5-Dallas Keuchel

The Snakes dished out some punishment one AL West All-Star pitcher in Felix Hernandez earlier this week. Let’s see how they do on Saturday against Keuchel, who started the Midsummer Classic for the American League. The 27-year old left-hander leads the league in wins with 12 and shutouts with 12. Keuchel is also second in innings pitched with 151 and third in ERA at 2.32. He has to be considered one of the front-runners for the AL Cy Young Award along with Oakland’s Sonny Gray and Tampa’s Chris Archer. It will be fun to see Keuchel work against the predominantly right-handed hitting D’backs.
