 The Los Angeles Dodgers have traded pitcher Kenta Maeda to the Minnesota Twins as part of the Mookie Betts-David Price deal, per ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Notes 
 Maeda should be the rare pitcher who benefits from a move to the American League. The Dodgers have moved him back and forth from the bullpen to the starting rotation to manipulate his innings and avoid paying him bonuses for years. Now, he should stick in the Twins' rotation, and approach the 175 innings he threw in 2016. Given that he had the highest swinging strike rate (14.6%) and chase rate (34.8%) of his career last year and will be moving to a division that saw three of the other four teams rank in the bottom seven in runs scored in 2019, consider the needle on Maeda moving up.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Although Marquez seemed like the rare pitcher who could conquer Coors Field, 2019 showed otherwise. Marquez pitched to a 3.67 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP on the road, but a 6.26 ERA and 1.55 WHIP at home. Can he overcome the thin air this year? It's possible, but history is littered with pitchers who managed to buck the trend for one year only to fail to do so again. Marquez has the skill, but his home park make it seem unlikely he can provide quality value.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Marquez would likely be a top 25 arm if he didn't pitch half his games in Coors. However, he is still a great 4th or 5th starter for your fantasy rotation as he has nasty stuff and will be a force on the road.
