Cameron Maybin is considered to be one of the best outfield prospects in all of baseball. With a trade from the Detroit Tigers to the Florida Marlins, Cameron Maybin will have ample opportunity to claim a starting outfield job during the 2008 season.

Cameron Maybin: Fantasy Baseball Expectations:

If Cameron Maybin can win a starting outfield job early in the season it would not be surprising to see him bat around .285 and steal 35 bases. However at the same time, Cameron Maybin is still only 20 years old and it would not be a shocker to see him start the ’08 season in the minors. With this is mind, gauging Cameron Maybin and his fantasy baseball value for 2008 is very tricky. Cameron Maybin no doubt has the talent and ability to be a fantasy baseball superstar, but whether his time comes in 2008 or 2009 is still very much up in the air.

325 at bats, 65 runs, 18 doubles, 4 triples, 11 homeruns, 45 RBI, 28 stolen bases, .290 batting average

Cameron Maybin: Fantasy Baseball Keeper League Report:

Cameron Maybin is one of the best keeper league prospects to have on your fantasy baseball team. Since Cameron Maybin is only 20 years old, it may take another season or two before he claims a full-time starting job and actually makes good on his talent. However if you are in a fantasy baseball keeper league that allows extra roster spots where you can afford to keep him on the bench for awhile, Cameron Maybin should definitely be worth the wait. Cameron Maybin has excellent potential for a 50 plus steal season as well as 15 homeruns, 25 doubles and 10 triples year in and year out. Stat wise, Cameron Maybin can be compared to a younger version of Carl Crawford. Cameron Maybin should be an all-star with the Florida Marlins and in fantasy baseball leagues in a season or two. Cameron Maybin is one prospect that all fantasy baseball managers will want to keep on their radar.
