Dallas Keuchel is a debatable pitcher. For some people, Keuchel would be a good signing. While for others it would not be worth the value. The first year amateur player draft is approaching. And it’s after that draft that Dallas Keuchel will likely be signed. So for this piece, we look to three teams who could land Dallas Keuchel.
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees have dealt with injuries all season. And as of this writing, the Yankees are down two-fifths of their intended starting rotation. Ace, Luis Severino, and James Paxton are on the Injured List, and we have also seen the struggles of JA Happ. So the signing of Dallas Keuchel can aid the Yankees and strengthen their rotation. Dallas Keuchel is a left-handed pitcher, which is always favorable in Yankee Stadium. Add in Keuchel’s big game performance history, and you make a healthy Yankee rotation even more dangerous.
Since the end of the 2018 season, the Philadelphia Phillies have bolstered their roster. One area that was not fortified quite as well as the others was the starting rotation. The Phillies ace, Aaron Nola has not pitched as an ace is expected. So bolstering the rotation with the addition of Dallas Keuchel would aid the Phils in their playoff efforts. From the moment Bryce Harper was signed, the Phillies put a target on their backs in the NL East Division. They can strengthen their claim to that NL East throne with another rotation general and former Cy Young award winner. And a man who specializes in keeping the ball down. An optimal skill in the tiny confines of Citizen’s Bank Park.
St. Louis Cardinals
Much like many teams at this point in the season reinforcements are always welcomed. And the Cardinals are in the midst of a battle atop the NL Central. Where reinforcements like Dallas Keuchel would be of much help. The Cardinals are going to be fighting all season. One aspect of that fight will be with control. Keeping the baseball in the yard has plagued the Red Birds thus far this season. But keeping the ball in the ballpark and on the ground is a specialty of Dallas Keuchel.
