SP - PIT
Expert NoteView More Notes
In his brief MLB career, Keller is the author of one of the unluckiest (2019) and luckiest (2020) seasons in recent memory. So, the best course of action is to essentially ignore his 69 major league innings and focus on his stuff and minor league career. If you do that, there's a lot to like. Keller has a mid-90s fastball to go along with an above average slider and curveball. Over more than 500 minor league innings, he had a 25.5% strikeout rate, a 3.12 ERA, and a 1.15 WHIP. He will likely struggle for wins on the Pirates, but he'll also get a long leash given the dearth of reliable options, and he should face mostly weak offenses in the NL Central. Keller likely won't be a star, but he'll probably outperform where you need to draft him.

Mitch Keller doesn't allow a hit, walks eight in no-decision
Mitch Keller allowed one run on no hits and eight walks while striking out three over five innings in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Indians. He did not factor into the decision.
Keller posted an odd stat line in Friday's no-decision. He didn't allow a hit but walked eight batters. He yielded one run when the Indians scored on a Carlos Santana double-play in the first frame. Keller has not allowed a hit in his last 11 innings pitched. The right-hander finishes 2020 with a 2.91 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 16:18 K:BB over 21 2/3 innings. Keller will compete for a spot in the rotation in 2021.
