Tom Koehler notched a quality start in Sunday's win over the Padres, surrendering three runs on six hits over six innings.
Koehler struck out seven and walked two on the afternoon. He allowed an RBI single to Yangervis Solarte in the first inning and a two-run homer to Hunter Renfrow in the fourth, finishing out having thrown 87 pitches (55 strikes). Through four starts, the veteran right-hander holds an unappealing 5.14 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. He will face off with the Pirates in a home start next time out as he attempts to drop that earned run mark under 5.00. Apr 23 - 8:41 PM

Tom Koehler is scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the Padres.

Koehler has managed a 3-0 record with a 2.14 ERA in four career appearances (three starts) against San Diego. Despite the solid numbers he hasn't done much to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest of NL-only formats.

Tom Koehler surrendered five runs in four innings Monday in a loss to the Mariners.

Koehler's already given up five homers in 15 innings, so it seems fortunate that his ERA is a mere 5.40. He has a nice matchup coming up against the Padres in San Diego this weekend, but he's a weak bet going forward.
Apr 18 - 1:31 AM

Tom Koehler turned in a quality start but did not earn a decision after giving up three runs in six innings against the Braves on Wednesday.

He suffered from gopheritis, giving up a two-run homer to Ender Inciarte in the third inning and a solo shot to Freddie Freeman in the fourth. He allowed five hits and two walks while generating only one strikeout. He was lifted after only 71 pitches, partially because he had to work around a rain delay in the fourth inning. Koehler lines up for two starts next week, both are on the road -- first in Seattle and then in San Diego.
Apr 12 - 11:42 PM

Tom Koehler held the Nationals to one run over five innings Thursday but took a no-decision in the low-scoring affair.

Koehler gave up four hits and walked three, but he kept the Nats offense mostly in check while needing just 71 pitches to get through five. Unfortunately for the right-hander, a rain delay was enough to get him out of the game prematurely, and a stagnant Marlins offense couldn't back him with any support. Still, it was a good first showing for Koehler, who went 9-13 with a 4.33 ERA in 33 starts last season.
Apr 6 - 10:20 PM

Tom Koehler yielded four runs -- all of them unearned -- in 5 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to a Mets split-squad.

Like Adam Conley and Dan Straily, Koehler is struggling this spring. Still, it doesn't seem to have place his rotation spot in any doubt. Koehler has allowed 13 runs -- eight earned -- in 14 1/3 innings. He's struck out 15, but he's also walked nine in 13 1/3 innings. He had the third-most walks in the NL in both 2015 and 2016.
Mar 27 - 5:10 PM

Tom Koehler allowed three runs -- two earned -- and five hits in 2 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Cardinals.

He struck out one and walked two. Koehler, who finished 9-13 with a 4.33 ERA last year, doesn't have to worry about his rotation spot this spring. He's never been someone who has offered much in the way of fantasy value.
Mar 7 - 4:19 PM

Marlins and RHP Tom Koehler avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.75 million contract.

It was the righty's second year of arbitration eligibility. Koehler holds a career 4.16 ERA over parts of five seasons with the Marlins and will be part of their rotation again in 2017.
Jan 13 - 2:02 PM

Tom Koehler ended his season with a thud, coughing up five runs in three innings on Sunday but escaped with a no-decision as the Marlins lost to the Nationals.

He couldn't throw strikes. He walked five batters and took 78 pitches to get through three-plus innings. His nemesis was opposing starter Max Scherzer, who hit a pair of two-RBI singles off him. Koehler finishes the season with a 9-13 record and a 4.33 ERA in 33 starts. Walks have been a problem all year. He fanned 147 batters and walked 83 in 176 2/3 innings. Only three pitchers walked more batters than Koehler did this year.

Tom Koehler lasted just 3 2/3 innings Tuesday, allowing four runs on six hits in a loss.

Koehler issued four free passes and served up two homers -- two-run shots by Jay Bruce and Yoenis Cespedes -- in the abbreviated start. If Tuesday's start was his last in 2016, the 30-year-old finishes with a 4.15 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 32 starts. Statistically, the season was Koehler's worst since 2013, but he's now made at least 31 starts with an ERA between 3.81 and 4.15 and between 9 and 11 wins in each of his last three seasons.

Tom Koehler lasted only four innings and gave up four runs -- three earned -- in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

The unearned run was his own fault as he made the first of two Marlins errors that allowed the first run to score in the third inning. He got nailed for a three-run jack off the bat of Ryan Zimmerman in his fourth and final frame. Koehler's 9-12 record and 4.02 ERA are very close to what he has done for three years in a row now. He is a middle-of-the-road major league pitcher worthy of filling out the back side of fantasy rotations.

Tom Koehler yielded two runs over five-plus innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday.

Koehler blanked the Phillies until Ryan Howard took him deep to begin the bottom of the sixth inning. He was pulled after Cameron Rupp followed with a double, but Mike Dunn and Austin Brice permitted two more runs in the frame to put the Phillies ahead. Koehler struck out seven and walked three in the no-decision and now has a 3.96 ERA and 138/71 K/BB ratio over 166 innings. He gets the Nationals at home next week.

Tom Koehler struggled with the long ball on Saturday, serving up three homers over his five-plus innings of work in a loss to the Dodgers.

Koehler allowed four runs on six hits and a pair of walks in his five-plus frames, striking out four along the way. He carried a shutout into the fifth inning where Joc Pederson hit a solo homer. Koehler returned for the sixth, where he allowed a two-run homer to Kyle Seager and a solo shot to Justin Turner before he was lifted. While he has shown flashes, the right-hander will carry a disappointing 3.97 ERA and 1.42 WHIP into Friday's start against the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Tom Koehler fired six shutout innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Sunday.

Koehler struck out six on the day while issuing a pair of free passes. He departed with a 2-0 lead and in line for his 10th victory, but the Marlins bullpen was unable to oblige. He'll carry a 3.87 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Dodgers.
Sun, Sep 4, 2016 08:26:00 PM

Tom Koehler allowed five runs on 10 hits over five innings in a loss to the Mets on Tuesday.

The start was the worst for Koehler in two months -- the last time he allowed five runs was on June 29, and his 10 hits were a season high for the right-hander. He'd been especially good over his previous seven starts, rattling off seven consecutive quality starts before Tuesday. The loss dropped him to 9-10 with a 4.02 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. A tough interleague test against the Indians is on tap for Koehler on Sunday.
