Dallas Keuchel has talked about an extension with the Astros this offseason.
After getting a record for a one-year, first-time arbitration eligible player at $7.25 million, it will be interesting to see where the two sides are at in discussions. The Astros could want to offer him a substantial, but team-friendly deal in case he has another season like 2015. On the other hand, Dallas Keuchel could want to bet on himself if it's not at the rate of the top pitchers in the league. Keuchel won the AL Cy Young award, Gold Glove award, led the AL in wins, was an All-Star, and the won the Warren Spahn Award which is given to the best left-handed pitcher in MLB in 2015. He was also second in the AL with a 2.48 ERA and fourth in the whole league in strikeouts with 216. Unless he completely falls off, Keuchel will get a beautiful looking contract and he will be a top choice in fantasy-land among pitchers. Analysis: Mike Cahill
