Buy low on Maeda. His Siera is still 3.88 despite the horrible start he has gotten off to. Has a swstr% of 14.7% which is top 10 in the league and he's also top 15 in the league for Z-Contact%. Sounds like his fastball has been the issue and I believe this is something that will be fixed.

Here is hoping.  He could not look much worse.

He's playing at home VS Philly tonight. I'm not scared of that mediocre lineup. Could be a good bounce back game. He's in my lineup.

 

Agreed!

Not me.Him and Gausman are sharing a room on my waiver wire.I'm going to have to roll with my waiver wire pickups Severino and Lynn in their draft pick wasting stead.Good luck to the believers.Me,I think somethings wrong with him besides just being adjusted to by the hitters,but I drafted him off stats,not the eye test,so I don't know how he looked last year(and I can't take watching any more video)

How much confidence do you guys have after this 1 start ?

 

Enough to keep him rostered for several more starts, say even if he goes out next time and gets touched up by SF who isnt hitting well ?

 

I've got a few options in agents like Lynn, Hellickson, Eickoff,  been on the fence. I benched him last night but was glad to see a good start,  actually one of his better ones  for LAD since joining the team. Not quite sure about him going forward being a mess when he's not effective with the fastball, especially in that division.

This is really a BCF thing,but I'd go Lynn over him and I'm dropping Eick for a bat next week.

As others have said, his peripherals have been good. This isn't a Gausman situation or a low velocity problem that makes you worry. He gets the Giants next so I'm confident.
