Texas Rangers assign LHP Dallas Keuchel for task

The Texas Rangers assigned left-hander Dallas Keuchel for the task before Sunday's series finale against the Boston Red Sox

The 34-year-old Keuchel was 0-2 with a 12.60 ERA in two beginnings for the Rangers

He's 2-9 with a 9.20 ERA in 14 consolidated begins with the White Sox, Arizona, and Texas this season

"I believed I pitched a ton better than the line read," Keuchel said after the game

Keuchel, the 2015 AL Cy Young Award champ, joined the Rangers as a free specialist on July 26

They reviewed lefty John King from Triple-A Round Rock to take his spot on the program
