Two-Start Pitchers: Week 14 (7/01 to 7/07), Streamer of the Week

Matt Bishop | June 30, 2019

STREAMER OF THE WEEK

Tyler Mahle, SP CIN

(33% CBS, 5% ESPN, 10% YAHOO)

2019 Season Stats:

(2-8) 4.35 ERA 1.22 WHIP 9.15 K/9 2.18 BB/9

18.5% K-BB% 1.63 HR/9

Tyler Mahle only has 214.2 innings of major league service on his resume, but he is currently experiencing a career high in strikeout rate (24.4%) and a career low walk rate (5.8%). 

While his bloated 4.35 ERA is nothing to write home about, he is currently pitching to his peripherals (4.35 ERA 4.38 FIP 3.82 xFIP) and the underlying stats may indicate he is getting a bit unlucky. 

Mahle currently has positive pVALs on 3 out of 4 of his offerings, while 2 of his pitches also carry a double digit swinging strike rate. Mahle will get both Milwaukee and Cleveland at home this week, where he is pitching to a 2.96 ERA, versus a 5.04 ERA on the road. Milwaukee and Cleveland are also the 22nd and 23rd ranked teams in baseball for total batting average on the road. He should put up some solid numbers this week.
