Tom Koehler allowed three runs over five innings in Tuesday’s loss to the Rays.
Jake Odorizzi delivered an RBI single in the second inning before Hank Conger brought home two runs with a single in the fourth. Koehler allowed six hits and walked five bats, so he was fortunate to only give up three runs. The 29-year-old owns a shaky 4.79 ERA and 37/30 K/BB ratio over 47 innings this season and should be ignored in most fantasy leagues. May 24 - 3:39 PM

Tom Koehler surrendered three runs -- two earned -- over seven innings Wednesday in a loss to the Phillies.

It came down to one rough frame for Koehler -- the bottom of the third, when the Phillies poured in three runs after David Lough reached base on an inning-opening error by Marlins first baseman Justin Bour. Koehler didn't allow a run in any other inning and lowered his season ERA from 5.14 to 4.71 in the afternoon tilt. He'll get the Rays at home next.

Tom Koehler was handed a no-decision after giving up one run over 5 2/3 innings Friday against the Nationals.

Koehler was fortunate things weren’t worse, as he allowed six hits and walked five batters. He was pulled after giving up a two-out single to Jose Lobaton in the sixth and Bryan Morris promptly gave up a game-tying two-run homer to Stephen Drew. Koehler struck out four in the no-decision and now has an ugly 5.14 ERA and 27/20 K/BB ratio in 35 innings through seven starts. He’ll get the Phillies on the road next week.

Tom Koehler took a no-decision in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Phillies despite surrendering just one run on two hits over seven innings.

Koehler entered Saturday's game holding a bloated 7.25 ERA, much of that as a result of an eight-run disaster in his last start. He had no such issues on Saturday. The only run to score on his watch came when Ryan Howard hit a fourth-inning sacrifice fly. Koehler finished his evening having struck out eight and walked two. Alas, the Marlin bullpen would blow a 3-1 lead. Nice work despite the lack of a win, enough to drop his ERA to 5.38. It will take another few decent starts before it recovers from the aforementioned eight-run debacle. A road outing against the Nationals next time out probably won't do much to help.
May 7 - 10:42 PM

Tom Koehler was rocked hard in Sunday's loss to the Brewers, yielding eight runs on eight hits over 2 1/3 innings.

The start was exactly as bad as the outward numbers. After coughing up a pair of runs in the first inning, Koehler would go on to allow an additional six in the third. He did not strike out a batter during his short time on the mound. The horrific results took a middling 4.50 ERA and turned it into a wince-inducing 7.25 mark. That will come down over time, but fantasy owners have no cause to toss him into their rotations -- even in deeper NL-only leagues.
May 1 - 6:14 PM

Tom Koehler survived long enough to pick up the win in Tuesday's victory over the Dodgers, surrendering three runs (two earned) on three hits over five innings.

Koehler struck out just three and walked four in what was about as average a start as is humanly possible. He surrendered two runs in the first inning and another in the fourth to account for the scoring on his line. The 29-year-old right-hander can be safely avoided in all formats. He now owns a 4.50 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 15/11 K/BB ratio through his first four starts (20 innings). A road outing against the Brewers shows next on his schedule.
Apr 27 - 1:34 AM

Tom Koehler won for the first time this season after pitching five innings of one-run ball Thursday against the Nationals.

The bullpen finished up a two-hitter in the 5-1 victory. Koehler gave up both hits, including Bryce Harper's homer. He's 1-2 with a 4.80 ERA. While this makes his rotation spot a bit more secure, we don't recommend him in NL-only leagues.
Apr 21 - 4:30 PM

Tom Koehler allowed nine hits and six runs -- five earned -- over 3 2/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Koehler just didn't have it, as four of the Braves' nine hits went for extra bases and he struck out just one while walking two. He's turned in one quality and one not-so-quality start thus far, leaving him with a 6.30 ERA and 2.30 WHIP. It doesn't get any easier his next time out -- as though it could get a whole lot easier than the lowly Braves anyway -- when Koehler takes on the Nationals on Thursday.
Apr 16 - 10:28 PM

Tom Koehler yielded two runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings during Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

It was a very, very uneven outing for Koehler. In addition to the eight hits he coughed up, he also walked four batters. Despite that sometime-unpleasantness, he still managed to pitch into the seventh inning. Bryce Harper dinged him for an RBI double in the first inning. The Nats wouldn't reach Koehler again until the seventh. After he allowed a one-out single to Anthony Rendon in the frame, he was relieved of duty. Rendon would subsequently score to close the book on the 29-year-old's line. Outside of NL-only formats, it is safe to leave Koehler on the waiver wire. He faces the Braves in his next start.
Apr 10 - 4:40 PM

Tom Koehler will have his start pushed back to Sunday after Saturday's game was postponed.

The Marlins will simply shift everyone in the rotation back a day to account for the postponement. Koehler remains an unappealing fantasy option outside of NL-only formats.
Apr 9 - 12:45 PM

Tom Koehler held the Cardinals to one run in five innings in a no-decision Wednesday.

Koehler might have put his rotation spot in doubt with a poor finish this spring, but he was able to lower his ERA from 5.40 to 4.05 today. He showed signs of slipping last year, so he's not recommended in NL-only leagues this season.
Mar 23 - 5:13 PM

Tom Koehler allowed four runs -- three earned -- and five hits in 3 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Mets.

Koehler probably won't lose his rotation spot with a bad spring, but he could start the regular season on very thin ice. He had a 5.25 ERA over the final two months of last year, and he has a 5.40 ERA after three starts this spring.
Mar 13 - 5:45 PM

The Marlins expect Tom Koehler to be in their starting rotation.

Koehler insists he hasn't been given a role yet, but the reality is that he's already locked up the No. 4 spot in the rotation behind Jose Fernandez, newcomer Wei-Yin Chen, and Jarred Cosart. Koehler wasn't sharp in Thursday's loss to St. Louis (3 H, 3 R in 1 2/3 innings) but most guys aren't in their first game of the spring. Koehler owns a respectable 3.95 ERA over his last two seasons.

Marlins and RHP Tom Koehler avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.5 million contract.

It's a big raise in his first year of arbitration eligibility. Koehler held a 4.08 ERA across 187 1/3 frames in 2015 and will be a part of the rotation again in 2016.
Jan 15 - 2:22 PM

Tom Koehler gave up four runs in 6 2/3 innings, picking up his 11th win of the season on Sunday against the Braves.

The Marlins continually scored for Koehler as he never pitched with a deficit. He allowed nine hits and walked five while striking out only two, so one could argue he was very fortunate to allow only four runs. Koehler stands with a 4.00 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 132/73 K/BB ratio over 182 1/3 innings. He'll round out his season with a road start against the Phillies.
