Maybin will head to the team's alternate training site. He'll serve as outfield depth for the organization.
The Cubs released OF Cameron Maybin.
Maybin split the 2020 season between the Tigers and Cubs, but wasn't particularly impressive. The 33-year-old will look to latch on elsewhere as outfield depth.
Free agent outfielder Cameron Maybin has signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs that includes an invite to Spring Training, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.
Maybin put up a lackluster .247/.307/.387 batting line with one home run, seven RBI, and three stolen bases over 93 at-bats between the Tigers and Cubs last season. He'll compete for a bench spot this spring.
Cameron Maybin played left field and hit fourth against the Pirates on Wednesday, going 2-for-4 with two doubles. He also stole his second base in the 2-1 defeat.
The Cubs seem committed to playing Maybin at least every other day, and he's slashing a pretty .333/.391/.524 over his last seven games. If you need batting average and are desperate for steals, he's probably on the waiver wire.
Cameron Maybin went 1-for-3 with a single and a walk in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Pirates.
Maybin continues to get starts against lefties, but his .250 average and .690 OPS suggest that he hasn't played very well this year. Keep him on the waiver wire in the season's final days.
