  • Reds' Luke Maile: Swipes first bag

    Maile went 1-for-3 with a steal in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Yankees.

    It was the first steal since 2019 for Maile, who's started three of the Reds' last four games behind the plate, with Tyler Stephenson getting more time at DH. The 32-year-old Maile has made the most of his expanded role, going 4-for-10 with two homers and four RBI in that span. While it's still hard to envision Maile becoming a regular fantasy option, he's gotten off to a nice start this season, slashing .286/.348/.548 with five RBI and six runs scored through 46 plate appearances.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Two hits, homer Wednesday

    Maile went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies.

    Maile extended Cincinnati's lead to 2-0 with an RBI double in the second inning. He'd add a home run, his second of the season, off Austin Gomber in the fifth. It was a solid showing from Maile in a rare start -- he's typically the Reds' third catching option behind Tyler Stephenson and Curt Casali. The veteran backstop is now slashing a solid .278/.333/.500 through 39 plate appearances this season.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Will make Opening Day roster

    The Reds plan to carry three catchers this year, with starter Tyler Stephenson getting many of his starts at first base and DH, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Maile drew raves from the Reds pitchers and coaching staff for his ability to call a game, so it wouldn't be a shock if he's called upon to start when one of their many young pitchers are on the mound. With Stepheson projected to start only four of every 10 games behind the plate, there will be plenty of work for Maile and Curt Casali.

  • Reds' Luke Maile: Signs with Reds

    Maile signed a one-year deal with the Reds on Monday.

    Maile slashed .221/.301/.326 through 206 plate appearances last season for Cleveland, and found a decent amount of success against left-handed pitching (.300 AVG, 8 RBI). Tyler Stephenson will likely remain Cincinnati's primary option behind the plate, but Maile could still see a good chunk of playing time in 2023 as a backup.

  • Luke Maile: Non-tendered by Cleveland

    The Guardians declined to tender Maile a contract for 2023, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Maile has bounced around between Tampa Bay, Toronto, Milwaukee and Cleveland so far in his big-league career. He provides quality defense behind the plate but packs little punch with the bat, and his pitch framing was poor last year according to Statcast.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Goes yard Monday

    Maile went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 11-4 win over the Twins.

    Maile sparked the Guardians' four-run rally in the eighth inning with a solo shot. The catcher has gone 4-for-25 (.160) across 11 games in September, though he's only logged an at-bat in eight of those contests. He's now slashing .221/.301/.337 with three homers, 16 RBI, 18 runs scored and 10 doubles through 186 plate appearances as the backup to Austin Hedges.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Continues hot August

    Maile went 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored in Wednesday's 7-0 win over San Diego.

    Maile tallied an RBI single off lefty starter Blake Snell with one out in the fourth to put Cleveland up 4-0. The catcher has been swinging a hot bat in August with a .394 average and 1.065 OPS over 33 at-bats in 10 games. Furthermore, the 31-year-old has eight RBI during that span and at least one hit in nine of those contests.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Homers in nightcap

    Maile went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in a 7-5 win over the Tigers in the second game of Monday's doubleheader.

    Maile didn't have any homers in the first four months of the season, but he's now hit two in his last four contests. The 31-year-old backup catcher has actually done well lately, going 10-for-23 (.435) during his seven-game hitting streak. For the season, he's up to a .235/.326/.361 slash line with two long balls, 13 RBI, 15 runs scored and nine doubles through 138 plate appearances. It's still unlikely he unseats Austin Hedges for the starting role behind the dish in Cleveland.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Blasts first home run of 2022

    Maile went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk during Sunday's 1-0 win over the Astros.

    The Guardians were unable to generate much offensive production during Sunday's matchup, but Maile plated the team's only run with his solo blast in the bottom of the fifth inning. The 31-year-old's playing time has remained sporadic recently, but he's gone 5-for-9 with a homer, a double, four RBI and a run over his last three games.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Plates two Tuesday

    Maile went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Maile was the only Guardian with multiple hits in the contest. He knocked in two of their three runs with a second-inning single and a sixth-inning double. The catcher hit a meager .219 in 15 games in July, and he's likely to remain in a backup role to Austin Hedges over the final two months of the campaign. Maile has a .206/.308/.294 slash line with no home runs, nine doubles, eight RBI and 15 runs scored in 120 plate appearances this year.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Moves into No. 2 role

    Maile is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

    On the bench for the third time in four games, Maile is set to serve as the Guardians' No. 2 catcher moving forward after top backstop Austin Hedges was reinstated from the 7-day concussion injured list Friday.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Sitting Wednesday

    Maile is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    Maile and Sandy Leon have now alternated turns behind the plate for seven straight contests, and the two are expected to work in a timeshare at catcher until No. 1 backstop Austin Hedges (concussion) is ready to return from the 7-day injured list. In Tuesday's 11-4 loss, Maile went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Takes seat Sunday

    Maile is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.

    Maile was behind the plate for the second game of Saturday's twin bill, so he'll get a breather due to the quick turnaround for Sunday's series finale, which begins at 1:40 p.m. ET. Sandy Leon will catch for starting pitcher Triston McKenzie on Sunday, and the two backstops should continue to split work until Austin Hedges (concussion) returns from the 7-day injured list.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Breather Thursday

    Maile is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale versus the Twins.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Takes over as No. 1 catcher

    Maile is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Twins.

    Though Sandy Leon will be behind the plate for the front end of the twin bill, Maile looks poised to operate as Cleveland's No. 1 catcher this week after Austin Hedges (concussion) was placed on the 7-day injured list Tuesday. Maile had already started both of the Guardians' last two games, going hitless in both contests.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Pitiful hitting in June

    Maile has gone 1-for-20 (.050) in nine games in June.

    Maile's playing time is already fairly limited to begin with, and his recent performances have inspired no confidence. The 31-year-old has a .213/.304/.319 slash line with five RBI, eight runs scored and a 7:14 BB:K through 56 plate appearances this season. Austin Hedges will see most of the time behind the dish, while Maile will step in for starts once or twice a week.

  • Guardians' Luke Maile: Perfect at plate Monday

    Maile went 3-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored in Monday's 6-1 win over the Astros.

    Maile's first multi-hit game this season was a big one in his first game action since May 17. The catcher had previously recorded four double in his first seven games, but all three of his hits Monday were singles. He's still not seeing much playing time, as Austin Hedges has received the vast majority of the starts behind the dish.
