The 2019 season is already under way and Dallas Keuchel, a former Cy Young Award winner, somehow remains a free agent. Premium starting pitching is hard to come by these days and Keuchel would provide an immediate boost to any team willing enough to sign him. Thankfully for Keuchel, there are still a few teams around the league that could stand an upgrade to their starting rotations.
Here are three teams that need to sign Dallas Keuchel.
1. San Diego Padres
The Padres have one of the better young lineups in baseball, but outside of Chris Paddack and Matt Strahm, their rotation leaves much to be desired. Signing Keuchel would give San Diego an experienced, quality arm that would not only keep it competitive in the NL West now, but into the future as well.
2. Colorado Rockies
The Rockies have a rotation loaded with promising young arms this year, but the club could seriously use an upgrade over Chad Bettis at the back of their rotation. Adding a former Cy Young winner in Keuchel to its rotation would go a long way in improving Colorado's chances of making it back to the postseason.
3. Minnesota Twins
The Twins made some pretty savvy moves in free agency and are a considered a playoff dark horse by several pundits. Adding Dallas Keuchel to their rotation would help make that a reality. He would provide a significant upgrade over Martin Perez and could be the final piece that allows the Twins to challenge the Cleveland Indians for AL Central supremacy.
