The Twins gave up top prospect Brusdar Graterol in the offseason, trading him to the Los Angeles Dodgers for starter Kenta Maeda.

Graterol, 21, has been a regular reliever for the National League West-leading Dodgers, appearing in 10 games with so-so success. He's 0-2 with a 3.72 ERA and 0.931 WHIP.

Maeda, meanwhile, is 3-0 in four starts with a 2.66 ERA and 0.718 WHIP. He's been especially important with starters Homer Bailey and Rich Hill, also offseason acquisitions, sidelined.

The Twins open a three-game series at Target Field tonight (7:10, FSN) against the Milwaukee Brewers.
