Phillies Trade Targets: RHP Tyler Mahle (2023)


Phillies Trade Targets: RHP Tyler Mahle

The 2022 MLB trade deadline is less than a month away and it is time to start looking at potential trade candidates for the Philadelphia Phillies. Starting pitching is one of the most pressing needs at the moment with Zach Eflin on the IL after a setback with his knee. Bailey Falter is manning down one of the rotation spots. He hasn't imploded and has given the Phillies 4-5 innings while allowing around 3-4 earned runs. It could definitely be worse but an upgrade is needed ASAP. The Phillies may need to address this need sooner rather than later as their current plan is not sustainable. Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Tyler Mahle might be an option.

What's up guys hunterdull here with another trade video today today, we're looking at red's pitcher, tyler malley, 27 year old, right-handed pitcher and I'm, not gonna lie when I first came across him, I wasn't super high on him and I'm, not saying I am now.

But I do see kind of the reasoning for it and I'm.

Not here to convince you guys why we should go after him, I'm just saying why it might not be the worst option.

If we do whiff on some of the star pitchers, which I don't think will be in on many of the star pitchers.

Someone like maui might make sense.

First off let's start with it.

Like I said, he's, 27, arbitration next year and then he's a free agent in 2024 he's, making 5.2 million right now.

In terms of contract, very similar to brad keller.

Brad keller is 26 arbitration in 2023 and then he's a free agent in 2024 and he's making 4.8 million.

So a marginal difference there just looking at him by the numbers kind of similar production.

I don't want to say the same, but he started 18 games, 98.

And a third and he's pitched, four and seven on the year with a four four eight era, 1.27, whip 107, strikeouts, 3.79, fip, 232, batting average against in a 2.1 war.

So obviously fip is something we need to talk about because it's a big difference from his era.

But first I want to talk about his pitch arsenal, 94 mile an hour.

Fastball 86 mile an hour.

Splitter 84 mile an hour, slider and 86 mile an hour cutter.

So he really loves to challenge hitters with his fastball, which obviously is a risky strategy.

It's one that has worked out well for him over the past few seasons.

But he does tend to miss over the heart of the plate rather than off the plate with it, which worries me it's going to lead to a lot of a lot of long fly balls.

A lot of long line drives when he does command it.

Well, it can be straight paint, which is kind of the key.

You know, there's there's, definitely been some really really good days where he's commanded it better than most some days where he's commanded it.

Well enough, which I think is kind of what we'll get come down to at the bottom line.

And 73 of his 107 strikeouts have come off of that as the strikeout pitch now going to his splitter works great off of the fastball nice arm side fade generally results in contact for outs, he's, not going to get a ton of strikeouts with it.

He does have an 83 mile an hour exit velo on it very low can get sent to the gaps have elevated a bit too much, though which I found is kind of struggle for him is, you know, obviously kind of being a similar to a change up if it hangs a little bit too much, it catches too much of the zone 434 slugging against something he's got to clean up slider usage has been down this year after being his go-to, pitch behind the fastball, almost every year.

Prior and it's been hit pretty well.

So I'm glad the usage has been down it's just hanging a bit too much it's, not a very good slider to be honest, 298, batting average against.

It is generating a 33.4 with rate.

So it's been nice to mix in here and there.

And if he can get it going a little bit more, it can probably be an effective pitch for him, but it just hasn't been this year.

And then as for the cutter, it doesn't fall out of hitters.

It doesn't cut very much, not as much as you'd like it to at least I'm sure, if I was up there swinging it would cut a lot, but not as much as other pitchers it's, a nice fourth pitch with some slight movement to mix it.

Now, I mean he'll get some outs on it.

Occasionally now going to kind of the numbers has always had struggles with walks 3.57 per 9 this year.

He throws 17.82 pitches per inning he's, just not able to put away guys quick I'm surprised how many innings he generally goes, but point being.

He he really limits himself, because of how many how many pitches he has to waste and has averaged under three walks per inning.

Just once in his career, which was a few years ago.

I believe that was 2019.

It has never averaged below 17 pitches per inning.

Something to keep an eye on, he really works the count a little bit too much.

And I will say this guys as far as I was kind of hinting at this earlier.

He had a rough start to the season, and he had a difficult four-inning eight-run outing versus chicago.

In may since that start though he's really been picking things up he's heating up at the right time in his last eight starts he's thrown 51.

And a third he is two and two with a 281 era, 1.08 whip 210, batting average against 373 fip and 57 strikeout.

So you can see that fip is kind of around the same range.

It was expected that he was going to start to turn things around a little bit I'm, not sure if we can expect this from him consistently he did have a really really solid season last year, the best of his career I believe he had a 375 era.

So if we can get something similar to that, I am I'm totally okay with it.

He did have a complete game shutout versus the diamondbacks with 12 k's during that span.

Yes, the diamondbacks.

But still look, he took advantage and had one of his best starts of his career.

And he also had six quality starts in that span.

So six of his eight last eight starts within quality starts again, he's hitting his stride at the right time, I'm, probably going to say, no, just based on how iffy his command can be.

I think I think talking about it a little bit more kind of convinced me more into it, but I'm still going to stick to my guns and say, probably not just because the number of walks and extra base hits.

He allows 35 extra basis this year, it's, not a good combo.

And again, for a guy who kind of relies on his fastball command and you're, not sure what that's going to look like from game to game that worries me down the stretch in the race to the post season.

I think there's better options on the market that are rentals that would make more sense on the positive side of it.

You have him in 2023 too that's.

A plus, if he goes into his best years while hitting his stride on the other side, if he doesn't build off of that recent momentum and kind of reverse back to what he was doing earlier this year, you're stuck with him in 2023.

So not my preference, but I won't be mad if he's cheap, I think he's much better than the numbers show this year.

You know, I think he had some some really really rough starts early in the year.

But I think he's gotten a lot better as the year is going on.

And that encourages me so I'm, not fully against it.

I think he kind of be similar to a zac eflin, which is kind of, you know, you're kind of trying to replace that or get better.

Um, again, I think we could get better.

I know the starting pitching market isn't as as amazing this year.

But I do think there's some guys out there.

We might be able to land that would probably probably still be like fairly fairly reasonable price, um and could pitch a little bit better than mali.

But we'll see I'm, not opposed to it.

Let me know your guys thoughts, I know I've seen this in a lot of philly circles opinions on both sides.

So I'm interested to hear what you guys have to say.

Thank you.

All for watching god, bless go, phil's ring, the bell, and we will see you later, peace.
