No ligament damage found in Cameron Maybin's shoulder

Jul 7, 2010, 9:44 AM EDT

Cameron Maybin likely feared the worst when his surgically repaired shoulder began hurting again following his demotion to Triple-A, but an MRI exam revealed no ligament damage and he’s expected to resume playing as soon as next week.
Maybin has officially been diagnosed with inflammation, so hopefully he can pick up right where he left off in going 10-for-28 (.357) with five walks and two steals through eight games at Triple-A.
If he can get healthy and keep rolling while Mike Stanton continues to struggle in Florida the Marlins could bring Maybin back up as an alternative to the 20-year-old rookie.

    If it’s true as you reported a couple of days ago that Maybin’s repaired shoulder has been troubling him consistently, why not let the kid rest a little longer and pumping him with acai berry juice or some such thing to cut that inflammation down? I’ve always thought that Maybin would come around eventually and find his footing, and was a little surprised at how poorly he was doing this season – until the revelation about the lingering shoulder problem. Having all but destroyed Andrew Miller’s confidence and focus by rushing him to the front lines about a year before he had finished basic training (as opposed to, say, going out and making an investment in a trade or free agent signing for a decent veteran in yet another counterproductive Scrooge McLoria attempt to hoard shekels), it’d be a shame to see the Feesh ruin the other half of the deal too by keeping him playing hurt.
    .
    Then again, as the Feesh continue to languish in fourth place and sink further behind the Bravos, Feelies and Mutts, maybe Scrooge and the Chihuahua are just showcasing Maybin as trade bait for yet another one of their perpetual restockings of the farm with EYPs.
