While Mike Stanton will get a chance to play every day for the Marlins, Florida has made sure Cameron Maybin will get his chance to play every day as well -- in Triple-A New Orleans.

Maybin, 23, was optioned to New Orleans after Thursday night's loss to the Rangers.

Maybe hadn't played in eight games and was hitting just .225/.290/.341 in 51 games for the Marlins. He hit five home runs with 19 RBI.

"We're going to give Mike Stanton a chance to play, and Cody Ross is doing a great job, and [Chris] Coghlan is hot," Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez told reporters, including MLB.com . "We knew this could happen when we brought Mike up, and we have to do what's best for Maybin."

Maybin was the Tigers' first-round choice in the 2005 draft and a key piece of the trade that sent Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera to Detroit following the 2007 season.

Maybin made cameos in the big leagues in 2007 and 2008. Last season he hit .250/.318/.409 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 54 games.

The Marlins called up pinch-hitter Mike Lamb to take Maybin's roster spot.
