Dallas Keuchel pitches against the Boston Red Sox.

Despite an unsightly 7.88 ERA in eight starts this season for the White Sox, it hasn’t been that long since Dallas Keuchel was an elite — or at least above-average — major-league starting pitcher.

As recently as 2020, he posted a 1.99 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and .217 batting average against, finishing fifth in Cy Young voting. And you may have some recollection of his 2015 season that saw an unknown 27-year-old win the AL Cy Young Award

After signing a minor-league deal with the Diamondbacks, Keuchel has now made his first appearance in his new organization. But it didn’t happen in the big leagues. It happened in an Arizona Complex League game, facing a group of mostly 18- to 21-year-olds from the Rockies organization. Keuchel logged five innings, allowing four runs on seven hits with a walk and four strikeouts.

D-backs fan gets an autograph from Ketel Marte

The last six months for Major League Baseball have been a roller coaster of highs and lows for the sport. But despite concerns that the offseason lockout would have lasting ramifications on the season, things are seemingly back to normal.

Christian Walker homers at Dodger Stadium.

After two months and exactly 200 plate appearances, Christian Walker is batting .203/.295/.469 with 13 homers, eight doubles and 25 RBI in 2022. At first glance, it seems unremarkable. A first baseman batting a tick over the Mendoza line while slugging .469? Chris Carter, is that you? A closer look reveals that, not only are Walker’s offensive numbers far more...

D-backs home runs

While the long ball seemingly abandoned the Arizona Diamondbacks throughout 2021, home runs are back in style for the Snakes this season. The D-backs’ dingers have powered them to an above .500 record in the month of May for the first time since 2017. But they weren’t just good when compared to past seasons for this franchise. For one month,...
