The biggest move that the Los Angeles Dodgers made during the 2022 trade deadline was adding struggling power-hitting outfielder, Joey Gallo. With the Dodgers having two struggling left-handed hitters of their own, this trade may not have made sense for most fans. This is a flier for the Dodgers, though....
Maeda (elbow) said Wednesday that he hopes to resume mound work in 2-to-3 weeks, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Maeda is currently with the Twins and has been throwing off flat ground for over a month. While the right-hander now has a timetable to resume mound work, he said Wednesday he isn't yet sure whether he'll return from the injured list prior to the end of the season.
One could understand why Kenta Maeda would have wanted to be in the Minnesota Twins dugout. He is still recovering from Tommy John surgery, hoping to return to the roster in September. With the Twins in Tampa Bay while he is rehabbing in Florida, it made sense for Maeda to stop by to say hello.
