Keuchel, the 2015 AL Cy Young Award victor, went 12-11 with a 3.74 ERA and 153 strikeouts in the 2018 regular season for the Astros and made two postseason starts with a 3.60 ERA and no record.
Until Monday, teams signing either Kimbrel or Keuchel would have lost a draft pick because they turned down qualifying offers.
Craig Kimbrel reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, and now Dallas Keuchel appears to have a new home 24 hours after Kimbrel's deal. He went 12-11 with a 3.74 ERA and 153 strikeouts last season for Houston and then started two playoff games and posted a 3.60 ERA. Per Brown, Keuchel is scheduled to start on Saturday for Triple-A Gwinnett against Durham.

Keuchel had spent his entire career with the Astros after they selected him in the seventh round of the 2009 draft.
He is 76-63 with a 3.66 ERA in seven major league seasons, all with the Astros.
David O'Brien of The Athletic wrote on Twitter that it "likely" is a one-year deal.
It's unclear when Keuchel will join the Braves rotation - it stands to reason he'll require at least a couple of starts in the minors first - or who he'll replace - presumably Kevin Gausman will shift to the bullpen - but Atlanta would seem to be in better position to compete now with another veteran mid-rotation starter in hand. He led the league in wins and innings pitched that season, while his ERA ranked second.
