Debut Details
April 13, in a 5-1 win over the Athletics.

He threw just eight pitches, five for strikes.

Player Notes
Mahle came close to making the Angels bullpen out of spring training before losing out to Cam Bedrosian for the final slot right before camp broke. He didn’t have to wait long to come back, though. Called up after having thrown just 1.2 innings at Salt Lake, Mahle fast-tracked to the big leagues after leading the Angels organization in saves in 2015. The former Gaucho arrives in the bigs already considered one of the club’s most promising left-handed relief prospects (always a good thing to be). Mahle made his pro debut in 2014 with a combined 2.65 ERA between Rookie League Orem and Burlington, striking out 49 in 37.1 IP over 23 games. In addition, his younger-by-a-year brother Tyler — a right-handed pitcher — is an up-and-coming prospect in the Cincinnati system who posted a 13-8 record and 2.43 ERA at Dayton (Class A) last summer.

2080 Notes
Bulldog on the bump. Comes right at hitters with variety of stuff. Alters arm slot to give different looks; up tempo motion comes with deception out of arm slot variance and some violence/quick arm. True sidearm at his lowest with a tilted spine that brings release close to submarine. Fastball ranges from middle 80s to low 90s depending on slot. Two-seamer can bleed into changeup velocities with changeup showing deeper fade — good swing-and-miss offering. Slider ranges from shorter version in middle 80s to deeper, tilted offering in the upper-70s to low-80s. Does well keeping hitters off balance and missing bats while living in and around zone. Fastball can be straight and hittable over the white; can also get into trouble hanging his slider.
