Does Dallas Keuchel even make the Playoff Roster?

Recommended Posts

Giolito had to go to Katz when Cooper was still here. Katz fixed Lucas, Cease, Rodon and Lopez.

Don’t agree with the bullpen blame people are trying to dump on Katz. Bullpens are volatile from year to year. The Sox have six of the current nine guys under 3.50 ERA.

Bummer has had bad luck, his FIP is 2.89. Kimbrel just go here, and Wright is not a ML pitcher.

If he won't make the playoff roster, then what are we doing giving him starts down the stretch over Lopez?

If he will make the playoff roster but not start, why are we not preparing him for his playoff role by putting him in a relevant role other than starter?

I would assume they're giving him at least some of September to see if he turns it around.

My concern now is with Lynn on the IL, we have no long man. If you run Keuchel out there and he lasts ~2 innings, that could mess up the pen for days.

There is an off day Thursday, and the next two Mondays. They can get by without a fifth starter, if need be, if Lynn is out close to the minimum. They can also bring up a spot starter for a game if need be.

Keuchel Friday, Lopez Saturday is the plan. Maybe Lambert is the second guy after Hamilton?

As fast as he lost his stuff, he could get it back just as fast. He's a veteran and at this point I'd have him on the playoff roster but not as a starter, he's got a month to get his **** together where we can use him as a starter. The thing is, a team doesn't need 5 starters in the postseason so unless someone gets hurt he will most likely be in the bullpen.

Can’t see them eating that salary, but if the recent version is who he is then he shouldn’t be around.  Hopefully he can find his footing and look like a solid #5 heading into next year.

Dear Dallas

You seem like a nice enough guy, please resign yr position as a pitcher as your not good at the sport of baseball. I hear baseball player are good at Golf.

Thank you for yr consideration

Remember when Mark Buehrle had that really rough stretch in 2006?  People wanted to run him out of town.  He turned it around after some time.  Lets hope Keuchel can do the same.  I know with injuries, it's hard to have him skip a couple of starts, but that's what he needs right now.  He's been ass.  He's fine as a 5th starter, the problem is, he isn't being paid as such.

Disagree. He isn't even good enough to be a #5 at this point. #5's are supposed to get bombed night in and night out.

It’s easy to see Keuchel having a bounce back season. I wouldn’t bet on him going back to being a 3.50 ERA pitcher, but if he finds his control again he could be in the low 4s. He’s still throwing the same pitches he was the last 4 or 5 years. His velocity hasn’t changed but his control absolutely has. If he gets his pitches landing where he wants them then he could be an effective starter next year

Lol. He's scheduled to make 18 million in 2022. He'll be on the roster unless he's traded, but at this point, who would trade for him?

The answer is Yes he will, but how he's pitching he shouldn't.  I sure don't trust him coming out of the pen at an important in the playoffs.  And you sure as hell can't have him start a game.

Someone traded for JA Happ. If you're willing to eat salary, you could get something for him.
