Maybe, Maybin not?
By AJ Mass
It is certainly early on in the spring training process, but that doesn't mean the San Diego Padres aren't going to be monitoring the progress of Cameron Maybin very closely as he attempts to rebound from a sore right wrist.
Initial reports had Maybin all set to return to action on Monday, but the injury left him unable to participate. Maybin was quick to tell reporters that he would have been able to play had this been the regular season, but keep in mind that he did miss some time due to an injury on this same wrist during the 2012 campaign.
The sky is certainly not falling here, and there's no reason to go dropping Maybin to the bottom of your draft lists just yet. That said, one would certainly hope that Maybin's absence doesn't go on for very much longer, lest the team be forced to plan for a whole lot more of Chris Denorfia than expected this April.
