Cameron Maybin collected three RBI and stole a base in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Maybin drew a bases-loaded walk in the second inning, and a two-run single in the sixth inning gave the Tigers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The stolen base was Maybin's first in two games since returning from a sprained thumb, and he's now got five RBI in those two games. Now that he's proven his health, the 29-year-old should move up in the Tigers' lineup after batting ninth Tuesday. Maybin is hitting .325/.397/.397 with 14 stolen bases on the year.

Detroit is hopeful that he will be ready to return from the disabled list when first eligible 10 days from now. Maybin, 29, is batting .325/.394/.398 with two homers and 13 steals in 63 games this season.

Cameron Maybin (thumb) will get an MRI or CT scan on Tuesday.

Maybin will miss his fourth straight game Monday due to a sprained left thumb. He took batting practice before the game, but continues to have issues. "I could still hit. But hitting in BP is not the same as in the game and I was feeling some pain today," said Maybin. "So it'd be smart to get a picture. I was going to try and play through it but just don't think I can, as bad as I want to." More should be known on his status after he goes for tests.

"It’s still pretty banged up but I’m going to try to give it a go tomorrow. … I was going to try to play again today but (manager) Brad (Ausmus) said he just wanted to give me a day and then see how it feels tomorrow. If it feels OK, then I’m probably going to play."
