Kenta Maeda gets roughed up again; allows four home runs

Kenta Maeda allowed nine hits (four home runs), six earned runs, walked one, and struck out five in five innings Saturday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 52-of-83 pitches were thrown for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

Maeda is now sporting an 8.05 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and has allowed seven home runs in 19 innings. While it's been an ugly start to the season for Maeda, there are some silver linings. The xFIP is 3.90, he's still striking out a batter per inning, the walk rate is the same as last year, and the swinging strike rate has actually increased, from 11.6% to 14%. The main culprit seems to be that he's allowing way more fly balls this year, with many of those turning into home runs. He's an intriguing buy-low option, as the cost to acquire should be very low.
