Analysis: Maeda will wind up missing just one turn with an injury he sustained fouling a ball off his leg while at the plate, and the move will push Clayton Kershaw back a day to pitch Monday at home against the Mets. Maeda has been rock-solid so far this season, posting a 5-2 record and a 3.51 ERA in nine starts while averaging just over a strikeout per inning.
