This will be the third separate stint for Maybin with the Tigers, as he was selected by them back in the 2005 MLB Draft. He spent the 2007 and 2016 seasons with them, but has been well-traveled elsewhere. The 33-year-old hit .285 with 11 home runs and 32 RBIs in 2019 for the Yankees, who acquired him from the Cleveland Indians on April 25th. He has also spent time with the San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, and Miami Marlins, as well as the Houston Astros' 2017 World Series team. He is a career .256 hitter with 71 home runs and 347 RBIs.
In a couple other minor signings in baseball, the Pittsburgh Pirates tried to fill the void in their outfield after they dealt Starling Marte to the Arizona Diamondbacks, getting much more speed in Jarrod Dyson. The 35-year-old agreed to a one-year deal, which is still pending a physical. Dyson spent last season with the Diamondbacks and batted .230 with seven home runs and 27 RBIs in 130 games, but also stole 30 bases. Meanwhile, the Seattle Mariners gave Taijuan Walker a one-year contract that is worth $2 million. Walker confirmed the news with a tweet on Wednesday, as he can earn up to $3 million in incentives. This is the second stint for Walker in Seattle, as he played there from 2013 to 2016, but has spent the past three seasons in Arizona. The 27-year-old is still trying to get over missing two years following Tommy John Surgery, and is a career 31-31 with a 3.95 ERA over 94 career starts.
