Padres activate Cameron Maybin from disabled list

2 Comments

The Padres announced Sunday morning that they have officially activated outfielder Cameron Maybin from his season-opening stint on the disabled list.

Maybin suffered a ruptured biceps tendon while diving for a ball in a March 2 game in the Cactus League. The initial timetable had him missing close to three months, but he progressed much more quickly than expected and is in the San Diego starting lineup on Sunday afternoon against the host Nationals.

The Padres optioned reliever Kevin Quackebush to Triple-A El Paso to open up a 25-man roster spot.

Maybin was limited to 14 games in 2013 due to wrist and shoulder injuries.

The 27-year-old is under contract through 2017 and still owed $21 million guaranteed.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that a source is telling him that the Yankees have traded Bryan Mitchell and Chase Headley to the San Diego Padres.

Headley, a third baseman, hit .273/.352/.406 for the Yankees last year. He, of course, played for the Padres from 2007 through the middle of 2014, when he was dealt to New York. Mitchell has pitched 48 games for the Yankees, most from the pen, over four seasons, with an ERA of 4.94 in 98.1 innings. He doesn’t strike out many and he walks a lot.

No word yet on what the Padres could be sending to New York. We’ll obviously update as soon as more is learned.
