Notes 
 Mahle's solid 2020 season (3.59 ERA, 1.15 WHIP) will probably slip under the radar, but there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic about him with a guaranteed spot in the Reds rotation. His strikeout rate jumped to 30% on the back of a 4.4% increase in his swinging strike rate, and he had just a .188 expected batting average against, top 10% in the league. The biggest change for Mahle was that he brought back a slider that he had shelved entirely in 2019, and batters hit just .180 against the pitch with a .249 wOBA. He could do well to cut down on his walks a bit, but still, as a fifth starter for your fantasy team, there's plenty of potential for profit.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 
 Tyler Mahle broke out in 2020, posting a 3.59 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 60 strikeouts across 47 2/3 innings. He added a slider to his pitch repertoire and upped his strike percentage to 29.6. The 26-year-old signed a one-year, $2.2 million contract with the Reds avoiding arbitration. Mahle will be a fixture in the Reds rotation and prove his breakout in 2020 was no fluke. He could be a mid-round bargain and a pitcher fantasy managers should be targeting in their upcoming drafts.
