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 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.
