Tom Koehler allowed three runs -- two earned -- in six innings Saturday as the Marlins fell to the Phillies.

Koehler gave up two runs in the first inning and one more in the second. He settled in nicely from there, but the Miami offense could only offer one run of support. Koehler will carry a 3.38 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Padres.
Jul 18 - 9:49 PM

Tom Koehler allowed five runs (one earned) in six innings to take the loss on Wednesday versus the Red Sox.

The Red Sox exploded for a four-spot in the third inning, which was set up by Koehler's own throwing error. The inning was capped off by a two-run home run from David Ortiz. Overall, Koehler gave up five hits and a pair of walks while striking out two batters. Looking only at earned runs, Koehler has allowed two or fewer of them in nine of his last 11 starts. He has a 3.40 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 68/33 K/BB ratio in 98 innings. Koehler will pitch next in the second half in Philadelphia against the Phillies.
Jul 8 - 10:29 PM

Tom Koehler limited the Cubs to just one run across six innings in a 2-1 win Friday.

Koehler yielded just five hits -- four singles -- on the day, striking out four while issuing one free pass and hitting a batter. He was pulled after six even though he'd thrown just 91 pitches, but the move proved to be a wise one as the Marlins' bullpen took care of business. Koehler boasts a 2.88 ERA over eight starts since re-joining the rotation after a brief demotion to the bullpen. He'll get the Reds at home next week to close out his first half.
Jul 3 - 5:31 PM

Tom Koehler allowed two runs over seven innings in a win over the Dodgers on Saturday.

Koehler gave up just six hits without issuing a walk, besting Clayton Kershaw in the victory. He improved to 5-3 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.26 WHIP overall. Koehler will next square off with the Cubs in Chicago on Friday.
Jun 27 - 6:44 PM

Tom Koehler has been scratched from his scheduled start against the Reds on Saturday.

Koehler has been dealing with a neck and back issue in recent days, and has also been mentioned in trade rumblings Saturday morning. Justin Nicolino will be recalled from Triple-A to start in his place.
Jun 20 - 2:52 PM

Tom Koehler held the Yankees to one run over seven innings, earning his fifth win on Monday.

Koehler served up a solo home run to Mark Teixeira in the second inning, but that was it for runs. It was one of only three hits the Yankees scratched out. He also walked two and struck out five. Koehler has displayed strong pitching numerous times this season but has run into the occasional blow-up start, hampering his fantasy appeal. He'll bring a 3.76 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 57/30 K/BB ratio into a match-up this weekend against the Reds in Cincinnati.
Jun 15 - 10:39 PM

Tom Koehler was lit up for six runs over 6 2/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He struck out seven but served up three home runs, walked a pair and yielded eight hits in all. Koehler had been pitching pretty well after a brief move to the bullpen, but this was a tough matchup so he might deserve a pass. He'll try to bounce back next week against the Yankees.
Jun 10 - 3:49 PM

Tom Koehler surrendered one run over seven innings in defeating the Rockies at Coors Field on Friday.

The Marlins demoted Koehler to the pen last month, only to have to return him to the rotation a week later because of more injuries. He's 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA in four starts since, so it looks like he should be in the rotation for good this time. He's an option as a fifth or sixth starter in NL-only leagues.
Jun 6 - 1:30 AM

Tom Koehler struggled mightily in Saturday's win over the Mets, allowing five runs on seven hits over just 3 1/3 innings.

Koehler was given a 5-1 lead heading into the bottom of the fourth, but that didn't last. He served up a pair of singles to start the inning before things really unraveled. The key blow was a bases-clearing double by Ruben Tejada which tied the game at 5-5. Koehler found himself watching from the dugout shortly thereafter. He struck out one and walked four in the contest. The 28-year-old right-hander is currently pitching in the place of Jarred Cosart (vertigo) and holds a 4.01 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 39/25 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings. A road start against the Rockies is up next on the docket.
May 30 - 7:26 PM

Tom Koehler held the Orioles in check on Sunday, surrendering just one run on three hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Koehler's currently starting for Jarred Cosart (vertigo) and has pitched admirably in his extended spot duty. The only run he allowed against the Orioles came on a Jimmy Paredes sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. He also struck out three and walked four in the contest. Obviously, the walk number isn't good, but the 28-year-old right-hander managed to work his way around the free passes. He's scheduled to take a 3.44 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 38/21 K/BB ratio (in 55 innings) on the road against the Rockies next time out.
May 24 - 4:13 PM

Tom Koehler got a no-decision despite holding the Diamondbacks to two unearned runs in 6 2/3 innings of work in Tuesday's loss.

Both runs scored in the fourth inning. The first was a direct result of a Dee Gordon throwing error, and it was followed up by a Nick Ahmed infield single to plate the second run. Koehler, overall, allowed only five hits and issued two walks while striking out three. The right-hander has put together solid efforts in seven of nine starts thus far, owning a 3.70 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 35/17 K/BB ratio in 48 2/3 innings. Koehler was starting in place of Jarred Cosart (vertigo) and will continue to start until Cosart is better. He'll face the Orioles at home on Sunday.
May 19 - 10:21 PM

Tom Koehler will start on Tuesday against the Diamondbacks in place of Jarred Cosart (vertigo).

Koehler had been demoted to the bullpen following the return of Henderson Alvarez from the disabled list, but he now finds himself back in the rotation before he made a relief appearance. He holds a 4.62 ERA in 39 innings this season.
May 18 - 10:51 PM

Tom Koehler has been moved to the Marlins' bullpen.

The Marlins have decided to keep David Phelps in the rotation over Koehler following the return of Henderson Alvarez (shoulder). It's possible that Koehler could be needed for another start next week if Mat Latos (leg) isn't ready, but he's now pegged for a relief role over the long haul.
May 17 - 10:23 AM

Tom Koehler pitched well on Monday, holding the Dodgers to one run in six innings, but got a no-decision as the Marlins suffered a walk-off loss.

Koehler gave up the only run on a fielder's choice ground out hit by Justin Turner in the fourth inning. He worked around three hits and four walks while striking out five. Koehler has a 4.62 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 28/15 K/BB ratio in 39 innings. He doesn't have any fantasy value outside of NL-only leagues. He'll match up with the Braves at home in his next outing.
