Minnesota Twins Japanese pitcher Kenta Maeda (35) fired a flare of revival.
Maeda started the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the Miami Marlins at Rondipo Park in Miami, Florida, on the 5th (Korean time). On this day, he recorded 3 hits, 1 home run, 1 run and 9 strikeouts in 5 innings.
Maeda performed well in his first appearance after returning from injury. In the second half of the 2021 season, he was on the operating table due to an elbow injury, and the 2022 season was devoted to rehabilitation. He devoted himself to recovery over the course of one season, and came back healthy ahead of the season.
Maeda, who focused on raising the sense of the game in the demonstration game, recorded an average ERA of 4.91 with 1 win and 1 loss in 14⅔ innings in 5 games. Maeda said, “No problem. He is in good shape. He has no elbow pain at all,” he said, confident of his season performance.
And Maeda performed well in his first appearance of the season. Maeda announced a good start in the first episode with a tripartite retreat. In the second inning, Avisail Garcia allowed a left-handed solo shot. He quickly cleared the inning after finishing the inning without allowing an extra run. In the fifth inning, he struck out all three batters.
Maeda endured with the fewest points. In the sixth inning, leadoff hitter John Berti hit left-handed. The bench moved immediately, and Maeda finished the day after passing the ball to Milio Pagan.
Maeda made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2016 through a posting system (private competitive bidding). He finished his debut season with a 16-11 ERA of 3.48, and in 2017 he went 13-6 with an ERA of 4.22. He was a part of the Dodgers starting lineup. 온라인바카라
After four seasons with the Dodgers, Maeda moved to Minnesota in 2020. He played an active role with an average ERA of 2.70 with 6 wins and 1 loss in 11 games in the first year of the transfer, which was played in a shortened season due to Corona 19. However, the following year, he went 6-5 with a 4.66 earned run average, before being out for the season due to injury.
Maeda recovered from his injuries and returned to health. He played well in his return match, raising expectations for his season.
