Nationals GM: Team ‘aggressively trying’ to extend Anthony Rendon

Nationals GM: Team ‘aggressively trying’ to extend Anthony Rendon The Washington Nationals watched their most important player in franchise history leave as a free agent over the winter, and they are doing everything they can to make sure the same doesn’t happen with Anthony Rendon this offseason.

Free agent left-hander Dallas Keuchel hasn’t pitched in a major league game since last October and didn’t participate in spring training. As a result, there’s plenty of concern over how fast Keuchel will be ready to join a team when he ends his months-long stay on the open market and signs. But clubs shouldn’t worry about Keuchel’s preparedness, according to agent Scott Boras, who told Jon Morosi of MLB.com on Thursday that his client could be good to pitch within approximately a week of signing.

Keuchel has been throwing a 95- to 104-pitch sim games every five days to stay in shape, Boras said. We’ve heard that before (linkshere), but the potential one-week time frame is a new development. However, it’s likely worth taking with a grain of salt. For one, it’s not unusual for Boras to publicly talk up a client. Beyond that, it would be reasonable for Keuchel’s next employer to prefer for the 31-year-old to embark on a short minor league tuneup. Doing so would give Keuchel an opportunity to pitch in a real game (or games) before he potentially impacts a major league pennant race.

Boras: Keuchel drew so many scouts, 'we had to open up the hot dog stand'

Boras: Keuchel drew so many scouts, 'we had to open up the hot dog stand' Agent Scott Boras discussed the ongoing free agency of veteran lefty Dallas Keuchel today in an interview with MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM (audio via Twitter). Keuchel is not expected to sign until after midnight on June 2nd, after which time he will be free of draft compensation. It has emerged lately that Keuchel has thrown multiple simulated games, both to prepare himself for a quick reentry to the majors and to offer an opportunity for interested teams to get a look. Boras suggests there has been no shortage of interest from pro scouts. As he put it, “we had so many scouts show up we had to open up the hot dog stand.

Free agent starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel . According to MLB insider Jon Heyman, who broke the Bryce Harper news and seems to have a good relationship with Harper's agent Scott Boras , the Phillies are one of the teams still in on free agent starter Dallas Keuchel .

Dallas Keuchel (/ˈkaɪkəl/, KY-kəl; born January 1, 1988) is an American professional baseball pitcher who is a free agent . He has played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Houston Astros.

Keuchel has garnered plenty of big-game experience, including with the World Series-winning Astros in 2017, and carries a tremendous regular-season track record going back to his 2014 breakout. Nevertheless, the 2015 AL Cy Young winner hasn’t been able to find a team since free agency opened last Oct. 29. Free agent closer Craig Kimbrel is in the same boat, but it’s one that figures to finally reach shore soon.

After midnight on June 2, the day before the draft begins, teams will be able to sign Keuchel or Kimbrel without having to pay anything other than money. Clubs would have to surrender draft compensation before then, which has helped lead to this impasse between MLB and the two high-profile free agents.

Losing out on Dallas Keuchel no great loss for the Yankees.
For an extra couple million dollars Dallas Keuchel chose the Atlanta Braves over the Yankees on Thursday and, by doing so, put himself in a much better place to re-establish his free agent market value at the end of the season. To suggest, however, that this was some sort of missed opportunity on the Yankees’ part — as a few baseball scribes have — is preposterous. These are the same people who vilified the Yankees for not signing Robinson Cano for $300 million-plus in 2013 and passing on paying Manny Machado the same this past winter in favor of DJ LeMahieu.
