Keuchel could be this year’s Arrieta for Phillies

MLB.com

When the market didn't play out the way Jake Arrieta and agent Scott Boras were hoping it would last offseason, the right-hander ultimately signed with the Phillies in March for $75 million. He only got three years, though, which made it a shorter-term deal than than he and Boras had been seeking.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand predicts the free-agent odyssey of Dallas Keuchel — another Boras client who, like Arrieta, won a Cy Young Award in 2015 but has regressed some in recent years — will reach a similar conclusion.

The Phillies seem unwilling to meet Keuchel's demand for a five-year contract, but they could swoop in if he proves amenable to taking a four-year deal later in the offseason, according to MLB.com's Todd Zolecki.
