Mike Mayers News
Los Angeles Angels relief pitcher Mike Mayers (non-designated) was placed on the injured list on Monday, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register. Fletcher adds that the team expects Mayers to return within a few days, and in the meantime they have recalled relief pitcher Patrick Sandoval to replace him on the roster. Mayers has been a good play in SV/HLD formats this season, posting a 2.51 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings while recording one save and four holds.
Los Angeles Angels reliever Mike Mayers had a bit of a rough spring but he'll open the year with a chance to settle into a high-leverage role behind closer Raisel Iglesias and rack up some holds with the odd save. The 29-year-old allowed five runs on nine hits over 8.1 spring innings but his K-BB of 14-1 gives hope that he'll turn things around soon. The right-hander had a strong 2020 season with the Angels when he appeared in 29 games and posted a K-BB of 43-9 in 30 innings. The club also recently added two veteran relievers, Tony Watson and Steve Cishek, to MLB contacts and they could challenge Mayers for hold opportunities.
St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Mike Mayers had a rough outing against the Brewers on Monday, recording just two outs but allowing three runs on two hits and two walks. The damage came on a three-run home run off the bat of Christian Yelich, breaking a 3-3 tie. Mayers is a solid reliever, but he's not particularly close to the top of the pecking order for saves in St. Louis.
Los Angeles Angels relief pitcher Mike Mayers turned in a strong performance in 2020. It was backed up by a 16% swinging-strike rate and an elite 36% strikeout rate. The change in scenery from St. Louis to Los Angeles did him well. But you should expect some regression in 2021. With a .242 BABIP and a fortunate 6% HR/FB rate in the shortened 2020 season, coupled with just a 33% ground-ball rate, his ERA is primed for negative regression. If you are looking for a middle reliever in 2021 with a high strikeout rate, Mayers might be your man. But don't expect the thrilling ~2.00 ERA and sub-1.00 WHIP to occur once again. Mayers is unlikely to see many save chances behind closer Raisel Iglesias, either.
