.

Keuchel punched out five and walked two on the evening. He kept the Mariners off the scoreboard until the fourth inning, when Nelson Cruz hit an RBI single. That would have been survivable. A four-run fifth by the M's, less survivable. With the loss, Keuchel falls to 2-3. He has allowed 11 runs in his last 12 innings and will try to right the ship in a home start against the Twins in his next outing.
Apr 27 - 2:27 AM

Dallas Keuchel was abysmally ineffective in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Rangers, allowing six runs on 13 hits over six innings.

That Keuchel managed to throw six innings is impressive in its own way, given how often he had runners on base. The Rangers struck for three runs in the first inning before pulling back for solitary runs in the second, third and fifth innings. Even with Thursday's trying start, the ace southpaw still holds a 3.71 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 22/11 K/BB ratio across 26 2/3 innings. He will look for easier times on the mound when he takes to the lonesome trail to face the Mariners in Seattle next time out.
Apr 21 - 10:51 PM

Dallas Keuchel scattered five hits over eight scoreless innings against the Tigers on Friday en route to his second victory of the season.

Keuchel racked up four strikeouts on the night while walking only one. It was far and away the finest start of the year for the reigning American League Cy Young award winner. It's certainly impressive that he was able to hold down an offense that mashes left-handed pitching and had averaged over six runs per game heading into Friday. Keuchel will look to further improve upon his 2.18 ERA and 1.21 WHIP when he squares off against the Rangers in Texas on Thursday.
Apr 15 - 11:03 PM

Dallas Keuchel allowed three earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Brewers.

Keuchel again struggled with his command, issuing six walks in the frustrating outing at Miller Park. He had an excuse for the four walks he issued in his debut last week at a cold and wet Yankee Stadium, but the roof was closed on Sunday afternoon in Milwaukee. Keuchel will try to find his groove next time out against the Tigers. It'll be a home start at the roof-ready Minute Maid Park.
Apr 10 - 5:24 PM

Dallas Keuchel held the Yankees to two runs over seven innings Tuesday in the Astros' Opening Day victory.

Keuchel was supposed to make this start on Monday, but it had to be postponed because of wet and cold conditions in New York. The sudden routine change and still-freezing temperatures at Yankee Stadium probably threw off his control somewhat on Tuesday -- he walked four Yankees hitters -- but the 2015 American League Cy Young Award winner was able to battle through and pick up a win. He gave up only three hits and struck out five. Up next is a road start against the Brewers.
Apr 5 - 4:49 PM

Dallas Keuchel tossed seven scoreless innings against the Phillies on Wednesday to finish off his flawless spring.

Keuchel pitched 17 innings without surrendering a run this spring. He gave up seven hits, walked two and struck out 16. Next up for him is the Yankees on Opening Day.
Mar 30 - 5:24 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched five scoreless innings and struck out five versus the Mets on Thursday.

Keuchel was facing a split-squad, but he got the one with all of the Mets' regulars. No matter, he still maintained his perfect spring ERA.
Mar 24 - 5:45 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched three scoreless innings Monday as the Astros and Nationals played to a 1-1 tie.

The 2015 AL Cy Young award winner allowed one hit, walked none and struck out four. He's thrown five scoreless innings this spring.
Mar 14 - 4:32 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched two scoreless innings Wednesday in the Astros' 9-5 win over the Braves.

The Astros chose not to pitch Keuchel in the first week of games as a nod to last year's heavy workload. He'll be expected to be one of the league's top workhorses again this year.
Mar 9 - 5:10 PM

Dallas Keuchel's Grapefruit League debut this spring will be delayed.

Keuchel is fine physically, as the Astros are just easing him into things after he threw 246 innings last season between the regular and postseason. "At this point it's tough trying to envision myself taking it easy kind of step by step," Keuchel said. "At this point you see a batter in the box you want to ramp up to game speed, but it's a process at this point especially coming off a high volume year last year. I'd love to get back there, so I'm going to take it easy as much as possible but build slowly but surely to get myself ready for games here in mid March."
Feb 28 - 11:51 AM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced the obvious on Saturday, tabbing Dallas Keuchel as his Opening Day starter.

This was a foregone conclusion for the 28-year-old hurler and reigning Cy Young Award winner in the American League. Keuchel is coming off an unbelievable 2015 campaign where he went 20-8 with a 2.48 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 216/51 K/BB ratio across a league-leading 232 innings.
Feb 20 - 9:55 AM

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros and Dallas Keuchel "have had substantial talks about extensions... but to no avail."

Keuchel's agent, Darek Braunecker, said in early January that the two sides had not had any discussions about a long-term deal this offseason, but it sounds like they may have engaged in talks between then and now. Either way, it doesn't appear that any traction was ever gained. Keuchel will be paid $7.25 million in 2016, which is a record one-year deal for a first-time arbitration-eligible player.
Feb 14 - 10:40 AM

Astros and LHP Dallas Keuchel avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.25 million contract.

It's a record one-year deal for a first-time arbitration-eligible player. Of course, the bump in salary is well earned after Keuchel held a 2.47 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 213/49 K/BB ratio across 226 innings in 2015 on his way to the American League Cy Young award.
Jan 15 - 2:40 PM

Darek Braunecker, the agent for Dallas Keuchel, told MLB Network Radio that the Astros and Keuchel have not discussed a long-term contract this offseason.

In late November, the Houston Chronicle reported that the Astros were expected to open long-term contract discussions at some point this winter. It appears they haven't started into those yet, which begs the question whether such talks will actually take place before the start of spring training in February. Braunecker indicated that while the two sides did engage in some preliminary contract discussions during the 2015 season, they weren't of an advanced nature. The AL Cy Young winner held a 2.47 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 213/49 K/BB ratio across 226 innings while working to a 20-8 record during the past campaign.
