Player Outlook
Luke Maile has carved out a nice career for himself as a backup catcher in the league since 2015, and that career track will continue as the Reds re-signed Maile in the offseason to one-year deal with a club option. Maile's career high for plate appearances came in 2018, but has come in right around 200 plate appearances each of the past two seasons. He has value in the new era of real baseball as a good thrower beind the plate having gunned down 34% of potential basestealers while catching for both Ohio-based clubs. He has the power to barrel up mistakes, but is otherwise perfectly suited for the job he has and his fantasy value is limited to two-catcher NL-Only leagues.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Draws fourth straight start

    Maile will start at catcher and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Padres. Maile will make his fourth consecutive start while Tyler Stephenson tends to a hand injury. The Reds continue to view Stephenson as day-to-day, so Maile could soon be headed back to the No. 2 role behind the dish.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Behind dish Wednesday

    Maile will start at catcher and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Brewers. Maile will get his fifth start behind the plate in the Reds' 12th game of the season Wednesday while Tyler Stephenson rests. Though Stephenson still appears to be viewed as the Reds' No. 1 catcher, Maile looks like he'll get the chance to start once per series while Cincinnati looks to keep Stephenson fresh for the duration of the campaign.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Big day at plate

    Maile went 3-for-4 with a home run, five RBI and an additional run scored in Wednesday's spring game against San Francisco. Balls were flying out the park in Scottsdale, as the two teams combined for 10 home runs in a 19-11 victory for the Reds. Maile's grand slam was one of seven homers for Cincinnati. He's on a tear this spring, batting .471 with a 1.432 OPS, including two home runs and nine RBI. Maile is slated to back up Tyler Stephenson at catcher.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Re-signs with Cincinnati

    The Reds re-signed Maile to a one-year contract Thursday with a club option for 2025. Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that the guaranteed value of the deal is $3.5 million. Maile owns an underwhelming .212/.275/.328 career batting line in 380 major-league games, but the 32-year-old catcher has a solid defensive reputation and will return as an active backup to Tyler Stephenson, who often gets starts in the DH role.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Contributes to comeback win

    Maile went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 11-7 win over the Guardians. Maile and the rest of the lineup overcame a short three-inning outing from starter Hunter Greene. The journeyman catcher belted a solo homer in the third third inning, then lashed a two-out, two-run single in the fifth that plated the game-winning run. Maile has six home runs, 25 RBI and a .723 OPS over 75 games.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Returns to action

    Maile (hand) is starting behind the dish and hitting ninth Wednesday against the Twins. He has been out a few days with a bruised hand, but it's not an overly serious issue. Maile is hitting .059 with two runs and one RBI in 17 at-bats this month.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Out with bruised hand

    Maile (hand) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Twins. Maile hasn't appeared in a game since Friday due to a bruised left hand, but X-rays taken Saturday turned up clean and he should be available off the bench Tuesday versus Minnesota. Tyler Stephenson is starting at catcher for the Reds and batting fifth.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: X-rays negative

    Maile (hand) underwent X-rays Saturday which came back negative, MLB.com reports. With the X-rays confirming Maile has nothing more serious than a bruised hand, the catcher was available Sunday but did not appear in an 8-4 loss to the Mets.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Scratched with bruised hand

    Maile was scratched from the lineup Saturday against the Mets due to a bruised left hand. Tyler Stephenson had been due for a day off but will instead start behind the plate. Assuming Maile's injury doesn't turn out to be anything worse than a bruise, he should be back in the lineup soon.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Homers, collects three hits

    Maile went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Giants. Maile got the Reds on the board with a two-run shot off Alex Cobb in the bottom of the third and later added two singles, giving him his first three-hit game of the season. The catcher was 0-for-11 at the plate in July coming in, while the home run was his first since May 20 against the Yankees. He's caught all nine starts of rookie left-hander Andrew Abbott, who has a sterling 2.10 ERA and has given the starting rotation a lift.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Two hits, homer Wednesday

    Maile went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies. Maile extended Cincinnati's lead to 2-0 with an RBI double in the second inning. He'd add a home run, his second of the season, off Austin Gomber in the fifth. It was a solid showing from Maile in a rare start -- he's typically the Reds' third catching option behind Tyler Stephenson and Curt Casali. The veteran backstop is now slashing a solid .278/.333/.500 through 39 plate appearances this season.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Signs with Reds

    Maile signed a one-year deal with the Reds on Monday. Maile slashed .221/.301/.326 through 206 plate appearances last season for Cleveland, and found a decent amount of success against left-handed pitching (.300 AVG, 8 RBI). Tyler Stephenson will likely remain Cincinnati's primary option behind the plate, but Maile could still see a good chunk of playing time in 2023 as a backup.

  • Luke Maile: Non-tendered by Cleveland

    The Guardians declined to tender Maile a contract for 2023, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Maile has bounced around between Tampa Bay, Toronto, Milwaukee and Cleveland so far in his big-league career. He provides quality defense behind the plate but packs little punch with the bat, and his pitch framing was poor last year according to Statcast.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Goes yard Monday

    Maile went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 11-4 win over the Twins. Maile sparked the Guardians' four-run rally in the eighth inning with a solo shot. The catcher has gone 4-for-25 (.160) across 11 games in September, though he's only logged an at-bat in eight of those contests. He's now slashing .221/.301/.337 with three homers, 16 RBI, 18 runs scored and 10 doubles through 186 plate appearances as the backup to Austin Hedges.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Continues hot August

    Maile went 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored in Wednesday's 7-0 win over San Diego. Maile tallied an RBI single off lefty starter Blake Snell with one out in the fourth to put Cleveland up 4-0. The catcher has been swinging a hot bat in August with a .394 average and 1.065 OPS over 33 at-bats in 10 games. Furthermore, the 31-year-old has eight RBI during that span and at least one hit in nine of those contests.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Plates two Tuesday

    Maile went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Diamondbacks. Maile was the only Guardian with multiple hits in the contest. He knocked in two of their three runs with a second-inning single and a sixth-inning double. The catcher hit a meager .219 in 15 games in July, and he's likely to remain in a backup role to Austin Hedges over the final two months of the campaign. Maile has a .206/.308/.294 slash line with no home runs, nine doubles, eight RBI and 15 runs scored in 120 plate appearances this year.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Sitting Wednesday

In Tuesday's 11-4 loss, Maile went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored.
