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.

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.
May 12 - 1:25 AM

Tom Koehler was touched up for five runs across six innings in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

Bryce Harper was Koehler's nemesis, as the outfielder took him deep three times on the day. Koehler allowed seven hits overall, struck out five and walked one. The right-hander has been quite inconsistent this season and now sports a 5.18 ERA. He'll try to get back on track next week versus the Dodgers.
May 6 - 4:00 PM

Tom Koehler racked up six strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday.

Koehler surrendered three runs on four hits over his five innings of work, with all of the damage coming on a three-run blast off the bat of Chase Utley in the fourth inning. The 28-year-old will look to get back in the win column on Wednesday when he takes on the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
May 1 - 11:54 PM

Tom Koehler delivered 7 1/3 innings of shutout ball in Saturday's defeat of the Nationals.

Koehler was fantastic, scattering six hits and a walk while striking out four. It was a nice bounceback from outing last Sunday, when he gave up seven runs in a loss to the Mets. Koehler will take a 2-2 record, 4.50 ERA, and 1.36 WHIP into his next start at home versus the Phillies.
Apr 25 - 6:53 PM

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.

Koehler gave up six hits (including a two-run homer to Adam LaRoche) and four walks to go along with five strikeouts. He remains winless since August 17. The 28-year-old will wrap up his season with a start against the Phillies next week.
Fri, Sep 19, 2014 11:14:00 PM

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.
