      John Mayberry: Released by Tigers

      Mayberry was released by the Tigers on Friday, Jason Beck of reports. Mayberry had a terrible spring, hitting just .119/.213/.238 with one home run and two RBI, leading to his release from Detroit. The 32-year-old hasn't hit above .230 since 2012, and lacks any significant power or speed, so he is unlikely to provide much fantasy value in 2016.

      Tigers' John Mayberry: Optioned to minor league camp

      The Tigers optioned Mayberry to minor league camp Sunday. Mayberry has toggled between the majors and minors with a handful of organizations over the past two seasons, relegating the outfielder to a minor league contract and invite to spring training with the Tigers this year. He didn't do himself any favors with a .122/.217/.244 line and five walks versus 13 strikeouts in 41 Grapefruit League at-bats this spring. Thus, he'll likely open the season at Triple-A Toledo as organizational depth for the Tigers' outfield.

      Tigers' John Mayberry: Going to spring training with Tigers

      Mayberry signed a minor league deal with the Tigers on Wednesday, which includes an invite to spring training, Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports. The 32-year-old outfielder has a .260/.315/.517 career slash line against lefties, but he was ineffective against both hands last season, hitting .164 with three home runs in 119 plate appearances with the Mets. Cameron Maybin, Anthony Gose and J.D. Martinez figure to be the starters in the outfield for the Tigers, but Gose (career .202 hitter against lefties) could use a platoon partner, which would be where Mayberry fits in if he is able to make the team out of spring training. Otherwise he will just be an organizational soldier at Triple-A to start the year.

      Michael Cuddyer replaced by John Mayberry in Mets' lineup

      Mets left fielder Michael Cuddyer isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game. Cuddyer was forced to leave the game on Sunday due to knee pain. He's been battling a lingering knee problem for much of the season. Cuddyer will be replaced in the lineup by John Mayberry, who gets his 12th start of the year in left. Manager Terry Collins said he hopes Cuddyer can avoid a stint on the disabled list by taking medication, reports "He got some different medication [Monday], and we're going to see how that plays out during the game," Collins said. "The one thing I told him is I didn't want to start him and then have to take him out in the third or fourth [inning]. We'll just see how he reacts as the day goes by, as he does some work and gets some swings off it. He's still pretty tender."

      Mets' John Mayberry Jr. slugs third home run in victory on Friday

      John Mayberry Jr. came through with a big two-run home run for the Mets on Friday, as they defeated the Braves 5-3. Mayberry's fourth-inning blast, his third of the season, proved to be the difference in the score. "It's nice to be clicking offensively, for sure," Mayberry said, per "Offense is part of the game that I guess is definitely contagious, and when you get a couple guys that are going well, then I think the rest of team can [follow]." Mayberry also singled and scored later in the game, as he was getting a rare start in left field with a lefty on the mound.

Mayberry is not in the lineup on Sunday with the Mets facing a righty starter, but he could be used as a pinch-hitter later in the game.
