Dallas Keuchel DFA'd by the White Sox, my first thought was to claim him and hope that Fetter/AJ could turn him around but after looking at his stats I didn't realize he has been THAT bad. He was pretty horrendous last year as well so maybe he is just toast.

He's only 34, which isn't that old for a pitcher, and he's only lost 2 mph off his average fastball, but I would guess that the problem is that his velo was never great to begin with and with even a 2 mph loss plus the reduction in stickum, his FB is pushing the minimum to get MLB hitters out. His FB runs above average was as high as 17 in Houston throwing 90, it's now -5 throwing 88.

Now matter how good your off-speed if you don't have enough FB to set it up, you're going to struggle.
