Tom Koehler looks sharp in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) 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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) 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
(7/8/2014) 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


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) 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
(7/3/2014) 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 fans seven in shutout win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler picked up his first win in nearly a month Wednesday, as he took down the Phillies, 5-0.

Koehler finished with six shutout innings in the game, after working his way out of a jam in the first inning that saw him allow consecutive singles to open the game. Koehler ended up allowing just three hits and a walk over his six innings of work, while striking out seven.

Koehler was placed on the paternity leave list following the game, which improved his record to 6-6. That move is unlikely to cost him a turn in the rotation, and he carries a 3.48 ERA into his start scheduled for Monday in Arizona. 


Tom Koehler settles for no-decision after six strong innings


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler twirled a quality start for the second outing in a row without a win to show for it, in a 5-3 loss to the Phillies.

Koehler actually exited the game in line for his first win in four starts, but the bullpen could not make it stand up. He was charged with two runs on seven hits in six innings, while striking out six batters and walking none on 92 pitches.

Koehler remains 5-6 on the season with a 3.70 ERA and has just one win in his last seven starts. He will look to end the drought in his next outing, set for Wednesday against the Phillies.  


Tom Koehler strikes out eight in loss vs. Mets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler was stuck with a loss Saturday, giving up two earned runs on four hits and three walks in seven innings and striking out eight in his team's 4-0 defeat against the Mets.

Koehler (5-6) turned in his best effort in four starts this month Saturday, but by surrendering single runs on base hits in the fourth and sixth inning, he wasn't able to pick up a win with the offense stagnant. He owns a 3.74 ERA and 69:38 K:BB ratio in 91 1/3 innings. Koehler is slated to face the Phillies Thursday.


Tom Koehler settles for no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Marlins starter Tom Koehler turned in a decent outing but was unable to factor into the decision Monday night at home against the Cubs. The right-hander permitted four runs on five hits and no walks while striking out five over six innings of work.

Over his last two starts covering 11 1/3 innings, Koehler has allowed nine earned runs. He owns a 3.84 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. He will make his next start Saturday at home against the Mets.

Rough eighth knocks Tom Koehler out of line for win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Marlins starter Tom Koehler fell apart late in Tuesday's game against the Rangers, but the offense a bullpen picked him up in an 8-5 win.

Koehler the Rangers to just one run through his first five innings of work, and was holding a 4-1 lead heading into the sixth. Unfortunately, that was when the wheels came off, as he allowed four consecutive baserunners to open the frame, before being chased after a sacrifice fly.

Koehler was tagged for five runs in 5 1/3 innings, as all four runners who reached in the sixth came around to score. He allowed five hits and three walks, while striking out seven batters on 83 pitches in the no-decision.

Koehler remains .500 through 13 starts, as he carries a 5-5 record and 3.68 ERA into his next outing, likely to come Monday against the Cubs.


Tom Koehler surrenders three runs in win vs. Rays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler secured a win Wednesday, giving up three earned runs on six hits and four walks in five innings while striking out four in his team's 5-4 victory over the Rays.

Koehler (5-5) gave up all three runs on back-to-back home runs by the second and third hitters of the first inning, but he was able to make it through the rest of the start without another run crossing the plate. He owns a 3.33 ERA and 49:32 K:BB ratio in 73 innings. Koehler will square off with the Rangers Tuesday.


Tom Koehler bounces back, still takes loss vs. Braves


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Coming off his worst start of the season, Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler bounced back with a fine effort in a 3-2 loss to the Braves Friday.

Koehler pitched into the seventh inning for the fifth time in 11 starts, and the Braves couldn’t touch him for most of the outing. He allowed three runs, all in the sixth and seventh innings, while scattering seven hits and four walks. He also struck out five batters while throwing 102 pitches in the loss.

Despite the solid outing, Koehler fell to 4-5 on the season. He carries a 3.18 ERA into his next outing, set for Wednesday in Tampa Bay.


Rain pushes Henderson Alvarez, Tom Koehler back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) With Tuesday's game against the Nationals rained out, the Marlins will push scheduled starter Henderson Alvarez back a day.

The team announced Alvarez will take the mound for Wednesday's series finale in Washington, pushing Tom Koehler out of his scheduled start. Koehler will instead start Friday's series opener against the Braves in Miami, followed by Jacob Turner Saturday and Nate Eovaldi Sunday. 


Brewers jump all over Tom Koehler


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Tom Koehler's up-and-down season continued Friday, in a 9-5 loss to the Brewers.

Less than a week after tossing seven scoreless innings on the road, Koehler was hit hard at home this time. He surrendered seven runs in his worst start of the season, including four on a pair of home runs by Mark Reynolds. He allowed nine hits in five innings, while striking out three without issuing a walk on 67 pitches.

Koehler been solid more often than not this season, and still has a 3.10 ERA to go along with his 4-4 record. His next start is set for Wednesday in Washington. 


Tom Koehler tosses seven shutout frames for win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Tom Koehler twirled what might have been his finest start of the season Saturday, in a 5-0 win over the Giants.

Koehler tossed his fourth outing with at least seven shutout innings, and limiting the Giants to just four hits. Only one of those hits went for extra bases, and he also struck out seven batters and walked just two in seven full innings in the win.

Koehler is now 4-3 in nine starts, while ranking eighth in the National League with a 2.25 ERA in 56 innings. He will try to keep up his fantastic start in his next outing, set for Friday against the Brewers.  


Tom Koehler takes early exit vs. Dodgers Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler couldn't make it out of the fourth inning Monday, giving up four earned runs on six hits and five walks in 3 2/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 6-5 loss to the Dodgers.

