Scouting Report: Tom Koehler isn't a particularly good pitcher. He throws hard - averages 93-94 mph - but he adds little else to his arsenal despite all of the pitch types above. The righty will add a cutter and sinker occasionally, but for the most part it's fastball-curveball with a change-up added in against left-handers.
Analysis: Koehler doesn't do much statistically to make anyone but the other team happy. His 14% K rate and 9% BB rate are both below-average, but Koehler does do an excellent job of keeping the ball on the ground - 1.85 GB/FB. The groundballs aren't enough to save, however, and his 4.75 ERA is pretty legitimate.
