Dallas Keuchel rumors: Two AL East teams reportedly expected to get in bidding war for lefty

Both the Rays and Yankees are keeping an eye on Dallas Keuchel.

Tampa Bay and New York could get in a bidding war for the 2015 American League Cy Young winner at midnight on June 2, according to The Athletic.

The odd timing is due to Keuchel getting a qualifying offer by the Astros, meaning if a team signs him they would have to give up their first selection in the MLB Draft this season. The draft pick compensation comes off of Keuchel on June 2 and then any team can pick him up without giving up a selection, or the slot money that comes with it.

The Yankees would lose the 38th pick and $1.952 million of slot money if they were to sign Keuchel before June 2 while the Rays would have to give up the No. 40 selection and $1.857 million.

So, management will fool around for months over picks that low and amounts of money that are pocket change by the standards of the game?
