And then there was none: Braves reach deal with Dallas Keuchel

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports the deal is for one-year, $13 million ($20 million prorated). The Braves are expected to announce the signing after he passes a physical Friday in Atlanta.

As of Monday - the beginning of the 2019 MLB Draft - both Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel were no longer tied to draft-pick compensation as a result of being tendered and rejecting one-year, $17.9-million qualifying offers from their previous teams.

During his time in Houston, he had amassed a 3.66 ERA (109 ERA+) and 2.76 strikeout-to-walk ratio in almost 200 appearances, and won the AL Cy Young award in 2015.

Blizzard is cancelling a StarCraft FPS to focus on other projects
The StarCraft FPS featured a playable Terran marine gunning down Zerg forces, and there were plans for a playable Zerg, as well. Most notably these projects could be Diablo 4 , which has been rumored for a while now, as well as a sequel to Overwatch .

Though he hasn't appeared in a game since last October, Keuchel should provide a boost to an Atlanta rotation that includes two pitchers with ERAs over 6.00 in Kevin Gausmann and Mike Foltynewicz. "He knows who he is, what he does best - attacking the game plan, improvising as the game goes along. He got ultra-focused on just getting back to his strengths and being himself". The ex-Astros starter was also connected to the Yankees, Twins and Cardinals in recent days after spending all winter searching for a new home. The former Cy Young victor (2016) is a two-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove award victor.

Keuchel had spent his entire career with the Astros after they selected him in the seventh round of the 2009 draft. Over the past three seasons, he posted a 3.77 ERA (107 ERA+) while averaging 173 innings per year.

He also dazzled the Yankees over six shutout innings to win the 2015 AL wild-card game after helping Houston reach the playoffs for the first time since 2005.