Koehler (3-3) managed to work in and out of trouble for three innings to enter the fourth with a 3-1 advantage, but Yasiel Puig crushed a three-run home run after a pair of walks. After giving up a single to the next batter, Koehler was pulled with 103 pitches already in the bank. He owns a 2.57 ERA and 30:22 K:BB ratio in 49 innings. Koehler is scheduled to take on the Giants Saturday.


Stop the insanity, Tom Koehler


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/7/2014) I don't get it. I don't trust it, and I don't get it.

But Tom Koehler continues to do it anyway.

His latest feat: two-hitting the Mets over eight shutout innings Wednesday. At least the peripherals look OK this time. I can get behind five strikeouts to one walk. What I can't get behind is his 29 strikeouts to 17 walks on the season.

Not only is that a poor ratio in and of itself, but his 5.8 strikeouts per nine innings and 3.3 walks per nine innings are both below the league average. A below-average rate in just one of those areas would be a red flag. Both should make you wonder what exactly Koehler is doing right.

The truth is I kind of liked him coming into the season as a deeper-league streamer type because he throws hard and gets a bunch of ground balls, but to remain relevant in mixed leagues, he'll have to be as skilled at avoiding hard contact as the inexplicably effective Travis Wood. And without any sort of track record to back it up, I'm betting against it.

Consider shopping Koehler for a player you couldn't see yourself dropping in a month.


Tom Koehler throws eight scoreless, gets no run support


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Tom Koehler was magnificent over eight scoreless innings Wednesday against the Mets. Unfortunately, he settled for a no-decision as he got no run support and left after eight innings in a scoreless game.

Koehler was locked in all afternoon, and even retired 18 straight batters at one point before Curtis Granderson drew a two-out walk in the seventh inning. The right-hander allowed just two hits and one walk, while striking out five.

Koehler lowered his ERA from 2.41 to 1.99. He hasn't allowed a run through two May starts (15 innings). He will be back on the mound Monday against the Dodgers.


Tom Koehler twirls a gem in win over Dodgers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2014) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler bounced back and dominated the Dodgers on Friday, scattering three hits in seven scoreless innings to improve to 3-2 on the year. Koehler struck out four and walked two, improving his ERA to 2.41. He tossed 91 pitches, 56 for strikes.

Koehler has five quality starts this season. He owns a 1.13 WHIP and a 24:16 K:BB ratio over 37 1/3 innings. Following the 6-2 home victory, Koehler will look to keep things going Wednesday at home against the Mets.

Tom Koehler's string of quality starts snapped


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2014) For the first time this season, Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler did not produce a quality start. Koehler was tagged for four earned runs in five innings of Sunday's 4-0 loss at the Mets.

Koehler struggled with his control, walking four. Only 62 of his 109 pitches went for strikes. Koehler struck out two while seeing his ERA rise to 2.97. He had delivered four quality starts to begin the season.

Koehler came apart in the fifth when he allowed a run-scoring double to David Wright and Chris Young's two-run homer. Now 2-2, Koehler will try to bounce back Saturday against the Dodgers.


Tom Koehler strikes out eight in quality start vs. Braves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2014) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler gave up two earned runs on five hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out eight but not factoring into the decision in his team's 4-2 loss to the Braves Monday.

Koehler held the Braves scoreless through four innings before a fifth-inning home run tied things at 1-1. He then gave up a couple hits in the seventh inning, with the bullpen letting one runner score. Koehler has turned in quality starts in each of his first four starts while posting a 2.13 ERA and 18:10 K:BB ratio in 25 1/3 innings. He's on track to face the Mets in New York Sunday.


Tom Koehler pitches seven one-hit innings in win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler gave up just one hit in seven scoreless innings while walking five and striking out three in his team's 11-2 win over the Nationals Tuesday.

Koehler (2-1) was effectively wild in the outing, keeping the Nationals from any solid contact but also dishing out five free passes and throwing just 64 of his 112 pitches for strikes. He's posted three straight quality starts while turning in a 1.89 ERA and 10:8 K:BB ratio in 19 innings. Koehler is due to take on the Braves in Atlanta Monday.


Tom Koehler not backed by much run support in loss to Nats


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Tom Koehler looked sharp again on Thursday, but was not backed by enough run support, suffering his first loss of the season against the Nationals.

Koehler (1-1) surrendered a two-run home run to Jayson Werth in the third inning for his only blemish on the afternoon. He was charged with two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six in six innings of work. He tossed 96 pitches, 60 of which were strikes.

Koehler has allowed just four runs over his first 12 innings pitched in two starts. He'll get another crack at a win against the Nationals on Tuesday, this time at Marlins Park.

Tom Koehler opens season with quality start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Tom Koehler continued the team's strong run to open the season, as he tossed a quality start Friday in an 8-2 win over the Padres.

Koehler tossed six strong innings in the win, limiting the Padres to two runs on seven hits and a walk. He struck out just one batter while throwing 56 of 89 pitches for strikes, though he did record more groundball outs (nine) than flyballs (eight).

Koehler won the No. 5 starter battle out of spring training, after posting a 4.41 ERA in 143 innings a year ago. His next start should come Thursday in Washington. 


Tom Koehler set in rotation; Brad Hand in bullpen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) The fifth spot in the Marlins rotation has been handed to right-hander Tom Koehler, but left-hander Brad Hand should get a big hand as well. He made the team as a reliever.

Koehler earned the spot by yielding just three earned runs in 18 innings this spring. Hand clinched one Thursday by hurling four shutout innings against St. Louis. He surrendered just two hits and one walk while striking out two.
