Dallas Keuchel done for 2014


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/21/2014) The Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros will shut down starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel for the remainder of this season. Keuchel made what turned out to be his final start on Saturday, holding the Mariners to one run over eight innings and picking up a win.

The lefty, who has the highest ground ball rate of all qualifying starters in the majors, finishes his third season with the Astros with a 12-9 record and 2.93 ERA.


Dallas Keuchel turns in an excellent start Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel turned in an excellent start Saturday against the Mariners.

Keuchel allowed one run on seven hits over eight innings. He struck out eight and walked one during the outing. Keuchel gave up his only run in the third inning. With a runner on second, Robinson Cano drove a run-scoring single to right field. The run didn’t seem to bother Keuchel, as he went on to throw five scoreless innings before leaving the contest. 

With the win, Keuchel improved to 12-9. He’ll take on the Mets in his next start. 


Brad Peacock start Friday pushes Dallas Keuchel back a day


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Astros right-hander Brad Peacock, who lost his Monday start to back soreness, has returned to the rotation, thanks to a pain-free bullpen session Tuesday. He is set to start Friday night against Seattle, the Houston Chronicle has reported.

The move pushes ace lefty Dallas Keuchel back to Saturday, giving him an extra day of rest.


Dallas Keuchel flirts with no-hitter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Angels. Keuchel (11-9) threw seven-plus innings, allowing one run on three hits and a walk. He struck out four while lowering his ERA to 3.00.

After ending the Angels' 10-game win streak, Keuchel has allowed two or fewer runs in four straight starts. He'll face the Mariners at home Saturday.


Astros return to a five-man rotation for now


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/14/2014) The Astros are skipping Brad Peacock's scheduled start on Monday against the Indians, as he is dealing with a sore lower back. Rather than replace Peacock, the Astros will move up their other five starters a day and, at least temporarily, put an end to their six-man rotation. Collin McHugh, Nick Tropeano, Brett Oberholtzer and Scott Feldman are now set to start against the Indians, and Dallas Keuchel will take the mound to open the weekend series against the Mariners on Friday.

There is currently no timetable for Peacock's return.


Dallas Keuchel saddled Sunday with another no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Astros starter Dallas Keuchel pitched well enough to win Sunday against Oakland - but didn't.

Keuchel yielded just two earned runs on eight hits in 6 2/3 innings with one walk and three strikeouts. His biggest mistake was slammed over the fence by Nate Freiman and turned a 2-1 lead into a 3-2 deficit. The Astros came back, resulting in his third consecutive quality start no-decision.

The southpaw is scheduled to make his next start next week against the host Angels.


Dallas Keuchel settles for no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel wasn't a factor into the decision Sunday against the Rangers. He permitted two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three over seven innings of work.

Over his last two starts covering 14 innings, Keuchel has allowed three earned runs. He owns a 3.03 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 26 starts (178 1/3 innings). His next start will come Sunday at Oakland.

Astros monitoring Dallas Keuchel's workload


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) The Astros are monitoring pitcher Dallas Keuchel's workload, accoring to MLB.com.

Keuchel has already thrown 171 1/3 innings this season. That's close to his previous career-high of 177 2/3 innings. Manager Bo Porter did not say anything about an innings limit for Keuchel, but indicated the team will watch him closely down the stretch. "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 tosses strong start Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel tossed a strong start Tuesday against the Athletics. 

Keuchel allowed two runs, one earned, on five hits over seven innings. He struck out three and walked three during the outing. Keuchel gave up his unearned run in the first inning. With a man on first, Keuchel made a fielding error, allowing the next runner to reach base. With two outs, he gave up a run-scoring single to open the scoring. Keuchel gave up his earned run in the fourth. After striking out Derek Norris to start the inning, Keuchel allowed a single and a run-scoring double to the next two batters. 

The Astros managed a late comeback, giving Keuchel the no-decision. He’ll take on the Rangers in his next start. 


Dallas Keuchel a tough-luck loser Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel threw the ball well Thursday, but came out on the wrong side of a pitcher's duel in a 3-0 loss to the Yankees.

Keuchel tossed an eight-inning complete game in the start, and had trouble in just one inning, as he allowed three runs in the third. He was charged with three earned runs on seven hits overall, while striking out five batters and throwing 65 of 96 pitches for strikes in the loss.

Keuchel is now winless in his last four starts, despite tossing three quality starts in that time. He heads into his next start, set for Tuesday against the A's, with a 10-9 record and 3.12 ERA on the season. 


