Florida Marlins trade Cameron Maybin to San Diego Padres
From the Miami Herald:
One day after trading pitcher Andrew Miller, the Marlins have traded outfielder Cameron Maybin — the other key piece in their 2007 blockbuster deal with Detroit for Miguel Cabrera.
The Marlins traded Maybin to the San Diego Padres for right-handed relievers Ryan Webb and Edward Mujica, as they all but wiped clean their six-player return from the Tigers in the deal for Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis.
The two pitchers the Marlins are acquiring from the Padres are young but bring big-league experience.
Webb, 24, appeared in 54 games for the Padres last season, going 3-1 with a 2.90 ERA. Mujica, 26, has spent five seasons in the majors with the Indians and Padres, compiling an overall record of 8-9 in 179 games.
And there you have it, the end of the Maybin-era in Miami. I kind of felt like this was coming, just not in November… With the emergence of Mike Stanton, Logan Morrison, and Gaby Sanchez this season, and the return of Chris Coghlan in 2011, the Marlins are stacked with young talent. And of the group, Maybin has under-performed all of them.
Good Luck to you Cameron. I am hoping that a fresh start out in California is just what you need!!
And remember, it was ’30-YOC’ that supported you all the way!!!
