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.

Unsigned since free agency opened in November 2018, Keuchel turned down two deals from the Astros and had initial interest from the Atlanta Braves.

The Braves, close on the heels of the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East, could still be players for Keuchel, ESPN reported.

Keuchel rejected a one-year, $17.9 million qualifying offer last fall from the Houston Astros and had been seeking a multiyear deal, but now reportedly is willing to accept a one-year prorated deal. Until Monday, teams signing him would have lost a draft pick because he turned down the qualifying offer.

During spring training, Keuchel turned down a one-year, $15 million offer from the Astros, ESPN's Buster Olney reported.

Keuchel, the 2015 American League Cy Young Award winner, compiled a 76-63 record in seven seasons with the Astros. He pitched in 192 games (183 starts) and has a lifetime 3.66 ERA with 945 strikeouts in 1,189 1/3 innings.
