Keuchel would still be a good fit for the Phillies' rotation. As a left-hander, he'd help to balance an entirely right-handed staff. He's also a ground-ball pitcher who has limited home runs while pitching in Houston's homer-friendly Minute Maid Park, skills that would help him adjust to the also hitter-friendly confines of Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
The Phillies may be wary after the 30-year-old surrendered an MLB-leading 211 hits last year, and his K/9 dropped to just 6.7 in 2018. Still, Keuchel stayed healthy in 2018, starting 34 games - the first time he's crossed the 30-start threshold since 2015 - while issuing less than three walks per nine innings pitched. He also continued to play stellar defense and won his fourth career Gold Glove Award.
