Keuchel was charged with five runs (three earned) on six hits over 3.1 innings in a loss to the A's on Wednesday in Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series. He struck out four and did not issue a walk.
The lefty was unable to keep the momentum he picked up over his final six starts of the regular season (1.06 ERA, 1.12 WHIP). Known as a groundball specialist, Keuchel let two get up and out of the park in this one (off the bats of Marcus Semien in the second inning and Khris Davis in the fourth). He will get a chance to redeem himself if the White Sox are able to advance to the ALDS.
Keuchel allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings in a no-decision against Cleveland on Thursday.
The Chicago bullpen let him down, but Keuchel did his part with six innings of one-run ball, bringing his ERA for the season under 2.00. It's been a resurgent year for the 2015 AL Cy Young winner after a down season with Atlanta. Keuchel makes up for his lack of swing-and-miss stuff with groundballs galore -- he gave up a mere two homers in 63.1 innings this season. Look for Keuchel to start the second postseason game for the White Sox after Lucas Giolito starts Game 1.
Keuchel, returning from a back injury, said he felt rusty during his return to the rotation Saturday against the Reds, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The results were good for Keuchel, who shut out the Reds for four innings, but the left-hander said the quality of pitches weren't there and referred to the outing as "one of the luckiest starts I've had." Keuchel started for the first time in 13 days, so the rust is to be expected. He'll get one more tuneup Thursday at Cleveland before the playoffs begin.
Keuchel didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Reds, allowing four hits and three walks over four scoreless innings. He struck out seven.
While the veteran southpaw didn't last long enough to qualify for his seventh win of the year, it was otherwise a very successful return from the IL. Keuchel fired 42 of 75 pitches for strikes while lowering his ERA to 2.04, and he'll get one more turn through the rotation Thursday in Cleveland to get stretched out a little more before the playoffs.
Keuchel (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Saturday against the Reds.
Keuchel will return to the mound after spending just over 10 days on the injured list while dealing with back spasms. The southpaw was initially slated to rejoin the rotation Thursday, but the slight delay in his return gave him some extra time to recover while lining him up for the playoffs. Keuchel carries a 2.19 ERA and 1.05 WHIP over 53.1 innings this season.
Keuchel (back) will return from the injured list Saturday and start at Cincinnati, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
The 32-year-old was previously expected to rejoin the rotation Thursday, but the team pushed his return back a few days to line him up for the playoffs. Keuchel has a 6-2 record with a 2.19 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 32:12 K:BB over 53.1 innings this season.
Keuchel (back) won't start Thursday versus the Twins but could pitch this weekend against the Reds, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
The team was previously targeting Thursday for the left-hander's return from the injured list, but Reynaldo Lopez will instead be taking the mound. Keuchel didn't suffer any sort of setback, and manager Rick Renteria said he was pushed back in order to better line up the starting rotation for the playoffs, per James Fegan of The Athletic.
Keuchel (back) remains on track to start Thursday against the Twins, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
This had been the target return date and it sounds like nothing has changed in that regard. It's not official yet, but fantasy managers can expect to have Keuchel back for that matchup. He threw five innings Sept. 6, so he should be able to go deep enough to qualify for the win if he is efficient with his pitches.
Keuchel (back) is tentatively expected to return from the injured list to start next Thursday against the Twins, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Keuchel was placed on the injured list Thursday, retroactive to Sept. 7, so he will be eligible to return for the fourth game of the series against Minnesota. That's an important series between the two leaders in the AL Central.
Keuchel was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with back spasms, retroactive to Sept. 7.
He can return Sept. 17 against the Twins if he requires the minimum stay. Reynaldo Lopez was recalled to presumably take Keuchel's spot in the rotation.
Keuchel (back) will not make his scheduled start this weekend against Detroit, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
The White Sox are reportedly not overly concerned about the lower-back stiffness that forced the veteran lefty to leave his previous start against the Royals early Sunday, but they'll skip his next turn just to be safe. He's expected to be ready to pitch at some point during next week's series against the Twins, which runs from Monday through Thursday. The team hasn't announced who will make a spot start in his absence.
