Tom Koehler yielded one run in five innings and struck out seven Thursday in a loss to the Rays.
Koehler did his part in his Blue Jays debut, but the offense never got on the board today. Koehler likely will finish out the year in Toronto's rotation, but he's a bad risk in AL-only leagues. Aug 24 - 5:11 PM

Blue Jays recalled RHP Tom Koehler from Triple-A Buffalo.

Koehler, acquired from the Marlins last week, will make his Blue Jays debut in Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Rays. If he pitches well, the 31-year-old right-hander could stick around for a bit. But expectations should be rather low. He had a 7.92 ERA in 12 starts this season with Miami.
Aug 24 - 10:34 AM

Blue Jays acquired RHP Tom Koehler from the Marlins in exchange for RHP Osman Gutierrez.

Koehler has battled injuries throughout the year and has also spent time in Triple-A, but offers a wealth of experience (132 major league starts) and could benefit from a change of scenery. If nothing else, the 31-year-old gives Toronto some much-needed pitching depth. He didn't cost the Jays much, either. Gutierrez has posted a miserable 7.85 ERA over 18 starts for Low-A Lansing this year.
Aug 19 - 8:22 PM

Marlins optioned RHP Tom Koehler to Triple-A New Orleans.

Koehler has been a Marlins' rotation mainstay the last few years, but it speaks to how awful he's been in 2017 that he's now been optioned twice even while the club has a weak starting staff. The righty holds a 7.92 ERA over 12 starts in the majors this season.
Jul 24 - 4:22 PM

Tom Koehler surrendered six runs -- five earned -- over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Reds.

Koehler gave up nine hits, including three home runs, while falling to 1-5 on the year with a brutal 7.92 ERA. If he gets another turn in the Marlins' rotation, it'll be a rematch against the Reds on Friday night in Miami.
Jul 23 - 4:21 PM

Tom Koehler allowed four earned runs over five innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Phillies.

Philly pounced for all four of those runs in the top of the third, on two walks, two doubles, and a single. Miami wound up winning the game in extras, though that's not much of a consolation for Koehler and his 7.92 season ERA. He has surrendered 22 earned runs over his last 14 2/3 frames.
Jul 17 - 11:21 PM

Tom Koehler struck out seven while being charged with three runs over five innings in Thursday’s loss to the Cardinals.

Luke Voit was his nemesis, slugging a solo homer and a two-run double. This was a huge improvement for Koehler over the debacle in Milwaukee over the weekend, certainly. He should be in the rotation indefinitely with the Marlins in flux there.
Jul 6 - 5:17 PM

Tom Koehler was pummeled for seven runs -- three earned -- in 1 2/3 innings in a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

He made it through the first inning unscathed but was brutalized in the second. He faced 13 batters before being yanked off the mound mid-inning. He allowed two walks, five singles, a homer and threw a wild pitch in that one partial frame alone. Luckily for his fantasy owners an error by Dee Gordon caused four of the runs to be unearned. Koehler has been hopelessly ineffective this season as his 7.43 ERA in nine starts attests.
Jul 1 - 7:59 PM

Marlins recalled RHP Tom Koehler from Triple-A New Orleans.

He'll return to the Marlins' rotation on Saturday against the Brewers. The 31-year-old hurler registered a troublesome 7.04 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 31/19 K/BB ratio across 38 1/3 innings with the big league club earlier this season. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes, especially in this matchup and ballpark.
Jul 1 - 8:29 AM

Tom Koehler is expected to start for the Marlins on Saturday in Milwaukee.

Koehler was scheduled to start Thursday at Triple-A New Orleans but has been scratched from that outing. The 31-year-old right-hander has posted a rough 7.04 ERA in 38 1/3 innings (eight starts) this season at the major league level and makes for a poor fantasy streaming option.
Jun 29 - 12:59 PM

Marlins activated RHP Tom Koehler from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A New Orleans.

Koehler struck out eight batters over 3 2/3 innings of one-run ball Tuesday in a rehab appearance with Triple-A New Orleans, but the Marlins aren't ready to add him back to their major league rotation. The 30-year-old right-hander had a 7.04 ERA through eight starts this season with Miami.
Jun 14 - 10:02 AM

Tom Koehler (shoulder) allowed one earned run over 3 2/3 innings Tuesday in a rehab start with Triple-A New Orleans.

He struck out eight and walked one, throwing 79 pitches. Koehler now has two minor league rehab starts under his belt and could be an option for the Marlins' rotation within the next week, though there's no real rush here. The 30-year-old right-hander had an ugly 7.04 ERA through eight starts when he hit the disabled list May 18 with shoulder bursitis.
Jun 13 - 9:45 PM

Tom Koehler (shoulder) is set to begin a rehab assignment Thursday with High-A Jupiter.

He'll probably spend a couple weeks in the minors before the Marlins reevaluate his status. Koehler landed on the disabled list May 18 with right shoulder bursitis and a brutal 7.04 ERA through eight starts.
Jun 8 - 8:46 AM

Marlins placed RHP Tom Koehler on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder bursitis.

This undoes Koehler's demotion to Triple-A New Orleans, which had been announced on Wednesday. Koehler had his worst outing of the year Tuesday against Houston, letting up eight runs in only three innings. The Marlins haven't given a timetable for his return, but given how ineffective he's been this year, it could be a while.
May 18 - 5:47 PM

Marlins optioned RHP Tom Koehler to Triple-A New Orleans.

Koehler was hammered for eight runs over just three innings Tuesday in a loss to the Astros, ballooning his season ERA to 7.04. It's not clear what the Marlins' plan is for their vacant rotation spot. Jeff Locke (biceps) may soon be an option.
