Maeda should be the rare pitcher who benefits from a move to the American League. The Dodgers have moved him back and forth from the bullpen to the starting rotation to manipulate his innings and avoid paying him bonuses for years. Now, he should stick in the Twins' rotation, and approach the 175 innings he threw in 2016. Given that he had the highest swinging strike rate (14.6%) and chase rate (34.8%) of his career last year and will be moving to a division that saw three of the other four teams rank in the bottom seven in runs scored in 2019, consider the needle on Maeda moving up.

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.
