Any news from Michigan on the results? I received a offer of Maybin + (probably a draft pick) for Hansen. I like Maybin alot, but if he's out a year that extends my timeline a little too long. Thanks.

Season uncertain for Caps slugger Tuesday, May 16, 2006 By Brian VanochtenThe Grand Rapids Press LANSING -- A downpour ruined the West Michigan Whitecaps' chances of reclaiming first place in the Eastern Division at the end of a rain-plagued four-game series against the Lansing Lugnuts. The Whitecaps, however, had a bigger concern -- the health of Detroit Tigers first-round draft pick Cameron Maybin, sidelined with a puzzling injury to his right index finger. Maybin left for Detroit before Monday's game at Oldsmobile Park to be examined by a team doctor. He was expected to undergo an MRI of his right hand this morning in Grand Rapids. "I want him to get back in the lineup," Whitecaps manager Matt Walbeck said Monday. "He needs to play, but we're going to be very careful with him." Maybin, 19, leads the team with a .330 batting average. Maybin has been out of the lineup since May 7 because of a recurring problem with the "trigger finger" on his right hand. His index finger locks up on him -- at least twice in the past week -- making it impossible to flex it, grip a bat or throw a ball. A Tigers official at the weekend series in Lansing expressed concern the center fielder might be sidelined for an indefinite period. If surgery is necessary, it could cost Maybin the season. "It has presented some challenges for me," said Walbeck. "He sure is nice in that cleanup spot. He's missed, for sure, but we're going to make do."
