OF Cameron Maybin reportedly traded to Mariners
The Seattle Mariners are the winners of the Cameron Maybin sweepstakes.
The Mariners have acquired Maybin in a trade with the Miami Marlins, according to The Seattle Times’ Ryan Divish.
Maybin was a popular player mentioned in trade deadline talks, with the Yankees also being discussed as a potential suitor.
The 31-year-old is batting .251 this season — almost in line with his career .255 average. He provides versatility and flexibility in the outfield as he can play all three spots. He could be in the mix to split time with Guillermo Heredia in center for Seattle.
The Mariners had to make some changes by moving Dee Gordon back to second base from center field following Robinson Cano’s suspension, and this gives them another option. It’s the second year in a row that Maybin has been traded to an AL West team midseason.