Dallas Keuchel picks up a quality start Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel turned in a quality start Friday against the Red Sox. 

Keuchel allowed three runs on six hits over seven innings of work. He struck out eight and walked three during the outing. Keuchel was hurt by the long ball early. After putting David Ortiz on base to open the fourth, Keuchel gave up a two-run shot to Yoenis Cespedes. Keuchel settled in for a few innings before giving up an additional run in the seventh. 

Keuchel left with the game tied, giving him a no-decision. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.


Dallas Keuchel struggles after promising start to outing Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel faded after a strong start to Sunday's outing against Texas, leading to a 6-2 loss. The lefty allowed five runs on six hits and three walks, while striking out four in six innings.

Keuchel was outstanding over his first three innings, allowing just a walk in three scoreless frames as Houston jumped out to a 2-0 lead. The wheels then started to come off in the fourth inning. Alex Rios cut the lead to 2-1 on an RBI double with no outs. Adam Rosales tied the game with a infield single with two outs. 

Texas took a 3-2 lead in the fifth on a wild pitch. Elvis Andrus gave Texas a two-run lead with a sac fly.

Adrian Beltre then gave Texas a three-run lead with a home run leading off the sixth. Keuchel loaded the bases after Beltre's home run, but worked out of the jam with a double play.

''I wasn't very good the last three innings, and that was the game,'' Keuchel said.

He is expected to make his next start Friday at Boston.


Dallas Keuchel gives up one run in no-decision Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel didn't factor into Tuesday's decision, allowed one earned run on five hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out four in his team's 2-1, 15-inning loss to the Phillies.

Keuchel surrendered a solo home run in the second inning but otherwise kept the opposition off the scoreboard, though he needed 114 pitches to get through seven innings. He owns a 2.89 ERA and 108:34 K:BB ratio in 143 1/3 innings. Keuchel is slated to face the Rangers Sunday.


Report: Dallas Keuchel staying with Astros


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The Astros have taken starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel off the trade market, sources told FOX Sports. The left-hander is 1-1 with a 0.56 ERA in his last two starts after going 1-3 with a 6.07 ERA in his previous five starts.

Dallas Keuchel stays hot in shutting down Athletics


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Astros ace Dallas Keuchel continued to rebound from a miserable slump with his second straight strong outing Wednesday against Oakland.

Kuechel, who blanked Miami for seven innings last week, yielded just one run in pitching his first complete game since May 25. He gave up five hits, walked three and fanned five. His lone mistake was sent over the fence by Josh Donaldson in the second inning.

He will attempt to maintain his momentum Tuesday in Philadelphia.


Astros could be active at trade deadline


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Astros are looking to trade DH Chris Carter, according to the New York Post. Carter is batting .212 with 111 strikeouts in 92 games, but he has 21 homers and is slugging .474.

The Post reports the Astros would also be willing to listen to trade offers for starting pitchers Jarred Cosart, Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh.


Astros now open to trading young starters


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow indicated earlier this season that young starters such as Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh were not going to be used as trade chips because they were too valuable for the team's future. But times have changed, according to Fox Sports.

A shortage of starting pitchers among some contenders could result in strong packages offered for Keuchel and/or McHugh. And the Astros have become open to exploring such a deal.

"We do seem to have an excess of pretty good young starters so we wouldn't rule out anything," 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."

Both Keuchel and McHugh, however, have cooled off as the weather has heated up. The former is 0-4 in his last six starts with 57 hits allowed in his last 36 2/3 innings. McHugh has lost his last six starts, though a lack of run support has played as big a role in that misery as poor performance.


Dallas Keuchel gives up 12 hits in loss Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel took a loss Saturday after surrendering four runs (three earned) on 12 hits and two walks in five innings and striking out five in his team's 4-3 defeat against the White Sox.

Keuchel (9-6) gave up a run on an infield single and another on a hit-by-pitch, but the decisive run came on a double in the bottom of the fifth that broke a 3-3 tie. He owns a 3.29 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 92:30 K:BB ratio in 120 1/3 innings. Keuchel is slated to face the Marlins Friday.


Is Dallas Keuchel sliding out of relevance?


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/15/2014) Going back to spring training, Dallas Keuchel didn't appear to be a must-start option for the Astros' rotation, much less for a Fantasy one. Yet, by late May, Keuchel had become a popular starter in standard mixed leagues. Just as quickly as the lefty gained Fantasy notoriety, he threatened to become an afterthought with a four-game slide to end the first half.

