Maeda gave up two runs (one earned) on six hits and two walks while fanning five across 4.1 innings Thursday against the Brewers. He didn't factor into the decision.

Maeda allowed lots of hard contact and didn't have his best stuff at times, but he still found a way to limit the damage. The Japanese veteran is looking to build on a strong 2020 campaign in which he posted a 2.70 ERA and 0.75 WHIP across 11 starts; it's hard to expect him to match that ridiculous WHIP this year, but Maeda should still deliver strong ratios and plenty of strikeouts for the Twins.
