Houston ace Keuchel placed on DL
HOUSTON >> The Houston Astros placed ace Dallas Keuchel on the 10-day disabled list with a pinched nerve in his neck on Saturday. Keuchel noticed the problem on Wednesday morning after allowing four hits and two runs in a season-low five innings of a 12-2 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.
Keuchel, the 2015 American League Cy Young Award winner, has brushed off a tough 2016 season by opening this year 7-0 with a 1.84 ERA to help the Astros to the best record in the majors. The lefthander has the lowest ERA in the majors and his wins are the most in the AL and tied for most overall.
