Finding The Next Dallas Keuchel

Prior to 2014, Dallas Keuchel was generally an ineffective pitcher. He made 16 starts in his 2012 debut season, producing an ERA and FIP over 5.00. 2013 came, and Keuchel was viewed as a hybrid long-reliever, meant to shuttle back and forth from the Minors. Dealing with injuries and ineffective starting pitching, the wallowing Astros again inserted Keuchel into the starting rotation...

Before Dallas Keuchel was named the 2015 American League Cy Young Award winner, he was a young left-hander who had won just 21 games combined in his first three MLB seasons.

Breaking down the nature of Dallas Keuchel's contact

Dallas Keuchel won a Cy Young last night, becoming the second pitcher in as many seasons to complete the two-year transition of “some guy with a 5.15 ERA” to “American League Cy Young Award winner.” Keuchel’s career turnaround, as was Corey Kluber‘s, is absolutely remarkable, though the similarities between the two elite hurlers mostly ends there. Kluber, of course,...

Dallas Keuchel gets beard done up by pro before playoff game

If you noticed Dallas Keuchel’s beard during Tuesday night’s American League Wild Card game…you weren’t alone. The Houston Astros ace’s chin curtain seemed to be the talk of Twitter and much like the pitcher’s performance against the New York Yankees, Keuchel’s beard was on point. And for good reason. #Astros’ Keuchel getting cleaned up earlier today by @monster99com...

Making an MVP out of Dallas Keuchel

If I were writing this piece five years ago, the entire premise of the article would seem contrived. Only two pitchers won MVP awards between 1986 and 2010, and no pitcher had won since 1992. Pedro Martinez led the AL by four wins in 1999 (although only 2.5 using RA9-WAR) and didn’t win the MVP. But thanks to Justin Verlander and Clayton Kershaw, voters have begun to acknowledge...

Dallas Keuchel Contract Extension Could Prove Difficult

Dallas Keuchel’s continued progress into an ace is one of the major reasons Houston is contending earlier than anyone predicted. After a good year in 2014, he is a Cy Young candidate and perhaps front-runner for the first place Houston Astros. The right-hander recently expressed interest in a contract extension, and Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow provided a stock response...
