The New York Yankees are exploring possible avenues to add an outfielder with both Aaron Judge and Clint Frazier on the disabled list, and Cameron Maybin could be a name to watch as Tuesday’s trade deadline approaches.

Maybin is batting just .251 this year after he hit .228 with the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Angels a year ago. The 31-year-old wouldn’t give the Yankees much at the plate, but they’re only looking for a temporary fill-in with Judge expected to miss about a month due to a wrist injury.
There have been reports that the Yankees could be eyeing a much better outfielder, but Maybin would come at a more reasonable price.
