Latest Update Cameron Maybin suspended 25 games Wed Jul, 23, 03:01 PM
Highly athletic and rangy, he has the five tools scouts look for. His defense is superb (and is his best attribute). Can also draw walks, hit for a little power and steal bases.
Flaws: : Is still too much of a free swinger and needs to cut down on his strikeouts. Also, he hasn't shown enough overall ability and endurance for an everyday player in the bigs.
OK, well now this guy has just vaulted up into full-blown clown status, if he wasn't there already. You're telling me that this guy played this poorly and he was taking speed? Come on. What a joke. If you haven't completely moved away from using Maybin, now is your chance for a clean break. Drop him for good and don't ever look back.Analyst: Howard Bender
This is likely just a day off for Maybin, who has been playing off and on lately. Maybin hasn't exactly been stellar lately either, going four for his last 28, so the lack of playing time is no surprise. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Maybin went 0-4 last night with 2 strikeouts against the Rockies. Will Venable will take his spot in center field for this afternoon's series finale. Maybin is batting .256 this season with only one stolen base in 55 games played. Analyst: Drew Phelps
Like the rest of the Padres offense, Maybin has struggled to be productive in the first half of the season, with Sunday's RBI being just his sixth of the season through 143 at-bats. Unless he picks up the pace as we reach the All-Star break, there is no reason he should be rostered outside of deep NL-only formats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
