Manager Dave Roberts said that Maeda will likely pitch an inning in relief Friday or Saturday against the Marlins before slotting back into the rotation Tuesday against the Angels, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Maeda tossed two scoreless, no-hit innings in his start in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Phillies, with his early departure coming as the result of a lengthy rain delay. Since he only tossed 35 pitches in the outing, Maeda won't need more than a day or two before being ready to contribute out of the bullpen. The relief appearance will essentially be the equivalent of a normal between-starts side session for the 31-year-old, who shouldn't face any strict workload limits when he rejoins the rotation next week.
Maeda allowed no hits and two walks while striking out three across two scoreless innings Wednesday against the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision.
Maeda uncharacteristically struggled with his control in his rain-shortened effort Wednesday. He handed out two free passes in as many innings and got just 19 of his 35 pitches across the plate for strikes. Maeda is currently scheduled to draw his next start Tuesday against the Angels.
Maeda (7-6) gave up three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out seven in 5.2 innings to take the loss Friday in Boston.
He gave up a couple home runs but was still just one out away from notching a quality start in a very difficult matchup. Eduardo Rodriguez dominated for Boston, so Maeda was saddled with the loss. His next start comes Wednesday in Philadelphia.
Maeda (7-5) took the loss Saturday, giving up three runs on four hits and a walk over 7.2 innings while striking out six as the Dodgers were downed 3-1 by the Padres.
The right-hander was locked in a scoreless pitcher's duel with rookie Chris Paddack through six innings, but Maeda then served up homers to Hunter Renfroe in the seventh and Manuel Margot in the eighth. Maeda has now lost three straight decisions, with his last win coming May 31, and he'll carry a 3.76 ERA and 94:31 K:BB through 95.2 innings into the All-Star break.
Maeda allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five over 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday.
Maeda cruised through the first four innings, though he ran into trouble in the bottom of the fifth, surrendering two runs before getting yanked. The 31-year-old right-hander has given up just two runs in each of his last three starts, though he was unable to work deep into the ballgame Sunday afternoon. Maeda now owns a 3.78 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 88 strikeouts across 88 frames.
Maeda will start Sunday against the Rockies, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
The Dodgers want to keep Clayton Kershaw on normal rest for his next start, so he'll get the ball Saturday while Maeda starts Sunday's series finale. Maeda will be well rested, as his last outing came Sunday. In 15 starts this season, the 31-year-old Maeda owns a 3.76 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 83:28 K:BBB in 83.2 innings.
Maeda did not factor into the decision against Colorado on Sunday, giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six.
Pitching on extra rest after taking a line drive to his right hand in his last start, Maeda showed no lingering ill effects, limiting the Rockies to two runs and needing only 86 pitches to get through seven innings. In 15 starts this season, the 31-year-old has posted a 3.76 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 83:28 K:BB in 83.2 innings. He'll head to Colorado to again square off against the Rockies on Friday in his next scheduled start.
Maeda (hand) is listed as the Dodgers' probable starter for Sunday's game against the Rockies.
The report confirms that the comebacker that Maeda took to his right hand in his previous start Monday against the Giants isn't viewed as a concern. The Dodgers built in an extra day of rest for Maeda as a precaution, but unless the team suggests otherwise, the 31-year-old isn't expected to face any restrictions in his return to the mound. Maeda has posted a 4.62 ERA over his last five outings, but a 0.87 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB over 25.1 innings during that span suggest that he's pitched better than his ERA indicates.
Maeda (wrist) will get an extra day of rest before his next start, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Maeda took a comebacker off the wrist in the fourth inning of the Dodgers' loss to the Giants on Monday, and although he stayed in the game and X-rays came back negative, manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday the right-hander will get one extra day of rest to make sure he's fully recovered. This would push Maeda's next start to Sunday against the Rockies, with Julio Urias the likely candidate to make a spot start in his absence Saturday.
X-rays on Maeda's right hand returned negative after he was sent in for testing following his departure from Monday's 3-2 loss to the Giants, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Though Maeda limited the opposition to two runs over five innings and struck out four, it was hardly a smooth outing for the right-hander. Maeda needed 54 pitches to cover the first two innings and absorbed a comebacker off his hand in the fourth inning, which manager Dave Roberts said caused Maeda's hand to stiffen up. Maeda wasn't forced to exit because of the issue and is expected to be fine for his next start, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Dodgers changed course and elected to give him an extra day off between turns. With Los Angeles in the midst of a stretch of 18 games in 18 days, Roberts recently suggested that bullpen arms Julio Urias or Ross Stripling could make a spot start to afford the rotation some additional rest.
