Twins Land Starter Kenta Maeda in Three Team Deal
According to several reports this morning, the Minnesota Twins have acquired starting pitcher Kenta Maeda from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In exchange, Minnesota sends pitching prospect Brusdar Graterol to Boston as part of a three team deal.
The 31 year-old Maeda, who was 10-8 in 2019 with a 4.04 ERA, is expected to join Jose Berrios, Jake Odorizzi, and a couple of yet-to-be-named others in the Twins starting rotation.
As Minnesota's #3 prospect (and 83rd overall in MLB), Brusdar Graterol is considered by some to be a heavy price to pay -- but the Twins seem to be banking on a 'win now' mentality.
The trade is part of a three team deal that also saw Mookie Betts and David Price head from the Red Sox to the Dodgers.
