Sources: Maeda, Tigers reach 2-year, $24M deal


Free agent right-hander Kenta Maeda will remain in the AL Central next season, agreeing to a two-year, $24 million contract with the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Maeda, 35, went 6-8 with a 4.23 ERA and 117 strikeouts in 21 games for the Minnesota Twins last season — including a 3.36 ERA over the final 17 games.

The seven-year veteran, who entered MLB with the Dodgers in 2016, had Tommy John surgery in September 2021 and didn’t return until the start of the 2023 season. He has a career record of 65-49 with a 3.92 ERA.

MLB Network first reported Maeda to the Tigers.
