Dallas Keuchel, 34, secures minor league contract with Arizona Diamondbacks, reports say

The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a minor league contract with former Cy Young Award winner Dallas Keuchel, according to multiple reports.

The veteran left-hander was recently released by the Chicago White Sox after having a 2-5 record with a 7.88 ERA through eight starts. He was in the final season of a $55 million, three-year deal.

The 34-year-old Keuchel won the American League Cy Young Award with the Houston Astros in 2015 and is also a two-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove winner. He’ll try to recapture his old form by reuniting with pitching coach Brent Strom, who was with the Astros in 2015 and joined the Diamondbacks during the offseason.

Smart move by Keuchel to accept an MILB assignment. Gives him a chance to fix some things out of the glare. Also it allows the D-backs to dump Bumgarner if Keuchel has a renaissance

Would be nice if Strom can work some magic with him. I'm not holding my breath on that.

I'd be stunned if he isn't finished. He had a 6.82 ERA in the 2nd half of last season too. Every time I saw him this year he was throwing 85 mph batting practice fastballs and missing his spots badly on his offspeed pitches. I don't think there was a single White Sox fan sad to see him go.

After Tuesday’s game, Lovullo announced that Keuchel would be reporting to Cincinnati on Wednesday to join the team's taxi squad to provide coverage in case of a COVID-19 outbreak. It would also give Keuchel a chance to work with Strom.
