Yankees acquire Cameron Maybin from Indians


With a plethora of outfielders on the IL, the Yankees struck a move Thursday morning to improve their outfield depth by trading for veteran outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Cleveland Indians. The move was first reported by Jack Curry of YES.

A career .254/.322/.368 hitter, Maybin is a shell of the player he once was. The 32-year-old used to be a 40-stolen base threat who could patrol the outfield with incredible range, but was not able to find a job in 2019 after playing marginally in 129 games between Miami and Seattle last season.

Maybin was not hitting well in Triple-A Columbus as he has posted a .688 OPS thus far, so it is not a sure thing that he will be added to major league roster. Nevertheless, this is a good depth move for the Yankees who have seen their surplus of outfielders depleted in the season’s early going.

Maybin was also arrested on a DUI charge while playing with the San Francisco Giants in spring training.
