Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Fans eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl allowed three runs on six hits and a walk over 5.1 innings in Friday's win over the Giants. He struck out eight and did not factor in the decision.

Kuhl's only real issue in Friday's outing was allowing two home runs, including a two-run shot by Alex Dickerson in the sixth inning that knocked Kuhl out of the contest. It was the first time he allowed multiple homers in one outing since April 18 and his ERA bumped slightly to 4.38. Over his last six starts, Kuhl is 3-1 with a 2.51 ERA and a 30:13 K:BB in 32.1 frames. The 28-year-old is projected to face the Brewers at home next week.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Wild in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (3-5) allowed an unearned run on two hits and five walks with three strikeouts in five innings Friday, earning the win over the Mets.

Kuhl hadn't issued five or more free passes in a start since April 13, when he walked seven batters. Despite the lack of control, the right-hander limited the opposition to one run or fewer for the fourth time in his last five starts. He's posted a 4.31 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45:33 K:BB across 56.1 innings this season. Kuhl's next start is expected to be in San Francisco next week if Pittsburgh deploys a six-man rotation coming out of the All-Star break.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Pitches well in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl allowed a run on four hits and zero walks across six innings during Tuesday's win over Atlanta. He struck out seven and didn't factor in the decision.

It's the third time in his past four starts the right-hander has given up exactly one run across six innings, as a solo homer from Orlando Arcia was the only blemish Tuesday. Kuhl has a 4.73 ERA for the season, but he's been much better in his last four outings, posting a 2.42 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB across 22.1 frames.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Cleared to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (finger) is slated to start Tuesday's game against Atlanta, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Kuhl won't miss a turn through the rotation after he battled a blister on his throwing hand during his most recent start June 30 in Colorado. Since being reinstated from the injured list May 31, Kuhl has gone 2-4 with a 4.55 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across six starts.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Chronic issue resurfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl pitched through a blister issue in Wednesday's loss to Colorado, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

He sailed through three scoreless innings before battling a blister. "It started bothering me in the fourth, and then in the fifth, it broke off," Kuhl said. "So I just have like a raw chunk of skin." The timing is poor as Kuhl had won his last two starts, allowing two earned runs in 12 innings. In 2020, he attempted to pitch through a blister injury, only to give up nine earned runs in 2.1 innings against the Royals. Fantasy managers will understandably want to use caution with the righty until he's past his most recent blister issue.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Takes loss in Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (2-5) was handed the loss Wednesday against the Rockies, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks across 4.1 innings. He struck out six.

Kuhl was handed a 2-0 first-inning lead, but the right-hander stumbled in the fourth and fifth innings after beginning the game with three scoreless frames. C.J. Cron wound up being the difference maker as he got to Kuhl for a solo homer in the fourth before adding a sacrifice fly an inning later. Kuhl threw only 82 pitches but wound up exiting after recording just one out in a hectic fifth inning. Kuhl concludes June having allowed 12 earned runs on 20 hits and 12 walks across 25.2 innings. He lines up to make his next start against Atlanta early next week.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Quality start, win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (2-4) won Thursday's 8-2 game against St. Louis, allowing one run on three hits and three walks with two strikeouts in six innings.

For the second straight start, Kuhl went six innings and allowed only one run. His lone run permitted came in the second, but St. Louis never heavily threatened the 28-year-old righty. His ERA has dropped nearly 1.5 runs from 6.52 to 5.05 over the two outings and he'll look to build on the recent success next week in Colorado.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Finally gets into win column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (1-4) picked up the win in Friday's 11-10 victory over Cleveland, allowing one run on four hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four.

The Pirates' bullpen nearly gave away the win after the team took an 11-1 lead into the seventh inning, but Kuhl did get rewarded for his efforts in the end. It was the right-hander's second quality start of the season in eight tries, and he'll carry a 5.66 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 27:22 K:BB through 35 innings into his next outing.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Loses third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Stuck with third loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Handed loss in return from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Officially reinstated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Returning Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (shoulder) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Monday's game against the Royals, Alex Stumpf of 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.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Likely Monday starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Ben Cherington said Sunday that he expects Kuhl (shoulder) to come off the injured list to start Monday's game against the Royals, Jake Crouse of reports.

Kuhl was rumored to be the leading option to start Sunday's series finale against Colorado, but it looks like the right-hander's return will be pushed back one day. Kuhl tallied 3.1 innings (64 pitches) in his latest rehab start Tuesday, so it's unclear how much length he'll be able to provide against the Royals.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Could rejoin rotation Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (shoulder) could be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Sunday's game against the Rockies, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

The decision on reinstating Kuhl from the IL before the weekend concludes will likely hinge on whether the Pirates feel he's ramped up enough after he completed his second rehab start at Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday. He worked 3.1 innings (64 pitches) in the outing, giving up one run on one hit and two walks while striking out four. If the Pirates determine that Kuhl will need one more start in the minors before being activated, Cody Ponce would likely get a second turn through the rotation Sunday.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Another rehab outing on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (shoulder) is expected to make another rehab start with Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Kevin Gorman of reports.

The 26-year-old made his first rehab start at Triple-A on Wednesday, and he's poised to take the mound again Tuesday. Kuhl fired three shutout innings during that outing and should continue building up his workload after being sidelined for the past month by the shoulder issue.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Making progress in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (shoulder), who pitched for Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday, will require another start in the minor leagues before returning to the Pirates, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

He looked good Wednesday, throwing three shutout innings in his first appearance since April 18. Kuhl struck out five batters while allowing only one hit and one walk for Indy. Trevor Cahill (foot) left his start with an injury Wednesday, bringing up the possibility of Kuhl taking his rotation spot, but manager Derek Shelton reiterated that Kuhl will need to make another rehab start after missing the last month.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Rehab assignment on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (shoulder) is scheduled to join Triple-A Indianapolis this week for a rehab assignment, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The 28-year-old has been sidelined since April 18 with the shoulder issue and is expected to require multiple rehab starts before rejoining the Pirates. Kuhl recently completed a two-inning simulated game and should continue ramping up his workload in the minors.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Tosses live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (shoulder) threw live batting practice Saturday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Kuhl is working his way back from a shoulder issue that has sidelined him for over two weeks. His expected return date remains unclear, but he's been throwing in some capacity for 10 days now and has progressed from catch to a side session to live batting practice, so he appears to be on the right track.

May 5, 2021 05:32 PM
Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Throwing side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (shoulder) will throw a side session Wednesday in San Diego, Kevin Gorman of reports.

The 28-year-old is going through his rehab program with the team on the road trip, and he'll be reevaluated after completing the side session. Kuhl landed on the injured list with shoulder soreness April 22 and could advance to facing live hitters soon if all goes well Wednesday.
