Maeda (triceps) gave up two earned runs over three innings with four strikeouts and no walks during a rehab start Sunday for Triple-A St. Paul.
It was his second rehab outing with the Saints, and he went one inning longer than his first start, tossing 45 pitches (29 strikes) this time out. Maeda will likely need at least a couple more rehab starts before he's ready to be considered for Minnesota's rotation. The 35-year-old right-hander posted a 9.00 ERA across his first four starts (16 innings) this season before going on the injured list due to a right triceps strain, but 10 of the 16 runs he allowed came in the game during which he got hurt, April 26 against the Yankees.
