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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Maybin was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Brewers since he was feeling ill.
Maybin was initially slated to play left field, but he'll retreat to the bench due to an illness. Kyle Schwarber will shift to left field while Ildemaro Vargas enters the lineup at second base.
Maybin is starting in right field and batting eighth in Monday's game against the Cardinals.
With Jason Heyward (illness) out of the lineup, Maybin picks up a start for his new team. The veteran outfielder is slashing .232/.283/.375 in 20 games for the Tigers and Cubs so far this season. It's unclear when Heyward will be able to return, so Maybin may be able to start a few more times in the next couple of days.
Maybin was traded from the Tigers to the Cubs in exchange for Zack Short on Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Maybin hit a surprising .284/.365/.494 in 82 games for the Yankees last season, but his .244/.311/.415 line in a small sample of 14 games for the Tigers this year looks a whole lot closer to his numbers in the majority of his recent seasons. That's still good enough for Maybin to fill a bench role, which is likely all he'll be asked to do in Chicago.
Maybin isn't in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.
Maybin was slated to sit for the first game of the doubleheader Friday before it was postponed, and he'll still be out of the lineup for Saturday's matinee. Christin Stewart will take over in left field for Game 1.
Maybin is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Maybin started the last two contests in left field and went 4-for-7 with three doubles, two runs and one RBI, but he'll take a seat for the matinee. Christin Stewart is starting in left field in Game 1 for Detroit.
Maybin is not starting Thursday against the Twins.
Christin Stewart is starting in left field in place of Maybin in Thursday's series opener against Minnesota. Over his past five games, Maybin is 4-for-13 with three doubles and two runs scored.
Maybin went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Cubs.
It's mostly been a struggle for Maybin at the plate this season but he bust out for his first multi-hit effort of August, raising his batting average to .256 in the process. The veteran outfielder has been jockeying with Victor Reyes and Christin Stewart for playing time, so a few more performances like this one could help Maybin get into the lineup more often.
Maybin is starting in right field and batting seventh in Tuesday's game against the Cubs.
This will be Maybin's first game action since Thursday, as the Tigers have rolled with some combination of Victor Reyes, Jorge Bonifacio and Christin Stewart in the corner outfield spots recently. Detroit is just 11-16 overall and 2-8 in its last 10 games, so the team may opt to take a longer look at some younger players, which doesn't bode well for the 33-year-old Maybin's outlook.
Maybin is not in the lineup for Friday's game against Cleveland.
Maybin started Thursday, but this will be his fourth absence from the lineup in the last six games, and he could be slipping into a reserve role for the Tigers due to his rough .188/.235/.313 slash line. Victor Reyes and Jorge Bonifacio will start in the corner outfield spots Friday, with JaCoby Jones patrolling center.
