Phillies considering former Cy Young Award winner
The Philadelphia Phillies are a little thin in their starting rotation.
So thin they night be looking at a former Cy Young Award winner to help them out.
The team is down Ranger Suarez, Christopher Sanchez and Andrew Painter all missed the opening week with various injuries, leaving the Phillies rotation short to open the season.
One name to keep an eye on, according to Jon Heyman of the New York Post, Dallas Keuchel.
The Phils considered Dallas Keuchel on a minor league deal but haven’t made an offer yet.
The 2015 Cy Young Award winner bounced around between three teams last season, sporting a 9.20 ERA, 2.06 WHIP and 45 strikeouts and 31 walks in 60 2/3 innings (14 starts) between the White Sox, Diamondbacks and Rangers.
The 34-year-old veteran left-hander pitched in 32 games for the White Sox in 2021, going 9-9 with a 5.28 ERA in 162 innings.
I wouldn't look at him as anymore than a stopgap until some of their arms get healthy.
