Padres Re-Sign Outfielder Cameron Maybin Through 2016
The San Diego Padres are making a long-term commitment to outfielder Cameron Maybin -- the AP reports that Maybin has agreed to terms on a contract that runs through at least 2016.
Maybin, who turns 25 next month, had a breakout season last year with 40 stolen bases. He came to the Padres via a trade with the then-Florida Marlins in November 2010.
The new contract includes a team option for 2017, with financial terms not disclosed. Maybin would have been eligible for arbitration after this season and free agency in 2016.
