Player Outlook
The 2023 campaign was Phil Maton's best season to date as the right-hander posted an impressive 3.00 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 74:25 K:BB over 66 innings with Houston. His standout season earned him a nice raise, as the veteran reliever signed a one-year, $6.25 million deal with Tampa Bay. While Maton is unlikely to see many save chances with the Rays, his impressive strikeout rate should keep him in their high-leverage mix. Maton doesn't throw hard - his fastball averages just 89 mph - but his curveball has been outstanding and even became his primary offering (40.4 percent pitch usage in 2023). The 30-year-old can be prone to the long ball (1.1 HR/9 for his career), but Maton is talented enough to draw consideration as a late round pick in AL-only and 50-round draft-and-hold formats.

  • Mets' Phil Maton: Shipped to Mets

    The Rays traded Maton to the Mets on Tuesday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash. In 40 appearances with the Rays, Maton has posted a 4.58 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 35.1 innings -- a considerable step back from his 3.00 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 2023. He'll now head to New York in order to add depth to the Mets' bullpen and will likely remain in a middle-relief role. Joey Lucchesi was designated for assignment in order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Rays' Phil Maton: Picks up first save

    Maton picked up the save over the Mets on Saturday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning while issuing one walk. Maton entered the contest with a two-run lead in the top of the ninth and needed six pitches to retire the leadoff batter before surrendering a walk to Harrison Bader. However, the right-hander was able to record the final two outs following the free pass to secure his first save of the season. Maton has now pitched two scoreless innings over his last two appearances after being tagged with the loss against the White Sox a week ago. However, he also needed 19 pitches to get through each of those two outings.

  • Rays' Phil Maton: Takes loss against White Sox

    Maton (0-2) allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit across one-third of an inning to blow the save and take the loss Saturday against the White Sox. Maton entered the game in the 10th inning with a one-run lead and recorded the first out without incident. However, he served up a two-run home run to Andrew Benintendi one batter later to take his second loss of the campaign. The outing also increased Maton's ERA to 7.59 for the season, though the majority of that damage came from one outing. He also entered Saturday's game having turned in five consecutive scoreless appearances.

  • Rays' Phil Maton: Signs with Tampa Bay

    Maton signed a contract with the Rays on Saturday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. The 2023 campaign was Maton's best season to date with a 3.00 ERA and 1.12 WHIP alongside a 74:25 K:BB through 66 innings with the Astros. The presence of Pete Fairbanks and Jason Adam will likely prevent Maton from receiving many save opportunities with his new club, but his impressive strikeout rate should allow him to remain an option in high-leverage situations.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Back from IL

    The Astros reinstated Maton (elbow) from the 15-day injured list Monday. Right-hander Ronel Blanco was sent to Triple-A Sugar Land to clear room on the 26-man active roster for Maton, who spent the minimum amount of time on the shelf with the bruised elbow. Maton has collected one save, three wins and eight holds while pitching to a 3.04 ERA and 1.12 WHIP across 53.1 innings out of the bullpen this season.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Begins rehab assignment

    Maton (elbow) is beginning a rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Sugar Land, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. Maton is expected to make only one appearance with Sugar Land before returning to the Astros' bullpen Sunday or Monday. The 30-year-old right-hander was sporting a 3.04 ERA and 58:21 K:BB through 53.1 innings of work when he landed on the 15-day injured list Aug. 12 with a bruised elbow.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Aiming for Sunday or Monday return

    Maton (elbow) threw a bullpen session at Minute Maid Park on Wednesday and could begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sugar Land on Friday, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. Maton has now thrown two bullpen sessions over the last three days and has responded well to both of them, so he looks like he'll be ready to test himself in a game setting. The right-hander said he expects to require only rehab appearance prior to being activated from the 15-day injured list. If all goes well during his time at Sugar Land, Maton could be reinstated as soon as Sunday or Monday.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Could return next weekend

    Maton (elbow) could return from the 15-day injured list Sunday when first eligible, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Maton threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Monday without issue, and he's set to throw another Wednesday. If all goes well Wednesday, Maton looks like he could return to the Houston bullpen this weekend without going on a minor-league rehab assignment beforehand.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Throws off mound

    Maton (elbow) threw off a mound Saturday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. Maton has been out for a week after taking a comebacker off his right elbow. He avoided structural damage and is already ramping up again, however, so he doesn't appear to be set for a long absence. He's eligible to return Aug. 27.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Exits after being hit by comebacker

    Maton was removed from Friday's appearance versus the Angels after being hit by a comebacker in the right elbow, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. He was facing his first batter in the top of the ninth when Eduardo Escobar smoked a 90.2 mph line drive back up the middle and off Maton's pitching elbow. He'll head for testing after the game.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Picks up first save

