NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- New Rochelle High School graduate Tommy Koehler, who was drafted by the Miami Marlins in the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft, was elevated to the Marlins' roster Sunday.
Koehler, a 26-year-old right-handed pitcher, was promoted from the Marlins' AAA New Orleans minor league team, where he had a record of 12-11 with a 4.17 earned run average. He has a career record of 54-31 in the minor leagues.
Koehler graduated New Rochelle High School in 2004 and attended Stony Brook University, from where he was drafted by the Marlins. Since entering professional baseball, Koehler has played in the minor leagues with the Jamestown Jammers (2008), the Greensboro Grasshoppers (2009), the Jupiter Hammerheads (2009) and the Jacksonville Suns (2010).
In 2010, he was selected to the Southern League All-Star Game en route to leading the league in wins. He also tied a Jacksonville Suns franchise record in that category.
The Marlins are hosting the New York Mets in a three-game series this weekend and will play at 1:15 p.m. Sunday.
