Anyone know what Keuchel has been doing (if anything) to stay in game-ready shape? I don't see how we could sign him today and pitch him Sunday, unless he's been pitching in competitive environments for a month or more.

Been pitching at the Boras Sports Training Institute.

That sounds like a joke but that's what he's been doing to stay in shape. Hasn't faced live hitting so who knows how his stuff fares until games. He will need a couple games in A/AA and another few in AAA before an MLB start according to Twitter baseball guys.

Quote:
Boras told MLB.com that Keuchel, the 2015 AL Cy Young winner, has been throwing simulated games every five days to stay in shape. Keuchel has been throwing between 95 and 104 pitches in those outings.

Either Ponce De Leon, Helsley, or Reyes.

Cabrera and Wacha can't be considered.

Reyes was considered, but I think that boat has sailed. Maybe next time around.

I think it's Ponce. But that liked what they saw yesterday with Wacha.

I think it is impressive that Jose DeLeon has as many votes as Michael Wacha.

Well, you got to be a damned fine pitcher to lose that many games.*

*For you younguns out there, that was exactly what was said about Jose De Leon on more than one occassion.

I think they were planning on Reyes until he got shelled in Memphis.

Sounds like Hrabosky analysis.

Might as well do a bullpen start. Tony did it a few times

That's a possibility; but I would say if they brought up Ponce or Woodford that is basically what it will turn into anyway. Especially at Wrigley.
