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:
Perception of some other teams is that the Braves are open to moving Cameron Maybin as a sell-high item before July 31.

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.
