Maybin back in action
A mild groin strain kept Cameron Maybin out of the lineup a couple of days for Triple-A New Orleans.
The 22-year-old, however, was in center field, batting second in the Zephyrs’ 5-1 loss to Portland.
Maybin went 1-for-4 on Tuesday, and his average is .375 in seven games since he was optioned by the Marlins.
Maybin exited a May 15 game after two at-bats against Tacoma, and he missed two games before seeing some action on Monday.
Since being sent down, Maybin has been hitting mostly in either the leadoff of second spots. He is 9-for-24 with a triple, three RBIs and three runs scored.
