San Diego Padres center fielder , Cameron Maybin injured his left shoulder Sunday while robbing Los Angeles Dodgers Juan Uribe of an extra base hit with a spectacular catch. Initially Maybin stood up and appeared to shake it off but while the next batter was at the plate Maybin dropped his glove in clear pain. It is unclear how much, if any, time Maybin will miss as a result of the injury.
Maybin is expected to be the starting center fielder for the San Diego Padres as they look to turn the corner in their rebuilding process. Maybin is a talented player who has fought through injuries to his wrist and posterior cruciate ligament over the past couple of seasons limiting him to only 14 games in 2013. Maybin was healthy and ready for 2014 but now his status is unknown. For Maybin, hopefully the injury is minor and will not force him to miss serious time.
