Koehler walked five, but allowed only one hit and struck out three. Not exactly the most impressive one-hitter, but the Marlins will take it. Koehler has now notched three consecutive quality starts to start the season. He'll look to keep it going on Monday in Atlanta against the Braves. Apr 15 - 10:20 PM

Tom Koehler was saddled with a hard-luck loss Thursday, as he held the Nationals to two runs while striking out six over six innings.

Koehler walked two and gave up just five hits, but unfortunately for him one of the base knocks was a two-run homer off the bat of Jayson Werth. The big right-hander was impressive aside from the one mistake, sitting in the mid-90s while flashing a nasty curveball. He's allowed two runs in each of his first two outings and will try to keep it going next week in a rematch with the Nationals in Miami.
Apr 10 - 7:10 PM

Tom Koehler yielded two runs in six innings in a win over the Padres on Friday.

Both runs scored in his final inning of work. The Padres had the chance to do more damage, but failed to score in the fifth inning despite loading the bases with one out. Koehler struck out one and walked one in the victory. While he's a decent enough fifth starter, he's not all that interesting for fantasy purposes.
Apr 4 - 10:32 PM

Tom Koehler has won the fifth spot in the Marlins' rotation.

Meanwhile, Brad Hand will begin the season in the bullpen. Koehler will follow Jose Fernandez, Nathan Eovaldi, Henderson Alvarez, Jacob Turner in the rotation and make his season debut April 4 against the Padres. We're not expecting much in the way of fantasy value.
Mar 27 - 4:12 PM

Tom Koehler yielded two runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Nationals.

It was the first loss in four starts for Koehler, who has a 1.50 ERA in 18 innings. He hasn't officially been named the Marlins' fifth starter, but that figures to change in the near future.
Mar 24 - 4:30 PM

Tom Koehler allowed just one hit in four scoreless innings and struck out four against the Tigers on Sunday.

It doesn't look like Koehler intends to cede the fifth spot in the Marlins rotation to prospect Andrew Heaney without a fight. He's allowed one run in seven innings this spring.
Mar 9 - 4:09 PM

Tom Koehler yielded one run in two innings Tuesday against the Twins.

Koehler was the favorite to be the Marlins' fifth starter all winter long, but with the spring came optimism that top prospect Andrew Heaney might steal the spot away from him. Kevin Slowey and Brad Hand are in the mix as well. Koehler is the safe choice of the bunch, but he's also probably the least interesting for fantasy purposes.
Mar 4 - 4:56 PM

Tom Koehler pitched decently in Friday's victory over the Tigers, allowing two runs on five hits over his 5 1/3 innings of work.

Koehler punched out three while issuing three free passes on the evening. The 27-year-old right-hander has had mixed results in his first season in the Marlins rotation, registering a 5-10 record, 4.41 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 92/54 K/BB ratio over 143 innings. He will likely head into spring training with a chance to compete for a spot in the 2014 rotation, but remains a sketchy play at best in most mixed leagues, as he’s very hittable and doesn’t generate many strikeouts.

Tom Koehler enjoyed his finest hour as a major leaguer on Sunday, working eight shutout innings against the Mets.

He struck out five, scattered just three hits and didn't walk a batter. Koehler entered the afternoon with a 4.86 career ERA in 137 innings. Unfortunately for him, the Marlins failed to score in regulation and Koehler was stuck with a no-decision. The right-hander isn't a recommended fantasy option in Washington next weekend.

Tom Koehler allowed four runs over five innings in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

Koehler allowed eight hits and three walks in the outing, striking out just two. The 27-year-old hasn't won since August 1 and is now 3-10 on the season. His next start will come against the Mets this weekend.
Tue, Sep 10, 2013 11:27:00 PM

Tom Koehler allowed four hits and three walks but limited the Cubs to just two runs in a no-decision on Tuesday.

Koehler was in line for his fourth win if he could have just gotten through five innings, but the right-hander gave up a solo home run and walked the bases loaded before Marlins manager Mike Redmond decided he'd seen enough. Walks have been an issue this season for Koehler, as he's now issued 47 free passes in 118 2/3 innings. He's got his work cut out for him Monday when he takes on the Braves.
Wed, Sep 4, 2013 12:33:00 AM

Tom Koehler tossed seven innings of one-run ball in a tough-luck no-decision against the Rockies on Friday.

Koehler left with the lead, but Chad Qualls coughed it up in the eighth. The southpaw scattered six hits and walked two batters while striking out five. With a 4.45 ERA and 77/40 K/BB ratio over 109 1/3 innings this season, Koehler has done a respectable job when called upon by Miami, but he's not much of a fantasy option.
Fri, Aug 23, 2013 10:24:00 PM

Tom Koehler surrendered three runs on four hits in five innings in a loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.

On the plus side, Koehler struck out eight and walked only one. The 27-year-old has a 4.40 ERA and 67/32 K/BB ratio in 92 innings this season. He has very little fantasy value.
Wed, Aug 7, 2013 11:11:00 PM

Tom Koehler tossed six scoreless frames in a 3-0 win over the Mets on Thursday.

Koehler gave up five hits and five walks, so he was far from dominant, but he managed to keep the Mets off the board. The 27-year-old right-hander now has a 4.34 ERA and 59/31 K/BB ratio in 87 innings over 19 games (13 starts) this season. With the pathetic Marlins' offense behind him, he has very little fantasy value.

Tom Koehler was shelled for five earned runs in five innings Saturday as the Marlins fell to Pittsburgh.

Koehler looked like a batting practice pitcher against the Bucs, yielding nine total hits before exiting. He's now 2-6 with a 4.67 ERA in 81 innings this season.
