ATLANTA — Dallas Keuchel is coming to play for the Atlanta Braves, multiple reports say.
USA TODAY Sports reports the 31-year-old pitcher and the Braves agreed Thursday to a one-year deal worth $13 million, though the deal is not yet official.
Keuchel's contract would include a salary of about $21 million, and he would get a prorated share of that because only about 115 days will remain in the 186-day season, reports the Associated Press.
Keuchel, who pitched with the Houston Astros in 2018, won the American League Cy Young Award in 2015 with a 20-8 record, 2.48 ERA and 216 strikeouts in 232 innings.
The left-hander joins a young Braves team, made up of a starting rotation that includes Mike Foltynewicz, Julio Teheran, Kevin Gausman, Max Fried and Mike Soroka.
