|Tom Koehler looks sharp in no-decision |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/21/14) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler turned in a terrific outing but was unable to factor into the decision Monday against the Braves in Atlanta. The right-hander permitted one run on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over 6 2/3 innings of work.
Over his last two starts covering 13 innings, Koehler has allowed four earned runs. He owns a 3.85 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP over 20 starts (119 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at Houston.
|Tom Koehler earns quality start in no-decision vs. Mets |

(7/12/14) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler wasn't a factor in the decision Saturday, giving up three earned runs on two hits and four walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 5-4 loss to the Mets.
Koehler surrendered a pair of runs in the fifth inning but was able to leave the with a 4-2 lead and one out in the seventh. Unfortunately, the next pitcher immediately surrendered a two-run home run to tie the game and hang a third run on the starter. Koehler owns a 3.99 ERA and 88:45 K:BB ratio in 112 2/3 innings heading into the All-Star break.
|Tom Koehler gets obliterated by Diamondbacks |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler was obliterated by the Diamondbacks in Arizona, in his first start back from paternity leave, dropping to 6-7 on the year. The right-hander was shelled for seven runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two over three innings of a 9-1 defeat.
Koehler has permitted seven earned runs twice this season. He owns a 3.98 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP over 18 starts (106 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday against the Mets in New York.
|Tom Koehler reinstated from paternity leave |

(7/5/14) The Marlins reinstated pitcher Tom Koehler from the paternity leave list Saturday, as expected. He is in line to make his next start Monday in Arizona.
|This version of Tom Koehler looks more sustainable |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/3/14) When Tom Koehler compiled a 1.99 ERA in his first seven starts, Al Melchior and I both warned it was unsustainable, and for a while there, he was regressing quite nicely, compiling a 6.00 ERA over his next six starts.
But over his last four starts, he has a 2.88 ERA. And this time, I'm not so quick to dismiss it.
Why not? In 25 innings, he has 26 strikeouts to only four walks. For those who don't have a calculator handy, that's 9.4 strikeouts to 1.4 walks per nine innings. In his first 13 starts, he averaged 6.4 strikeouts to 4.0 walks per nine innings.
Strikeout rate and walk rate are the two most important stats for a pitcher because they measure what he directly influences. Once rawhide meets wood, his fate is in the hands of the defense and, to some degree, plain, dumb luck. A pitcher with a low strikeout rate or high walk rate has to compensate in some other way, and a pitcher with both is a disaster waiting to happen.
Now, it's a short stretch for Koehler -- too short to conclude he's a changed pitcher -- but that short stretch has his FIP (an estimate of what ERA should be emphasizing numbers like strikeout and walk rate) down to 3.95. That at least makes him streamable in standard mixed leagues.
|Tom Koehler was a winning machine in the minors. He first burst onto the scene after going 16-2 with a 2.61 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 28 starts at Double-A in 2010, and he followed that up by winning 12 games the next two seasons at Triple-A. Koehler has a .621 winning percentage (54-33) in his minor-league career. He finally got a brief taste of the majors in 2012 and got his first extended stay in 2013. He started out as a reliever before finally getting moved into the Marlins' rotation in mid-May. Although, Koehler didn't turn out to be the same winning machine he was in the minors, going just 5-10 with a 4.51 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 23 starts. He also struck out just 5.7 batters per nine innings as a starter, which was well below his minor-league rate (7.7 K/9). Nonetheless, the Marlins are giving Koehler another chance to hold down a rotation spot and a chance to improve in 2014. Though, he will have to hold off some rising arms in Brian Flynn, Justin Nicolino and Andrew Heaney this spring. Koehler is pretty much shaping up to be an NL-only Fantasy option on Draft Day.
