The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal first reported the Maeda/Graterol part of the deal.
The Angels and Dodgers are separately making a trade. Jeff Passan reports that the Angels are sending Luis Rengifo to the Dodgers for outfielder Joc Pederson.
Graterol is a 21-year-old pitching prospect from Venezuela. He pitched 9.2 innings in relief for the Twins last season, working all the way up to MLB from rookie ball.
