This was from yesterday..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.
