Tom Koehler's disastrous fourth inning, in which he allowed seven runs, led to a loss in Sunday's start facing the Mets.

Koehler had gone nine up, nine down heading into the fourth. But the Mets loaded the bases with no outs on two singles and a walk before Koehler was able to record the first out of the inning. From there, the Mets singled twice, drew a bases-loaded walk, and doubled to rack up six runs against Koehler, who then departed. The Mets tacked on one more with a single off of reliever Sam Dyson. Koehler, over his 3 1/3 innings, yielded five hits and a pair of walks while striking out one. That fourth inning aside, Koehler has otherwise been reliable this season but his inability to miss bats severely hampers his fantasy value. He takes on the Nationals at home next.
Apr 19 - 4:14 PM

Tom Koehler gave up just two solo home runs over 5 1/3 innings Tuesday, earning the win over the Braves.

Koehler served up back-to-back home runs to Freddie Freeman and A.J. Pierzynski in the fourth inning, but he was otherwise able to keep the Braves off the board. He got into trouble again in the sixth inning, loading the bases with one out, but A.J. Ramos was able to come on and escape the jam. Koehler gave up six hits and two walks while striking out three in the win. Koehler will take a 1-1 record, 3.18 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into Sunday's start at the Mets.
Apr 14 - 10:12 PM

Tom Koehler pitched six-plus innings of two-run ball Wednesday in a loss to the Braves.

Koehler had a shutout going until Freddie Freeman singled and A.J. Pierzynski homered to start the seventh. He was removed immediately afterwards, and with no run support forthcoming, it was enough to send him to a loss. Koehler will get the Braves again next time out, and he'll again be a nice enough play in NL-only leagues.
Apr 8 - 10:08 PM

Tom Koehler was roughed up by the Nationals on Sunday, surrendering six runs and 10 hits in four innings.

The wind was a factor today, with Koehler giving up three of the game's seven homers. He hadn't previously allowed a single homer in 14 innings. Though Koehler's spring ERA is up to 7.00, he shouldn't be in any danger of being bumped from the rotation. Depending on whether the Marlins stay healthy, that could change once Josh Fernandez is ready to return from Tommy John.
Mar 29 - 5:05 PM

Tom Koehler yielded four runs in seven innings and struck out seven Thursday in a win over the Phillies.

The win was Koehler's first in seven starts dating back to Aug. 17. It came even though he gave up four runs for the first time since Aug. 6. Overall, Koehler was 10-10 with a 3.81 ERA in 191 1/3 innings this year. There isn't really any breakthrough potential here, but the Marlins have to be happy with his development; very little was expected of him as an 18th-round pick out of Stony Brook in 2008. He'll be back in next year's rotation.

Tom Koehler yielded three runs in five innings Friday in a loss to the Nationals.

Tom Koehler allowed three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Sunday.

The Phillies largely did their damage with well-timed hits, as Koehler allowed only one extra-base hit, a double, among his seven hits given up. Koehler also walked one while striking out two. Even without factoring in the decision, the start marked the seventh straight in which Koehler has allowed three or fewer runs. The right-hander is 9-9 with a 3.71 ERA heading into the home stretch. He's got a divisional date with the Nationals up next on Friday.

Tom Koehler delivered a quality start in a no-decision against the Braves on Friday, surrendering just two runs on four hits over his six innings of work.

Koehler walked three and whiffed six on the night. All of the damage against him came on one swing of the bat by Justin Upton in the sixth inning. He has been a pleasant surprise for the Marlins this season, registering a 3.79 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 126/58 K/Bb ratio over his 161 1/3 innings. He’ll head in search of his 10th victory when he does battle against the Mets on Wednesday in Miami.

On this particular night, Koehler struggled with his control, walking four batters in his outing while also allowing five hits. He punched out four as well. The 28-year-old has otherwise been solid for the Marlins, sporting a 3.80 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 104/51 K/BB ratio. The right-hander will kick off a nine-game homestand when he takes on the Cardinals on Monday.

Tom Koehler performed well in Thursday's start against the Reds, but took a loss after allowing two unearned runs in seven innings.

Both runs, as it happens, crossed the plate in the top of the seventh following a Jordany Valdespin error to begin the inning. Koehler to that point had shut the Reds out, even outdueling Johnny Cueto. Overall, the right-hander allowed five hits, walked none, and struck out three. He owns a 3.70 ERA with a 1.22 WHIP and a 100/47 K/BB ratio. Koehler will try to keep the strong pitching going when he takes on the Pirates in Pittsburgh next week.

Tom Koehler was blitzed for seven runs on eight hits over just three innings in a loss against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Koehler was placed on the paternity leave list after he tossed six shutout innings against the Phillies on Wednesday and then activated over the weekend without missing an outing. The right-hander didn't bring his good stuff to the park, allowing more than two earned runs for the first time since June 16. Now 6-7 with a 3.98 ERA, Koehler takes on the Mets in New York on Wednesday.
Tue, Jul 8, 2014 12:41:00 AM
