Kuhl (0-4) allowed six runs (five earned) on five hits and four walks with two strikeouts in 3.1 innings, taking the loss versus Milwaukee on Saturday. Kuhl was spotted a four-run lead in the second inning, but he ultimately gave it all back and then some before he was pulled in the fourth. Reliever Clay Holmes allowed an inherited runner to score, which tacked the sixth run on Kuhl's line. The right-hander has had little success in 2021 with a 6.52 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 23:21 K:BB across 29 innings. His next start is expected to be against Cleveland during next weekend's series.
Kuhl (0-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk with two strikeouts in six innings, taking the loss Sunday versus Miami. He also hit one batter. Kuhl wasn't poor on the mound, as his only big mistake was a Jesus Aguilar solo home run in the second inning. In the sixth, the right-hander yielded an unearned run and a sacrifice fly, and that was enough to take his second loss in as many starts. He's pitched to a 5.61 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 21:17 K:BB across 25.2 innings this season. Kuhl lines up for a road start in Milwaukee next weekend.
Kuhl (0-2) took the loss Monday against the Royals after allowing three runs on six hits while striking out five over four innings. Making his return from a stint on the IL due to a shoulder injury, Kuhl allowed an RBI single in the first and two more runs in the second before settling down over the next two innings. He's now given up at least three runs in four of his five starts, and he's only managed to finish five innings once. One positive to take away from Monday's outing, however, is that Kuhl did not walk a batter -- he walked 16 over his first 15.2 innings this season. The 28-year-old will carry a 6.41 ERA into Sunday's start against the Marlins.
Kuhl (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday's start against the Royals. Kuhl had been on the injured list since April 22 due to right shoulder soreness, but he made a pair of rehab starts and will now return to the major-league club. In his two appearances with Triple-A Indianapolis, the right-hander allowed one run on two hits and three walks while striking out nine in 6.1 innings.
Kuhl (shoulder) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Monday's game against the Royals, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. This news doesn't come as a surprise, with general manager Ben Cherington saying Sunday that he expected Kuhl to take the hill Monday in Kansas City. The Pirates have already optioned pitcher Nick Mears to Triple-A to make a roster spot for Kuhl.
