Dallas graduated from Bishop Kelley High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2006 – where he was a two-time “Pitcher of the Year” in his conference – and also played quarterback for the football team. He attended the University of Arkansas from 2007-09 and helped lead the Razorbacks to the semifinals of the 2009 College World Series.
Dallas is the 2015 American League Cy Young Award winner, a three-time Rawlings Gold Glove Award winner and a 2015 A.L All-Star. He won his third consecutive Gold Glove Award in 2016 despite his season being cut short in late-August due to left shoulder inflammation. Dallas is the only pitcher in Astros history to win the award for fielding excellence. On April 15, 2016, he extended his home winning streak to 17 games by leading Houston to a 1-0 win over the Tigers. The streak dated back to his final start of the 2014 season – on September 20 vs. Seattle – and was the longest home winning streak in club history and tied for the eighth-longest in MLB history.
Dallas is now in only in sixth season with the Astros and is the longest continuously tenured pitcher on the staff.
