In his first year of debut, Maeda recorded 9 wins and 2 losses with an ERA of 3.20 in 19 games, and made a mark in the big leagues after recording 97 wins and 67 losses with an ERA of 2.39 in 218 games (28 complete throws, 10 shutouts) over 8 seasons in Nippon Professional Baseball. entered into

And the following year, after playing four seasons with the Dodgers, including a 13-6 record with an ERA of 4.22, he wore a Minnesota uniform from the 2020 season.

Maeda felt something wrong with his body while facing Giancarlo Stanton against the New York Yankees on August 22, and went down the mound. At the time, Maeda was listed on the injured list (IL) due to ‘right forearm strain’. However, after two examinations, he underwent surgery.

Maeda, who underwent Tommy John surgery and missed the entire 2022 season, is building his body with the goal of entering the starting rotation for the opening game of the 2023 season. He is currently working hard to raise his senses in practice, such as live pitching at the Minnesota spring camp. As long as there are no major variables, it is expected to return to the mound from the start of the 2023 season.
According to ‘Sankei Sports’, Maeda is currently digesting the same schedule as regular players, not on the rehabilitation training menu. Maeda reserved his words, saying, “It’s important to get back to my usual routine. I don’t know anything yet because whether I can compete depends on my condition.”
However, according to Japan’s ‘Sponichi Annex’, Minnesota coach Rocco Baldelli said, “Maeda is preparing to throw in the first week of the opening season,” and revealed his plan to join the rotation, “It seems that his physical condition was 100% from 4 to 5 months ago. I think I will be well prepared.”
“Sankei Sports” said, “After live pitching on the 20th, Maeda will pitch before the Tampa Bay Race on the 26th, when the demonstration game begins.”
