Tom Koehler was all over the map in Sunday's win over the Rockies, walking six over six shutout innings.

Koehler struck out six and allowed just two hits. This would have been a fantastic start had it not been for the six walks issued. The 29-year-old right-hander holds a 3.92 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 65/44 K/BB ratio through 78 innings. A home start against the Cubs shows next on his schedule.

Tom Koehler pitched well in Tuesday's win over the Padres, striking out eight and allowing two runs over six innings.

Koehler scattered six hits and walked just one on the evening. Alexi Amarista hit an RBI single in the second inning and another RBI single in the fourth to account for the scoring on Koehler's watch. He will carry a 4.25 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 59/38 K/BB ratio (72 innings) into a home start against the Rockies next time out.

Tom Koehler pitched well in Thursday's victory over the Twins, allowing two runs on four hits over six solid innings.

Koehler fanned six on the night and issued only one walk. He kept the Twins offense at bay until his final inning of work when Robbie Grossman came through with a two-run double to tie the score. More of a dependable innings-eater type than a useful fantasy commodity, Koehler draws a dream matchup his next time out, against the Padres in San Diego on Tuesday. He's certainly worth using in all formats for that start.

Tom Koehler was charged with three runs over six-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Mets.

Koehler was pulled after issuing his first walk of the game to begin the top of the seventh inning. Mike Dunn then promptly gave up a go-ahead two-run homer to James Loney. Koehler struck out six in the no-decision. The improved control was nice to see. He had walked five batters in four straight starts coming into Friday’s outing. He’ll bring a 4.50 ERA into a start against the Twins next week.
Jun 3 - 10:15 PM

Tom Koehler hurled seven-plus innings of two-run ball as the Marlins bested the Braves in Atlanta on Sunday.

The right-hander scattered just three hits while issuing five walks and striking out two. All of the damage against him came in the eighth inning. This was one of the best outings of the season for Koehler who sports a 4.50 ERA and 1.65 WHIP on the year. He'll look to carry over the momentum from this fine effort when he does battle against the Mets at home on Friday.
May 29 - 9:44 PM

Tom Koehler allowed three runs over five innings in Tuesday’s loss to the Rays.

Jake Odorizzi delivered an RBI single in the second inning before Hank Conger brought home two runs with a single in the fourth. Koehler allowed six hits and walked five bats, so he was fortunate to only give up three runs. The 29-year-old owns a shaky 4.79 ERA and 37/30 K/BB ratio over 47 innings this season and should be ignored in most fantasy leagues.
May 24 - 3:39 PM

Tom Koehler surrendered three runs -- two earned -- over seven innings Wednesday in a loss to the Phillies.

It came down to one rough frame for Koehler -- the bottom of the third, when the Phillies poured in three runs after David Lough reached base on an inning-opening error by Marlins first baseman Justin Bour. Koehler didn't allow a run in any other inning and lowered his season ERA from 5.14 to 4.71 in the afternoon tilt. He'll get the Rays at home next.
May 18 - 3:42 PM

Tom Koehler was handed a no-decision after giving up one run over 5 2/3 innings Friday against the Nationals.

Koehler was fortunate things weren’t worse, as he allowed six hits and walked five batters. He was pulled after giving up a two-out single to Jose Lobaton in the sixth and Bryan Morris promptly gave up a game-tying two-run homer to Stephen Drew. Koehler struck out four in the no-decision and now has an ugly 5.14 ERA and 27/20 K/BB ratio in 35 innings through seven starts. He’ll get the Phillies on the road next week.
May 13 - 11:29 PM

Tom Koehler took a no-decision in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Phillies despite surrendering just one run on two hits over seven innings.

Koehler entered Saturday's game holding a bloated 7.25 ERA, much of that as a result of an eight-run disaster in his last start. He had no such issues on Saturday. The only run to score on his watch came when Ryan Howard hit a fourth-inning sacrifice fly. Koehler finished his evening having struck out eight and walked two. Alas, the Marlin bullpen would blow a 3-1 lead. Nice work despite the lack of a win, enough to drop his ERA to 5.38. It will take another few decent starts before it recovers from the aforementioned eight-run debacle. A road outing against the Nationals next time out probably won't do much to help.
May 7 - 10:42 PM

Tom Koehler was rocked hard in Sunday's loss to the Brewers, yielding eight runs on eight hits over 2 1/3 innings.

The start was exactly as bad as the outward numbers. After coughing up a pair of runs in the first inning, Koehler would go on to allow an additional six in the third. He did not strike out a batter during his short time on the mound. The horrific results took a middling 4.50 ERA and turned it into a wince-inducing 7.25 mark. That will come down over time, but fantasy owners have no cause to toss him into their rotations -- even in deeper NL-only leagues.
May 1 - 6:14 PM

Tom Koehler survived long enough to pick up the win in Tuesday's victory over the Dodgers, surrendering three runs (two earned) on three hits over five innings.

Koehler struck out just three and walked four in what was about as average a start as is humanly possible. He surrendered two runs in the first inning and another in the fourth to account for the scoring on his line. The 29-year-old right-hander can be safely avoided in all formats. He now owns a 4.50 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 15/11 K/BB ratio through his first four starts (20 innings). A road outing against the Brewers shows next on his schedule.
Apr 27 - 1:34 AM

Tom Koehler won for the first time this season after pitching five innings of one-run ball Thursday against the Nationals.

The bullpen finished up a two-hitter in the 5-1 victory. Koehler gave up both hits, including Bryce Harper's homer. He's 1-2 with a 4.80 ERA. While this makes his rotation spot a bit more secure, we don't recommend him in NL-only leagues.
Apr 21 - 4:30 PM

Tom Koehler allowed nine hits and six runs -- five earned -- over 3 2/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Koehler just didn't have it, as four of the Braves' nine hits went for extra bases and he struck out just one while walking two. He's turned in one quality and one not-so-quality start thus far, leaving him with a 6.30 ERA and 2.30 WHIP. It doesn't get any easier his next time out -- as though it could get a whole lot easier than the lowly Braves anyway -- when Koehler takes on the Nationals on Thursday.
Apr 16 - 10:28 PM

Tom Koehler yielded two runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings during Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

It was a very, very uneven outing for Koehler. In addition to the eight hits he coughed up, he also walked four batters. Despite that sometime-unpleasantness, he still managed to pitch into the seventh inning. Bryce Harper dinged him for an RBI double in the first inning. The Nats wouldn't reach Koehler again until the seventh. After he allowed a one-out single to Anthony Rendon in the frame, he was relieved of duty. Rendon would subsequently score to close the book on the 29-year-old's line. Outside of NL-only formats, it is safe to leave Koehler on the waiver wire. He faces the Braves in his next start.