Keuchel (6-2) was credited with the win before leaving Sunday's game against the Royals with lower-back stiffness and is day-to-day, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. He allowed two hits and struck out two over five scoreless innings.
This seems to be good news all things considered; it's not an arm injury, and the fact the White Sox used the term "day-to-day" suggests Keuchel could make his next start. That said, the team may want to wait and see how he feels in the coming days before making any final decisions regarding his status for next weekend.
Keuchel left Sunday's game against the Royals with an apparent injury, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Keuchel was lifted early from his last start with a stomach illness, but this seems to be something new. Scott Merkin of MLB.com noted that Keuchel "looked to be in some discomfort" after a warmup pitch. The lefty completed five innings on just 49 pitches prior to exiting.
Keuchel (illness) will make his next start Sunday against the Royals, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
During his last start Tuesday against the Twins, Keuchel pitched effectively over five innings, but manager Rick Renteria elected to pull the southpaw early while he dealt with a stomach ailment. The fact that the White Sox are already listing Keuchel as a probable starter for the series finale in Kansas City suggests the team doesn't believe the illness will affect his availability heading into the weekend.
Keuchel was limited to five innings during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Twins due to a stomach issue, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. He allowed one unearned run on seven hits with four strikeouts and two walks, and he did not factor in the decision.
The veteran southpaw was still able to reach 85 pitches Tuesday, so the illness likely only shortened the outing by an inning. There was plenty of traffic on the bases, but Keuchel escaped without allowing an earned run as he didn't give up any extra-base hits. The 32-year-old has a 2.42 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB through 48.1 innings, and he lines up to start Sunday in Kansas City, assuming the stomach issue presents no further complications.
Keuchel (5-2) earned the win Wednesday against the Pirates after allowing two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts and three walks over six innings.
The left-hander remarkably managed not to throw a first-pitch strike to any of the 25 batters he faced, but he was still able to deliver a quality start. Keuchel is off to a fantastic start in 2020 with a 2.70 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 26:10 K:BB through 43.1 innings, and he'll look to keep things rolling Tuesday in Minnesota.
Keuchel (4-2) allowed one run on six hits and one walk while striking out three to pick up the win over the Cubs on Friday.
Keuchel was well supported as the White Sox belted six home runs in the 10-1 win, but the left-hander didn't need much to lead them to their sixth straight win. It was Keuchel's longest outing of the season -- 114 pitches -- and third quality start, dropping his ERA to 2.65. Keuchel will aim for his fifth win next Wednesday at home against the worst team in baseball, the Pirates.
Keuchel (3-2) allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out one across 5.2 innings to earn the win Sunday against the Cardinals.
Keuchel retired 15 of the first 17 batters he faced, surrendering only a walk and a single through five frames. However, he met resistance in the sixth inning, allowing three singles and a walk to account for his two earned runs. As would be expected, he generated 10 groundball outs and didn't miss many bats while inducing only eight swinging strikes across 93 total pitches. Keuchel now has a 3.07 ERA across 29.1 innings this season, and he'll look to maintain that success in his next start, currently projected to come Friday at the Cubs.
Keuchel (2-2) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over six innings in a loss to the Tigers on Monday. He struck out four.
The lefty groundballer gave up a homer for just the second time this season. He still managed to spin a quality start, his second in a row. Keuchel's eight-strikeout game against Milwaukee last week was an anomaly, though the 2015 AL Cy Young winner is showing that he can still be an asset in fantasy leagues despite lacking traditional dominance. We'll see if he makes his scheduled start this weekend against the Cardinals.
Keuchel (2-1) suffered the loss against the Brewers on Wednesday, allowing one run on five hits and a walk while striking out eight.
Despite taking his first loss, Keuchel tossed his longest game of the year after failing to complete six innings in his previous two outings. Aside from an RBI single by Eric Sogard in the third frame, the southpaw was lights-out, sending eight batters down on strikes. Across three starts, Keuchel owns a 2.55 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB. He'll look to get back into the win column Monday at Detroit.
