Cameron Maybin Gets Spring Training Invite

Cameron Maybin is going to get his first full taste of big league ball come February because the Tigers invited him to play with the major league players.  He had a chance to play in a few spring games last year but this year he’ll get the full treatment.

Maybin is considered the Tigers #1 prospect and he’s also considered by many as the best centerfield prospect in all of baseball.  At the ripe young age of nineteen, he hit .304/.387/.457 for the West Michigan Whitecaps, the Tigers Low A minor league affiliate.  He hit nine homeruns and stole 27 bases.  If Maybin pans out in the next couple of years, the Tigers are going to have to move Curtis Granderson over to a corner to make room for this kid.  Maybin was also highly sought after at the trading deadline and he was the sticking point that prevented the Tigers from reeling in Alfonso Soriano down the stretch.

This will definitely be good for Maybin as he’ll get to train with the best.  Nobody expects him to come up with the team because he still has some seasoning to do and all signs point to him starting at Double A Erie next year.  That should provide a solid challenge for Maybin, who will turn 20 right around the time the minor league season starts.
