Keuchel in discussions with ‘a number of clubs’ – agent

MLB free agent Dallas Keuchel is “in discussions with a number of clubs”, according to his agent Scott Boras.

Keuchel – the 2015 American League Cy Young Award winner is still without a team after leaving the Houston Astros last season.

However, Boras told the MLB Network: “We are in discussion with a number of clubs.”

Keuchel remains a free agent, two days into the MLB season, and he is reportedly committed to waiting for the “right offer.”

Wondering if where I had to go to find this is just a coincidence, or a sign that he’s gotten very desperate indeed….

Sad for Keuchel that he hasn't been signed.

At least preliminarily, it strongly looks like he and Boras misread the market.

Odd that this article if from aol.uk/sport. Once all 30 teams go through their rotations, at least a few of them will conclude "Gee, our #5 starter really can't cut it". Particularly for the teams expected to contend. I wonder if he'll need to have a tune-up or two in a warm minor league city before hitting MLB. I would guess so.

He's apparently throwing 90 pitch simulated games every 5 days. It's possible that he jumps right into the rotation wherever he signs.

He should sign with the Red Sox. They would let him start the next day.

Probably not just the #5 guys. And injuries.
