They then sat on the market after the season began in part because no team wanted to give up the draft-pick compensation that would have come with signing them.

Free agent pitcher Dallas Keuchel - a Tulsa Kelley alum - and the Atlanta Braves have agreed to a one-year contract that would pay the 2015 AL Cy Young Award victor about $13 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Thursday night.

As far as his numbers, Keuchel owns a 3.77 ERA, posting 3.74 ERA over 34 starts for the Astros in 2018.

"He knows who he is, what he does best - attacking the game plan, improvising as the game goes along". Initially reported by the Athletic, Keuchel agreed to a deal with the Atlanta Braves. "He got ultra-focused on just getting back to his strengths and being himself".

He remained with the club until he became a free agent following the conclusion of last season, and went 76-63 with a 3.66 ERA (484 ER/1,189.1 IP) in 192 games, 183 starts for the Astros. Dallas Keuchel is going to Atlanta. He first reached the major leagues with Houston in 2012.
