Kenta Maeda tosses four scoreless

Minnesota Twins right-hander Kenta Maeda threw four scoreless innings in a 7-6 loss to the Red Sox on Sunday. Maeda struck out six and gave up just two hits in the start.

Fantasy Impact

So far, so good for Maeda with his new club. The veteran right-hander has a 2.08 ERA through three Grapefruit League starts. Maeda is shaping up as an interesting name in fantasy leagues this season.

Kenta Maeda gives up solo shot in Twins debut

Kenta Maeda allowed a homer, a single, and a walk in the first start with his new team.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda struggled through the first inning, but went on to pitch a clean second. He's a sneaky pick in drafts. If Maeda can carry over his success from the Dodgers, he should see more opportunity in Minnesota's five-man rotation.

Kenta Maeda officially dealt to Twins

Kenta Maeda will officially be sent to the Minnesota Twins as part of the three-team 'megadeal' that will send Mookie Betts to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda is viewed as one of the more significant 'winners' of this trade, as the Twins will almost certainly deploy him as a traditional starter in their rotation. His fantasy value receives a sizable boost as a result of this transaction.

Kenta Maeda traded to the Twins as part of the Betts-Price deal

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.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda heads to Minnesota as part of a three-team trade involving the Red Sox and the Dodgers. His fantasy value takes a small hit moving from the National League to the American League, but Maeda should slot right in middle of Minnesota’s rotation. The 31-year old owned a 10-8 record with a 4.04 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 169 strikeouts across 153 2/3 innings in 2019.
