RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Koehler pushed his way through his most effective season as a professional in 2014, making 32 starts for the Marlins and going 10-10 with a 3.81 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. He managed to bump his strikeout rate to 19.1%, up from 15.3% during his rookie season while continuing to show average command. He proved to enjoy some good old home cooking last season, working his 92-mph fastball to a 3.00 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 96 innings at Marlins Park. Entering 2015, Koehler will have the inside track to a spot in the back end of the rotation, but he’ll need to perform well to stick over the balance of the season as the team will welcome back ace Jose Fernandez at some point over the summer.
Koehler provided some much-needed innings for the Marlins throughout the 2013 summer, taking the hill for 23 starts and becoming a real asset at the back-end of the rotation while the team constantly attempted to cover for injuries and ineffectiveness. Koehler did a nice job when asked to take the ball every fifth day, working 140 innings and posting a 4.41 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. Koehler is not going to blow anyone away with his low-90s fastball so he'll need to work on lowering the 3.4 BB/9 he posted last season to show continued success against major league hitters. He posted a solid 1.61 GB/FB ratio in 2013, however, and remains in position to pitch his way into the rotation as the Marlins let their crop of young pitchers mature in the minors a little longer.
Koehler made 28 starts for Triple-A New Orleans, posting a 4.17 ERA and 1.42 WHIP to go along with a 12-11 record, prior to getting work in the Marlins' bullpen in September. After a rocky four-run outing in his first appearance, Koehler settled in to allow just one earned run over his next six appearances and was rewarded with a chance to make his first big league start on the last day of the season. Though he was tagged with his first major-league loss on that day, the 26-year-old capped off a solid season that saw him make strides with his command and effectiveness. Koehler will get a chance to earn a spot in the now wide-open Marlins' rotation during spring training, but his upside is limited.
