Cameron Maybin “doubtful” for Opening Day after injuring shoulder, biceps

More bad injury news for Padres center fielder Cameron Maybin, who left Sunday’s game after landing on his shoulder in the outfield and is now considered “doubtful” for Opening Day.

No word yet on the official injury because he’s scheduled to undergo further testing, but Maybin apparently did some damage to his biceps tendon in addition to the shoulder.

Last season he missed all but 14 games with knee and wrist injuries. He’s signed through 2017 and owed $21 million in guaranteed money, so being without Maybin in center field would once again cause the Padres to scramble for fallback plans.
