Padres' Cameron Maybin out at least six weeks with knee injury
The Padres will be without center fielder Cameron Maybin for at least six weeks due to a knee injury.
Padres center fielder Cameron Maybin will miss at least six weeks after suffering damage to the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, GM Josh Byrnes confirmed to Corey Brock and Jamal Collier of MLB.com. He suffered the injury diving for a ball in Sunday's game. Here's the video.
Maybin, 26, returned from the DL just last week after missing close to two months with a right wrist injury. He went 5-for-18 (.278) with a home run and four RBI in the four games between injuries. His overall season line sits at .157/.232/.235 (35 OPS+) in only 14 games played.
With Maybin on the shelf, San Diego has been using a combination of Chris Denorfia (108 OPS+), Will Venable (106 OPS+) and Alexi Amarista (105 OPS+) in center field.