    Maton picked up the save in Sunday's win over the Angels. He allowed one run on two hits and one walk while striking out one in one inning. Houston mounted a late comeback, and Maton was able to escape with the save after coughing up a solo homer to Shohei Ohtani. It was Maton's first save chance of the year. He's sporting a 2.51 ERA with a 51:14 K:BB and six holds through 46.2 frames.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Handed loss versus Angels

    Maton (0-1) took the loss Sunday against the Angels after allowing a run on two hits over an inning of work. He struck out one. Maton relieved J.P. France to start the eighth with the game tied at one apiece and couldn't silence the Angels' bats. He surrendered a leadoff single and then a two-out double, which plated a run to put the Halos in front. The 30-year-old has given up three runs on five hits over his last two innings after he had tossed 10.2 scoreless frames from May 6 through May 30. Overall, he's still been a useful arm out of the bullpen for manager Dusty Baker and now sits at a 1.26 ERA, 0.70 WHIP, 31:4 K:BB and has four holds over 28.2 innings this season.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Fully recovered from hand injury

    Maton (hand) said Thursday that he's fully healthy and expects to have a normal spring training, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Maton clarified that he might be "one bullpen behind," but it sounds like he won't have any restrictions at the start of camp. The reliever missed the postseason last year after fracturing his pitching hand when he punched his locker.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Reaches deal for 2023

    Maton (hand) agreed to a one-year, $2.55 million contract with the Astros on Friday to avoid arbitration, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Maton was a solid reliever for the Astros last year with a 3.84 ERA across 67 appearances, though he missed the entirety of the postseason after he punched a locker and fractured his hand at the end of the regular season. Assuming he's fully recovered for Opening Day, the right-hander should see some high-leverage work in front of closer Ryan Pressly and top setup man Rafael Montero.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Works immaculate inning

    Maton struck out all three batters he faced in the seventh inning of Wednesday's 9-2 win over the Rangers. Maton threw nine pitches -- all for strikes -- to retire the side, allowing him to complete the 108th immaculate inning in MLB history. Starter Luis Garcia also threw an immaculate inning in the bottom of the second, with him and Maton becoming the first teammates in league annals to achieve the feat in the same game. Though Maton has now turned in a 2.25 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over eight innings in his last nine appearances, he has yet to gain much traction in a high-leverage role, as he hasn't recorded a save or hold during that stretch.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Earns win in relief

    Maton (6-0) earned the win Saturday against the Athletics by recording one out, allowing one hit and one walk. Maton recorded his sixth win of the campaign, and while he recorded just one out, he needed 19 pitches to get the job done (12 strikes). If this was his final outing of the campaign, then Maton will end the year with a 4.73 ERA across 66.2 innings in 65 appearances. He has posted an ERA above the 4.00 mark in each of his five big-league seasons.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Survives for win

    Maton (5-0) allowed one run on two hits while striking out two over 1.1 innings to earn the win over Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Maton pitched the ninth inning of a tie game and ceded a solo home run to Randy Arozarena but was bailed out by Houston's offense. The Astros silently walked off the Rays with two bases-loaded walks in the bottom half of the inning to make a winner of Maton. Since being acquired from the Indians at the trade deadline, the right-handed reliever is 3-0 with a 5.25 ERA and 1.58 WHIP over 24 innings for Houston.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Yields pair of runs in win

    Maton (3-0) allowed two runs on three hits and struck out two in one inning to earn the win Friday versus Texas. The right-hander had an ugly sixth inning, but Houston rallied for all five of its runs in the seventh to put Maton in line for the win. It was his first decision since he joined Houston at the trade deadline. The 28-year-old has struggled mightily in his last 11 appearances, giving up nine runs (eight earned) in his last 11.1 innings, so he should be expected to mostly work in a low-leverage spots in a deep Houston bullpen.

  • Astros' Phil Maton: Traded to Astros

    Maton was acquired by Houston from Cleveland on Friday in exchange for outfielder Myles Straw, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Maton struggled over the first couple months of the season for Cleveland, but he's pitched well since mid-June with a 2.04 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB across 17.2 innings. The 28-year-old could see occasional high-leverage spots for the Astros but should primarily work in middle relief.

  • Indians' Phil Maton: Seeing more high-leverage spots

    Maton has earned holds in three of his five appearances since the All-Star break. He's allowed one run on four hits and a walk with eight strikeouts in that span. Maton's season numbers aren't great -- 4.43 ERA, 1.28 WHIP -- but he's given up just three runs in his last 17 appearances. The right-hander has added four holds, a blown save and a 2-0 record. With James Karinchak and Emmanuel Clase both inconsistent in their shared closer role lately, Maton's strong pitching of late could lead to more late-inning work going forward.
