The Atlanta Braves have signed free agent pitcher, Dallas Keuchel, to a one year, $13 million deal. Atlanta has been going after Keuchel for a few weeks now. It has been between them and the New York Yankees to see who would land him. The Braves won that duel and Dallas Keuchel will make his Triple A start in Gwinnett on Saturday. This will likely be his only start before being called up to Atlanta.
Keuchel is coming off of his 7th season with the Houston Astros. He had a 12-11 record last year with a 3.74 ERA. Keuchel is a two time all star and a World Series champion. He also won the 2015 American League Cy Young award winner. That year, he had 20-8 record with a 2.48 ERA. If Keuchel can even come close to returning to his former Cy Young self, he will improve the Braves rotation tremendously.
