On the off chance that Cameron Maybin’s Yankees days are numbered, he’s making a dramatic exit.
The understudy outfielder, who might be thrown away when Aaron Judge comes back from the harmed rundown, homered for the third straight game, an individual best, in the Yankees’ 3-0 shutout of the Rays at the Stadium.
Maybin went 3-for-3, scored twice and now has different hits in five of his previous eight amusements to raise his batting normal to .299.
“He’s been a really good player and another guy that has come in here and fit in, jelled, impacted the room, and then his performance speaks for itself between the lines, what he’s brought,” manager Aaron Boone said. “The flexibility to play anywhere in the outfield, the speed he brings to the basepaths, the energy he plays the game with and brings to the dugout on a nightly basis. We’ve seen the power come into play the last few days. He’s been really good for us — really good.”
All things considered, it may not be sufficient for him to keep a program spot. The Yankees sent outfielder Mike Tauchman down to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday night, to make room on the program for Giancarlo Stanton (left calf). Judge (stressed left sideways) could be back constantly, likely significance the end for the 32-year-old Maybin, except if the Yankees need to convey five outfielders and go with 12 pitchers rather than the 13 they generally have.
Whatever occurs, he has been a significant piece, helping the Yankees conquer the wounds to Judge and Stanton. He was gained from the Indians on April 25 for money contemplations and has sliced .299/.375/.467 with a .842 OPS in 38 amusements.
“One of the coolest, most positive teammates I’ve ever had,” Luke Voit said. “He knows the situation going on and you can’t tell. He’s been raking recently. He’s an awesome player. You can tell he’s played in the big leagues a long time.”
