Cameron Maybin was scratched from the Angels' Cactus League lineup on Monday due to "minor right shoulder fatigue."
Maybin has been brutalized by injuries over the last several seasons, but this doesn't sound like too big of a deal. The 29-year-old outfielder was acquired from the Tigers in early November for 23-year-old right-hander Victor Alcantara. Maybin batted .315/.383/.418 with four home runs, 43 RBI, and 15 stolen bases over 94 games for Detroit in 2016. Mar 6 - 2:44 PM

According to Jerry Crasnick of, Cameron Maybin is now represented by Casey Close and Excel Sports Management.

Maybin was previously represented by Riverfront Sports. The 29-year-old was swapped from the Tigers to the Angels in November after batting .316/.384/.319 with four homers, 43 RBI, and 15 steals over 94 games in 2016. He's due to become a free agent after the 2017 season.

Angels acquired OF Cameron Maybin from the Tigers for RHP Victor Alcantara; exercised Maybin's $9 million club option for 2017.

The deal is now official. Maybin projects to play left field with his new team, which is noteworthy when you consider that the Angels had a major-league worst .584 OPS out of left field this past season. Even if Maybin can't duplicate the .316/.384/.319 batting line he put up in 2016, he should be a marked improvement. At least when he's healthy enough to play.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels will acquire Cameron Maybin from the Tigers.

Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports that the Tigers will receive right-hander Victor Alcantara in return. The Angels are expected to pick up the $9 million club option on Maybin's contract. The 29-year-old has primarily played center field in his career, but advanced metrics haven't been kind to him there over the past couple of years and the Angels already have some guy named Mike Trout. Maybin figures to move to left field, which has been a very tough spot for the Angels to fill recently. Health is always the big question with him, but he has the potential to be a strong addition.

Jason Beck of hears that the Tigers are working on a potential "sign-and-trade scenario" involving outfielder Cameron Maybin.

Maybin's contract includes a $9 million club option for 2017, so he has some appeal as a trade chip. Apparently the Tigers are making progress on finding a taker. JaCoby Jones gives Detroit a potential low-cost replacement in center field. Maybin was limited to just 94 games this season due to injuries, but he batted .316/.384/.319 with four homers and 15 steals.

Maybin finished the season slashing an impressive .316/.384/.319 with four homers and 43 RBI but was limited to only 94 games due to a variety of injuries.
