Tom Koehler solid, but yet another no-decision


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/14/2014) Tom Koehler turned in his seventh consecutive outing of three runs allowed or fewer on Sunday, but for the fifth straight time, he came away without a decision. Koehler limited the Phillies to three runs (two earned) on seven hits and walk with two strikeouts, and thanks to a ninth-inning rally, the Marlins emerged with a 5-4 win.

The outing dropped Koehler's ERA to 3.71 on the season, and his record stays even at 9-9. His next start will be on Friday against the Nationals.

Koehler was spotted two runs by the offense in the top of the third, and he gave them right back in the bottom half of the inning. He watched his offense score the go-ahead run in the sixth before being lifted for a pinch hitter, but the bullpen gave away the lead late. Koehler owns a 3.74 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 139:65 K:BB ratio in 173 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Phillies Sunday.

Koehler gave up both runs on a fourth-inning home run, but otherwise worked around a bit of wildness to turn in a fine performance. He's delivered four straight quality starts and now owns a 3.74 ERA and 136:62 K:BB ratio in 168 1/3 innings. Koehler is scheduled to face the Brewers Tuesday.

The Marlins managed to come back in the following inning, giving Koehler a no-decision. He’ll take on the Mets in his next start.


Tom Koehler picks up quality start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Over his last three starts covering 18 2/3 innings, Koehler has allowed only four earned runs. He owns a 3.70 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP and 97:47 K:BB ratio through 22 starts (131 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

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.

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.
