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.

Tom Koehler took his ninth loss after allowing four runs over six frames on Wednesday against the Pirates.

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.
Aug 6 - 10:16 PM

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.
Jul 31 - 10:08 PM

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.
Jul 8 - 12:41 AM

Marlins activated RHP Tom Koehler from the paternity leave list.

Koehler is back in time to make his next scheduled start. He threw six scoreless innings against the Phillies in his last outing Wednesday and has a 3.48 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 82 strikeouts in 103 1/3 innings this year.
Jul 5 - 7:55 PM

Marlins placed RHP Tom Koehler on the paternity leave list.

Koehler tossed six scoreless innings against the Phillies on Wednesday night and will be back for his next scheduled start. The 28-year-old owns a cool 3.48 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 82 strikeouts in 103 1/3 frames this season.
Jul 2 - 10:49 PM

Tom Koehler got a no-decision, allowing two runs over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Phillies.

Koehler continues to pitch well, even outdueling Cole Hamels on the evening. The right-hander allowed seven hits, issued no walks, and struck out six. Now with a 3.70 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP, and a 75/38 K/BB ratio, Koehler will match up against the Phillies again next week, but at home.
Jun 27 - 12:03 AM

Tom Koehler surrendered five runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Koehler had allowed just one run heading into the sixth inning but he imploded there, serving up four more runs while recording just one out before exiting. Koehler allowed five hits and three walks on the evening, striking out seven. His ERA has climbed in each of his last four starts, rising from 2.25 on May 17 to 3.68 after Tuesday's start. He's best left for deeper mixed leagues and NL-only leagues at this point. Koehler draws the Cubs on Monday.
Jun 10 - 11:53 PM

Tom Koehler gave up three runs (two earned) over seven innings in Friday's loss to the Braves.

Koehler had the lead until the Braves scored two runs off of him in his final inning of work. He allowed seven hits and four walks while striking out five and now owns a surprising 3.04 ERA through 11 starts this season. He'll take on the Rays on the road in his next start.
May 30 - 10:21 PM

Tom Koehler was obliterated in Friday’s loss to the Brewers, surrendering seven runs on nine hits in his five innings of work.

Koehler fanned three without walking a batter in the forgettable outing. Mark Reynolds was responsible for the brunt of the damage against him with a pair of two-run homers. With the poor start, Koehler sees his ERA rise from 2.25 to 3.10. He’ll look to get back on track when he does battle against the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
May 23 - 10:32 PM

Tom Koehler pitched seven scoreless innings and struck out seven in a win over the Giants on Saturday.

That's four times this year Koehler has pitched seven or more scoreless innings, which is tied with Adam Wainwright for the most in the majors. Everyone saw that coming, right? Koehler has done it with a pretty unremarkable 37/24 K/BB ratio in 56 innings. He could remain a useful starter for the Marlins all year long, but he's not this good.
May 18 - 12:14 AM

Tom Koehler was chased after just 3 2/3 innings Monday against the Dodgers, coughing up four runs on six hits and five walks.

The Koehler Bandwagon, which had taken on many passengers in recent weeks, careened recklessly around sharp turns this evening, no doubt shaking several riders. Through his first seven starts, Koehler owned a 1.99 ERA and failed to complete six innings just once. He'll try to win back some coverts in San Francisco on Saturday.
May 13 - 1:59 AM

Tom Koehler allowed just two hits and one walk over eight shutout innings in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Mets.

Koehler struck out five in the outing. He was only at 95 pitches but was removed for a pinch-hitter in the eighth, which meant he didn't get a win when the Marlins hit a walk-off sac fly in the ninth. Still, it continues an impressive start to the season for Koehler, who now boasts a 1.99 ERA through his first seven outings. He'll take on the Dodgers next week.
May 7 - 3:48 PM

Tom Koehler was terrific in Friday’s victory over the Dodgers, hurling seven shutout innings while scattering just three hits.

Koehler struck out four in the impressive outing while walking two. He’s been a bright spot in the Marlins rotation in the first month of the season, posting a 2.41 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 24/16 K/BB ratio over 37 1/3 innings. He’ll look to keep things rolling when he takes on the Mets at home on Wednesday.
May 2 - 10:26 PM

Tom Koehler fanned eight while allowing two runs in 6 1/3 innings Monday against the Braves.

Koehler still hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his four starts this season. The difference tonight was the strikeouts; he had almost as many as the 10 from his previous three starts combined. He shouldn't be viewed as viable long-term option in shallow mixed leagues, but it's worth riding him a little longer.
