PEARL, Miss. (AP) --- Dallas Keuchel's second start in the minors since signing
with the Atlanta Braves was a little more of a struggle than his first.
The 31-year-old left-hander gave up three runs and 11 hits over seven innings
for Double-A Mississippi of the Southern League on Saturday. He struck out four
and walked one, throwing 106 pitches, including 74 strikes.
Keuchel said he felt good physically and would have a discussion with the
Braves front office to see if his next outing would be in the majors or with
another minor-league affiliate.
The 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner signed a one-year deal on June 7 that pays
him $13 million.
Keuchel pitched seven innings of one-hit ball for Class-A Rome on Monday in his
first game, but wasn't as sharp Saturday. He gave up two runs on three hits in
the first inning.
