by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com (5/18/2013) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler allowed a leadoff home run to Gerardo Parra but suffered a tough-luck 1-0 loss Saturday night against the Diamondbacks.
Koehler (0-2), who made his second start of the season, held the Diamonbacks to three hits over six innings. He struck out seven and walked two.
Koehler has allowed three runs over 11 innings since joining the starting rotation. He has struck out eight and walked three over that span. He is scheduled to make his next start Friday at the White Sox.
Tom Koehler falls in first start
by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com (5/13/2013) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler was pegged with his first loss Sunday against the Dodgers. Koehler, who was making his second career big-league start and first this year after replacing Wade LeBlanc in the starting rotation, allowed two runs on seven hits over five innings in the 5-3 loss.
He surrendered a solo home run to Scott Van Slyke in the second before Nick Punto brought home Skip Schumaker in the fourth.
Koehler was pulled after throwing 79 pitches, 50 strikes, and finished with one walk and one strikeout. He is slated to face the Diamondbacks at home next Saturday.
"I don't feel much different than if I would have been starting consistently. So I guess that's a good sign, and now I can build off it," Koehler said.
Tom Koehler worth a brief look
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (5/10/2013) Playing for the Marlins is hardly a pitcher's dream, but there are certain advantages. Specifically, the team's home ballpark has proven to be one of the most pitcher-friendly in the majors, which explains why Miami's pitchers have a very solid 3.70 ERA at home this season.
With this in mind, Fantasy owners in NL-only formats might want to take a look at Tom Koehler, who the team just announced will enter the rotation moving forward. Koehler is an unremarkable pitcher who is long past the age where he might be considered a prospect, but he could be useful when he pitches at home, where even well-hit balls tend to die at the warning track.
In 24 2/3 innings at the major-league level, mostly in relief, Koehler has 22 strikeouts and eight walks, with a 4.38 ERA. If he could simply sustain that as a member of the rotation, he might be worth sticking into your NL-only lineup when the Marlins play at home.

Koehler has posted a 3.18 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 9:6 K:BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings over six relief appearances with the Marlins this season. He made three starts in Triple-A before being recalled, allowing just two earned runs on seven hits and 10 walks in 17 innings while striking out 14.

Koehler shelled in first start
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst (3/6/2013) After making three relief appearances in Grapefruit League play, Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler finally took the mound as a starter, but he didn't fare nearly as well.

St. Louis tallied seven hits and two walks, and Koehler struck out just one batter.
