At T-Mobile Park
RHP
2-11, 5.11 ERA, 120 SO
Mahle is seeking a spot in the 2020 starting rotation. In his last start, he made a critical mistake by not locating an 0-2 cutter that was supposed to be more up and in for Ketel Marte. The pitch caught too much of the plate and Marte launched it for a three-run homer that led to Mahle's defeat.
