Infielder Nick Maton’s brother is pitcher Phil Maton. He debuted in the majors with the San Diego Padres in 2017 and quickly established himself as a middle reliever, appearing in 46 games in 2017 and 45 games in 2018, with ERAs of 4.19 and 4.37, respectively.
He had a rough start to 2019, with an ERA of 7.77 in 21 games, and was traded to the Cleveland Indians on July 12th in exchange for international bonus slot money, indicating that he was viewed as a rather generic player at the time.
Having the Indians, he fared much better the rest of the season, with an ERA of 2.92 in 9 games.
He pitched in 23 games during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, but his numbers were nearly identical to his first two seasons with the Padres: few decisions, a 4.57 ERA, and a higher-than-average strikeout percentage.
That year, he made his first playoff appearance, pitching 3 1/3 innings in two games as the Indians were swept by the New York Yankees in the Wild Card Series.
In 2021, he was pitching well – 2-0, 4.57 in 38 games – when he was sent to the Houston Astros on July 30th in one of the year’s less-publicized trade deadline trades.
