Maeda (3-2) allowed six earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five across four innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Cubs.
Maeda was hit hard early, allowing four earned runs in his first inning of work and all six of his earned runs in the first two frames. It's been an up-and-down campaign for him already, as this was his second start having allowed five or more earned runs. However, across his other three starts he's allowed just five earned runs in 18.1 innings.
Maeda is expected to make his next start April 23 in the Dodgers' series opener against the Cubs at Wrigley Field, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
After limiting the Reds to one run over 6.2 innings in Tuesday's win, Maeda looked on track to receive his second start of the week Sunday in Milwaukee. Instead, Maeda is now set to receive two extra days of rest between outings, as the Dodgers will add the injured Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin) back into the rotation Saturday before breaking for an off-day Monday. While it may be a frustrating development for fantasy managers who planned on Maeda getting a two step this week, they can at least take solace in the fact that the right-hander will keep his spot in the rotation when Rich Hill (knee) likely returns from the injured list next week, plus Maeda could see two starts next week. Manager Dave Roberts already said Ross Stripling will move to the bullpen once Hill is ready to go.
Maeda (3-1) allowed one run on four hits with five strikeouts and three walks across 6.2 innings during a victory against the Reds on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old worked around traffic in every inning except the first and sixth. He yielded just one run, bouncing back from his poor start against the Cardinals last week. The best news was Maeda kept the ball in the yard, which is something he's struggled with this month. He is 3-1 with a 3.80 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in 23.2 innings across four starts this season. His next outing is scheduled to be against the Brewers on the road.
Maeda (2-1) gave up five runs on seven hits with one walk while striking out five through 5.1 innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Wednesday.
Maeda had a solid outing until giving up a single, triple and a home run in the sixth inning that ultimately ended his night. The silver lining: the right-hander only allowed one walk after giving out six free passes in his first two starts. The 30-year-old has a 4.76 ERA with 15 strikeouts through 17 innings this season. Maeda will make his next start Tuesday against the Reds.
Maeda (2-0) picked up the win after allowing one run on four hits and four walks while striking out four over five innings Friday against Colorado.
Maeda surrendered his lone run of the day in the third inning despite dealing with runners on base throughout his outing. He was pulled after the fifth inning, likely due to his high pitch count. Maeda fired 55 of 91 pitches for strikes. The 30-year-old right-hander has a 3.09 ERA and 10 punchouts through his first two starts of 2019.
