Dodgers' Kenta Maeda: Earns save No. 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maeda struck out one in a scoreless two-out save against the Rockies on Friday. He issued no hits and no walks.

Maeda came into the ninth inning with a two-run lead and got DJ LeMahieu to fly out before striking out Nolan Arenado to earn his second save of the year. Closer Kenley Jansen (chest) is ruled out for the series against the Rockies, so save opportunities fall to Kenta Maeda and Ryan Madson for the time being. With Madson having pitched in three of the last four games, it made sense for the ball to be given to the more rested Maeda.

Dodgers' Kenta Maeda: To share closing duties over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maeda and Ryan Madson figure to be top candidates to close games during the Dodgers' weekend series against Colorado, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Kenley Jansen (chest) didn't travel with the team to Colorado as a precaution, so Los Angeles will adopt a closer-by-committee approach against the Rockies with Madson and Maeda first in line for save opportunities, although Madison is likely unavailable Friday after pitching Sunday, Monday and Wednesday.

Dodgers' Kenta Maeda: Claims win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maeda was the pitcher of record in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks after striking out two in a perfect eighth inning.

After being bumped from the rotation in mid-August, Maeda immediately emerged as a top option to close for the Dodgers while Kenley Jansen was sidelined with an irregular heartbeat. Jansen was reinstated from the disabled list earlier than anticipated and has since reclaimed closing duties, but Maeda looks like he may continue to fill in important role in the bullpen as one of manager Dave Roberts' most-trusted setup arms. Since transitioning to relief, Maeda has given up two runs over six innings while striking out nine and recording a win and a save.

Dodgers' Kenta Maeda: Top option to close
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts stated there's a good chance Maeda will be called upon for the ninth inning in a save situation Friday against the Mariners, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Maeda suffered a loss in his first appearance out of the bullpen since transitioning from the rotation, as he was deployed in the ninth inning of Tuesday's contest against the Giants and gave up a run on three base knocks. Despite this, Roberts' confidence in Maeda amid tight ballgames doesn't seem to have wavered -- he'll turn right back to him in the absence of Kenley Jansen (irregular heartbeat).

Dodgers' Kenta Maeda: Falters in ninth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maeda was charged with a loss after giving up a run on three hits while striking out one over an inning against the Giants on Tuesday.

Scott Alexander had faltered recently in crucial late-inning situations, so manager Dave Roberts turned to Maeda in the ninth inning of a tie game at home, a scenario that is usually reserved for a team's closer. The move doesn't confirm that the converted starter will close out games going forward, especially considering he was unable to get the job done. That said, it does show Roberts' willingness to use Maeda in late-inning situations while Kenley Jansen (chest) mends on the disabled list.
