Cameron Maybin 2013 Outlook

I couldn't find a thread for Maybin for this year. He's been hurt most of the season and came out of the gate scuffling before he did get hurt. What kind of production should we expect once he returns?

I think the most you could ask for is Desmond Jennings like production. Low average, low consistency, but got good speed on a team that could use it. Good to average outfield but not important in most fantasy leagues. I personally like the combo of Denorfia and Venable in the outfield along with Quentin and Blanks. Gives you plenty of bang.

Let's say there isn't going to be a rush to pick him up unless it's a NL only league.

Got to think the rehab stint must be about up and Maybin will get called up soon. Could be imminent. He went 7 for 25 with a couple of HRs. Is he going to be any everyday option though? That SD outfield is crowded.

I believe they said they wanted him to get about 30 AB in rehab, so he should be up pretty quickly here.

Doubt Venable and his .219 BA (.280 OBP) are going to keep Maybin from seeing everyday PT, assuming Maybin performs to career norms. As it is, Venable hardly plays vs. lefties - only 22 AB against them out of 151 total on the year.

Most likely scenario would be Quentin in LF, Maybin in CF, and Denorfia/Venable platooning in RF. Blanks, who has quietly put up a .816 OPS this season, gets occasional time at RF, LF, and 1B. Guzman and his .587 OPS probably gets to head to AAA.

EXTREMELY small sample size...but he is hitting .323/.447/.645 in 38 PA at Tuscon. But the number that caught my eye was the 7/6 BB/K ratio. If he can carry that over it will obviously up his value some as higher OBP% means more SB attempts, not to mention the fact that it just makes him a better hitter overall. Again small sample size, but the walks and the 3 HR have me buying that he will produce when he is brought up and that he is fully healthy.

Looks like Maybin is getting reinstated for Thurs. Could be an interesting pickup for some guys. I'm not saying he'll be a juggernaut, but it might be worth an early grab speculative shot if you have the room or can ditch someone struggling in your lineup.

Where does he usually hit in the order and is he going to play everyday? I'm intrigued about the speed potential and I'm chalking up the horrible BA to the wrist injury.

At the beginning of the season he was primarily hitting 7th. I would imagine he'll hit at the bottom of the order initially, but if he could get it going, the Padres could have some nice table setters at the top of the order in Maybin and E, Cabrera.

Gaudy rehab numbers and this guy has always been highly touted - his performance soared in the second half as he recovered from various injuries last year. And I do seem to recall his having the longest-hit HR in the majors last year.

Could he be a legitimate power/speed threat in a greatly improved Pads lineup? Anyone care to provide some ROS projections?

Many Pads fans are/were hoping to see Maybin kind of do what Domonic Brown is doing for the Phils (maybe not that ridiculous power run he is on) but just the breakout after some disappointment. This guy was a top 10 MLB prospect 2-3 years in the late 00's. I get as frustrated as anyone when teams seem "cheap" and dont spend money, but in the case of the Pads right now, especially position players, they have a lot of players they really do need to be patient with and see what they have:

Alonso, Grandal, Gyorko, Maybin, Headley, Cabrera - thats a decent core of upside offensive potential, be it speed. power or combo.

I know he rarely gets on, but when he does he rarely gets caught stealing a bag. Also has some sneaky pop.

Thinking about replace Starling Marte with Maybin. I know he rarely gets on, but when he does he rarely gets caught stealing a bag. Also has some sneaky pop.

This belongs in bench coach, but DON'T drop Marte, period.

He really needs to produce because the Pads actually paid him.

For those fearing a low batting average, there's actually hope.

The Pads worked with him on his swing last year, and ever since he got it down in July he hit .287/.335/.414 in 263 plate appearances down the stretch. That's very good, and maybe underpins his rehab numbers as well. His swing has also been around during Spring training, so there's proof he's sticking with it and it may still be working.

I'd really keep an eye on him. If this adjustment can legitimately bring his average up to a respectable level, then he can be very useful.

Man am I glad I had kept him on my DL this whole time. I really had no need in the OF, but someone else dropped him and I figured what the hell?

ROS projections.... hmmm.... this is what I think he will finish the year with (and not what I think his stats from last night forward will look like exclusively)...

.255, .320, .370... 6-8 HR, maybe 35 RBI, 40 tops, but I'd say 35 (or even 30...) is more realistic. As for his Run count-- that will all depend on where he hits in that lineup, so I'll go with a really low floor for now and say 30, maybe 40 tops. Unless he takes over the role as their lead-off hitter. Then I'd pump it up to 50-55, assuming he can keep the role & run with it (har-har). Also, about 25 SB seems fair. I don't see more than that unless he really is let loose. Maybe 30.

I'll still take that from what is basically a bench player who I can slide into 3 different slots at any time (OF, CF, & UTL). I hope he outperforms those expectations, but going off of what his career has been like plus the late start, I don't want to expect too much from him now.

Nice to see the first game back go so well for him for sure though.

Not seeing that stat about batting average above... I'd adjust that bit of my projection to .270/.325. I still can't see him being a big hitter for average.... I dunno though. If that stat was for last year, it will be interesting to see how his return from injury affects things (if at all)-- for better or worse, as far as offensive strides he had been making last year.

The last start has me reserved a bit, I guess. He has always seemed to be a streaky player, but perhaps that is just my perception.

ROS .270 6-8hr and 25-30sb's? sounds about right... I would gladly take that production right now...
