Keuchel will be shut down for the remainder of the season, the Houston Chronicle's Jose de Jesus Ortiz reports.
This move was expected since Keuchel passed the 200-inning mark for the season. With nothing to play for, the Astros want to preserve one of the pleasant surprises from their season. Keuchel ends the season 12-9 with a 2.93 ERA and 1.175 WHIP, a breakout year after two seasons with an ERA above five. Keuchel's 3.21 FIP and 3.20 xFIP also indicate this was no fluke.
