With just three weeks remaining before Opening Day, the market for Dallas Keuchel appears to be taking shape.
Heyman added the Philadelphia Phillies are also interested, but they prefer a short-term deal.
Keuchel, along with closer Craig Kimbrel, are the two most prominent free agents still available. The southpaw started this offseason hoping to secure a five-year deal, per MLB Network's Jon Morosi.
It's unclear how strong the interest is on Houston's part to re-sign Keuchel. ESPN.com's Buster Olney reported Monday the two sides hadn't engaged in "recent weeks."
The Phillies have already handed out two big free-agent contracts, giving Andrew McCutchen $50 million over three years and Bryce Harper $330 million over 13 years. They have $16.6 million available this season before hitting the luxury-tax threshold, per Spotrac.
Keuchel was one of the most prominent starting pitchers hitting the open market last winter. He posted a 3.74 ERA, but allowed an MLB-high 211 hits in 204.2 innings with the Astros in 2018.
