Astros reportedly have one and two-year offers to Dallas Keuchel
The Houston Astros would like to retain free agent Dallas Keuchel, but only on specific terms.
According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, Houston has made contract offers to Keuchel of one and two years. He says the offers are not to Keuchel’s liking.
#Astros have made both one- and two-year offers to free-agent left-hander Dallas Keuchel, sources tell The Athletic. Offers not in range Keuchel is seeking. Desired terms not known.

The word on Keuchel’s free agency has been quiet all offseason, which is strange for a former Cy Young winner. Keuchel has gone 76-63 with a 3.66 ERA over seven seasons with the Astros. The 31-year-old allowed a league-high 211 hits in 204.2 innings last season.
The Phillies are also said to have interest in him.
