Cameron Maybin

Cameron Maybin has already twice been a Marlins outfielder, most recently in 2018. He wasn’t bad for the Yankees in 2019, slashing his best line since 2016 with the Tigers. He slashed .285/.364/.494 this year for the Bombers, with a career-high 11 homers and 32 RBI.

A one-time 40-base stealer, the 33-year-old Maybin is no longer a viable double-digit stolen base threat, but he’s still fast enough to swipe once in a while. Another free agent who probably won’t have a problem finding a team to sign him, the Marlins could actually pick him up to bolster their questionable outfield.

Maybin is almost a guarantee to top Granderson’s 2019 output. The Marlins could probably get him for a pretty affordable sticker price, and count on him for a solid clubhouse presence.

What do you think? Is there anyone out there that would scare you off? Did one of these players look like a good deal to you? I’m not scared of your comments, so let me have it. Thanks for reading.
