Dodgers' Kenta Maeda: Strikes out seven Rockies
Maeda emerged with a solid line in a treacherous matchup against the Rockies at Coors Field, missing out on a quality start by two-thirds of an inning. He was in line for a win when he departed the contest in the sixth inning, but the Rockies got to reliever Zac Rosscup for two runs, forcing Maeda to settle for the no-decision. The 30-year-old has managed to post a useful fantasy campaign despite the occasional hiccup, with a 3.80 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 130 strikeouts in 109 innings. It's possible he heads to the bullpen in the near future with Alex Wood (hamstring) nearing a return, although that move wouldn't necessarily sink Maeda's fantasy value as he could emerge as a top replacement option for Kenley Jansen (irregular heartbeat).
