Since the Houston Astros were slapped with one of the biggest cumulative penalties in the history of the game of baseball for their scheme to steal signs with technology in their World Series-winning 2017 season, few of their players have spoken out at all. Even the ones that have constantly talked and talked have refused to do so, for the most part, laying low.
Dallas Keuchel, who is no longer with the club, has spoken and he has apologized for the role he played in the matter. The left-handed pitcher, who will be with the Chicago White Sox for the upcoming season, also made it clear that his former teammates should also say ‘sorry,’ too. In doing so, the man that played for the Atlanta Braves last year is the first man to say those words. Keuchel did not confirm his specific role in the scheme, though he did know about it and did little to stop it, prompting him to make this gesture.
