Keuchel throws 'free and easy' to McCann

Ace lefty Dallas Keuchel, who was away from the Astros on Thursday with an illness, threw in the bullpen Friday afternoon to new catcher Brian McCann, with manager A.J. Hinch watching. Keuchel missed the final month of last season with shoulder inflammation, but has thrown off the mound six times, though this was the first time at camp.

Houston Astros’ Ace Dallas Keuchel primed for bounce back season

Houston Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel flipped the proverbial switch back in 2014. After beginning his career in the major leagues with two lackluster seasons, he posted a 2.93 earned run average, 3.21 fielding independent pitching, and 5.0 wins above replacement. He then improved upon those numbers in 2015 by pitching to the tune of a 2.48 earned run average and a 2.91 fielding...

Shoulder an issue for Keuchel throughout '16

Being a competitor, Dallas Keuchel couldn't allow himself to not take the ball every fifth day. He knew his shoulder wasn't feeling well at the start of last spring and -- coming off a season in which he won the American League Cy Young Award -- he also knew his team was counting on him.

Keuchel, Astros agree to $9.15 million, 1-year contract

HOUSTON (AP) Dallas Keuchel and the Houston Astros avoided salary arbitration when the 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner agreed Friday to a $9.15 million, one-year contract following a subpar season. The left-hander, who turned 29 on New Year's Day, was 9-12 with a 4.55 ERA in 26 starts last year and won his third straight Gold Glove after going 20-8 with a career-best 2.48 ERA in...

Keuchel, McCullers will only return if Astros make playoffs

If the Houston Astros want to make the postseason, they’ll have to do it without top starters Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers. At 79-71, Houston sits 3.5 games back of the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles for an AL Wild Card spot. The Astros are 9.5 games back of Texas for the division lead. General Manager Jeff Luhnow spoke with Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle...

Astros lefty Keuchel sent back to Houston for shoulder exam

CLEVELAND (AP) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel has been shut down for now because of inflammation in his left shoulder and sent back to Houston for an examination. Manager A.J. Hinch said Monday that Keuchel wouldn't pitch as planned on Tuesday night in Cleveland. The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner last pitched Aug. 27 against Tampa Bay.

Dallas Keuchel’s Attempts to Adjust Back

Just a couple weeks back, Dave Cameron examined the things that should worry us about Dallas Keuchel. He was more nuanced, but we could break it down into three components: lower velocity, fewer calls on the black, and fewer swings. For a guy that had the third-lowest zone percentage in baseball last year, the latter two seem hugely important for his success. So I asked the Astros’...

Dallas Keuchel: Houston, we have a problem

The Houston Astros entered the season on a short list of favorites in the American League, so their 9-18 start is raising more than a few eyebrows. The same can be said for their star pitcher, Dallas Keuchel. Whether we’re comparing his 2016 season to the entire 2015 campaign or just 2015’s first six games, the reigning American League Cy Young Award winner’s 2016 stats just...

There Are Reasons to Worry About Dallas Keuchel

The Houston Astros are not off to the start they had hoped for. At 3-7, they find themselves in last place in the AL West, and ahead of only the winless Minnesota Twins in the American League overall. The cause of their slow start? The pitching, which ranks 27th in ERA and 24th in FIP. The back end of the rotation has been particularly lousy, with Collin McHugh, Doug Fister, and...

Astros fuming over illegal slide call that cost them the game

The Houston Astros lost their game on Friday against the Milwaukee Brewers when a slide by Colby Rasmus was ruled illegal, and they are understandably upset by the call. Rasmus was ruled to have made a hazardous slide into second base on a ground ball, which resulted in him and batter Jose Altuve being called out for the final two outs of their game in a 6-4 loss (see the play here...
