Mahle is taking the place of Homer Bailey in the Reds' rotation and initially appeared lined up to start Monday against the Dodgers, but as he hasn't pitched since Aug. 30 he'll instead be bumped up a day. He allowed 20 earned runs in 10.2 innings over his last four big-league starts but may have righted the ship at Triple-A Louisville, as he posted a 2.73 ERA there in five starts after an early August demotion.
