Braves Steal Keuchel From Yankees

Published

on

Seemingly destined for the Bronx, Dallas Keuchel is instead headed to Hotlanta (CBS Sports).

Though it seemed almost a forgone conclusion that free agent LHP Dallas Keuchel would be joining the New York Yankees, a shocking twist that came from seemingly out of nowhere proved otherwise.

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reported late Thursday night that the Atlanta Braves had signed the 2015 American League Cy Young winner to a one-year deal pending a physical. The Braves have yet to confirm this but Feinsand went on to report that Keuchel is slated to pitch for Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

Rumors had been abundant all week that General Manager Brian Cashman and the Yankees were in deep on Keuchel and that his signing was only a matter of time. After all, it made perfect sense for New York to bring in the two-time All-Star to help fill the void left by Luis Severino’s absence. Braves GM Alex Anthopolous had other ideas and snatched up Keuchel from his team’s storied World Series rival. Keuchel’s deal is reportedly for $13 million.

For Atlanta, the signing is a wise one. Keuchel’s presence will take pressure off Mike Foltynewicz as he attempts to regain his 2018 form and will aid Julio Teheran, who has done a solid job carrying the weight of the rotation. The Braves have struggled at times throughout the season but have kept pace with National League East leading Philadelphia and are only two games back as of 6/6.

Can Atlanta’s big acquisition help them regain ground on Bryce Harper and the Phillies, or is it being given too much credit? As always, let us know on Twitter at @HomeRunDaily.
