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.

Tom Koehler was roughed up for eight runs over just three innings Tuesday in a loss to the Astros.

The Astros got to Koehler early with three runs on five singles in the first. They then made him pay for three straight two-out walks in the second, as Brian McCann cleared the bases with a double. Koehler walked four on the night in the ugly outing. He was optioned to the minors after the game.
May 16 - 10:25 PM

Tom Koehler was charged with four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings and took a no-decision against the Cardinals on Wednesday.

He loaded the bases with two walks and a hit batsman in the third inning, then surrendered back-to-back singles to let in three runs. He allowed five hits and two walks while striking out five batters in the poor outing. His ERA climbs to 5.60 with 28 strikeouts in 35 1/3 innings spread over seven starts. He will be a sketchy play next week even though he lines up for two starts (Astros and Dodgers).
May 10 - 11:57 PM

Tom Koehler yielded three runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Friday.

Koehler allowed a solo homer to T.J. Rivera in the first and a two-run shot to Curtis Granderson in the fourth, but he kept the Mets off the board otherwise. He left in position for the victory, but the Mets battled back against the Marlins’ bullpen. Koehler has now allowed nine home runs in just 30 innings so far this season. That’s a scary pace. He’ll bring a 5.40 ERA into a start against the Cardinals at home next week.
May 5 - 10:43 PM

Tom Koehler notched a quality start in Sunday's win over the Padres, surrendering three runs on six hits over six innings.

Koehler struck out seven and walked two on the afternoon. He allowed an RBI single to Yangervis Solarte in the first inning and a two-run homer to Hunter Renfrow in the fourth, finishing out having thrown 87 pitches (55 strikes). Through four starts, the veteran right-hander holds an unappealing 5.14 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. He will face off with the Pirates in a home start next time out as he attempts to drop that earned run mark under 5.00.
Apr 23 - 8:41 PM

Tom Koehler is scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the Padres.

Koehler has managed a 3-0 record with a 2.14 ERA in four career appearances (three starts) against San Diego. Despite the solid numbers he hasn't done much to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest of NL-only formats.
Apr 23 - 2:05 AM

Tom Koehler surrendered five runs in four innings Monday in a loss to the Mariners.

Koehler's already given up five homers in 15 innings, so it seems fortunate that his ERA is a mere 5.40. He has a nice matchup coming up against the Padres in San Diego this weekend, but he's a weak bet going forward.
Apr 18 - 1:31 AM

Tom Koehler turned in a quality start but did not earn a decision after giving up three runs in six innings against the Braves on Wednesday.

He suffered from gopheritis, giving up a two-run homer to Ender Inciarte in the third inning and a solo shot to Freddie Freeman in the fourth. He allowed five hits and two walks while generating only one strikeout. He was lifted after only 71 pitches, partially because he had to work around a rain delay in the fourth inning. Koehler lines up for two starts next week, both are on the road -- first in Seattle and then in San Diego.
Apr 12 - 11:42 PM

Tom Koehler held the Nationals to one run over five innings Thursday but took a no-decision in the low-scoring affair.

Koehler gave up four hits and walked three, but he kept the Nats offense mostly in check while needing just 71 pitches to get through five. Unfortunately for the right-hander, a rain delay was enough to get him out of the game prematurely, and a stagnant Marlins offense couldn't back him with any support. Still, it was a good first showing for Koehler, who went 9-13 with a 4.33 ERA in 33 starts last season.
Apr 6 - 10:20 PM

Tom Koehler yielded four runs -- all of them unearned -- in 5 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to a Mets split-squad.

Like Adam Conley and Dan Straily, Koehler is struggling this spring. Still, it doesn't seem to have place his rotation spot in any doubt. Koehler has allowed 13 runs -- eight earned -- in 14 1/3 innings. He's struck out 15, but he's also walked nine in 13 1/3 innings. He had the third-most walks in the NL in both 2015 and 2016.
Mar 27 - 5:10 PM

Tom Koehler allowed three runs -- two earned -- and five hits in 2 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Cardinals.

He struck out one and walked two. Koehler, who finished 9-13 with a 4.33 ERA last year, doesn't have to worry about his rotation spot this spring. He's never been someone who has offered much in the way of fantasy value.
Mar 7 - 4:19 PM

Marlins and RHP Tom Koehler avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.75 million contract.

It was the righty's second year of arbitration eligibility. Koehler holds a career 4.16 ERA over parts of five seasons with the Marlins and will be part of their rotation again in 2017.
Jan 13 - 2:02 PM

Tom Koehler ended his season with a thud, coughing up five runs in three innings on Sunday but escaped with a no-decision as the Marlins lost to the Nationals.

He couldn't throw strikes. He walked five batters and took 78 pitches to get through three-plus innings. His nemesis was opposing starter Max Scherzer, who hit a pair of two-RBI singles off him. Koehler finishes the season with a 9-13 record and a 4.33 ERA in 33 starts. Walks have been a problem all year. He fanned 147 batters and walked 83 in 176 2/3 innings. Only three pitchers walked more batters than Koehler did this year.

Tom Koehler lasted just 3 2/3 innings Tuesday, allowing four runs on six hits in a loss.

Koehler issued four free passes and served up two homers -- two-run shots by Jay Bruce and Yoenis Cespedes -- in the abbreviated start. If Tuesday's start was his last in 2016, the 30-year-old finishes with a 4.15 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 32 starts. Statistically, the season was Koehler's worst since 2013, but he's now made at least 31 starts with an ERA between 3.81 and 4.15 and between 9 and 11 wins in each of his last three seasons.
