Kenta Maeda goes four innings in return from IL

Minnesota Twins right-hander Kenta Maeda allowed one run over four innings in a 4-3 loss to Seattle on Monday. Maeda struck out seven and walked three in the start.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda wound up with a no-decision in his first start since landing on the injured list with a groin injury. He now has a 2-2 record, 5.01 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 46 strikeouts in 46 2/3 innings of work. Maeda is slated to take on the Rangers next time through the rotation.

Kenta Maeda (arm) activated from the 10-day IL Monday

The Twins activated pitcher Kenta Maeda (arm) from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday’s game against the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda will rejoin the Twins after being placed on the 10-day IL with a right abductor strain on May 23. He's mostly struggled this season, owning a 5.27 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and an 80:10 K: BB across 42 2/3 innings. Fantasy managers can safely insert Maeda back into their starting lineups.

Kenta Maeda slated to start Monday against the Mariners

Kenta Maeda will start for the Twins on Monday against the Mariners, according to Rocco Baldelli.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda has been on the shelf with a minor groin strain and arm soreness, but had a successful rehab start on Wednesday in Triple-A during which he looked strong. Fantasy managers should start Maeda right away given the soft matchup with Seattle and his two-start week. But he'll likely be on a pitch count for his first start, given that he threw only four innings in his rehab appearance.

Kenta Maeda (groin) to make rehab start on Wednesday

Kenta Maeda has been out since May 23, but after a stint on the IL is set to make a rehab start for Minnesota's Triple-A affiliate on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

The hope is that this time away from baseball will help Maeda reset and get back to the elite pitcher we saw in late 2019 and all of 2020. Maeda currently has a 5.27 ERA with 39 strikeouts across 42.2 innings pitched in 2021.

Kenta Maeda (groin) lands on the 10-day IL

The Twins placed pitcher Kenta Maeda (groin) on the 10-day injured list Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda is still experiencing groin tightness and was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday. He threw 73 pitches before exiting Saturday’s start early due to groin tightness. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said Maeda is dealing with a groin strain. Maeda will miss at least the next ten days. Randy Dobnak is expected to enter the rotation while Maeda is sidelined. The Twin recalled Nick Gordon in a corresponding move.
