Marlins' Tom Koehler allows four runs in six innings Tuesday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Marlins starting pitcher Tom Koehler, who is expected to open the season at the back of the rotation, went six innings during Tuesday's spring start against the Red Sox. He allowed four runs on four hits and two walks, while striking out five.
"I felt good today," he said, per The Miami Herald. "I pitched a little more game like with the sequences. Things felt good. Obviously just got myself in trouble throwing the ball away and some hard hit balls there. But overall, it's a step in a positive direction."
Koehler has struggled in his last two spring starts. After allowing one run in his first two outings, Koehler has allowed eight runs (seven) earned in his last two starts (10 innings). His ERA has gone from 2.25 to 5.14 over those two outings.
"The previous times out there I was just overcooking [the breaking ball] a little bit, trying to throw one for a strike in a two-strike situation, trying to make it too nasty," he said. "Your head wants to do one thing but physically you're not there yet. That's why they call it midseason form. So, I had to dial it back a little bit and focus on the execution of the pitch. The stuff is there right now. It's executing it. Overall, I think I did a much better job of it."
Marlins' rotation likely set, Henderson Alvarez likely to pitch opener
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Marlins manager Mike Redmond strongly indicated Monday that the team's rotation is set, and though he did not make a formal announcement, Henderson Alvarez is expected to pitch Opening Day, MLB.com reports.
Alvarez will likely be followed in order by Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Dan Haren and Tom Koehler.
"I'd say we're probably set with those five guys, but I would never say 100 percent that we're set, because you never know what will happen," Redmond said.
Alvarez, Cosart and Koehler have struggled this spring while Haren and Latos have pitched well, but Redmond indicated he's not overly concerned with spring numbers.
"Part of spring training is not only building up your arm strength and your pitches," Redmond said, "it's working on things you're trying to sharpen up, whether it be Cosart working on his changeup, or guys working on secondary pitches they're trying to lock in for the season. I don't get overly excited about spring training outings. I look more at how they're executing pitches, whether they are keeping the ball down. We've missed up in the zone probably more than we have all spring, the last couple of starts for guys."
Marlins' Koehler, Phelps continue bid for rotation spot Thursday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Marlins pitchers Tom Koehler and David Phelps, who are competing for the fifth spot in the team's rotation, pitched during Thursday's 6-3 loss against the Braves. Although, Phelps had a better day than Koehler, who took his first spring loss.
The right-hander allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks in four innings. He had no strikeouts. He now has a 4.50 ERA in three spring outings (two starts).
"My arm feels really good," Koehler said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I had good break on my offspeed pitches, but we've got to do a better job of executing. The stuff is there right now but the execution is not."
Phelps entered the game after Koehler left and allowed one unearned run in three relief innings. He allowed two hits and three walks, while striking out three. Phelps has allowed two runs (one earned) in four spring outings (11 innings, two starts). He has a 0.82 ERA and nine strikeouts.
Marlins' Koehler to work on breaking ball before next spring start
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/6/15) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler told reporters he was pretty impressed with his effort on Friday against the Red Sox. Koehler, who is slated to be the No. 5 starter in Miami's rotation, gave up four singles and one run in two innings of work.
"I had situations where I couldn't put guys away and kind of left the breaking ball up trying to do too much with it," Koehler said. "I'm happy I was able to get into the count to where I can put them away. I know by the end of spring those pitches have been there for me.
"That's a quality lineup and they're going to make you work and if you don’t execute those pitches every without banging any homers they can still put some (runs) on the board."
Koehler told reporters he will work on changeup before his next scheduled start.
"I threw a couple of changeups for a strike," Koehler said. "That was good. There's no doubt I need to go into my next side session and make sure I get a little crisper with my breaking stuff."
Tom Koehler ends 2014 season at .500
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/25/14) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler ended his 2014 campaign on a bright note, picking up his 10th win of the season Thursday afternoon at home against the Phillies.
Chase Utley got the best of Koehler throughout the day, knocking a run-scoring double in the first and a run-scoring single in the sixth. The right-hander was charged with four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven over seven innings of work. Of his 104 pitches, 68 were strikes.
Koehler ends his season at .500, with a 3.81 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 32 starts (191 1/3 innings).
|2014 Summary: No longer a swingman, Tom Koehler settled into a full-time starting role with the Marlins in 2014. He led all Marlins pitchers with at least 10 starts with a 7.2 K/9 ratio and was fairly consistent, allowing more than three runs in only eight of his 32 starts. Koehler could be wild at times, and when away from the spacious comforts of Marlins Park, he posted a 4.63 ERA. Overall, Koehler was 10-10 with a 3.81 ERA and 1.30 WHIP.|
Playing time status: When Jose Fernandez returns from Tommy John surgery in midseason, Koehler could get sent back to the bullpen. In fact, that could happen even to start the season, especially if Dan Haren opts not to retire and pitch for the Marlins.
2015 Outlook: If we could be certain that Koehler was going to be in the Marlins' rotation, he would be worth using as a standard mixed league streaming option in some two-start weeks and drafting in deeper mixed leagues and NL-only formats. As a potential long reliever, Koehler would have little Fantasy value in any format.
