It's not often that a former Cy Young and World Series champion pitcher remains on the market this long, but that's where we sit with former Houston Astros' starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel. Although, despite still being on the sidelines, Keuchel is expected to find a team at some point, possibly even soon.
With that in mind, let's take a look at three potential landing spots for Keuchel.
3. Atlanta Braves
Keuchel, as with most teams, could bring some much-needed depth to the Atlanta Braves' rotation. And with this younger Atlanta squad, he could also provide valuable veteran presence and experience. The Braves currently have a 4.44 ERA, which ranks 17th in the MLB this season.
2. Milwaukee Brewers
The Milwaukee Brewers have a superstar in Christian Yelich on the offensive end, but their pitching staff hasn't matched his MVP-level production so far in 2019. The Brewers' pitching staff currently has a 5.21 ERA this season, so adding a former Cy Young and World Series winner like Keuchel could be a welcomed addition of depth in their rotation. Especially for a team trying to make its first run to the World Series since 1982.
1. New York Mets
The New York Mets' pitching staff has seen a rough start to the season as a whole, with a team ERA of 5.40 so far in 2019. With star pitcher Jacob deGrom reportedly getting an MRI on his pitching elbow, signing Keuchel could quickly become that much more of a priority than it may have already been for New York.
