Maeda needs to improve off a flat effort at Wrigley Field, where he walked five in 3 2/3 innings of a no-decision. It was his second start off the DL with a hip strain. As other injured starters return, Maeda could be headed to the bullpen.

Stripling threw a quality start at the Cubs, but wasn’t as sharp as he had been and a six-game win streak was snapped. Now he gets the Cubs again with a chance to show he can quickly adjust and start another win streak for his longshot All-Star bid.
