Wow. Maybin has spent all of 6 games in AA this year and was called up to the big leagues. He went crazy in those 6 games, hitting 4 home runs (14 on the year), but that just seems incredible to me. He is 1 day younger than Jay Bruce is, and was taken right before Jay in the draft.
I think the guy will struggle big time in the majors this season. He is a ground ball hitter (61% of his balls in play are on the ground). He doesn't hit many line drives (10%). His game is really all about how fast he is, and he is really fast. He has raw power and is a very streaky hitter when it comes to his power. He his 5 home runs in a 6 game stretch earlier this year, then didn't hit a home run for over a month. He seems to go on mini runs like that often.
I hope the kid goes crazy and destroys the baseball this year for the Tigers, but I just don't see it happening this year.
