Tyler Mahle’s 2017 season is completed, Reds supervisor Bryan Worth stated earlier than Saturday’s recreation towards the Pirates. The rookie proper-hander made 4 begins on the huge-league degree, getting his first profession victory final week in St. Louis.
Proper-handers Jackson Stephens and Rookie Davis will be a part of the rotation, with lefty Amir Garrett shifting out of the rotation.
Mahle was the Reds’ greatest pitcher within the minors this season and went 1-2 with a 2.70 ERA within the huge leagues. Between the minors and the majors, he threw 164 1/three innings. He threw one hundred fifty 2/three final season.
“We’re capable of fulfill what our objectives have been, which was get him 4 begins right here on the massive-league degree and get him acclimated considerably main into subsequent season, ought to he make our membership out of spring coaching or sooner or later through the yr so it would not be his first style, that he’d been right here earlier than,” Worth stated. “He dealt with it extraordinarily properly.”
Mahle was less impressed with himself and his performance in the big leagues.
“I felt good in the aspect that I was able to compete, but at the same time, there was a bitter taste, just knowing I walked so many guys. It wasn’t me, you know?” he said. “It’s like 50-50, I was able to come up and get a win and give our team a chance to win, but then the way it happened, it was kind of not fun for me.”
Mahle walked 11 batters and struck out 14 in 20 innings with the Reds. At Double-A and Triple-A, he walked just 30 batters in 144 1/3 innings (with 138 strikeouts).
Garrett was the Reds’ best starter early in the season, but then struggled with injuries and inconsistency. He started two games since being called up in September, going 0-2 with an 8.00 ERA. He pitched just four innings in Thursday’s loss to the Cardinals.
“We’re going to spend some time working with Amir Garrett a bit closer with Mack Jenkins on the side, just to get some things, his delivery together a little bit more to a place where he can repeat it consistently,” Price said.
