Cameron Maybin: Announces retirement
Maybin announced his retirement from baseball via his personal Twitter account Monday.
Maybin appeared in nine games for the Mets in 2021, recording just one hit in 28 at-bats to go along with one stolen bag. The outfielder spent time with 11 different organizations during his 15-year career, hitting .254 with 72 home runs, 354 RBI and 187 stolen bases over 3,824 total games.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Cameron Maybin: Outrighted to Triple-A
Maybin cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The 34-year-old was designated for assignment at the start of the week but will remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Maybin went 1-for-28 with two runs and a stolen bases in nine games for the Mets.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Cameron Maybin: Removed from 40-man roster
The Mets designated Maybin for assignment Monday.
Maybin will cede his spot on the 40-man and 26-man active roster to fellow outfielder Mason Williams, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding move. The Mets are likely hoping that Williams can offer more production as a fill-in option in a banged-up outfield than Maybin, who went 1-for-28 with 12 strikeouts over nine games. The 34-year-old Maybin will most likely clear waivers, but expect him to elect free agency rather than reporting to Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Cameron Maybin: Steals base in Mets debut
Maybin went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to Atlanta.
Maybin reached on a wild pitch after he struck out in the ninth inning. He stole second base and advanced to third on another wild pitch, but he couldn't come around to score. The 34-year-old outfielder has a .247/.307/384 slash line with one home run, seven RBI, eight runs scored and three stolen bases in 32 games between the Cubs and Tigers last year. Maybin could be in line for regular playing time as the Mets deal with a bevy of injuries.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Cameron Maybin: Called up, starting
Maybin's contract was selected by the Mets on Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Maybin was traded from the Cubs to the Mets on Tuesday, and he'll play left field and bat third Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. Maybin appeared in 10 games for Triple-A Iowa to begin the year and hit .103 with a home run and three RBI.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Cameron Maybin: Acquired by Mets
Maybin was traded from the Cubs to the Mets on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Maybin has been stuck in the minors so far this season, hitting .103/.186/.205 through 10 Triple-A games. He'll remain at that level for now with his new organization, but the Mets may need him soon, as they're in the middle of an injury crisis. Maybin produced a 127 wRC+ for the Yankees in 2019 but otherwise hasn't finished with a wRC+ north of 88 since 2016, so he's unlikely to provide much fantasy value if and when he gets a call-up....

Cubs' Cameron Maybin: Back with Cubs on MiLB deal
Maybin re-signed Sunday with the Cubs on a minor-league deal and will report to the team's alternate training site, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Maybin's willingness to rejoin the Cubs one day after being released likely indicates that he'll be the organization's top option for a call-up in the event the big club needs an extra outfielder at any point. For now, the Cubs will carry only one reserve outfielder (Jake Marisnick) on the 26-man roster, though everyday third baseman Kris Bryant is capable of playing either corner spot as needed....

Cameron Maybin: Released by Cubs
Maybin was granted his release by the Cubs on Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
The Cubs have Ian Happ, Jason Heyward, Joc Pederson and Jake Marisnick on the roster as outfielders, and Kris Bryant is also an outfield option when he's not playing third, so Maybin didn't have a place on the team. The 33-year-old will now get the opportunity to latch on with a club in need of a veteran outfielder, but he likely won't be in a fantasy-relevant role this season no matter where he lands....

Cubs' Cameron Maybin: Joins camp Thursday
Maybin officially joined camp Thursday and will compete for a reserve role with the Cubs, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Maybin came over to Chicago in a trade deadline deal last season, and he ended up playing in 18 games for the Cubs down the stretch. Ian Happ, Jason Heyward and the newly-signed Joc Pederson should be locked into starting roles, and Jake Marisnick figures to be the fourth outfielder. That means Maybin will have to make the team as a fifth outfielder, and playing time will likely be limited.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Cameron Maybin: Invited to Cubs camp
Maybin signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Friday that includes an invite to spring training, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Maybin was acquired by the Cubs at the trade deadline in 2020, and he'll return to the team for spring training in 2021. The 33-year-old appeared in 18 games for Chicago and slashed .250/.304/.365 with five RBI and three stolen bases. He'll now compete for a bench spot ahead of the 2021 campaign.... See More ...

Cubs' Cameron Maybin: Swipes bag in loss
Maybin went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a stolen base Wednesday but the Cubs fell to the Pirates 2-1.
Maybin roped near-identical doubles down the left-field line in the fourth and sixth innings and would end up stealing his second base of the season in the losing effort. The 33-year-old is hitting .262/.311/.417 with a home run, five RBI and eight runs scored across 90 plate appearances as he continues to serve a bench role for the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Cameron Maybin: Starting Wednesday
Maybin (illness) will bat eighth and play left field Wednesday against Cleveland.
An illness caused Maybin to be scratched from the lineup Saturday, and he didn't start either of the next two games, though he did appear off the bench Tuesday. He'll be involved from the start Wednesday and will look to improve upon his .693 OPS from his first 10 games for his new team.... See More ... See Less
