Tom Koehler’s WHIP and Earned Run Average have been on a steady climb since 2014 when he posted career bests in both categories.
He was down close to three walks per nine innings that season and his control has slowly abandoned him since. This season, he’s walked eight in just 15 innings.
It’s a small sample but the three-year trend isn’t. This is a concerning fact for Marlin fans.
If there’s any team that can help a pitcher get back on track though, it’s historically been the San Diego Padres, at least over the last five, six seasons.
San Diego Padres
Austin Hedges is providing some power behind the plate with four home runs already. He’s got a .456 slugging percentage, which is huge considering he’s hitting just .176.
When he makes good contact, it goes a long way.
Luis Perdomo returns from a shoulder injury that landed him on the Disabled List after just one start in the first week of the season.
He got hit for seven hits and five earned runs allowed in 5.1 innings of work against the Giants in that outing.
The 23-year-old from the Dominican Republic posted a 5.71 ERA in nearly 150 innings in his rookie season last year. Obviously, given his age and experience, he’s hoping to build on those results in 2017.

Free Miami Marlins vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction: Miami wins an unexpected pitcher’s duel.
I like Koehler to get back on track against San Diego, pitching well. But something has possessed me to get behind Perdomo here too. He won’t pitch well enough to win, but something close to a quality start could happen.