In each of those four starts, Keuchel had allowed at least four earned runs and more than a hit per inning, and he netted four or fewer strikeouts.  As Keuchel's ERA has climbed from 2.38 to 3.20, owners for the most part haven't dropped him, but he's now benched in roughly 40 percent of the leagues he had been starting in a month ago.

Much of Keuchel's success has been chalked up to his sinker, which has enabled him to pile up grounders on 63 percent of hit balls and limit opponents to six home runs in 115 1/3 innings. During his recent slump, Keuchel has seen his ground ball rate shrink slightly, but that hasn't really been the source of his troubles.

It's Keuchel's slider that has betrayed him, and it was a large part of his surprising success for much of the season. It's been Keuchel's best swing-and-miss pitch and has helped him to raise his whiff rate from last season's 9.9 percent to 10.9 percent. His whiff and strikeout rates have fallen dramatically over these last four starts, and during the same period, Keuchel has lost some of the vertical movement on his slider -- nearly an inch, according to the PitchFX data on BrooksBaseball.net.

For Keuchel's two most recent starts, he had been dealing with swelling in his left wrist, and his worst start came just over a week after he sustained the injury. Keuchel improved slightly in his final outing before the break, lasting 6 2/3 innings with modest increases in his swinging strike (from three to seven) and strikeout (from one to three) totals.

Given that Keuchel's struggles began before he sustained his wrist injury, health is clearly not the only culprit, but getting rest over the break can only help. His problems stem from location rather than velocity, so perhaps with better health and some mechanical adjustments, he can return to his earlier form. Owners should consider benching Keuchel for Saturday's start at the White Sox, but they certainly shouldn't drop him. He should also be considered a buy-low target who has a chance to bolster your rotation over the coming weeks.


Astros set second-half rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) The Astros have set their rotation following the All-Star break, at least through the first two series.

Manager Bo Porter announced that Scott Feldman, Dallas Keuchel and Jarred Cosart will open the second half in a weekend series against the White Sox, and will be followed by Collin McHugh and Brad Peacock to open a series in Oakland beginning Tuesday. 


Chris Sale earns final AL All-Star spot


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) White Sox starter Chris Sale has been named to the American League All-Star team, beating out pitchers Garrett Richards, Rick Porcello, Corey Kluber, Dallas Keuchel for the final spot. Sale is 8-1 with a 2.08 ERA, a 0.84 WHIP and 102:16 K:BB ratio over 14 starts (95 innings).

Dallas Keuchel has poor inning, but picks up win Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel didn’t pitch particularly well Wednesday, but still managed to pick up a win. 

Keuchel allowed four runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings of work. He walked one and struck out three during the appearance. The Rangers got on Keuchel early. Adrian Beltre managed a run-scoring single in the first inning, which opened the scoring. After loading the bases in the second, Keuchel gave up a two-run double to Daniel Robertson. Shin-Soo Choo then added a sacrifice fly, finishing the scoring. 

Keuchel settled in at that point, giving up three hits over the last four-plus innings. The win brings Keuchel to 9-5 on the year. His next start is likely to come shortly after the All-Star Game. 


Dallas Keuchel roughed up in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel had to settle for a no-decision Friday night against the Angels in Anaheim. The left-hander permitted five runs on 13 hits and one walk while striking out one over five innings of a 7-6 defeat.

Keuchel owns a 3.06 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP over 16 starts (108 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Wednesday at Texas.

Dallas Keuchel anticipates no wrist problems Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel, who was scratched from his previous start with a wrist injury, doesn't expect to have any problems when he takes the hill Friday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

"It was just a matter of rest and treatment," Keuchel said. "Those two days of rest were really good for me. Then I started throwing again and nothing hurt and nothing was sore. I’m ready to go. I didn’t lose anything. Maybe a little bit of strength wise, but throwing the baseball I have no concerns about finishing my pitches or if I’m going to have any strength. My endurance is still there. I was still biking and running and stuff like that, so none of that will affect me."

Keuchel initially suffered the injury sleeping awkwardly on his hand. He'll return to a 2.78 ERA and 83:26 K:BB ratio in 103 2/3 innings.


Astros tinker with rotation for weekend series


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Astros ace Dallas Keuchel has recovered from a wrist injury and is expected to start Friday against the Angels. He was originally slated to pitch Thursday, but Brett Oberholtzer will do so instead.

Keuchel, who missed his last start, had slumped after a brilliant run. He gave up eight runs in his last 13 innings. Oberholtzer earned another outing with a strong performance Saturday against Detroit.
