Tyler Mahle News
Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell named right-hander Tyler Mahle as the team's Opening Day starter against the Atlanta Braves on April 7. With Sonny Gray traded to the Twins and Luis Castillo (shoulder) dealing with shoulder soreness, the Reds tabbed Mahle to start the team's opener. The 27-year-old was the subject of many trade rumors as the Reds had a firesale this offseason, dealing Jesse Winker, Eugenio Suarez, and Gray. Mahle is a central piece to the Reds' rotation, setting career-highs in wins (13), innings (180), and strikeouts (210) in 2021.
Cincinnati Reds starter Tyler Mahle isn't expected to be traded despite the team's ongoing fire sale, general manager Nick Krall told Bobby Nightengale Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Krall, who noted that the team still intends to add to its roster, won't trade Luis Castillo, either. This development comes after the Reds traded Sonny Gray, Jesse Winker, Eugenio Suarez, Amir Garrett, and Francis Peguero within the course of four days. Clearly, Cincinnati isn't in a position to be competitive this season, so perhaps they'll let Mahle build up his trade value and then shop him around at the trade deadline. The right-hander had quite the impressive 2021 season, going 13-6 with a 3.75 ERA, 24.7 percent strikeout rate, and 8.4 percent walk rate.
The New York Mets reportedly have had trade talks with the Cincinnati Reds for pitcher Tyler Mahle. Last season, he posted an impressive strikeout rate (27.7%) while keeping walks under control (8.4%). The 27-year-old is a central piece to the Reds' rotation, setting career-highs in wins (13), innings (180), and strikeouts (210) in 2021. The Mets are looking to add another starter and will continue to talk with the Reds about acquiring the right-hander. Moving from hitter-friendly Great American Ball Park to more pitcher-friendly Citi Field would only help Mahle's fantasy value. Stay tuned for further updates.
Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Tyler Mahle continues his progression and is ready to be a mainstay in your fantasy rotation. He maximized every opportunity in the shortened 2020 and provided 47 innings of 3.59 ERA (3.88 FIP) and 1.15 WHIP with nine starts. Mahle was also in the 90th percentile with his .188 xBA and generated 33% Chase and 14% Swinging Strike rates. A change in his pitch mix led to most of his success. Mahle dropped the cutter he used in 2019 for the slider he employed in 2018; it was a smart move as it generated a 37% strikeout rate. While that all sounds rosy, we must point out that there will be a little correction of his BABIP (.255) and that he needs to keep his generosity in check. Mahle walked 10.4% of batters which drags down the excitement of his 30% strikeout rate. It is also quite risky to employ a 50% fly ball strategy if you call Great American Ball Park your home. There's no question Mahle has made great strides thus far. If he can limit the walks and keep the ball in the yard at a respectable level, he'll provide plenty of value, even at his current ADP of 174. It might be smart to make sure you've already rostered a couple of quality foundational starters before he joins your staff.
