Mahle allowed six runs on nine hits over five innings in Sunday's win over the Cubs. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.
In a game during which the Cubs and Reds combined for 10 home runs, Mahle allowed three of them, including a pair of solo shots to Kris Bryant. It was the first time he's allowed more than two runs in any outing this season. His ERA jumped to 3.23 alongside a 41:11 K:BB. Mahle is expected to start in Cleveland next weekend.
Mahle allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings but didn't factor into the decision in the Reds' extra-inning win over the Dodgers on Monday.
Mahle had another solid outing with nothing to show for it in the end after Amir Garrett allowed the Dodgers' Corey Seager to tie the game with a two-run homer in the seventh. The righty's only blemish on the evening was an RBI single by Gavin Lux in the fourth. He's opened the 2021 campaign by allowing two runs or fewer in all five starts while posting a 1.40 ERA and a 36:11 K:BB over 25.2 innings. Mahle will look to continue his solid run at home against the Cubs on Sunday.
Mahle allowed two hits and two walks while striking out nine across 6.2 scoreless innings in Wednesday's loss to Arizona. He did not factor into the decision.
Mahle cruised through the Diamondbacks lineup, allowing no extra-base hits in his scoreless effort. He also racked up 22 swinging strikes on 103 total pitches to back up his impressive nine-strikeout outing. It was also encouraging to see Mahle work deep into the game, as he managed to complete no more than five innings in any of his first three starts of the season despite showcasing the ability to prevent runs. Mahle has maintained a 1.74 ERA and 31:9 K:BB across 20.2 innings to begin the campaign and will draw his next start in a tough matchup Monday at the Dodgers.
Mahle (1-1) took the loss Wednesday versus the Giants. He allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in five innings.
Mahle pitched well, but the Reds mustered only four hits and a walk in the game. The right-hander has a 1.93 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 22:7 K:BB across 14 innings through three starts. While he's been effective on the mound, he hasn't been able to pitch past the fifth inning yet. His next start is expected to be next Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.
Mahle hurled four scoreless and hitless innings against Arizona on Friday, issuing four walks while striking out six. He did not factor in the decision.
Mahle looked dominant throughout the outing, inducing 17 swinging strikes and proving unhittable for four frames. However, he ran up his pitch count to 92 and was pulled before the start of the fifth inning. Still, there has been plenty to like about Mahle's first two starts, most notably his 15 strikeouts across nine frames. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday at San Francisco.
Mahle averaged 95.1 mph with his fastball in Saturday's win over the Cardinals, up from 93.9 mph last season. He touched as high as 98 mph in the start, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Seven of Mahle's nine strikeouts came on his fastball. Mahle said that he didn't do anything in particular to increase velocity this offseason. "(It was all) adrenaline and (my) first real game with fans," Mahle said. "A lot of stuff goes into it. (I) didn't work on my (velocity), it just kind of comes with doing all the stuff off the field, and a lot of adrenaline."
Mahle (1-0) was charged with three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks over five innings in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday. He struck out nine.
Shortstop Paul DeJong was the thorn in Mahle's side, taking the right-hander yard on two occasions. Mahle was dominant otherwise with nine swinging strikes and 21 called strikes among 84 total pitches. He helped the team to its first win of 2021 and the schedule projects favorably for him in the immediate future with road matchups in Arizona and San Francisco next on the docket.
The Reds had Mahle pitch three innings in a simulated game against their own minor leaguers Tuesday instead of in their spring training game against the Rockies, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Mahle is locked into a rotation spot this season, and there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with him physically. He struck out four of the first five batters he faced Tuesday, albeit against the Reds' minor-league hitters.
Mahle agreed to a one-year, $2.2 million contract with the Reds on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Mahle will get a nice raise coming off a breakout 2020 season in which he logged a 3.59 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 60 strikeouts in 47.2 innings. Most projection systems are bearish on his 2021 production, predicting something closer to his career 4.68 ERA and 1.40 WHIP, but if Mahle can maintain his significant gains in strikeout rate (up to 29.9 percent), he should beat those projections by quite a bit.
Mahle allowed one run on three hits and two walks over 2.1 innings in a no-decision against the Twins on Friday. He struck out four.
Mahle worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning before giving up a run on a single and a double in the third. Manager David Bell was treating this one like a postseason game and gave Mahle a quick hook in favor of Michael Lorenzen, which worked as the Reds went on to clinch their first postseason berth since 2013. Mahle ends his 2020 regular season with a 3.59 ERA , 1.15 WHIP, 60:21 K:BB and only four home runs allowed in 47.2 innings. He will almost certainly transition to the bullpen for the playoffs, but Mahle's future as a major-league starting pitcher is looking bright at the moment.
