Dallas Keuchel News
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel improved to 5-1 with a strong performance in Thursday's victory. Keuchel tossed six frames and allowed six hits, two runs, two walks and struck out eight. The lefty recorded his season high in strikeouts and it was just the third time this season he had five or more K's in a game. The lefty now owns a 4.14 ERA with a matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday. Keuchel is best served in deeper leagues in favorable matchups.
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel didn't have a great start by any means in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles. However, he did just enough to help lead the team to victory and earn his fourth win of the year. Keuchel pitched five innings and allowed eight hits, one walk and four earned runs while recording just two strikeouts. He is now 4-1 on the year with a 4.53 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. He's had an extremely uneven year, making him hard to trust for fantasy purposes. He's expendable in shallow leagues, but is worth a roster spot in most deep leagues. His next start will be on Thursday against the Detroit Tigers.
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel picked up another no-decision on Sunday versus the New York Yankees. The veteran left with the bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth and no outs recorded. He would finish with a final line of six hits, three runs (one earned), two walks and struck out four in four innings. The lefties 4.28 ERA this season is a far cry from his 1.99 ERA in 2020. Keuchel doesn't offer strikeout upside and is best suited as a streamer in most formats. He will look for better results versus the Baltimore Orioles on Friday.
Dallas Keuchel had a great first year with the White Sox, going 6-2 with a 1.99 ERA over 63 1/3 IP. Unfortunately, no pitcher is due for more negative regression. His 3.98 xFIP was nearly two full runs higher than his ERA, and Baseball Savant's expected ERA metric liked him even less at 4.39. Lest you think some sort of contact suppression was in play, his xBA of .282 was much higher than his .218 average against. Likewise, his .397 xSLG was 100 points higher than his actual .286 mark. He also finished the campaign with zero DFS, suggesting that Keuchel is no longer the defensive standout he once was. Keuchel appeared to change his pitch mix to get more strikeouts, most notably throwing more cutters (20.2% in 2019, 29.7% last year) at the expense of his signature sinker (48.9% to 33.1%). It didn't work, as Keuchel's 16.3 K% was as low as it typically is. Furthermore, Keuchel's cutter only posted a 28.8 GB% against his sinker's 62.4%. What we have here is a former Gold Glover who has become a neutral defender, a ground ball specialist pitching away from grounders, and one of the most fortunate pitchers in the league. His ADP of 195.78 isn't expensive, and yet you're still better off rolling the dice on somebody with upside.
