.278: Cameron Maybin’s batting average through Sunday with the Carolina Mudcats, the Florida Marlins’ Class AA affiliate located in Zebulon. After starting the season with 6 hits in 13 at-bats, Maybin, the former Roberson High player whom the Detroit Tigers took with the 10th overall pick in the 2005 draft, went 9-for-41 (.219).


And then Sportsline's analysis of the situation...
Maybin dominated Double-A last year, too. He likely belongs in at least Triple-A, but Carolina is much closer to South Florida than New Mexico. That is the good news. Maybin could be called up earlier than most elite minor league prospects, especially since he likely should have been the starting center fielder for the Marlins anyway.

In other words, not too much.


Marlins have promoted some of their elite players straight from AA to MLB. They did this with MCab and Hanley so it wouldn't surprise me to see Cameron skip AAA and join the big team mid season.


Actually, HanRam didn't play one single game in Florida's farm system.
The best examples of them pulling guys from AA are MCab - who you said - Dontrelle, and Hermida.

I think Maybin gets the call by June and for keeper leagues he is a must IMHO.

Regardless they had Hanley skip AAA and go straight from AA to MLB.

Not really. He played for the Boston Red Sox at the end of 2005. Was traded to the Marlins in the off-season and began the season on the MLB roster. You of all people not doing your research? I am shocked!

As far as Hanley is concerned, the Red Sox - not the Marlins - had him skip AA. The Marlins simply inserted a MLB player into their lineup on Opening Day 2006.

He played a total of 2 games for the Red Sox. FLA, when they acquired him didn't send him down to AAA so yes, they had him skip AAA also.

I just read this thread and wanted to point out that Maybin was actually traded to the Marlins. He doesn't play for the Tigers anymore.

;-D

Maybin is not going to be anywhere near as good as Hanley.

Maybin is a great defensive player though, the only area Hanley is not above average. Maybin wont be a 300 hitter nor have 25 hr power in my opinion in the majors. He will steal ya a bunch of bases though.

From what I understand, it was part of the Orlando Cabrera trade.

Wait, wait. He's on the Red Sox. How was he involved in a deal with the Tigers and Marlins yet wind up on the Sox? Unless...was he in that other deal with Josh Beckett for Manny Ramirez?

No one in this thread is comparing Hanley to Maybin so I'm not sure where you are coming from.
