Dallas Keuchel 2017 Outlook

Sell high.  He has faced some of the worst teams in the majors.  Might as well throw it out there and see what you can get.

3 of his 4 starts against SEA, OAK, & LAA, who are all in the AL West and he'll see multiple times.

It's the third week of the season.  Do you know how many hitters are struggling to find their groove?  First game he caught Seattle with their pants down.  They are hammering the ball now.  You think come summer time he's going to just continue to mow down those teams with the assumption they won't improve at all?

 

May-June his schedule is rough.  Just saying, there are probably people willing to pay for this early performance and you may get a nice return especially if you have other quality pitchers.

Everyone in my league understands baseball, & knows he won't finish with an ERA under 1. They know if they acquire him they'll be getting the worst part of his season. There's really no "selling high" 2 weeks in.

Another amazing start.  Keuchel is now 5-0 and still no one is talking about him.

I like what I see so far. Very good GB% and HR/9. Of course he is aided by a completely ridiculous strand rate, but I predict he will have a 3.2 - 3.5 ERA the rest of the way.

He draws the Angels on Friday night.

Last year he was 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA vs them.

And in his magical 2015 he was 3-1 with a 1.71 ERA.

I see no reason why he can't keep on rollin'!
