The Atlanta Braves inked former Cy Young Award Winner Dallas Keuchel to a one-year deal on Thursday night.

With that development, and the quick turnaround for his start with Gwinnett, time is already running out for Kevin Gausman. While it seems likely that Gausman will make his next start on Monday against the Pirates, there are questions about his future and if that may be his final start for the Braves.

There are a few options for the Braves and Gausman at this point, and they include a move to the bullpen, accepting a minor league assignment, asking for a release, or somehow staying in the rotation. 

What both sides agree on is still to be seen, but the expectation is that he'll be out of the rotation as soon as Keuchel is ready to join Atlanta.
