With all the new players on the Padres Maybin has become the odd man out.
Maybin is quoted as saying “I feel like I’m the best option as a center fielder”
Right now the outfield looks to be Kemp, Upton and playing center Wil Myers.

Fantasy Impact: After a good year in 2011, Maybin has been a big disappointment. One good reason he is always getting hurt. Maybin can steal bases (40 in 2011) , something the Padres can use now that Everth Cabrera is gone. His speed also makes him a good center fielder. Look and see how things shape up in spring training. As I said in my post about Yonder Alonso, the Padres first base situation is not so good. I would not be surprised if Wil Myers or Kemp moves to first base and Maybin takes the outfield job back. If that happens a late round pick on Maybin would be a smart move.
