    If you look at Dallas's advanced stats like FIP and xFIP they aren't really all that bad. Last year he was a little better than what his advanced stats said he should be. This year they are much worse. His BABIP is 331. I think he is just getting very unlucky. I would try to sign him to a long term deal with his depressed value.

    Keuchel has been good over the last 5 starts. Hinch left him in for one inning too long against Texas, if not for that inning 4 of his last 5 would look really good.

    More noticeably in those 32 innings he has a 34 to 3 K/BB ratio, and nearly a 2 to 1 GB rate. So he's getting ground balls, striking people out, and not walking people. I think he's gonna be fine moving forward, but I could use a string of good starts without having to add a qualifier before I start to feel really good about him.
