Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Shifting to relief role
Manager Rocco Baldelli said Saturday that Keuchel isn't in line to make another start and has been moved to the bullpen, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Keuchel made his sixth start of the season Wednesday, giving up four runs on six hits and three walks over four innings in a no-decision against the Rays. With the veteran southpaw now sporting a 5.34 ERA and 1.52 WHIP through 30.1 innings with the big club this season, he'll cede his spot in the rotation to Bailey Ober, who will stick around in a starting role after limiting the White Sox to two runs over five innings Friday against the White Sox after being recalled from Triple-A St. Paul. Keuchel could be available to make his first appearance out of the bullpen as soon as Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Lasts just four innings
Keuchel did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks over four innings against the Rays. He struck out three.
Most of the damage against Keuchel came in the second inning when the lefty allowed a leadoff triple to Curtis Mead to open the frame. The veteran would only make it through four innings while issuing multiple walks for the fifth time in seven starts this season. Keuchel had allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts coming in, though he's now been hit with no-decisions in each of his last four outings.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Fans six in no-decision
Keuchel did not factor in the decision Friday, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over five innings during the Twins' win over the Mets. He struck out six.
Keuchel rebounded well after being tagged for five runs by the Rangers in his last outing. The only damage against him Friday came from Francisco Lindor's two-run double in the fourth inning. Keuchel set a season high with six punchouts and now owns a 14:9 K:BB and a 4.78 ERA through 26.1 MLB frames. He's lined up to face the Rays at home next week.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Hit hard by Texas
Keuchel allowed five runs on five hits and one walk while striking out two batters over 3.1 innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Saturday.
Four of the five hits given up by Keuchel went for extra bases, including two-run homers by Adolis Garcia and Sam Huff. The veteran southpaw came into the contest having pitched 18 innings without surrendering a long ball on the season. Keuchel got the start after working in a piggyback role his last time out, but it's uncertain if he'll remain in the rotation moving forward. He's posted a 5.06 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 8:7 K:BB across 21.1 frames on the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Rejoining rotation
Keuchel will re-enter the Minnesota rotation after Bailey Ober was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Ober has struggled in the second half and the Twins have sent him down to the minors both for performance- and workload-related reasons. With Ober out of the picture, Keuchel -- who hasn't allowed a run in his last two appearances (one start) -- will get a longer look as the Twins' No. 5 starter. The veteran left-hander is tentatively lined up to start Sunday in Arlington against the Rangers.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Piggybacks Bailey Ober on Sunday
Keuchel tossed five scoreless frames of long relief Sunday in the Twins' 7-6 win over the Rangers in 13 innings, striking out three while scattering five hits and two walks.
After starting in each of his first three appearances with Minnesota, Keuchel ended up shifting to the bullpen to close out the weekend with the Twins bringing back Joe Ryan from the injured list Saturday. Though it may not have been manager Rocco Baldelli's plan heading into Sunday's contest, Keuchel ended up piggybacking starter Bailey Ober, who tossed just four innings before being lifted for what appeared to be performance-related reasons. After Ober put the Twins in a 5-0 hole heading into the fifth inning, Keuchel stepped and kept the Rangers off the board while the Twins rallied for four runs in the sixth and one run in the ninth to send the game to extras. Baldelli has yet to comment on Keuchel's role moving forward, but it's possible the veteran lefty gets another look as a starter as part of a six-man rotation on the heels of the stellar long-relief outing....

Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Role uncertain with Ryan returning
Keuchel isn't scheduled to start either of the Twins' final two games with the Rangers this weekend but could be available out of the bullpen, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "There are a few different scenarios, but not really any one scenario that I'm going to sit here and announce because, frankly, I am not 100 percent sure," manager Rocco Baldelli said of Keuchel's role moving forward.
The Twins will welcome Joe Ryan (groin) back from the 15-day injured list to start Saturday's game, bringing the Minnesota rotation back to full strength. After getting called up from Triple-A St. Paul earlier this month, Keuchel was expected to have only a short-term stay with the club, but he made a case for the Twins keeping him around as part of a six-man rotation. Though Keuchel failed to escape the second inning in his second start with the Twins on Aug. 11 in Philadelphia, he rebounded nicely his last time out this past Sunday versus the Pirates, carrying a perfect game through 6.1 innings while striking out three. Keuchel said that he's been throwing shorter bullpen sessions to stay prepared for a potential move to a relief role, but if he ends up going unused behind Ryan on Saturday or Bailey Ober on Sunday, it could be an indication the Twins plan to have him make a start during next week's series with the Guardians....

Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Carries perfecto into seventh
Keuchel (1-1) earned the win Sunday, allowing one hit and zero walks over 6.1 scoreless innings in a 2-0 victory over the Pirates. He struck out three.
Keuchel had not allowed a baserunner through six, then was removed with one out in the seventh after Bryan Reynolds broke up the perfect game with a double. Keuchel, making just his third start for the Twins since initially inking a minor-league deal in June, threw a season-high 85 pitches and recorded his first three strikeouts of the campaign. Prior to joining the Twins, Keuchel had recorded a 1.13 ERA over 32 innings in Triple-A, hinting that the 2015 Cy Young award winner may still have something to offer. He'll face a much stiffer test in his next projected start during a weekend series at home against the Rangers.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Pushed back to Sunday
Keuchel's next start for the Twins will come Sunday against the Pirates, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.
Keuchel will get another start after being roughed up by the Phillies his last time out, but he'll be pitching on eight days' rest as the Twins take advantage of off days to push him back. Joe Ryan (groin) is slated for a rehab start this weekend, so it's possible this will be Keuchel's last chance to show he should stick around.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Chased early by Phils
Keuchel (0-1) took the loss Friday, coughing up six runs on six hits and two walks over 1.2 innings in a 13-2 rout at the hands of the Phillies. He failed to strike out a batter.
After a promising first start for the Twins, Keuchel reverted back to being the pitcher who posted a 9.20 ERA in 60.1 innings last season. The 35-year-old southpaw managed to escape the first inning unscathed thanks to a double play, but the first five Phillies to come to the plate in the second reached base, including back-to-back doubles by Nick Castellanos and Bryson Stott to lead off the frame. Minnesota is hoping to get Joe Ryan (groin) back soon and the team has off days coming up Monday and Thursday which would allow it to go with a four-man rotation. If Keuchel does make another start, it would likely come at home next weekend against the Pirates.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Rewarded with another start
Keuchel is scheduled to start Friday's game in Philadelphia.
The veteran southpaw will get at least one more turn through the Twins rotation while Joe Ryan (groin) remains on the 15-day injured list. In his Twins debut last Sunday versus the Diamondbacks, Keuchel failed to strike out a batter over five innings, but he allowed just one run on eight hits and two walks.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Gives up just one run
Keuchel allowed one run on eight hits and two walks and did not strike out a batter in five innings of work Sunday against the Diamondbacks. He did not factor into the decision.
The eight hits were a lot, but Keuchel managed to give up just one extra-base knock, which was a Carson Kelly double to lead off the fifth. The Diamondbacks would end up scoring that inning before Keuchel's day was over after 74 pitches. The 34-year-old doesn't miss many bats, but his ability to induce weak contact should keep him around so long as Joe Ryan (groin) is out. Keuchel tentatively lines up to face the Phillies on the road in his next start.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Lined up to start Sunday
Keuchel will make his Twins debut in a start Sunday versus the Diamondbacks, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Keuchel could get a long look in the Minnesota rotation as Joe Ryan spends at least a few weeks on the IL while recovering from a lingering groin strain. It's hard to know what to expect from Keuchel as a fantasy streaming option, but the veteran left-hander had pitched to an impressive 1.13 ERA with 28 strikeouts across 32 innings (six starts) for Triple-A St. Paul since inking a minor-league contract with the Twins on June 22....

Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Selected to MLB roster
The Twins selected Keuchel's contract from Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Keuchel exercised the opt-out in his minor-league contract with Minnesota on Tuesday, but the Twins suddenly need him as a replacement for Joe Ryan, who has landed on the 15-day injured list because of a groin strain. Keuchel, 35, had registered a stellar 1.13 ERA in 32 innings (six starts) with St. Paul and is back in the majors for the first time since September of 2022.... See More ... See Less
Dallas Keuchel: Opts out of deal
Keuchel opted out of his contract with the Twins on Tuesday, Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
Keuchel signed a minor-league deal with the Twins in late June, and he will now enter the open market after failing to receive a promotion to the majors. The 35-year-old southpaw put up a 1.13 ERA and 1.25 WHIP through 32 innings over six starts with Triple-A St. Paul.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Not opting out
Keuchel did not exercise the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Twins on Friday, Darren Wolfson of Channel 5 Saint Paul reports.
There could be a second opt-out date in the deal, but Keuchel will remain part of the Twins organization for the time being. The veteran left-hander has pitched well at Triple-A St. Paul, registering a 0.90 ERA and 17:8 K:BB in four starts covering 20 innings, but he hasn't had much success in the majors since 2020....

Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Opt-out date looming
Keuchel has the ability to opt out of his minor-league contract with the Twins on Friday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Keuchel has collected a 0.90 ERA with 17 strikeouts over 20 innings since joining the Twins' Triple-A affiliate in St. Paul. The Twins have not yet offered any hints as to whether he could be promoted soon, though. Keuchel, 35, holds a 6.35 ERA at the major-league level over the previous two seasons.... See More ...

Twins' Dallas Keuchel: Gets minors deal from Twins
Keuchel signed a minor-league deal with the Twins on Thursday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
The veteran southpaw has not pitched since Sept. 2, 2022 as a member of the Rangers. He had an effective pandemic year in 2020, but Keuchel sports a 6.35 ERA over 222.2 innings since 2021. It's possible the Twins will turn to him later this summer as a depth starter if he is pitching well in the minors.... See More ... See Less
