Latest Update Giants have signed outfielder Justin Maxwell Sat Dec, 06, 02:20 PM
Excellent athletically and blessed with a huge frame, he has good power and base-stealing ability. Has defensive versatility in the outfield.
Flaws: : Lacks focus at times, which has hurt his development and ability to receive regular at-bats in the bigs. Swings far too freely and strikes out too much.
Maxwell saw limited action with Kansas City last season, appearing in just 20 games for the Royals and 40 at bats. He does have power/speed upside if he sees significant time in the lineup. It is not as though the San Francisco outfield, outside of Hunter Pence, is locked in place for 2015.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Wherever Maxwell ends up he is an extreme longshot to have any fantasy value.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Maxwell appeared in 20 games for the Royals and was downright brutal at the plate. He batted .150 with no home runs and 20 strikeouts. He will play at Triple-A for the time being, but has a chance to be recalled later in the season.Analyst: David Kerr
Maxwell's .397 OPS wasn't cutting it. He'll likely try to latch on somewhere else. Analyst: Spencer Silva
