Kenta Maeda signs with the Tigers

Free agent SP Kenta Maeda has agreed to a two-year, $24 million deal with the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda will remain in the AL Central as he moves on from the Twins and heads to the Tigers. The 35-year-old veteran posted a 4.23 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP in 104 1/3 innings last season. This will be his second season on the mound since having Tommy John surgery and the Tigers are hoping for a bounce back season from Maeda in their rotation.
