Mitch Keller (1-5) took the loss Tuesday against the Mariners, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out seven.
This was a step in the right direction for Keller, who has been dreadful in a limited sample size this season. He has a brutal 7.74 ERA and 1.84 WHIP in 43 innings, but he has shown his strikeout upside by posting 58 strikeouts in that span. He lines up to start next against the Brewers on Sunday, which will likely be his last start of the season.
