I've heard there may be some questions early on regarding his contact skills. If you want to go for the extremely high upside, then give him a look. If you want a surer thing closer to the majors, look elsewhere. Depending on who you are choosing from, I like the gamble.
That's a good summary of Maybin. Personally, I like going for the stars in the minors, as I feel that I can pick up solid players with redrafts. Maybin's actually going to start off in Lo-A, something unforeseen when he was being drafted. They thought he would be very, very raw, but he impressed in instructional league as well as this year's minor league ST.
