  • Dallas Keuchel

It was recently reported that the Yankees and Cardinals were two other teams showing interest in the former Cy Young victor.

The Braves have agreed to sign left-handed starter Dallas Keuchel, according to David O'Brien of the Athletic.

The Braves, surprise champions of the National League East a year ago, were outspent and outmaneuvered by division rivals Washington, Philadelphia and NY this winter, and their rotation deficiencies, in particular, were more than evident one-third of the way through this season.

As of Monday - the beginning of the 2019 MLB Draft - both Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel were no longer tied to draft-pick compensation as a result of being tendered and rejecting one-year, $17.9-million qualifying offers from their previous teams. The Braves, who have Julio Teheran, Max Fried, Mike Foltynewicz and Mike Soroka in their rotation, will likely demote struggling starter Kevin Gausman to the bullpen to make room for Keuchel. This at times necessitated an over-reliance on the cutter, now his best pitch, which got Keuchel into trouble in 2018, as he lost eight of his first 13 starts. He gets the ball on the ground.

Keuchel earned his second All-Star nod in 2017 and was 14-5 with a 2.90 ERA in 23 regular-season starts, helping lead Houston to its first World Series title. Over the past three seasons, he posted a 3.77 ERA (107 ERA+) while averaging 173 innings per year. The former Cy Young victor (2016) is a two-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove award victor.

Keuchel, 31, had previously spent his entire seven-year big-league career with the Houston Astros.