Maeda (7-4) took the loss against the Giants on Monday, giving up two earned runs on three hits over five innings, striking out four and walking two in a 3-2 defeat for the Dodgers.
The right-hander bounced back with a nice start after getting tagged for five earned in 4.2 innings by the Angels in his last outing, but the Dodgers offense struggled to solve Tyler Beede and Maeda would ultimately take his fourth loss of the season. He had a 5.20 ERA following a six-run blowup against the Cubs on April 23, but Maeda has turned it around since then and now sports a 3.87 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and a 77:26 K:BB through 76.2 innings.
Maeda (7-3) took the loss against the Angels on Tuesday, pitching 4.1 innings and giving up five runs on three hits and three walks while striking out four.
All of the damage against Maeda came with two outs in the first inning, when the Angels connected for a pair of home runs sandwiched around a hit batsman, a walk and a single. Though Maeda would not allow another hit for the remainder of his outing, the Dodgers were unable to muster enough offense to get him off the hook. The loss put an end to the 31-year-old's four-decision win streak, though he still holds a solid 7-3 record and respectable 3.89 ERA on the season. Maeda will face the Giants on Monday in his next scheduled start.
Maeda allowed one run on two hits with seven strikeouts and one walk across five innings during a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
The right-hander was pretty exceptional, as he permitted only three hitters to reach base. He also only needed 70 pitches to get through five frames, but manager Dave Roberts still elected to go to his bullpen in the sixth. This broke Maeda's string of four consecutive starts where he earned a victory. Still, he's 7-2 with a 3.48 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 2.09 batting average against and 69 strikeouts in 67.1 innings. Maeda will make his next start Tuesday at the Angels.
Maeda (7-2) pitched six innings Friday, allowing two runs on three hits and striking out six to earn the win in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Phillies.
Maeda won his fourth straight start with another strong outing, as he's now allowed only five runs over his last 23.2 innings while striking out 28 in that span. For the year, Maeda has a 3.61 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 62.1 innings. He'll look to keep the win streak rolling versus the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Maeda (6-2) yielded three runs on five hits and struck out four over five innings Sunday in a win against the Pirates.
Maeda gave up a two-run homer in the second inning and a solo shot in the fifth, but he'd come out of the ballgame with a one-run lead. He needed 81 pitches (57 strikes) to retire the first 15 batters of the contest. The 31-year-old was placed on the shelf May 17 due to a left adductor contusion, but he was able to return after missing just one start. The right-hander owns a 3.67 ERA with 56 punchouts over 56.1 innings following Sunday's outing.
The Dodgers activated Maeda (thigh) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Pirates, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Maeda missed just one turn through the rotation as a result of the thigh issue, with multiple off days enabling the Dodgers to get by with four starters for the past week and a half. The right-hander isn't expected to have any specific limitations with his pitch count in his return to action, though it's possible the Dodgers are more conservative than usual with Maeda since he'll be coming off an injury.
Maeda (thigh) will come off the injured list to start Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports.
This was expected, assuming Maeda made it through Wednesday's aggressive bullpen session OK, and he did. He may not throw 100 pitches in his first start back from the injured list, but he threw 6.2 innings May 15, so there shouldn't be significant restrictions.
Maeda (thigh) is expected to throw "an aggressive bullpen" session either Tuesday or Wednesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Maeda was sent to the 10-day injured list Friday due to a left adductor contusion, though he's only expected to miss one turn through the rotation. If his side session goes well, the right-hander should return from the shelf in time to make a start May 26 against Pittsburgh.
Maeda was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left adductor contusion Friday.
Maeda suffered the injury when he fouled a pitch off his leg during an at-bat Wednesday. The injury does not appear to be serious, and he's only expected to miss one turn through the rotation. The Dodgers have off days both Monday and Thursday, so they won't be required to use a spot starter.
Maeda will head to the 10-day injured list after hitting a foul ball off his thigh during an at-bat Wednesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
The Dodgers are reportedly placing Maeda on the injured list as a precaution, so he shouldn't be forced to miss more than one turn through the rotation. Los Angeles has yet to announce who will start in the right-hander's place Wednesday against Tampa Bay.
