Kenta Maeda Newsbeat

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Why the Dodgers’ handling of Kenta Maeda highlights the potential conflicts of interest with contract incentives - CBSSports.com

If I raise my eyebrows at the suggestion, does it say more about me or the writer of this piece?

The Dodgers have had a brilliant season, and could well soon appear in a third consecutive World Series. They don’t have to operate in a way that raises eyebrows about their true intent, which makes the possibility of suppressing Maeda’s earnings all the more maddening.

Maeda strikes out 12, drives in 2 as Dodgers top Padres 2-0

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kenta Maeda dominated on the mound and helped himself at the plate.

The right-hander struck out 12 batters and drove in both runs in leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 2-0 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night.

“It’s hard to imagine him being any better,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “It was really, really fun to watch. He was great all night long.”

We were discussing a week or so ago pitchers driving in their run support- here’s another one for that list.
