Kenta Maeda tosses bullpen session on Tuesday

Kenta Maeda threw a bullpen session during his rehabilitation from elbow surgery on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda threw his 10th bullpen session, tossing 30 fastball pitches, his highest total since he began his rehabilitation from an elbow injury. Maeda underwent a modified Tommy John surgery in September 2021 and had an initial timeline of 9-12 months of recovery with the hope that he can return before the end of the 2022 season but there is currently no solid timeline.
