Greg Mahle –
Mahle, a Westminster High alum, came out of nowhere last Spring and made the roster just a week into the season. He was known for his three different arm slots which seemed to fool hitters. However after a strong start in 2016, Mahle’s ERA ballooned to over five and he was sent down to the minors and was never heard from again.
Mahle had a chance for redemption this Spring, but did not pitch effectively in Spring Training and again was sent out to Mobile (Double-A) and was then designated for assignment and later assigned to Salt Lake City.
So far Mahle is 6-4 with a 6.49 ERA pitching 34.2 innings striking out 23 batters and walking 16. Mahle just can’t seem to find the stuff that made him so effective at the beginning of 2016. He is a longshot to be called up unless he improves greatly over the next couple of months.
