Twins to add Mahle in deal with Reds

The Twins struck a deal to acquire right-hander Tyler Mahle from the Reds ahead of Tuesday’s Trade Deadline, a source told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand.

Neither club has confirmed the deal, which will send a trio of highly regarded prospects to Cincinnati, according to Feinsand: 2B/3B Spencer Steer (Twins’ No. 7 prospect, per MLB Pipeline), left-hander Steve Hajjar (Twins’ No. 18) and corner infielder Christian Encarncion-Strand (Twins’ No. 23).

The trade comes four days after the Reds dealt right-hander Luis Castillo to the Mariners in a five-player blockbuster.

Mahle, 27, has a 4.40 ERA over 19 starts this season. However, he has been better of late, posting a 2.83 ERA in his past nine outings, including a pair of quality starts since returning from the right shoulder strain that landed him on the injured list in early July.

Oh good, they needed this one. The Twins have a bunch of non-SS infielders that hit well so they're trading from depth. Now I'd like to see one more reliever show up, or perhaps convert Chris Archer to a hard throwing setup role after his start tonight. He barely makes it through the lineup a second time anyway, so maybe never ask him to try and let him air it out a little.

Beat writers have said that Archer's pregame physical needs would make it implausible to come in as a RP. Basically he's so physically broken down that it takes him hours to get ready to throw. Otherwise, that has always seemed like the more logical approach for him.
