  • Pirates Prioritizing Extension For Mitch Keller

    Headshot for Mitch Keller

    A key order of business for the Pittsburgh Pirates and general manager Ben Cherington this offseason remains getting a long-term contract extension done with right-hander Mitch Keller. Contract-extension talks gained traction during the middle of last season, but the up-and-down nature of Keller's performance mixed with business led both sides to pause talks until this offseason. The Pirates view Keller, who is entering his second year of arbitration, as someone the would like to give a contract extension to. "We appreciate a lot about who he is," Cherington said of Keller. "He's one of the guys who checks a lot of boxes. He's a guy we would love to see in a Pirates uniform for a long time. We'll see how that plays out." The 27-year-old was a first-time All-Star in 2023 and went 13-9 with a 4.21 ERA (3.80 FIP), 1.24 WHIP, 55 walks and a career-high 210 K's in 194 1/3 innings over 32 starts.

    Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Mitch Keller will not make his final start of the season on Sunday against the Miami Marlins. The Pirates aren't playing for anything and Keller has already thrown a career-high 194 1/3 innings in his fifth major-league season. The 27-year-old made the All-Star team for the first time in his career in 2023 and finishes with a 13-9 record, 4.21 ERA (3.80 FIP), 1.24 WHIP, 55 walks and a career-high 210 strikeouts in his 32 starts. Keller wasn't as sharp in the second half of the season, though, posting a 5.59 ERA with 21 walks and 81 strikeouts in 77 1/3 innings over 13 starts after the All-Star break.

  • Mitch Keller Spins Eight-Inning Gem In 12th Win

    Headshot for Mitch Keller

    Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Mitch Keller threw eight two-hit innings with one walk and seven strikeouts for his 12th win of the year in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Washington Nationals. The 27-year-old needed a boost in the worst way after being shredded for eight runs allowed on three separate occasions post-All-Star break. Keller navigated through the contact-based Nats lineup with relative ease, keeping loud contact at a minimum. The right-hander came out of the game at 92 pitches after the eighth inning for closer David Bednar to shut it down. Keller has endured a tumultuous year, but the 2023 All-Star has been the closest piece of stability in Pittsburgh's shaky rotation with a 4.04 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 198:52 K:BB in 182 2/3 frames. Next up are the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.
