Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo on Kenta Maeda:

Kenta Maeda, RHP, Hiroshima Toyo Carp — When I described Maeda as a Tim Lincecum type, I got a "good comparison" from a scout who had seen Maeda. Maeda has started 4-1 with a 2.06 ERA and has gone 75-51 in parts of seven seasons. He was 15-7 with a 2.10 ERA last season. It's expected suitors who missed on Masahiro Tanaka will bid for Maeda. The Red Sox have scouted him quite a bit. Scouts say he has three good major league pitches, but is not as accomplished as Tanaka. Maeda will get plenty of bids if he's posted this offseason.
