The San Diego Padres were hopeful that Cameron Maybin would be ready for the start of the regular season after suffering an injury a few days back.
That won’t be the case as Maybin suffered a ruptured left biceps tendon and will miss the next 2-3 months, this according to MLB.com on Twitter.
@Padres OF Cameron Maybin to miss 2-3 months after MRI reveals ruptured left biceps tendon.
It’s a tough blow for the Friars who were expecting to have Maybin lead off this season.
One of the speedier players in the game, Maybin tore up the basepaths last season when he was healthy – however – he struggled to stay healthy, something that has plagued Maybin for his entire career.
A former Florida (now Miami) Marlin, Maybin was one of the most highly touted prospects in Major League history but has never fully capitalized upon his potential. Part of that has to due with his lengthy injury history which has again derailed portions of another season.
Thankfully unlike last season, it’s not a leg injury so Maybin should be ready to harass opposing catchers upon his return.
