Kuhl didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's win over the Giants, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks over six innings while striking out six.

Kuhl attributes his seven innings of one-hit, shutout pitching Sunday to improved mechanics and a greater reliance on off-speed offerings. "I think having the changeup, when I throw it well, I have to nail my checkpoints in my delivery," he told DK Pittsburgh Sports. "I think being able to execute the off-speed in hitters' counts was the biggest thing."

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Kuhl started 2016 in the shadows of fellow Triple-A arms Jameson Taillon and Tyler Glasnow but carved out his own niche by season's end. Primarily relying upon a sinking fastball (93.2 mph average) with heavy drop, Kuhl exceeded expectations and gave Pittsburgh one of its few reliable second-half starting options. He compiled a 4.20 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 50:32 K:BB in 14 starts (70.2 innings) after registering a 2.37 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 83.2 Triple-A innings. Kuhl doesn't blow hitters off the map, but few pitchers carry his feisty attitude. The innings-eater appears poised to begin 2017 in the big league rotation, and profiles long term as a No. 4 or No. 5 starter.
