Dallas Keuchel pitched 6 2/3 innings and allowed four runs Wednesday in a win over the Rangers.
Keuchel got the win, but it was another start that didn't measure up to his performances prior to his wrist injury. He struck out three and walked one against a mediocre offense tonight, and if not for a couple of nice plays from Enrique Hernandez, the outing could have gone considerably worse. How much the wrist was a factor is hard to say, but it remains a source of concern. Jul 9 - 11:39 PM

Date:

Dallas Keuchel had his worst start of the season Friday against the Angels, giving up five runs and 13 hits in five innings.

Rather than play it safe and DL Keuchel after he came down with wrist inflammation, the Astros had him skip just one start. In his return tonight, he wasn't his usual self, striking out just one batter and allowing four more hits than he had in any previous start this season. We'll see what happens next, but it seems unlikely that he's 100 percent.

Dallas Keuchel (wrist) is expected to start on Friday in Anaheim.

Keuchel missed his last outing with left wrist inflammation. He had been pegged to return on Thursday, but the Astros have decided to let Brett Oberholtzer make one more start and given Keuchel an extra day. The left-hander boasts a 2.78 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over 15 starts this season.

Dallas Keuchel (wrist) is hoping to be ready to start on Thursday in Anaheim.

Keuchel had to be scratched from Saturday's outing due to left wrist inflammation. He underwent an MRI and X-ray and has already felt improvement after taking some antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. "I’ve never really had something like this, so I was kind of nervous and the training staff was telling me it was nothing to really be concerned about," Keuchel said.

Dallas Keuchel won't start Saturday because of swelling in his left wrist, the Astros announced.

No word yet on what's causing the swelling. It's in his throwing arm, so it seems like a significant source of concern. The Astros have rearranged their rotation so that Brett Oberholtzer will start Saturday against the Tigers.
Jun 28 - 12:41 AM

Dallas Keuchel allowed five runs -- four earned -- over eight innings in a complete-game loss to the Rays on Sunday.

It's a testament to Keuchel's stellar season thus far that he's being allowed to go the distance even when he doesn't have his best outing. The left-hander gave up nine hits and walked four in the start, which dropped him to 8-5 with a 2.78 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. He's lost two straight, and he'll look to turn that around Saturday against the Tigers.
Jun 22 - 5:05 PM

Dallas Keuchel fell to 8-4, allowing four runs over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

It was the first time Keuchel allowed four runs in a start since May 3. He had cobbled together seven consecutive quality starts in between. The lefty allowed six hits, walked four, and struck out four in the effort. Nevertheless, Keuchel's stats remain impressive. He is carrying a 2.63 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and a 79/22 K/BB ratio in 95 2/3 innings. He'll go up against the Rays on the road next.
Jun 17 - 11:22 PM

Dallas Keuchel limited the Diamondbacks to one run and four hits over eight innings to win Wednesday.

Aaron Hill's sixth-inning solo shot was the only damage, and that was the first homer Keuchel had allowed in a month. Keuchel has won six of his last seven starts, and he's 8-3 for the season, giving him one more win than any Astros pitcher had last year (Jordan Lyles went 7-9). Not bad for a guy who very nearly didn't make the rotation after a shaky second half of the spring.
Jun 11 - 11:15 PM

Dallas Keuchel spun six scoreless frames in a 5-4 win over the Twins on Friday.

Keuchel took his first loss since May 3 last time out, but he bounced back nicely in this one. The southpaw allowed five hits (four of them singles) and walked a pair while striking out six batters. He's now 7-3 with a quality 2.50 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 70/17 K/BB ratio in 82 2/3 innings across 12 starts. It's safe to say that he's been one of the biggest surprises of the season so far.
Jun 7 - 1:13 AM

Dallas Keuchel gave up three earned runs in six innings Saturday as the Astros fell to the Orioles.

Keuchel had been dominant in three straight outings but didn't quite have it on Saturday, yielding six hits and three walks while falling to 6-3 on the season. The 26-year-old left-hander still owns a fantastic 2.70 ERA and 1.02 WHIP, but more regression could very well be coming. He'll get the Twins in Minnesota next.
May 31 - 7:07 PM

Dallas Keuchel surrendered only an unearned run while allowing four hits in a complete-game, 4-1 victory over the Mariners on Sunday.

Keuchel has now thrown two complete games and one 8 2/3-inning outing in his last three starts. Unsurprisingly, the left-hander is 3-0 in those starts and 6-2 overall. On Sunday, he didn't walk a batter while striking out six, needing 105 pitches to finish off the M's. It lowered his ERA to 2.55 and WHIP to 0.98, and it further cemented his place as one of the American League's best pitchers in 2014. The Orioles are the next unlucky team to draw a Keuchel start, and they'll meet on Friday.
May 25 - 8:08 PM

The Astros have decided to give Dallas Keuchel an extra day off and start him Sunday against the Mariners.

That's a smart call after Bo Porter let him throw 128 pitches last time out versus the Angels. Brett Oberholtzer will start Saturday.
May 24 - 2:33 AM

Dallas Keuchel fired 8 2/3 innings of two-run ball, striking out eight and allowing five hits, as the Astros beat the Angels 5-2 on Monday.

The left-hander walked one. Keuchel was one out away from his second straight complete game, but Mike Trout beat out an infield single and Albert Pujols singled him to third, prompting Bo Porter to yank him at 128 pitches (Josh Zeid promptly gave up a two-run triple to Howie Kendrick). Keuchel is on fire right now. He threw a seven-hit shutout against the Rangers on Tuesday, and is 3-0 with a 1.40 ERA over his last three outings (it would have been a 0.69 ERA, for the record, if Keuchel had gotten Trout or Pujols out). Keuchel has ridden a nasty slider, the best GB/FB ratio in the game, and improved control to the early makings of a breakout campaign. After producing a 5.15 ERA, 4.25 FIP and 123 strikeouts in 153 2/3 innings last year, Keuchel is 5-2 with a 2.92 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. He's been a must-own in mixed leagues for a few weeks now, but is still held in just 34% of Yahoo! leagues. Keuchel, seeking more respect, packs his bags for the northwest with a Saturday date in Seattle.
May 20 - 12:57 AM

Dallas Keuchel threw a seven-hit shutout as the Astros beat the Rangers 8-0 on Tuesday.

The left-hander struck out seven while not walking a batter, needing 108 pitches to complete the feat. It was the latest and most impressive start in what's been a breakout season for Keuchel, as he owns a 3.06 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 47/11 K/BB ratio in 53 innings this year. Even as a member of the Astros, Keuchel has become an asset in mixed leagues with his performance. He'll hit the road to face the Angels on Monday.
May 13 - 11:27 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball and fanned seven to beat the Tigers on Thursday.

Victor Martinez was responsible for the first homer Keuchel allowed in four starts, but was really the only blip today. Keuchel is now 3-2 with a 3.68 ERA, and his peripherals are even better; he has a 40/11 K/BB ratio in 44 innings and a strong groundball rate. On any other team, he'd be a clear mixed-league starter. On the Astros, he's more of a matchup guy, but not a bad one.
