Cameron Maybin (CF)

Atlanta Braves - 0% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

His new found power is nice but he carries a .147/.216/.412 slash line with 12 strikeouts in 34 at-bats. He was 1-for-5 in the game tonight, with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Maybin is lucky the Braves have no other viable options for center field. He looks to get regular time and bat early in the lineup. But he is by no means, in consideration as a worthy pickup.

Maybin is off to a slow start, although this was his second home run of the season. If he can produce, the Braves would like him to be their primary center fielder.

Fantasy Impact: Until he proves he can be consistent at the plate, Maybin is best left on the waiver wire.

Maybin led off the game with the home run and ended up going 1-for-5. Maybin is set to get in more time at the CF slot with Eric Young possibly sliding over to left.

Fantasy Impact: Maybin is only 28 and perhaps he does have something left in the tank. This bears watching as the season progresses but right now he has little to offer in fantasy leagues.

Maybin goes 1-2 with a walk and a stolen base.

Fantasy Impact: Looks like Bub Black read my post and let Maybin play center and lead off in the spring opener. His first time up Maybin got a hit and then stole second. It was a good start for Maybin. Ok I understand that Myers did not play today, but Bud gave Maybin the chance. It's good thing to keep an eye on. If Maybin can get the chance he could be a good sleeper.

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. (Source: Michael Hurcomb |

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.
