The Braves may shop Cameron Maybin

I don’t feel like the Braves, if they’re being honest, thought that they’d be hovering near .500 right now. I likewise don’t feel like anyone expected Cameron Maybin to hit as well as he’s hit. Given that the Braves’ non-awful record is sort of gravy at the moment and given Maybin’s performance, the club may try to take advantage of the situation and make a deal:

At the moment Maybin is having a career year, hitting .294/.363.416 with seven homers, 39 RBI and 15 steals. Seems like a good idea to get something for him while the getting is good.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
