Astros | Dallas Keuchel earns first win in June

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 21:51:24 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel allowed four runs on 11 hits in 6 1/3 innings against the Kansas City Royals on Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Staked to a nine-run lead before he ever took the hill, Keuchel just pounded the strike zone, posting a season-low two K's in the process. It was the southpaw's first win since May 28 (and second since April 15), and it broke a three-game losing streak. Still, coming a 20-win season, Keuchel continues to be one of the most disappointing fantasy performers in 2016.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel takes eighth loss

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:11:44 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel dropped to 3-8 after losing his start Tuesday, June 7, against the Texas Rangers. The left-hander went 7 1/3 innings, yielding four runs on 10 hits, including two homers. He also struck out eight and walked none.

Fantasy Tip: While Keuchel's record is very disappointing considering what fantasy owners expected of him this season, he has been better over the past few weeks, as he actually recorded three quality starts in his past four outings entering Tuesday. His walks are also going down, as this was the fourth straight start the reigning AL Cy Young winner issued less than two free passes. Owners will just have to hope he can keep trending up and perhaps regain last year's form.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel eats seventh loss

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 16:11:36 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel dropped to 3-7 on the campaign after losing his start Thursday, June 2, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He went six innings, yielding three runs on six hits and one walk, while also striking out six.

Fantasy Tip: Shockingly, this was the first instance all season where Keuchel was able to churn out quality starts in back-to-back assignments. As a result, despite yet another loss on his record -- now having nearly as many as the eight he had all of last year -- owners have to be happy with the direction he's headed in considering how he looked in the first handful of weeks.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel snaps cold streak

Sat, 28 May 2016 16:49:06 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel snapped a five-game losing streak Saturday, May 28, when he pitched seven innings in a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. It was the first win since April 15 for Keuchel, who entered this game with a 5.92 earned run average.

Fantasy Tip: One win doesn't turn around a season, but there's no doubt Keuchel is a much better pitcher than this season has gone. Part of it has to do with weak Astros hitting, which hasn't entirely turned around yet. Wait and see if Keuchel can string together two wins in a row, at which point it may be safer to put him back in your lineup.

Angels | Rafael Ortega out of Saturday lineup

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:51:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Rafael Ortega will not start Saturday, May 28, against the Houston Astros. OF Shane Robinson is starting and hitting ninth against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Ortega is a lefty and so is Keuchel, and that is most likely the reason for Ortega's absence from the lineup. Robinson carries little fantasy value with a .143 average in the past week and primary pinch-hitting duty late in games. Ortega is a .274-1-9 hitter in 23 games whose primary help comes in DFS leagues. Even so, Ortega doesn't have enough power to merit starting him every time he plays.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel falling behind

Tue, 24 May 2016 10:37:49 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel is falling behind in counts often this year as he struggles. He has fallen behind in counts 37.9% of the time this season. Last year he fell behind to 34.8% of the batters he faced.

Fantasy Tip: Last year's AL Cy Young, Keuchel has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments in 2016. His 5.92 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings leave a ton to be desired. His smoke-and-mirrors act isn't getting it done, and his 3.8 walks per nine innings have really come back to hurt him. Until he becomes more aggressive on the mound, he's likely to continue suffering from bad results. Right now, he's a shaky option that should only be used in the right matchups.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel hit hard

Sun, 22 May 2016 16:52:11 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel allowed seven runs on nine hits while walking one and striking out six over six innings in a loss to the Texas Rangers Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: The defending Cy Young winner continues to struggle. Hang on to him in the hopes he turns things around, but you may want to keep him on your bench until he shows signs of improvement.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel rocked again

Thu, 12 May 2016 19:36:03 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel fell to 2-5 with a loss to the Boston Red Sox Thursday, May 12, allowing eight runs on 10 hits while walking three and striking out four over six innings. His ERA rose to 5.58.

Fantasy Tip: If you drafted the defending AL Cy Young winner, you have no choice but to stick with him. If he isn't on your roster, view him as a potential buy-low candidate.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel looks to get untracked

Fri, 06 May 2016 20:57:05 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel looks to get back on track Saturday, May 7, against the Seattle Mariners after losing three straight starts.

Fantasy Tip: Keuchel was untouchable last season, especially at home, but he allowed five runs and seven hits in just 4 1/3 innings in his shortest start of the season last time out to snap a 17-game home winning streak. He is still considered a must-start fantasy option despite his 2-4 record and 5.11 ERA, but he needs to get it turned around in a hurry.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel struggles again

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:48:25 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel allowed five runs on five hits and struck out three in 4 1/3 innings in his loss to the Minnesota Twins Monday, May 2. It ended a 17-game home winning streak. He's now 2-4 with a 5.11 ERA.

Fantasy Tip: If you own him, you don't have much choice but to wait it out. What's different between he and Adam Wainwright's struggles is that Keuchel doesn't have an extended history of success to fall back on. He faces the Seattle Mariners next, and it's worth consideration to sit him.
