Scott Boras claims the market for Dallas Keuchel is beginning to pick up.

"You really have to let the market come to you," the agent said. "It's amazing that it hasn't in an earlier timeframe. It is now, because we're in discussion with a number of teams about Dallas.

"The best that we can do is that the need for the player and the demand for the players is something where the best pitchers and the best players, in this system -- as it was with [Jake] Arrieta last year or J.D. Martinez, who was a near-MVP -- these guys are not signing until March. It's not because they're not valuable."

The Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies remain linked to Keuchel.
