After delivering his second straight quality start in Thursday night's win over Toronto, Dallas Keuchel is starting to feel like his old self.

"I never intended to have a 4.50 ERA at the end of May," said Keuchel, who was bothered by lower back stiffness late last season and into spring training. "If I had to pick one or the other, stay healthy or have a better statistical two months, I would pick staying healthy because I know what I'm capable of doing."

 

Throwing just 21 total innings over his last four starts, going deeper into games in an obvious goal for the 33-year-old lefty.

"It's going to take a little bit more effort to get there," Keuchel said. "But these last two outings are a good telltale of where I'm (headed) and I'm very happy with the way I commanded the ball the last two outings, aside from a few pitches."