Mahle (2-2) allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out eight over 5.2 innings in a win over the White Sox on Friday.
Mahle did a good job to quiet the American League's second-ranked scoring offense, and in turn extended the Reds' winning streak to six games. He ran into some major trouble in the sixth, loading the bases with nobody out, but with the help of Tejay Antone, Mahle was able to limit the damage to one run. The 25-year-old righty now has a 3.97 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 56:19 K:BB in 45.1 innings this year. He gets one more start during the regular season, which lines up for Wednesday against the Brewers, though the Reds could always shift some guys around over the final week.
Mahle allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out three over 2.2 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Sunday.
Mahle issued early walks in each of the first three innings and manager David Bell did not have the stomach for it, as he lifted the right-hander after 77 pitches. It was a departure from what has been the norm for Mahle this season; he has generally displayed good control and command, especially lately, with a 0.93 WHIP and 2.7 BB/9 in his last four appearances entering play Sunday. Wins have been hard to come by on this team, but Mahle's done enough to remain in a starting role the rest of the season. He will look to be more efficient against the White Sox at home next weekend.
Mahle (1-2) allowed three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out 10 over seven innings in a loss to the Cubs on Tuesday.
The right-hander got 19 called strikes and 22 swinging strikes on 109 pitches en route to his second double-digit strikeout performance in his last three starts. Cincinnati's offense has failed to support its starters this season, Mahle included; he has a losing record despite a 3.89 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 45:13 K:BB and .182 BAA in 37 innings. At least Mahle seems to be solidifying his spot in the rotation, and assuming he sticks on four days' rest, he will next start Sunday in St. Louis.
Mahle is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Cubs, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Mahle will start the first game of the team's series against the Cubs. He's provided strong length in both of his past two turns through the rotation, working a combined 13.2 innings while surrendering five earned runs. Overall, he's maintained a 3.90 ERA and 1.07 WHIP while working both in the rotation and bullpen this season.
Mahle gave up three runs on four hits and two walks over seven innings during Wednesday's win over the Cardinals. He had three strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The right-hander was unable to replicate the 11 strikeouts from he previous start, but he held St. Louis in check besides a pair of solo homers from Brad Miller and Yadier Molina. Mahle lines up to face the Cubs next week with a 3.90 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 35:12 K:BB across 30 innings.
Mahle (1-1) allowed two runs on two hits -- both home runs -- over 6.2 innings in a win over the Cubs on Friday. He struck out 11 and walked two.
After allowing solo homers to Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber in the first inning, Mahle was dominant the rest of the way, touching 97 mph with his fastball and flashing a nasty splitter. In total, Mahle racked up 20 called strikes and 19 swinging strikes on 106 pitches. The right-hander has bounced between the rotation and bullpen early on this season, but it's difficult to see him moving back to relief anytime soon with the way he's pitching (3.91 ERA, 32:10 K:BB), especially considering the Reds have a couple doubleheaders in the next week. A home matchup against the Cardinals is next on the docket.
Mahle is scheduled to start Friday against the Cubs, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Mahle has made four appearances for the Reds this season, compiling a 4.41 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 21:8 K:BB across 16.1 innings during those outings. With Mahle set to start Friday's series opener, Trevor Bauer will get the ball for one of the team's two games Saturday.
Mahle (0-1) allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five to take the loss Sunday against the Cardinals.
Mahle surrendered the majority of the damage against him on a two-run home run by Harrison Bader in the second inning. He was solid otherwise, generating 11 swinging strikes on 71 total pitches and holding the Cardinals to only one additional extra-base hit. Mahle last pitched Aug. 12 prior to this appearance, which limited the length he was able to work. He's had an inconsistent role with the club to this point, but he should be in line to draw another start for the team's doubleheader Saturday against the Cubs.
Mahle will pick up another start Sunday in St. Louis, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
With the Reds playing a doubleheader on Wednesday, the Reds had a need for a sixth starter. Mahle last pitched on August 12, essentially missing a turn by the time he pitches again on Sunday, so he might not be able to pitch much more than three-to-four innings.
Mahle gave up three runs on two hits and three walks while striking out six over 3.1 innings out of the bullpen in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Royals.
Wade Miley (groin) got the start in his return from the IL, but Miley only threw 44 pitches and Mark Sheldon of MLB.com suggests the lefty may be hurt again. Mahle was making a case to remain a starter with his performance during Miley's absence, and his return to the bullpen could be short lived whether Miley is indeed injured or not. Mahle now has a 3.38 ERA and 16:6 K:BB, with only one home run allowed in 13.1 innings.
